    Hugh Grant Slams British Tabloids

    LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 21:  Hugh Grant arrives to give evidence at The Leveson Inquiry at The Royal Courts of Justice on November 21, 2011 in London, England. 21 victims of phone hacking are appearing at the inquiry over the next five days. The inquiry is being lead by Lord Justice Leveson and is looking into the culture, practice and ethics of the press in the United Kingdom. The inquiry, which will take evidence from interested parties and may take a year or more to complete, comes in the wake of the phone hacking scandal that saw the closure of The News of The World Newspaper.

    Hugh Grant didn't hold anything back when he testified Monday at a highly anticpated, nationally televised hearing into media ethics in Britain. Public figures and other victims of hacking and stalking by the press are due to appear this week. Grant told the Leveson Inquiry that Rupert Murdoch's newspapers weren’t the only publications that hacked his phone for stories. In addition to their eavesdropping on calls, Grant also described a suspicious break-in at his London apartment that resulted in no property stolen but a detailed description of his home in a newspaper. He also accused the Daily Mirror of getting hold of his medical records.
