Red carpet cringe! After Hugh Grant was slammed at the Oscars a look back at other awkward incidents

Hugh Grant shut down Ashley Graham and rolled his eyes at her in a red carpet chat branded ‘the worst interview ever’ at the star-studded Oscars   last week. 

The actor, 62, was not amused as he stepped out to the glitzy Los Angeles event, and openly showed his disdain towards the 34-year-old supermodel’s questions. 

The Four Weddings and a Funeral star kept his answers to her questions as short as possible and made his blatant disinterest well known in the uncomfortable clip. 

Kicking off the chat, bubbly Ashley exclaimed: ‘What was it like to be in Glass Onion? How fun is it to shoot something like that?’

But she was met with a cringeworthy response: ‘Well I’m barely in it, I was in it for about three seconds,’ Hugh quipped.

 I was on the red carpet doing interviews and the journalists were looking past me to see if someone more important was behind me.

So all the reporters went crazy for Kim and Kanye and I’ve always thought falling over is the funniest thing, so I took a dive in front of them. I couldn’t help myself.

‘They didn’t crack a smile which confirms they had no idea who I was, which is a relief.’
