Drama is afoot on the Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves set as star Hugh Grant admits to losing his temper with a local woman on the set of his latest film.
Hugh Grant, who is set to star in the upcoming Dungeon & Dragons film as Forge Fitzwilliam, the rogue, has formally issued an apology because of an “outburst” during his first day of filming, during which he berated a woman that he reportedly believed to be a studio executive but was actually chaperoning a young girl on the set. “I assumed she was some executive from the studio who should have known better,” Grant told PEOPLE Magazine, admitting that he’s been doing “a lot of groveling” since the incident. According to Grant’s recollection of the incident, the woman, whose information has not been released, was standing in his eye line during the movie’s filming, which caused Grant to fly off the handle and is now causing the A-Lister a great deal of embarrassment.
Hugh Grant Apologizes for Latest Temper Tantrum
Hugh Grant isn’t unfamiliar with apologizing for his outbursts, either – whether he likes it or not, he’s gained a reputation for his “temper tantrums” over the years. According to Yahoo Entertainment, Hugh Grant was reportedly banned from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2012, with the host calling him “the worst guest” he’d ever had.
“I did have a tantrum backstage,” Grant later admitted when asked about the incident. “About once a year, I have a really mega-tantrum, and sadly he witnessed one.”
When speaking about this latest outburst on the set of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Grant was quick to compare himself to Christian Bale, who famously had a similar tantrum on the set of Terminator Salvation (2009), when audio tapes from the set caught him reaming out the director of photography after he’d stepped into Bale’s sightline. Christian Bale was also apologetic about his own outburst, calling the incident “inexcusable,” according to PEOPLE.
Hugh Grant’s latest temper tantrum is unlikely to have any effect on his standing among the cast of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which also stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Daisy Head, along with cameos from cast members of the D&D web series Critical Role.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, starring Hugh Grant, is set for theatrical release on March 31st. Don’t forget to catch it at a movie theater near you!
