Ashley Graham praised by fans after 'rude' interview with Hugh Grant at the Oscars

Ashley Graham praised by fans after 'rude' interview with Hugh Grant at the Oscars

Hugh Grant was pulled aside by Ashley Graham for a chat on the red carpet.

Ashley Graham fans have praised the model after her painfully awkward interview with Hugh Grant at the Oscars.

Some viewers think the Love Actually star was being 'rude' to the presenter, who pulled him aside for a quick red carpet chat at this year's Academy Awards.

Take a look at the cringeworthy interview below:

A smiling Ashley started the interview by asking the British actor if he was looking forward to the prospect of a certain actor or film picking up the coveted prize, to which Hugh replied: "No, not one in particular."

Trying again, Graham asked the most common red carpet question: "OK, well what are you wearing tonight, then?"

The actor simply said: "Just my suit."

Remaining upbeat, the model followed up with: "So tell me what was it like to be in Glass Onion?

"It was such an amazing film. I really loved it. How is it to shoot something like that?"

Hugh replied: "Well I'm barely in it, I was in it for about three seconds."

OK. Well, powering through the chat, Ashley added: "Yeah, but still, you showed up and you had fun, right?"

"Erm... almost," the actor responded.


The presenter soon realised she got everything she could out of the interview and decided to wrap things up.

Fans of the model have since leaped to her defence, as one person commented: "Glad I’m not the only one who though he was being rude. Lol."

Another added: "That probably felt like hell for that poor woman."

A third person questioned: "Dunno who signed him up to that interview but he could have displayed a little more courtesy and tact."


However, others pointed out how she misunderstood Hugh's 'Vanity Fair' comment, which was most likely a reference to William Makepeace Thackeray's 1848 novel of the same name rather than the after-party.

One person said: "I mean, maybe don’t ask a famous misanthrope what he 'loves about the Oscars?' And then misunderstand the reference to 'Vanity Fair' as the after-party instead of the 19th century eat-the-rich novel?"

That comment was met by the response: "What else was she supposed to ask AT the Oscars? He’s a misanthrope who also spent quite a bit of time getting ready, walked the red carpet, and will be there for hours, all of which is 100% voluntary.

"This isn’t on Ashley. If you don’t want to talk, don’t take the mic. The end."

Another person also argued: "She did a great job and so did he.

"If you don’t like the answers, don’t ask the questions.

"Vanity Fair answer threw her.

"Pretty sure the party is not what he was referring to."
