Hugh Grant: rug smuggler

We all know about Hugh Grant’s arrest for his LA liaison back in 1995.

But the flop-haired star has something even worse hidden up his sleeve. Grant has recently confessed to being a rug smuggler.

That’s right – the Four Weddings and a Funeral star told OK Magazine how he once tried to smuggle top Turkish rugs through British customs. He was caught and arrested at the airport for evading duty on imported goods.

"I've been arrested... for smuggling. I smuggled. It was a very long time ago. I was coming back from Antalya with a girlfriend with some rugs. We were such idiots. We came through an airport in the middle of the night and thought no one would check. So we went through (the) 'nothing to declare' (channel), but were stopped.”

The actor and his girlfriend of the moment were arrested and eventually sentenced to death. No – not really. But however did this one get by the paps, Hugh?
