Hugh Grant Agrees With Jon Stewart That He’s Kind Of A Dick

It probably does not come as a surprise to anyone that Jon Stewart found Hugh Grant to be just as noxious as his Bridget Jones’ Diary character. But it is perhaps a surprise that he found Grant to be so difficult he will never invite him onto The Daily Show again.

Earlier this week at the Montclair Film Festival, Montclair resident Stephen Colbert interviewed his former boss and asked him about his least favorite guest of all time: Hugh Grant, who was promoting his 2009 rom-com Did You Hear About The Morgans?.  "He’s giving everyone s–t the whole time, and he’s a big pain in the ass," Stewart explained. "… [A]nd we’ve had dictators on the show." Chief among Grant’s whiny concerns were that he didn’t like the clip from the film played during the interview. The British actor is "never" coming back, Stewart huffed.

In typical oozy British style, Grant acknowledged Stewart’s comments and his own assholishness — but didn’t apologize. The actor tweeted yesterday:

If Hugh Grant was unpleasant for the one day commitment of a Daily Show appearance, we can only imagine what sort of secrets Renee Zellweger, Sarah Jessica Parker and the entire cast of Love, Actually are keeping mum.
