LONDON (AP) — Actor Hugh Grant says he believes his phone was hacked by British tabloid the Mail on Sunday — the first time he has implicated a newspaper not owned by Rupert Murdoch in the wrongdoing.
Grant told an inquiry into media ethics that a 2007 story about his romantic life could only have been obtained through eavesdropping on his voice mails.
Grant said he could not think of any other way the newspaper could have obtained the story about his conversations with a "plummy voiced" woman.
Grant is giving evidence Monday at Judge Brian Leveson's inquiry.
