The strangely-voiced Hollywood actress is currently starring in By the Bog of Cats at the Wyndham theatre, but was "left fuming" when several mobile phones rang during a recent performance.
"It's disrespectful when phones go off, like happened tonight. There's no place for that in the theatre. I'm on stage giving a performance and I don't want to put up with it."
In an added statement that doesn't reek of hasty back-peddling at all, Hunter went on to say "Having said that, I think English audiences are quick-witted, intelligent and well-educated."
