A-list celebrity Hugh Grant makes FA Cup magic for Fulham’s tie with Sunderland but has the view blocked through the pole
FULHAM fan and Hollywood A-lister Hugh Grant traveled to Craven Cottage on Saturday to see his side in the FA Cup.
But he seemed to have blocked his view of what was happening with a pole.
Craven Cottage was built in 1896 and is the oldest football stadium in London.
And despite a shiny new Riverside stand currently under construction, there are still some structural obstacles elsewhere in the ground.
In today’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland, ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Notting Hill’ star Grant was spotted peeking around a pole while sitting in the crowd.
He seemed to lean to the right to get a better view of what was happening.
The movie star looked stylish in a flat cap and jacket as he watched his beloved Fulham take on the Black Cats.
Although Grant, 62, had to wait a while before he had anything to cheer about.
Home side Fulham went down with a goal against Championship side Fulham just six minutes into the game.
Jack Clarke put the visitors ahead and struck home after capitalizing on an Issa Diop error.

And the high-flyers in the Premier League had to wait until the 61st minute for skipper Tom Cairney to equalise.
Captain Cairney showed excellent footwork to dodge two challenges before shooting past Anthony Patterson.
Sunderland thought they had won it in death when 15-year-old Chris Rigg found the back of the net, but the goal was ruled out for an offside position in the build-up.
It ended 1-1, meaning the two teams will have to give it their all again in a replay for a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
