Journalist Piers Morgan, 56, branded Robbie Coltrane a “foul-mouthed fatso” in his latest tell-all article about the various celebrity encounters he has experienced over the years. According to Piers, he met the 71-year-old Scottish actor in a popular restaurant.
Writing sarcastically under the heading “warmest celebrity encounter”, Piers revealed the moment the actor had allegedly swore at him repeatedly.
Piers wrote: “Robbie Coltrane, whom I’d never met, once greeted my entrance to The Ivy with the words: ‘Oh no, not you, you f****** t**. F****** stay away from me if you know what’s f****** good for yer, yer ****, or I’ll f****** do yer.’
“The only thing the foul-mouthed fatso ended up doing that night was four starters and five main courses,” he concluded.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter named Robbie amid a number of high-profile celebrities in his Daily Mail article, which features the likes of Barbra Streisand, Dustin Hoffman and Beyoncé.
Piers decided to compile a list of his “All-Time Morgan Awards” as he prepared to leave the paper, mocking and praising various famous stars on his way out the door.
The journalist began his weekly diary with the Daily Mail in 2006 and will now be turning his attention to TalkTV, which he will be presenting on from early 2022.
Robbie is best known for playing Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series between 2001 and 2011.
He also played Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky in the James Bond films GoldenEye (1995) and The World Is Not Enough (1999).
The star began his career appearing alongside iconic British actors Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, and Emma Thompson in the sketch series Alfresco between 1983-1984.
In 2006, Robbie was appointed as Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to drama.
He was also honoured for his “outstanding contribution” to film at the British Academy Scotland Awards.
The actor married Rhona Gemmell in 1999 but the pair later separated in 2003 and eventually divorced.

They share two children together: their son Spencer, 29, and daughter Alice, 23.
Aside from Robbie, Piers also mentioned a number of other celebs in his article, including one talk show host that he described as his “kindest reviewer”.
He wrote: “Oprah Winfrey was the first guest on my CNN show in January 2011 and told the media afterwards: ‘Wow, it was one of the toughest I’ve done in 20 years.
“I had to go and have a hot bath and take a couple of painkillers afterwards. Piers is a tough cookie!’”
Piers also poked fun at his family under a section that he titled: “First and last TV interview with my children”.
Under it he wrote: “My three – then much younger – sons were with me on the red carpet at an event in LA when a reporter from celebrity show Access Hollywood asked them: ‘What’s it like having Piers Morgan as your dad?’
“Cue theatrically downcast faces, and the response from my eldest boy, Spencer: ‘It has its ups and downs.’
“To which middle son Stanley clarified: ‘Mainly downs.’ Then the ungrateful little wretches all fell about laughing.”
