Hugh Grant has admitted that his infamous sex scandal with a sex worker has nothing to do with his longstanding campaign against the British tabloid press. The actor was arrested in 1995 for “lewd conduct” with a sex worker named Divine Brown. Speaking on The View, Grant discussed his campaign, Hacked Off, which aims to fight corruption in the media. He criticised “big newspaper owners” who invade the privacy of ordinary people to get the next big scoop. Grant also revealed that his campaign was inspired by the fact that no politician would dare to take on the powerful and influential press in the UK. Grant has previously described the incident in 1995 as a “moment of insanity”.
