Actor Hugh Grant said his phone was hacked by the Daily Mail during an inquiry on U.K. media practices which learned that phone hacking extended beyond media tabloid giant News Corp.’s News of the World.
According to the Associated Press, Grant claimed his messages were hacked for a 2007 story that claimed he received late night calls from a studio executive. He also complained of a break and entry and theft of medical treatment records from journalists too.
Grant claimed that his meteoric success after the 1994 film “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” was intense, which was followed by his shaming in the press in 1995 after an arrest in Los Angeles with a prostitute.
Grant accused the Trinity Mirror’s Sunday Mirror, News Corp’s Sun, and Northern & Shell’s Express of running stories about his medical treatment as well.
