Hugh Grant has faced backlash for his Oscars interview, which some are calling “heavy.”
Ashley Graham interviewed the British star on the red carpet, where the Glass Onion actor, known for his goofy humor, gave the interviewer a short and blunt answer.
Graham asked the 62-year-old if he was excited about the well-known actors winning, to which he replied: “No, not particularly.”
The driver tried again, “Okay, so what are you wearing tonight?
In response, the actor said: “Only my suit.”
The 35-year-old then asked Grant about the sequel to Glass Onion Beyond Knives , in which the actor made a cameo.
“So tell me, what was it like being in the glass onion?” he asked, “It was a really cool movie. I really enjoyed it. How do you make something like that?”
Grant said, “I barely got into it. I was about three seconds into it.”
Graham: “Yeah, but anyway, did you come and have fun?” replied, to which Grant said, “Um, almost.”
Meanwhile, netizens slammed the BAFTA winner for her unhinged look.
“Was this the most awkward Hugh Grant interview yet?!?”, commented one user.
“Don’t be interviewed if you don’t want to be interviewed,” wrote another.
“Hugh Grant was so rude during the interview! Ashley Graham handled it with grace. Her dizzy spell at the end was nasty!” said the third person.
