Hugh Grant’s post-scandal chat declared best moment of Leno’s Tonight ShowMay 25th, 2009 - 3:33 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 25 (ANI): Hugh Grant’s first TV chat after his headline-making arrest in 1995 has bagged the top prize in a new magazine poll of the best moments of The Tonight Show, during comedian Jay Leno’s tenure as its host.
Entertainment Weekly magazine has put together the best bits of comedian Leno, who is set to end his 17-year tenure with the late-night show on May 29.
And Grant’s interview, after he was taken into custody for misdemeanour lewd conduct in a public place with Hollywood prostitute Divine Brown, has taken the cake in the survey, reports Contactmusic.
The Mickey Blue Eyes’ actor’s infamous episode went on to beat President Barack Obama’s historical appearance in March, along with Leno’s tete-a-tete with Arnold Schwarzenegger when he announced his candidacy for California Governor in 2003.
The chat show king had sent the crowd into laughter when he began his interview with Grant in July, 1995, asking, “What the hell were you thinking?” (ANI)
