Jon Stewart banned Hugh Grant from ‘the Daily Show’

By brendon December 14, 2012 @ 2:40 PM


A film festival in Montclair, New Jersey, must be swimming in money, with people coming from around the globe to attend, but Stephen Colbert interviewed Jon Stewart as a fundraiser to get even more, and among many many other things, asked about ‘the Daily Show’ and the worst guest he ever had.

As implied by the headline, it was Hugh Grant. Third Beat magazine says:

Stewart’s least favorite guest of all time is Hugh Grant, “and we’ve had dictators on the show”. Grant spent his time at the studio complaining that he had other places to be. “He’s giving everyone shit the whole time, and he’s a big pain in the ass,” Stewart recalled.
Grant also complained to the staff about the clip that was selected of the movie he was promoting, Did You Hear About the Morgans? – a clip that was obviously supplied by the film’s publicist. Stewart recalls Grant angrily asking “What is that clip? It’s a terrible clip.” “Well, then make a better fucking movie,” Stewart said, adding that he would “never” have Grant back.

Ahh, this must be more of that internet bullying I’ve been hearing so much about. When Hugh Grant kills himself, it will all be Jon Stewarts fault.

    I love the concept of Jon Stewart (a Liberal who buys his mansions under his pet’s names to avoid paying taxes on them) complaining that someone else is a huge douche.

    The only thing that makes this story palatable is that if you combined both of their audiences, there are still more people watching reruns of Storage Wars.

    Your criticism might be a bit more stinging if you typed it in English.

    Stewart is awesome if you’re also a smug Liberal douche, so be proud of it I guess. Own it.
