Unbelievable! Such an invasion of privacy!
Hugh Grant recently revealed that he plans to press charges against Rupert Murdoch's London tabloid News of the World, because he claims that they hired a private detective to hack into his phone and steal "all these notes with my PIN numbers, my phone numbers, my friends', my family's phone numbers, PIN numbers, bank accounts."
According to the actor, he only found this out because he was visited by Scotland Yard, who had apparently uncovered evidence suggesting all of this!
Claiming he feels certain that "big heads will roll soon," Grant says of the potential invasion of privacy lawsuit:
"I could sue, I am just deciding whether to do that or not. So little do I need the tabloid press that if I won a libel case against a tabloid paper now I would not want cash; I would want an assurance that they would never ever mention my name again."
We think that that's more than reasonable a request!
So wrong! Here's hoping they never do anything this invasive and wrong again!
