Twitter blasts Hugh Grant for being rude during red carpet interview
What's Trending with MJ
Hugh Grant is getting heat for being a bad interviewee.
He was being interviewed ahead of the Oscars by Ashley Graham for the ABC preshow, and the actor was clearly not in the mood for typical award show talk.
He gave very short answers, and it looked like he rolled his eyes at the end.
Granted, how many times can you be asked, “Who are you wearing?” before losing your patience, but people think he was a flat-out jerk.
“Who are you excited to see?” she asked.
He replied, “No one in particular.”
When she asked him about his appearance in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, he responded, “I’m barely in it; I’m in it for three seconds.”
When she tried desperately to save the interview, she responded, “But still, you showed up and had fun, right?”
Hugh was having none of it smarmily commenting, “Almost,”
That’s when Graham ended her misery and elegantly ended the interview with a simple “Thank’s so much, it was nice to talk to you.”

Then it looks like Grant rolls his eye before the cameras cut away.
Viewers were quick to comment on Grant’s attitude, with some saying “Hugh Grant was an a–hole. Don’t interview if you don’t want to be interviewed.”
Another wrote, “She was promoting HIM and his work, and Grant was rude and dismissive in response. Like it’s so hard being rich and famous.”
