So what kind of offers has Grant been able to garner since the incident?

Measured on the fashion world's all-important celebrity appeal index, Vernon-based menswear company BC Ethic is a big-time success. The brand's vintage-inspired shirts--as essential to the retro lounge-lizard look as a dirty martini--have been seen on the backs of Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Matthew Perry and members of pop bands like the Goo Goo Dolls, Barenaked Ladies and Smashmouth.

Warner Bros. will play matchmaker between Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant on Friday with the debut of its romantic comedy "Two Weeks Notice." With that, the studio may want to give its own love affair with movie stars a rest. In the last year, Warner has been wrestling with an unusual concentration of relatively high-cost, and often underperforming, star vehicles. Among them: two previous pictures from Bullock, three from Robert De Niro and two -- both flops -- from Eddie Murphy.
