Stars from all over the world walked the red (champagne) carpet at the Oscars 2023 tonight at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Hugh Grant was one of the actors arriving at the event, wearing a black and white combination tuxedo. While the 62-year-old looked dashing, his carpet interview left fans disappointed. He was slammed for eye-rolling during the interview.
TV presenter Ashley Graham got the opportunity to interview Hugh as he walked down the champagne carpet at the Oscars 2023. But his answers to her questions seemed like the actor was rude and uninterested.
Fans claim Hugh Grant’s interview was “cringe-worthy”
In the Oscars 2023 carpet interview, Ashley Graham was seen trying her best to get Hugh Grant to answer her questions. Instead of giving direct and detailed answers, the actor delivered either one word or confused answers.
Fans were upset with Hugh for turning the interview awkward and cringe-worthy. His eye roll at the end also became a big topic of discussion on Twitter.
Take a look at fans’ reactions over Hugh's red carpet interview:
Hugh Grant’s interview answers to Ashley Graham’s questions at the Oscars
Ashley asked Hugh a few questions about Oscars 2023 nominations and his cameo in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story. To note, he did a cameo as Rian Johnson in the 2022 star-studded movie.
Here is a small excerpt from the interview between Ashley and Hugh at the Oscars 2023 carpet:
“Probably you’ve watched a few of the movies, are you excited to see anybody win? Do you have your hopes up for anyone?”
“Ummm…not…not…no one in particular.”
Ashley: “Okay! Well, what do you wearing tonight then?”
Hugh: “Just my suit.”
Ashley: “Your suit!!! Who made your suit? You didn’t make it.”
Hugh: “I can’t remember my tailor.”
Ashley: “That’s okay! Shoutout to the tailor. So, tell me what does it feels like to be in Glass Onion? It was such an amazing film, I really loved it. I love a thriller. How fun is it to choose something like that?”
Hugh: “Well, I am barely in it. I am in about three seconds.”
Ashley: “Yeah, but still you showed up and you had fun, right?”
Ashley: “Okay, Alright! Thank you so much, it was nice to talk to you.”
As soon as Ashley turned towards the camera, Hugh was seen eye-rolling, before saying, “yeah.”
The Notting Hill actor is one of the presenters at the 95th Academy Awards. He appeared on the second list of celebrities who will present awards tonight.
In addition to Hugh, other presenters include Salma Hayek, Antonio Banderas, Halle Bailey, Nicole Kidman, Deepika Padukone, Jessica Chastain, John Cho, Elizabeth Banks, Danai Gurira, Florence Pugh, Andrew Garfield, and Sigourney Weaver.
