Subject:Why I love Femalefirst, and Hugh Grant's Manila Folder Attack

Posted this on my journal, but just wanted to share my love of UK online tabs and of Hugh Grant:

I love femalefirst.com, a site which regularly features headlines like  "Victoria Beckham Too Thin And Slutty - Peaches Geldof" and  "Bizarre News: Pencil in Penis". They've developed making a mountain out of a molehill down to a consice gossip art form. But what they lack in realism they make up in sensational surrealism. 

Today the website reports of an unpleasant confrontation Hugh Grant had with a photographer. The beauty of this story is that it is entirely compatible with every stereotypical Hugh Grant characterization I've developed in my imagination through the years (i.e. a person embodying that very rare hybrid of haughty, rude, crude, and charming). Hugh's the kind of guy I'd imagine sleeping with a Russian diplomat's wife in a London cab on the way to having tea and biscuits at 3:00 with the Queen and discussing the major works of Lord Byron. If you were to cut him I'd imagine he'd bleed cigarettes and dirty martinis. Anyway, you'll find the whole the story after the cut with extra Hugh Granty bits highlighted (including Hugh calling a man a pussy and smacking him with a folder). Enjoy.








Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant allegedly kicked a photographer in the butt after he refused to stop taking his picture.


The heartthrob actor is also said to have hit the shutterbug with a folder and swore at him during the incident in New York's Central Park on Tuesday (21.02.06).


The British star had been walking by himself when the paparazzo appeared and started taking photographs.





Hugh pulled out his mobile phone and took a picture of the snapper, saying: "How do you like it, mate?"




Former New York Daily News spokesman Ken Frydman - who witnessed the incident - said the photographer kept taking photos.

The furious actor then called him a "p***y" and bashed him with a manila folder.




Frydman said:




  "The photographer kept smirking at him. He said, 'I don't know what you're so mad about'. "




Hugh is then said to have shouted: "You're invading my privacy. This is your last warning, you c**t."




Frydman added: "The photographer kept taunting him. That's when Grant kicked him in the butt. Not hard - he was just trying to shove him away."




The man, who has not been identified, kept taking pictures as Hugh stormed off.









Also, I must say that the Brits certainly out do North Americans in the fine art of swearing.
