Hugh Grant is under fire after his awkward interview with Ashley Graham on the Oscars red carpet.
The model was one of the on-air hosts for ABC’s "Countdown to the Oscars" before the ceremony kicked off. She asked the actor standard questions, to which his responses were brief.
Graham began by asking what his favorite thing about the Oscars was, and Grant replied, "It’s fascinating. The whole of humanity is here. It’s a vanity fair."
When asked if he was rooting for anyone, Grant replied, "No one in particular."
Fashion is always a topic of discussion at award shows. Graham asked about what the "Notting Hill" star was wearing, and he simply answered, "My suit." Graham attempted to follow up, and Grant credited his tailor.
Graham also asked about his appearance in "Glass Onion." Grant brushed it off and said, "I’m barely in it, I’m in it for like three seconds." She asked if had fun while filming, and he briefly answered, "Almost."
The actor became a trending topic on Twitter, where people were not pleased with how he interacted with Ashley.
"Is Hugh Grant just an arrogant d*** 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."
"This poor interviewer…the night hasn’t even started and Hugh Grant has already had it."
"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."
