(British actor Hugh Grant will not be charged over claims he threw a container of baked beans at a photographer and kicked him. The Love Actually star, 46, was arrested by police and bailed after allegedly attacking paparazzo Ian Whittaker, who was taking his picture outside the star's west London home in April (07). A Crown Prosecution Service spokeswoman says: "We have advised the police that there is insufficient evidence to charge Hugh Grant with any offence in relation to an allegation that he kicked a photographer.
"This is because there were clear discrepancies between the accounts of independent witnesses and those of the photographers involved. "In relation to a second allegation involving a take away food container, the CPS decided that a prosecution would not be in the public interest."
She added that the decision not to prosecute was down to "the minimal nature of the alleged assault and the lack of pre-meditation on the part of Mr Grant". Meanwhile he movie star reveals he is unsure about marriage as he has seen other couples lose their passion for each other when they wed.
The British bachelor boy split up from socialite girlfriend Jemima Khan in February (07) after three years together and was previously in a long-term relationship with model/actress Elizabeth Hurley. And while he admits being single at his age is worrying him, he's still not convinced marriage is the best option.
He says, "It's true that my age sometimes worries me. Each birthday is an almost unpleasant date - I told myself that being single in your thirties is fine, but at 46 it's a bit worrying. "I would like to get married, but at the same time I'm horrified by those couples that I see around me and the lack of affection and passion that can result from the passing of time."
