Grant admits to 'unfogivable' behaviour on TV show

Hugh Grant has admitted to being rude to staff when he appeared on ‘The Daily Show’ with Jon Stewart in 2009.

The ‘Cloud Atlas’ star acknowledged his “inner crab” got the best of him during the TV show appearance and said his conduct was “unforgivable”.

He tweeted: "Turns out my inner crab got the better of me with TV producer in 09. Unforgivable. J Stewart correct to give me kicking (sic).”

Hugh’s tweet came after Jon blasted him for being rude to his staff and insisted he will never be invited back.

Speaking at a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey recently, Jon said: "He's giving everyone s**t the whole time, and he's a big pain in the ass. And we've had dictators on the show."

Jon also revealed Hugh complained about the clip of his flop movie 'Did You Hear About The Morgans?' which was played on the show, asking "What is that clip? It's a terrible clip" to which the host replied "Well, then make a better f***ing movie."
