Jon Stewart has brought a variety of guests on the iconic sitcom The Daily Show, but, according to him, it’s a rather popular actor that gets the title as worst guest he’s ever had on the show.
Jon Stewart revealed that Hugh Grant was a absolutely terrible when he appeared on the show in 2009. From Third Beat magazine:
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? – 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.
Wow. To say his demeanor is worse than that of a dictator is pretty low, but scarily accurate!
