Hugh Grant called out for ‘rude’ behaviour towards Ashley Graham on Oscars ‘champagne’ carpet

Hugh Grant is being called out after a clip from his Oscars ‘champagne’ carpet interview with Ashley Graham went viral for all the wrong reasons.

The 35-year-old model was acting as an interviewer for US broadcaster ABC on the ‘champagne’ carpet ahead of the gala, when she asked Grant, 62, a series of standard questions.

Such questions included what he was looking forward to at the awards ceremony, who he wanted to win, and who he was wearing. The Notting Hill star, however, appeared as though he couldn’t be more disinterested in Graham’s line of questioning.

”No one in particular,” Grant responded when Graham asked if he was rooting for anyone to win.

When asked about his outfit – a tuxedo – and who made it, Grant simply dismissed it as a result of an unidentified tailor’s work.

Social media users are not impressed with Grant’s apparent attitude.

“Ashley Graham was so sweet and professional with Hugh Grant on the interview… and he’s just a dick 😣😒,” one Twitter user wrote.

”What a douche. Not that we didn’t already know,” one user said.

Grant’s seemingly offensive behaviour comes mere days after he admitted to going off at a “nice local woman” as he was filming Dungeons & Dragons.

”I lost my temper with a woman in my eye line on day one,” Grant told Total Film magazine.

“I assumed she was some executive from the studio who should have known better,” Grant said.

“Then it turns out that she’s an extremely nice local woman who was the chaperone of the young girl.”

The British actor said his temper tantrum was “terrible” and revealed his outburst concluded with “a lot of grovelling” on his part.

Grant’s film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is up for Best Adapted Screenplay.
