Ashley Graham reacts to awkward Hugh Grant Oscars interview

Ashley Graham reacts to awkward Hugh Grant Oscars interview

The actor was very short with her, with some people criticising his behaviour and others more sympathetic

Ashley Graham has responded to her awkward Oscars interview with Hugh Grant which had a lot of people hiding behind their hands.

She caught up with the actor at the 95th Academy Awards - though not a whole lot of catching up actually happened.

Watch here:

The interview seemed to get off to a rocky start when Graham referred to the 62-year-old as a 'veteran of the Oscars' - which he didn't seem to love - before asking the Brit for his thoughts on the awards do and his 'favourite thing' about the Oscars.

To which Grant replied: "Well, it's fascinating... the whole of humanity is here. It's vanity fair."

Graham seemed to misinterpret his answer as a reference to the Vanity Fair afterparty, before asking him what he was most excited about seeing and if he had any favourites he'd like to see pick up some of the major awards.

But again, he wasn't really giving much away, saying: "No one in particular."

Moving on to his suit, the 35-year-old model then asked: "What are you wearing?"

"My suit," replied Grant, dryly.

Hugh Grant was really not interested.

In a last bid to salvage anything from the interview, Graham moved onto Grant's brief appearance in the hit Netflix movie Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

She said: "What was it like to be in Glass Onion? How fun is it to shoot something like that?"

And yet again, Grant wasn't playing ball, replying: "Well I'm barely in it. I was in it for about three seconds."

"It still must have been fun though, you had fun right?" Graham probed for a last time.

Hammering the final nail into the coffin that was this interview, Grant replied: "Erm... almost."

Reacting to the interview, many people thought Grant was out of line, while others thought it was understandable that he was a bit fed up and short.

TMZ has since caught up with Graham at LAX Airport, asking her if she was offended by Grant's responses.

It was seemingly an ordeal for both of them.

"You know what, my momma told me to kill people with kindness, so there you go," she replied.

On social media, a lot of people hit out at Grant and praised Graham.

"Hugh Grant was so rude during his interview," wrote one. "Ashley Graham handled it with grace. His eye roll at the end was obnoxious! Don't agree to an interview if you're going to be an ass."

Another commented: "Why was he so rude … ?? Then he rolled his eyes when he walked off."

Not everyone felt like he was out of line, though. Some argued that he was just treating the 'stupid' questions with the disdain they deserved.

Backing the actor, one user said: "Hugh Grant wasn't rude like so many people have posted, I don't think the interviewer or the people who think he was rude know Hugh Grant. Ask a stupid question get a stupid answer."

While someone else put: "I've reviewed the tapes and can inform you Hugh Grant was not being rude, just English."

Comedian David Baddiel agreed, tweeting: "Those on here having a go at Hugh Grant for being rude on the Oscars red carpet have perhaps mixed up the word rude with the word real."
