An “uncomfortable” interview with Hugh Grant and Ashley Graham from the Oscars 2023 red carpet has gone viral.
The annual awards show celebrating the last 12 months in film is taking place at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre tonight (March 12), with Everything Everywhere All At Once leading the nominees.

As the stars gathered at the venue, Graham interviewed Grant on the red carpet for ABC. The conversation quickly went viral online thanks to the British star’s concise answers. Asked if he was hoping to see anyone win, he replied: “No one in particular.”
Graham then asked, “What are you wearing tonight, then?” to which Grant responded: “Just my suit.” The presenter then asked the actor about shooting the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion, in which he made a cameo. “Well, I’m barely in it – I’m in it for about three seconds,” he said.

“Yeah, but still, you showed up and you had fun, right?” Graham continued. “Almost,” Grant said. After Graham wrapped up the interview, Grant walked away and could be seen raising his eyebrows.
Viewers have shared their reactions to the interview online. “Hugh Grant is the biggest D bag for this interview,” one Twitter user wrote. “Hugh, if you don’t want to be there go home. Worst Oscars interview ever.”

Hugh Grant and Ashley Graham's red carpet exchange about "Vanity Fair " (he was talking about the 1848 novel about shallow society, she thought he was referring to the 2023 magazine after party) is my favourite #Oscars moment of all time.

Anyone catch the eye roll Hugh Grant just gave after this live Oscars interview? Was he mad she called him a “veteran” of the Oscars or was he just mad at the world? pic.twitter.com/VVFAlYpH51
