Actor Hugh Grant admitted to losing his temper and flipping out at a chaperone during the filming of “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.” He originally assumed the woman was an executive who should have known better, but later found out she was a “nice local woman.” Grant compared his outburst to Christian Bale’s notorious temper tantrum and has previously admitted to having occasional short fuses.
Hugh Grant admits to losing his temper at a woman he assumed was a studio executive while filming “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” but later found out she was an extremely nice local woman who was the chaperone of a young girl, and he referred to his temper tantrum as “terrible” and joked that he did a “Christian Bale.”
Hugh Grant Apologizes for On-Set Outburst
English actor Hugh Grant recently confessed to having lost his cool and throwing a tantrum while filming the upcoming movie “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves”. Speaking to Total Film magazine, Grant explained how he had “misdirected” his anger towards a woman he thought was a studio executive. It turned out that she was the chaperone for a young girl on set.
Grant characterized his behavior as “terrible” and had to do a lot of “groveling” to make things right. The 62-year-old actor even joked about comparing his behavior with Christian Bale’s infamous meltdown on the set of “Terminator: Salvation”.
This is not the first instance of Grant having lost his temper on set. In fact, former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart once called him one of his worst guests ever.
Despite his reputation, Grant has drawn praise for his performance in “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves”. In an interview with Collider, he spoke enthusiastically about the script’s focus on “losers” and how he felt drawn to the characters’ plucky underdog status.
The film features Chris Pine, Justice Smith, Michelle Rodriguez, Sophia Lillis, and Regé-Jean Page, and will hit theaters on March 31.
While it’s never pleasant to hear of a celebrity behaving badly, it’s refreshing to see someone owning up to their mistakes and making amends. Here’s hoping that Hugh Grant learned from this experience and that we won’t see any more on-set outbursts from him in the future.
