Let's all take a moment to give thanks for awkward celebrity photo ops in general, and Hugh Grant's stellar example in particular.
It is the season for giving, after all, and the Brit has bequeathed to us all quite the pictorial gem, thanks to his impromptu photo session with a fan. Specifically, a fan who happened to be breastfeeding her baby at the time of the Kodak moment.
Well, a picture may be worth a thousand words, but we have just one for this snap: Awkward.
The 52-year-old big screen star posed for the eyeful of a fan shot over the weekend while at The Castle Inn in Dover, England.
The nursing mother, Natalie McMullan, happens to be the wife of the pub's owner and told the Daily Mail that the star approached her, arm extended, for a handshake, only to realize too late that her arms, and other body parts, were otherwise engaged. (As a recent father himself, Grant may also be comfortable with the totally natural act, though perhaps not the photo op element.)
Still, credit where it's due, and despite the pained grimace, Grant posed for the shot.
Well, one grinned, the other bared it.
