Jon Stewart found out the hard way what fans of "Bridget Jones's Diary" have known for years: Hugh Grant can play a pretty convincing bad guy.
In the 13 years he’s hosted “The Daily Show," Stewart has conducted plenty of tense interviews with powerful, high-profile people, but it turns out the worst guest he ever dealt with wasn’t a warmongering politician or an egomaniacal filmmaker. Nope, it was the floppy-haired rom-com star and phone-hacking victim, who paid a visit to “The Daily Show” back in 2009 to promote the instantly forgettable witness-protection comedy, “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”
The news came to light during a lengthy conversation with his friend and colleague Stephen Colbert, staged as a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey. During the course of their talk (recapped extensively here) Stewart said that Grant was the worst guest they'd ever had, even though “we’ve had dictators on the show," and that he vowed he would "never" invite him back.
