In the years that have passed since 1999 when the “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” went on the air, there have been countless memorable, funny, fantastic and horrible guests to sit down with Stewart, but who is the worst guest Stewart has ever had?
Jon Stewart recently sat down with friend and fellow late night show host Stephen Colbert at the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey last week when the topic came up – and who was the lucky winner of the title of worst guest ever? That honor went to actor Hugh Grant.
Hugh Grant was a guest on “Daily Show” in 2009 to promote his film “Did You Hear About the Morgans?” and he apparently made such a bad impression on Stewart that he never wants to have him as a guest on the show again! Apparently while on set Grant was not the most pleasant guest to be around. “He's giving everyone s--- the whole time, and he's a big pain in the a--," Stewart said, noting that Grant was even complaining that he had other places to be and more important things to do.
When Grant found out what clip from his film would be played in the interview he was not too pleased, and remarked "What is that clip? It's a terrible clip.". “Well, then make a better f------ movie” says Stewart.
Hugh Grant got wind of Stewart’s remarks and took to Twitter to give his response.
“Turns out my inner crab got the better of me with TV producer in 09. Unforgivable, J Stewart correct to give me kicking.”
Do you agree with Stewart’s choice of title for the British actor? Who do you think are the best (and worst) “Daily Show” guests so far?
