Hugh Grant has been called as a witness by London police in the tabloid phone hacking scandal, the actor told Sky News.

Grant went on ‘The Early Show’ with Chris Wragge where he said that the scandal surrounding News of the World has reached a pivotal moment, and that he will be investigating the man who hacked into his phone, reports CBS News.

Grant revealed on “The Early Show” that he engaged in a conversation with the hacker at a pub in which the man revealed much about the voicemail hacking.

“One of the many interesting things he told me . . . is that it was, in fact, all the tabloid newspapers were very enthusiastic phone hackers,” Grant said.

“And then he told me some of the even more chilling stuff about the sinister relationship between, particularly, the Murdoch tabloids, news international ones and the Metropolitain Police who were meant to be investigating phone hacking, and basically dragged their feet for a long time. He admitted that money changed hands between the two organizations and he talked about the very unsettling cozy relationship not only between this prime minister and the Murdoch news organization, but basically all our prime ministers going back to Margaret Thatcher who've all realized they can't get elected unless the man who controls 37 percent of our powerful print media in the country is on their side. And they will go through the humiliating hoops to keep Rupert as their puppeteer,” the British actor said.
