Hugh Grant comes off as kind of a dick in his most recent interview, TBH.
Grant appeared on Watch What Happens: Live to promote his new film this week, but he actually spent more of his interview saying gross things about women and dissing his former female co-stars, especially Renée Zellweger. Grant and Zellweger starred alongside one another in the first two Bridget Jones movies, and Bridget Jones’s Baby is Zellweger’s latest endeavor, while Grant declined to participate in the film.
The script “did come to me and they had a lovely idea for a film,” Grant admitted, but he continued, “I’m particularly difficult and queeny when it comes to scripts, and I couldn’t quite make the script work for me so they then made it without me, and that’s brilliant.”
That low-key shade wasn’t the only dig he made at Zellweger. During another part of the show, Grant was asked to look at photos of parts of the faces of his six most famous co-stars — Sarah Jessica Parker, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Julianne Moore, and of course, Zellweger — and identify them.
“Who is the one second from the right, because I’ve never seen her before in my life.” he said when asked about a photo of Zellweger’s forehead. “Oh, Renée!”
That incident really doesn’t make it very surprising that Grant joked about all his former co-stars, “They all hate me, I think.”
The rest of the interview was spent giving his opinion of all kinds of women and situations with women, as if anyone wanted Grant to say another word. When asked whether he’d ever hooked up with a fan, his response was an enthusiastic, “Oh, God, yes!” When asked whether he likes American women, he replied, “The chubbier the better.” And on his social life, which includes mixing with the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York? “They love me, those housewives. Wherever I go, I bump into a housewife… I may end up with one, yeah.”
