Internationally acclaimed actor Richard E Grant was apparently mugged in Cape Town while in South Africa on holiday.
The movie icon has a long history with South Africa, having studied English and drama at the University of Cape Town before moving to London in 1982.
Grant tweeted on Friday that he had been mugged while drawing cash from an ATM.
"Feel like a right mug having been mugged at an ATM in Cape Town. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr" he tweeted.
Grant, whose real name Richard Grant Esterhuysen, was born in Mbabane, Swaziland, where his father, Henrik Esterhuysen, was head of education for the British government administration.
He appeared to be on holiday with his daughter and mother.
