See if you can spot the hatred.

During a Colbert/Stewart event last week, among other interesting things revealed, Jon Stewart said that Hugh Grant was the worst guest he's ever had, and he would never have him back.

 

"Stewart’s least favourite 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? Jon Stewart almost quit Daily Show over “asshole” coworkers – 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."

 

Here is the interview.

Stewart certainly seems jovial when they sit down, even though by this time he was apparently already seething.  It seems like they just had a little fun with some of the mistakes Stewart made in describing the film, and it's Stewart who is kiddingly apologizing.  Just a couple of good actors, I guess.
