Hugh Grant to Thief: Please, at Least Give My Script Back

Hugh Grant's car was broken into Sunday, and he wants one thing in particular back. No, not his wallet. "In the unlikely chance that anyone knows who broke into my car tonight and stole my bag, please try and persuade them to at least return my script. Many weeks worth of notes and ideas," the actor tweeted before adding one more thing he'd like returned: "And perhaps my children’s medical cards." He ended, per Variety, with the West London address of his production company. Responses varied from people advising him not to leave valuables in his car to tips about getting his script back (set up an alert for his name on eBay, check trash bins near where his car was parked). As of this writing, no word on what script it was or whether it had been returned. (Grant is one of those celebs you never thought would have kids.)
