Stewart was speaking at a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey when he
revealed his disdain for Grant.

“He's giving everyone s*** the whole time, and he's a big pain in the a**. And we've had dictators
on the show,” he said.

Stewart also revealed Grant's displeasure at the clip they showed of his film 'Did You Hear About
The Morgans?' during their interview.

Grant reportedly said: “What is that clip? It's a terrible clip,” to which Stewart quickly shot back:
“Well, then make a better f***ing movie.”

Stewart is known for his up-front style of interviewing, taking on politicians, presidents and celebrities on his Comedy Central show.
