Typically we don’t hear too many horror stories involving British actor Hugh Grant, but Jon Stewart has messed up that fairly clean record because, according to The Daily Show host, Grant is a “big pain in the ass!” He must have been a real jerk because Stewart admitted that he’s actually banned him from ever appearing on his show again.
According to reports, while speaking at the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey, Stewart mentioned what a horrible experience he once had with the 52-year-old actor when he appeared on his show.
Says the comedian: “He’s giving everyone shit the whole time, and he’s a big pain in the ass.”
At the time, Grant was there to promote his 2009 movie Did You Hear About The Morgans, which ended up being a huge flop. Stewart says that Grant bitched about the clip they chose to show of the film.
According to Stewart, this is what came out of Grant’s mouth: “What is that clip? It’s a terrible clip,” to which smartass Stewart quipped, “Well, then make a better f**king movie!”
Stewart wins it every time. Don’t even try it Grant.
I found the video of the interview and Grant must have said this after his time on-air, but he does seem rather smug and bothered by something. What a baby!
