A couple A-listers demonstrated the art of the apology this week.

First, Justin Bieber was caught on tape telling a racist joke (when he was 15 years old) - but the singer quickly released a lengthy, heartfelt apology, dismissing his latest scandal far more easily than other recent slip-ups.

Jonah Hill then used an anti-gay insult to slam a cameraman, yet he also jumped on the issue and admitted his word choice was disgusting.

How do these mea culpas compare to past instances of regret exhibited by actors, artists and athletes?

A copy of a birth certificate obtained by Us confirms that Grant's child was born at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital in London on September 3.

The baby's first name is not listed, but his surname is "Grant," and the actor's name, Hugh John Mungo Grant, is listed as the father on the document.

Coincidentally, Eberstein was pregnant at the same time as Tinglan Hong, who gave birth to her second child from Grant, son Felix, in December 2012.

There's no word yet on the status of Grant's current relationship with either Anna Elisabet Eberstein or Tinglan Hong ... but this is playing out like a movie.

And not the kind of movie you want to take your family to. For that, you can always watch Love Actually online. Always a fan favorite right there.

At a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival on Friday night, Jon Stewart sat down with Stephen Colbert and spoke on a number of issues:

How close he came to quitting The Daily Show after landing the gig; how he can't watch the opening to his 9/11 episode; and how much he absolutely hates Hugh Grant.

“He’s giving everyone shit the whole time, and he’s a big pain in the ass,” Stewart said of Grant's 2009 appearance.

Hugh Grant's baby mama Tinglan Hong is going to extremes to protect her privacy.

A British High Court approved an injunction on behalf of the actress, with whom Hugh had an unplanned child in September, forbidding paparazzi from snapping pics of her and the newborn outside her London home or in the street.

She welcomed Grant's first child, a girl, in late September.

Per the BBC, a judge granted the court order on November 11 stating that celebrity gossip media members were making the 31-year-old's life "unbearable."

Consequently according to the court, Hong, whom Grant is no longer seeing, has been forced to change her phone number after receiving "terrifying" calls.

The little bundle of joy is a girl, but Tinglan Hong has apparently not settled on a name. Instead the court refers to her in court docs by the initials KLM.

"While Hugh Grant is very well known, the first claimant [Ms. Hong] never sought any publicity or been known to the public for any reason," wrote the judge.

"She and Mr. Grant did their best to keep private the fact that the second claimant was their child and do not know how the information reached the public."

Hugh Grant is a first-time father.

A source close to the actor tells Us Weekly he welcomed a girl into the world a few weeks ago, though the child's mother remains a mystery. In April, at least, Grant was rumored to be dating Chinese actress Tinglan Hong.

"He's going to be a great dad!" the insider tells the tabloid. "He's beaming about his daughter. He's not with the mum anymore but he's absolutely thrilled."

Grant most famously dated Elizabeth Hurley for 13 years, but he paid $40 for a blow job from a prostitute named Divine Brown in 1995, eventually leading to a split from the gorgeous star.

A new report says CBS came very close to crossing the Atlantic to find a replacement for Charlie Sheen.

Deadline Hollywood states that Two and a Half Men was oh so close to finalizing a deal with movie star Hugh Grant - for $1 million per episode - until the British actor pulled out due to "creative differences."

While Grant had never been mentioned previously as a replacement, he fits the stated goals of Chuck Lorre and company. He's a big name, he's a very different actor than Sheen.

CBS is hoping to find a new star for the sitcom by the time it presents its fall schedule in New York City next week.

Do you think Grant would have been right for a role on Two and a Half Men?

Hugh Grant has a new woman in his life, and recent photos of the couple show that the relationship may not be the only thing he's keeping a secret.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Grant has been on a series of dates with his rumored new Chinese girlfriend Tinglan Hong, who's looking pregnant.

Of course, the swollen belly she supposedly shows could be attributable to a large number of things. But the two have been together since January.

The couple were seen out over the weekend in London and in one particular photo, it appeared that Hong had a rounded belly, leading to pregnancy speculation.

In any case, the 32-year-old has grown close with Grant, 50.

A pal told News of the World, "Hugh and Ting have grown increasingly tight in recent months. They see each other most days and she's a big part of his life."

Enough to settle down and start a family? Eh, it's Hugh Grant. Wait until the official announcement before you put a lot of stock in this rumor. That's our take.

Apparently Demi Moore, Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher aren't the only former spouses and new husbands who get along like best of friends.

Hugh Grant tagged along with Elizabeth Hurley, her five-year-old son Damian and Hurley's new businessman husband, Arun Nayar, to Seychelles island, off the East coast of Africa, where they vacationed on October 24.

Hugh Grant, Liz Hurley & Arun Nayar: Two's company... three's a crowd?

Elizabeth Hurley, 42, and Hugh Grant, 47, certainly weathered a lot over the course of a 13-year relationship, namely him appearing in many romantic comedies, as well as soliciting oral sex from a cheap hooker, before parting ways in 2000.

But Elizabeth Hurley has maintained they remain close friends.

In fact, the handsome actor is even one of Damian's godfathers, and was even invited to Elizabeth Hurley's fabulous March nuptials with Arun Nayar.

The actor was a no-show, however, because he did not want to create a media craze and take the attention away from the Austin Powers star's big day with Nayar.

How nice. Here's hoping other feuding couples and third wheels - such as Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller - can learn from this example.
