GMB's Susanna Reid cringes at Hugh Grant's Oscars interview as 'grumpy' actor slammed

Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid was left cringing as the ITV show aired a clip of Hugh Grant being interviewed by Ashley Graham on the Oscars red carpet.

The Four Weddings and a Funeral actor appeared deeply disinterested with the chat at the 95th Academy Awards, as he threw up roadblocks to each of the model's questions.

Susanna appeared to relate to Ashley’s plight after previous stints of her own as a reporter on red carpets.

She told co-host Ed Balls and ITV viewers: “I’ve been there on the red carpet and the problem of course is if you are the reporter, it’s knowing exactly who’s coming towards you. It’s also a problem if the person you interview doesn’t particularly want to give you an interview.

“Spare a thought for ABC’s Ashley Graham. She saw Hugh Grant, who is famous for sometimes being a little bit short with his words.”

The ITV show then played a clip of the interview, which saw Ashley ask the 62-year-old what he was most excited to see at the ceremony but a confused Grant hit back that he wasn't particularly looking forward to any award.

Attempting to get something out of the interview, she continued: "What are you wearing?" But Hugh simply replied: "My suit."

In a last-ditch attempt, she asked about his brief role in Rian Johnson's murder mystery Glass Onion, saying: “What was it like to be in Glass Onion? How fun is it to shoot something like that?”

“Well I'm barely in it, I was in it for about three seconds," Hugh replied, shutting her down.

"It still must have been fun though, you had fun right?" she then replied but once again the actor mustered up an uncomfortable response and said: "Erm... almost."

In the ITV studio, Ed Balls said: “He’s sometimes quite grumpy,” as Susanna laughed in disbelief at the clip.

Ed added: “Nightmare. Can you imagine that? She’s trying so hard and he’s giving nothing. I mean, come on. Raise your game.”

During the ceremony, Grant reunited with Andie MacDowell on stage nearly 30 years after the release of Four Weddings And A Funeral.

The duo presented the award for best production design - which went to Netflix ’s All Quiet On The Western Front - three decades after starring in Richard Curtis’s 1994 romantic comedy.
