Jon Stewart on Hugh Grant: Worst. Guest. Ever.

by at . Comments

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.

The host went on to say that the actor complained to the staff about the clip played from Did You Hear About the Morgans?.

“What is that clip? It’s a terrible clip," Grant supposedly said, to which Stewart shot back appropriately: "Well, then make a better fucking movie."

Would Stewart ever have Grant back? "Never," he said.
