“He’s just a d-ck”: Sandra Bullock’s Closest Friend Hugh Grant Gets Called Out for Being an ‘A—hole’ at Oscars 2023 After Claiming He Didn’t Root for Anyone to Win

Hugh Grant attended the 2023 Oscars, and even though you’d think that as an actor walking the red carpet at a significant awards ceremony, he would be prepared to do a few interviews. Sadly, it seemed to be completely false. During the ABC Oscars pre-show, he treated Ashley Graham with obvious disinterest and, in some cases, outright rudeness.

As he arrived at the 95th Academy Awards venue, the Notting Hill actor had a conversation with the host, Ashley Graham as part of ABC’s pre-show. On the ‘champagne’ carpet before the gala, the 35-year-old model was posing as an interviewer for a US broadcaster and posed a number of common questions to Grant.

Hugh Grant Slammed for His Rude Oscars Interview 

Hugh Grant has faced criticism for his Oscars red carpet interview. The actor spoke with model Ashley Graham in what People Magazine called “a brief, awkward interview” while in attendance at the 95th Academy Awards, rubbing shoulders with other big-screen celebrities before the ceremony.

When Graham spoke with the 62-year-old on the new ‘champagne’ carpet at the ceremony, she was serving as host of ABC’s Countdown to the Oscars. The 35-year-old host began her conversation with Grant by asking him what his favorite aspect of going to the Oscars was.

However, the Four Weddings and a Funeral actor gave her an awkwardly protracted pause before finally responding, “It’s fascinating… the whole of humanity is here … it’s Vanity Fair.”

The model answered, seemingly misinterpreting his reference to the magazine as being Vanity Fair rather than the 1848 novel by William Makepeace Thackery. “Oh yes, it’s all about [the] Vanity Fair [after party], that’s where we need to let loose and have a little fun,” she said.

“What are you wearing?” Graham continued by posing soft questions. “Just my suit,” he retorted scornfully. “Who are you excited to see?” He answered coldly, “No one in particular.”

She attempted to focus the conversation on his role in ‌Best Adapted Screenplay nominee for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery after clearly noticing his frustration. Grant rolled his eyes as he said their final words. The conversation quickly went viral, with many asking on social media why he stopped conducting an interview if he was going to be such a “d-ck.”
