During a red-carpet interview with Ashley Graham at the Oscars Sunday (March 12), Hugh Grant gave the model nothing to work with. After shrugging with his hand on his hip when Graham called the 62-year-old actor a “veteran of the Oscars,” he kept his standoffish attitude throughout the remainder of the interview.
“What’s your favorite thing about coming to the Oscars?” asks Graham, keeping up a cheerful manner. Grant blinks a few times before replying, “Um… Well, um…” Laughing at her question, the Love Actually star finally came up with the words. “It’s fascinating. The whole of humanity is here. It’s vanity fair.” Slightly taken aback at his response, Graham tried to play along with Grant.
In an attempt to continue the interview, Graham then asks Grant who he’s most excited to see. The actor just says, “No one in particular.” Things get even more awkward when Graham asks about what he wore for the evening and Grant goes, “Just my suit.” Grant says he couldn’t remember the name of the tailor for his tuxedo.
Finally, she went on to ask about his experience filming his cameo in the recent Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. “Well, I’m barely in it. I’m in it for about 3 seconds,” he responded. When Graham asked if he had fun doing the film, he responded, “Almost.”

Take a look below at what Twitter had to say of the exchanges. But suffice to say, sometimes it’s best to not do interviews if you don’t feel like being interviewed!
