If Hugh Grant were ever again dark the doors in front of The Daily Show buildings, Jon Stewart would personally roll up the carpet, lock the doors and turn off the lights, because Hugh’s is highest on the show’s UNWANTED list.
Jon was chatting with the ever flawless Stephen Colbert at The Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey last Friday, December 7, when he threw shade the size of the Empire State Building about Hugh’s one and only appearance on the show a few years back:
He’s giving everyone s–t the whole time, and he’s a big pain in the ass,” Stewart recalled of Grant’s appearance to promote Did You Hear About the Morgans? in 2009, Third Beat Magazine reports. “And we’ve had dictators on the show.”
Stewart added that Grant complained about the movie clip that had obviously been supplied by the film’s publicist, saying Grant was angrily asking, “What is that clip? It’s a terrible clip.”
“Well, then make a better f–king movie,” Stewart said, adding he would “never” have Grant back on The Daily Show.

Damn son. When Jon Stewart hints that even asshole dictators are welcome back on the show but Hugh Grant’s prostitute lovin’ ass isn’t…well, that doesn’t speak highly of Grant, now does it?
Here is the interview with Jon and Hugh…and now it seems rather uncomfortable knowing Jon probably wanted to shove a coffee mugh down Hugh’s gullet the entire time.
