Graham tried to segue into fashion, asking him, "What are you wearing tonight then?"

"Just my suit," the actor said, noting he couldn't remember his tailor.

Graham concluded her brief interview with Grant by inquiring about his experience filming Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. "Well, I'm barely in it. I'm in it for about three seconds," he shared.

"But still, you showed up and you had fun, right?" Graham said with a hopeful expression, to which he nonchalantly responded, "Uh. Almost."

The Graham-Grant interview gained traction online as viewers couldn't help but notice how tricky it was for her to navigate, blasting the actor as "rude" in a number of scathing tweets.

"Major yikes. Hugh could have just not agreed to be interviewed. Flowers to Ashley for handling this with grace," one read. "He didn't understand the assignment," another sounded off.

"She was getting NOTHING!" a third wrote. "I said the same thing! Great job Ashley. Maybe he should try acting like a decent human!!!" a fourth echoed.

Grant previously spoke out about his cameo in an interview with Collider.

"It's the tiniest little moment," the actor also said of his role. "I don't really know why they wanted to do it but anyway, I thought Knives Out 1 was brilliant," Grant told the outlet. "And so yeah, I thought why not? I turn up for a few hours."
