Pair of charming chins Hugh Grant and George Clooney have been emailing one another over their shared enemy: irresponsible tabloids. Grant, who wrote a 2011 article in the New Statesman about the phone-hacking scandal, bonded with Clooney about his frustration with the Daily Mail earlier this year. This exchange prompted the highest of British compliments: In Grant’s book, George Clooney is both a “good egg” and a “good bloke.”
