Actor Hugh Grant is issuing an apology to The Daily Show host Jon Stewart for his behavior during a 2009 interview on the show. His comments come after Stewart made headlines by calling Grant the worst guest he has ever had on the show.
Stewart told Stephen Colbert at the Montclair Film Festival last week that Grant was his least favorite guest ever.
“He’s giving everyone s**t the whole time, and he’s a big pain in the a**,” Stewart said.
He added that Grant even complained about the clip from Did You Hear About The Morgans? that the producers showed the audience. Stewart remembered Grant calling it a “terrible clip,” to which Stewart said, “Well, then make a better f**king movie!” The comedian said that he’d “never” have Grant on again.
The Cloud Atlas actor took to Twitter to issue an apology, writing that his “inner crab” got the best of him. “J Stewart correct to give me kicking,” he added.

Grant has not starred in many films since Did You Hear About The Morgans? in 2009, although he did recently appear in Cloud Atlas. He has been a vocal critic of the UK media during the News of the World phone hacking scandal.
