Hugh Grant Takes On Twitter 'Trolls' By Sharing His Own Mugshot

The Notting Hill actor was arrested in Los Angeles in 1995 after being caught with a sex worker.

Hugh Grant has sent a clear message to his detractors after posting his own mugshot on Twitter.

In the lead-up to the upcoming election, the actor has become particularly vocal on social media, which has included campaigning with the Lib Dems as part of his endorsement of “tactical voting”.

As a result of this, those who oppose his views have been having their say in the Notting Hill actor’s mentions, which has apparently included bringing up his 1995 arrest after being caught with a sex worker in Los Angeles.

Proving he’s unbothered by his past being brought up, Hugh shared a photo of his mugshot, alongside former sex worker Divine Brown, with the message: “To my dear trolls. Hope this is helpful. Now you have more time to spend with mummy.”

Over the summer, Hugh made headlines when he branded prime minister Boris Johnson an “over-promoted rubber bath toy”.

“You will not fuck with my children’s future. You will not destroy the freedoms my grandfather fought two world wars to defend,” he tweeted. “Fuck off you over-promoted rubber bath toy. Britain is revolted by you and you little gang of masturbatory prefects.”

This, of course, swiftly caught the attention of Piers Morgan, who sarcastically referred to the actor as “Halo Hugh… Britain’s moral standard-bearer”, again posting a photo of his infamous mug shot.

After getting no reply, Piers – clearly pleased with himself – made the same joke two months later, again not getting any response from the Bafta-winning star.

Despite having campaigned with Lib Dem candidate Luciana Berger, Hugh accused the party of misleading people with a tweet earlier this week, after they claimed they were the “only” party that can “take seats off the Tories”.
