Hugh Grant was arrested in 1995 for receiving oral sex from a prostitute near Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, just a few weeks before the premiere of his film "Nine Weeks." This was convenient because it allowed the charming actor to hit the promotional circuit and apology circuit in one fell swoop. Jay Leno famously asked, "What the hell were you thinking?" "I did a bad thing, and there you have it," Grant told Leno, and after some nervous conversation and appropriate contrition, Grant promoted the film.
