Hugh Grant Is Being Called Out For His Interview With Ashley Graham On The Oscars Red Carpet
Hugh Grant showed up at the Oscars, and youd think he'd be prepared to give a few interviews due to being an actor walking a carpet at a major awards show, but ... not so much. Hugh is being widely criticised for seeming rude and dismissive to Ashley Graham as she attempted to interview him during ABC’s Oscars pre-show and he is being called out on Twitter as a result. Here’s the interview:
Hugh Grant is the biggest D bag for this interview. Hugh, If you don't want to be there go home. Worst Oscars interviews ever. #Oscars #Oscars2023 #HughGrant pic.twitter.com/Yx7MWbav4q

As many have pointed out, Graham seemed to be trying her best to do her job, swiftly moving on to the next question as Grant appeared unwilling to engage. A brief transcript if you can’t deal with the secondhand awkwardness of that clip:
Lol Hugh Grant just gave the most dickish red carpet interview I’ve ever seen—
Ashley Graham: Who are you most excited to see tonight?!
Hugh: To see?
AG: To see win
Hugh: No one in particular
AG: Okay. Who are you wearing?
Hugh: My suit

As one person put it: 'Why was Hugh grant so rude?? Shout out to Ashley for holding up the conversation. / getting through that.' And as another said, 'Ashley Graham deserves an honorary Oscar for putting up with Hugh Grant. Don’t walk the carpet if you don’t want to talk about THE ACTUAL OSCARS.'
Ashley Graham deserves an honorary Oscar for putting up with Hugh Grant. Don't walk the carpet if you don't walk to talk about THE ACTUAL OSCARS.

Wow @ashleygraham just earned her paycheck on that interview with Hugh Grant. She was gracious and persistent through his obvious desire to not be there. Why agree to an interview if you have no interest in participating?? 🙄 #Oscars

You don't have to be that much of a dick, Hugh Grant. I mean you really just don't. #AcademyAwards #Oscars

Is Hugh Grant just an arrogant dick all the time? He was so rude to Ashley Graham on the red carpet, complete with an eye roll. Maybe he should stay home if he's too good for his industry of choice #AcademyAwards

Hugh Grant is definitely the type of person who is rude to servers after waiting 30 seconds for a menu. @ashleygraham you were amazing.
