Hugh Grant has claimed that his daughter's mother Tinglan Hong has been "badly treated" by the media.

The actor said that press intrusion prevented him from attending the birth of his baby last September.

The 51-year-old told The Guardian: "I was at one of the party conferences, about to give a speech, and was pacing about on the end of the phone. I shouldn't have gone to the hospital at all, because it brought all this attention down on the mother's head. But I couldn't really resist it, so I went on the second day."

Chinese actress Hong later obtained an injunction which allows Grant to visit her and the child in peace.

Justice Tugendhat said at the time that Hong felt that she could not leave her home without being followed and hassled by photographers.

"Had we not got the injunction, I'm sure she'd be in China by now," Grant said. "She is a good person, a nice person; funny, clever, great mother. And she's been very badly treated by the media."

Grant will next be seen in The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists, which opens on March 28 in the UK and April 27 in the US.
