Drew Barrymore defends Hugh Grant after interview with Ashley Graham
Drew Barrymore defended former co-star Hugh Grant on Friday amid controversy over whether Ashley Graham’s fashion show on the Oscars red carpet was rude.
a Video of Graham interviewing Grant At Sunday’s Oscars went viral earlier this week, as some people decried Grant’s blunt responses and the potential for this to happen.
Grant also had plenty of defenders. Some found his lack of enthusiasm for small talk blunt relevant. Others have suggested that the backlash was a result of cultural differences Between the United States and the United Kingdom, with The Washington Post asked“Is Hugh Grant rude or just British?”
Barrymore, who appeared alongside Grant in 2007’s “Music and Lyrics,” had her own explanation: the actor was simply his “angry” self.
“There’s this thing going on with him and Ashley Graham on the red carpet. People are like, ‘Oh, he’s so despicable, and she got dumped,'” the talk show host said. He said on Friday’s episode Or her “Drew Barrymore Show”.
She continued, “I’m like, ‘No, this is Hugh Grant. You think you’re getting this glamorous movie star, and what you’re really getting is Angry Hugh. And then you fall in love with Angry Hugh.'”
The Never Been Kissed actress stole the red carpet while discussing another Grant-related topic: his recent description of Barrymore’s singing voice as “homely. “
At her presentation, Barrymore was ridiculed for his apparent rudeness. “If you know Hugh,” she said, “this is his way of loving you.”
Her opinion of Grant appears to be much higher than he once expected, perhaps surreptitiously, in 2009. When asked Elle magazine To talk briefly about some of the stars he’s worked with, he said of Barrymore: “I made her cry. An amazing movie star face. He hates me.”
