In case you didn't know, baked beans are the new weapon of warfare. With this latest bit of news, I'm beginning to think that all the creativity in Hollywood is getting sucked into the fury of stars dealing with insidious paparazzi. Last year, some elderly bystanders were caught in the laptop crossfire between Denise Richards and two unauthorized photographers on the set of Blonde and Blonder. Now, we've got some gassy baked beans flying through the air of London. Forget all the sequels and remakes, when will Hollywood put out a film that brings all these stories together? They're too strange to just die on the pages of a paper here or there.

It seems that photographer Ian Whittaker ticked off Hugh Grant this week, which sent the British actor into a fury near his home in the British city. While the police won't confirm that it was Grant, they stated that a 46-year-old man was arrested after an allegation of assault on April 24, and will have to return to the station next month. According to the story flying around, it started off as a simple fight, with Grant kicking the photographer and kneeing him in the groin. But then, things get interesting. Somewhere, somehow, he had a family-sized tub of beans, which he threw at the photographer, leaving him "bruised, battered and covered in baked beans." The photographer claims that Grant got even nastier, telling him that he hoped Whittaker's two children would die of cancer, but the actor refutes the quotes. Moral of the story? If you're paparazzi, stay away from Hugh Grant. Or, if you're either a fan or friend, stay away from Grant's house, because no one should be eating that many baked beans.
