    Kebab Time says:

    Opps, Quality control seems to be lacking at the Tax avoiding, pedo supporting Guardian.

    “Celeb reads more than one paper shocker”. Really?

  6. 6
    Ah! Monika 2013 +1 says:

    The Guardian is there. He’s hiding it behind The Times’ cover

  7. 7
    Point of information says:

    Shouldn’t this be pwned rather than owned ?

  8. 8

    Really? Does this count as news? Slow days at Fawkes towers? And who says he can’t read more than one paper?

  9. 9
    Joss Ayinglike says:

    Good to see his newspaper’s wearing protection.

  10. 10
    Polly toynbee says:

    He only reads the guardian when I am in it.

  11. 11
    13eastie says:

    The truly excellent crossword puzzle within justifies absolutely the price of a copy of the Guradian, even if the preservation of one’s dignity requires a further purchase of Razzle (or possibly even the Times) with which to effect its concealment.

    Hugh twat says:

    Look I am a sanctimonious twat, get over it

  13. 13
    B Norman, Film Reviewer says:

    This is a still from Hugh’s latest film:

    The Englishman Who Went Out to Buy the Guardian but Bought the Times Instead

    GUBU says:


    I hide mine in a copy of Razzle. I wouldn’t want my neighbours thinking I’m some sort of leftist puff.

    There are also fewer spelling mistakes in Razzle.

  16. 16
    It's my party so I will sware if I have to says:

    Where was I Grant, oh yes, of course, you Spike characters – you do tend to get around, don’t you, old boys. Put some clothes on omd boy, we might get visitors.

    Song for Michu, who helped slaughter Chelski last night at home, the iberian celt from north west Iberia,

    He’s on the right, by the way, tories.

  17. 17
    Sir William says:

    That’s Hugh on his morning paper round.

  18. 18
    Mary Scary says:

    He also has the Daily Star wrapped up in his copy of the Leveson Report.

    Can't use me old moniker says:

    DarrenRJones says:

    Whats the strap line for the new Hugh Grant Guardian Ad? “I like to pick it up on the street.”

    They nailed the talentless one-note fucker a treat on Family Guy.

  24. 24
    Raving Loon says:

    The Times? Aren’t they owned by the same media mogul who owned The News of the World?

    Just thought I should spell it out.

  25. 25
    Brian Leveson says:

    What ya gotta ask yourself, punk, is “Do I feel lucky?”. Well, do ya?

  26. 26
    It's my party so I will sware if I have to says:

    Grant’s two mate’s from such,

    Julia, in her early knickers,

    throwing them over the fence to the neighbours.

  27. 27
    Loftytom says:

    Hugh only looks at the pictures mate.

    Puzzled of Pontefract says:

    No offence intended, but can I be the only one here who has no clue what you’re on about?

    Crap actor reads crap papers shocker! says:

    Pity Grunt can’t play more than one character though and a shit floppy one at that.

  32. 32
    Hugh are you, ok says:

    no chance, I’ve learnt my lesson.

    How much again?

  33. 33
    Simon Hughes says:

    I like to pick it up i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶a̶ ̶t̶a̶x̶i̶ on the tube.

    Divine Brown says:

    Shit films…they aren’t that good.

  35. 35
    Hugh are you, ok says:

    Notting Hill, and that overeducated fungus that calls himself Hugh Grant?

    No? well I am wasting my fingers here.

    Wheres Liz Hurley?

    George says:

    wow, lots of real jealous people here commenting about him.

    Just remember you keyboard gangsters, he’s done more for the average british guy than 99.999% of other british men.

    He’s pretty much the sole reason why you can fly to america and bang as many american chicks as possible….why? because they all think we’re a gentlemen because of the stereotype we have because of actors like him.

    So…I tell you all, say thanks and quit pretending you’ve done something useful for the male species.

    What’s “owned”? Is it another degenerate yankism?

  41. 41
    lola says:

    The BBC subtitles (which I use to watch telly when Mrs L is asleep) interpreted the twats name as ‘You Grunt’. Couldn’t have put it better myself.

  42. 42
    Hang The Bastards says:

    The whinging useless has-been actor will be phoning Leveson as we speak about that photograph.

    What an infringement on his life, I mean it shows him to be a lying bastard

  43. 43
    Divine says:

    He played ok with me honey.

  44. 44
    Quiet Bat Person says:

    ‘Owned’ is how the Grauniad spells ‘pwned’.

  45. 45
    CarryHole is a Dismal Hunt says:

    Both the grauniad and huge rant hate press freedom.

  46. 46
    Osama the Nazarene says:

    Hugh Grant is a hypocrite.

  47. 47
    Osama2 the Nazarene says:

    Hugh Grant is a hypocrite.

  48. 48
    Lol says:

    Good point there.

  49. 49
    JH230923495834 says:

    Yes, that’s right.

    All positive feelings yanks have about the British male are down to Hugh Grant.

    I suppose they all think we are fiends for public daylight car sex with downscale hookers too?

  50. 50
    Jimmy says:

    Apparently he’d forgotten his voicemail password and wanted to check his messages.

  51. 51
    Joe McCarthy says:

    He’s just a whinging sex-crazed commie

  52. 52
    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    One wonders what some of the more strident feminists amongst the ranks of the Guardian columnists (Bindel, Bidisha) think of their paper’s standard bearer.

    After all hiring hookers off the street to honk you off in the back of a car hardly seems to sit well with their views of what constitutes acceptable male behaviour.

  53. 53
    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    I think it could be put slightly better!!!

  54. 54
    fitzfitz says:

    … wee Hugh “Hacker” Grant’s TV appearance after the Divine episode is a useful template for the ghastly Lance Armstrong’s planned cathartic exercise with that black woman …

  55. 55
    Boudicca says:

    I still can’t believe this joke of a man has been given the power to influence what I may read in my daily newspaper.

  56. 56
    fitzfitz says:

    It is unclear at this point whether Divine was in the back of the car or in the front …

  57. 57
    Marion the Cat says:

    Another member of the tribe that look at themselves in the mirror and feel that everybody loves them.

    This of course means that we will slavishly believe in everything they grandstand about. Its why they do it folks.

    What they dont realise is, nobody else thinks they are that good and wise.

    So unbeknownst to them lose more followers than they gain.

    Obvious if you think about it, anyone with money can get their knob sucked.

  58. 58
    who why what where when says:

    Principles are sidelined when it comes to furthering the cause.
    Rather like Shami Chakrabarti sharing a platform with Max Moseley?

    Baron Hogwash says:

    Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.

    Bliar says:

    Its the FoxNews of blogs , wadda ya expect?

  61. 61
    Divine Brown says:

    Sheeeet Hugh you’s a 24 carat ASSHOLE I’m tired o’ yo cussin’!
    You got caught wid yo pants down.
    Whut de hell wuz ya’ thinkin’
    You’s is nodin’ but some honkyfool.
    You be shittin yo pants at some BLACK pussy yo white boy pussy!

  62. 62
    Cary Grant says:

    I think you ALL have the WRONG Grant stereotype of the perfect Englishman in USA.

  63. 63
    Divine says:

    You have obviously never seen me, or seen me in action.

  64. 64
    David Niven says:

    I concur.

  65. 65
    David Niven says:

    Cathartic exercise? Harpo gave up doing any exercise years ago.

  66. 66
    The gripper says:

    Is that your purse he is clutching?

  67. 67
    Dick Milliband says:

    Is the Groiniad a paper?

  68. 68
    Max Clifford - honestly says:

    So it’s the Times of July? 2011. Which means that if he bought it for himself, he might then have decided to read The Gaurdian instead from then on, making him a regular reader for the last 18 months, which is 17.9 months longer than most people, including any staff which haven’t yet been made redundant.

    Or – he could have been buying it for a friend. (OK, not very likely – he has no friends).

    Or he could have bought it because on this particular day it gave him the best review he’s ever had – ‘Hugh Grant isn’t quite as awful as he is in all his other films.’

    Roger Moore says:

    Me too * dons tight safari suit*

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
