Ashley Graham reacts to ‘rude’ Hugh Grant Oscars 2023 interview
Ashley Graham isn’t letting “rude” Hugh Grant get under her skin.
The model had an epic response when asked whether she took “offense” to the cold responses the actor gave her while she was interviewing him on Sunday’s Oscars red carpet.
“You know what, my mama told me to kill people with kindness, so there you go,” Graham, 35, told TMZ Monday.
Graham did not elaborate on the cringeworthy moment any further. However, she did say she still “had such a good time” while interviewing several other A-Listers on the carpet on behalf of the ABC pre-Oscars program.
Over the past 24 hours, Hugh has received severe backlash from online critics for his unenthusiastic responses to Graham’s red carpet interview questions.
During the interaction, which lasted less than two minutes, Graham asked the “Love Actually” actor a series of typical questions one would ask at an awards show.
When asked about “who” he was wearing, Grant bluntly responded that it was “just” his suit by an unnamed “tailor.” He also said he had “no one in particular” in mind for who he wanted to win Sunday night.
Seemingly at a loss for what to possibly ask Grant next on the spot, the model inquired about what it was working on the star-studded movie “Glass Onion.”
“Well, I’m barely in it. I’m in it for about three seconds,” he said, to which Graham asked if he at least had “fun,” and he quipped, “almost.”

Fans immediately took to social media to drag Grant, calling him an “a–hole,” “jerk” and “douche,” among many other not-so-kind words.
Despite having an awkward encounter with Grant, Graham still seemed to enjoy her time at the annual awards ceremony. She shared several selfies with more welcoming celebrities, like Rihanna, Melissa McCarthy and Austin Butler.
Khloé Kardashian may be looking for a new photo editor.
The “Kardashians” star re-posted a set of sultry Instagram photos after fans called her out for yet another Photoshop fail.
In the original since-deleted pics, Kardashian’s right leg bent awkwardly inward at the hem of her silver dress, seemingly in a failed attempt to make her legs look slimmer in one of the snaps.
The reality TV star’s upper and lower glutes looked disproportionate to one another in another pic, with her backside seemingly enhanced while trying to snatch in her waist.
Despite removing the photos, fans were quick to post screenshots of the alleged editing mishaps to Twitter.
“bro who tf photoshops their pics so badly,” one user tweeted alongside a close-up of Kardashian’s warped leg.
“The aluminium foil in the background to cover the photoshop ,” another joked about the metallic background, while a third added, “honey wake up new khloe kardashian face just dropped.”
After fixing some of the obvious errors, Kardashian — who is no stranger when it comes to Photoshop fails — shared news photos from BFFs Malika Haqq and Khadijah Shaye Haqq’s birthday party to her feed.
“Shimmer and Shine Baby! It’s a must for the twins 40th birthday ,” she captioned the flicks.
However, the snaps still appeared to be heavily retouched, especially the third photo in the carousel in which the foil in the background was noticeably warped to whittle down her waist.
“Show us the unedited ones. 3 pix ,” a fan requested once again, as another asked, “Are y’all seeing what I’m seeing .”
One thing Kardashian took to the birthday bash that she didn’t show online was her apparent plus one: ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
Although the former couple arrived separately at the Nice Guy in West Hollywood, fans are convinced the pair are back together given their tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship.

The pair have seemingly gotten closer in recent weeks after the “Good American” founder rushed to Thompson’s side following the death of his mother, Andrea Thompson, in January.
In fact, Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, posted a somewhat strange tribute to her daughters ex via Instagram Monday, saying he has been an “inspiration” to her — despite publicly humiliating Khloé due to his infidelity on numerous occasions.
Tristan “Third Trimester” Thompson is 32.
Kris Jenner posted a rambling birthday tribute to her daughter Khloé Kardashian’s unfaithful ex Monday, calling him a “special part” of their family.
“You look at the glass half full and it has been so great watching you grow as a dad, a friend, a brother, an uncle and a son,” the momager wrote of the NBA player in a series of Instagram Stories.
Jenner, 67, praised Thompson for showing her “such inspiration” and teaching her “many lessons when it comes to how you deal with adversity and challenges that seem insurmountable.”
“You have used these challenges as opportunities to better yourself day by day,” she captioned a photo of the athlete and his 4-year-old daughter, True, whom Kardashian, 38, welcomed just two days after her then-boyfriend was caught cheating for the first time.
Jenner also shared a picture of Thompson with his mother, Andrea Thompson, who died suddenly of a heart attack in January.
“I know this year has been hard so far, but you seem to find the positive and the light amongst the sadness,” she wrote, later adding, “I know how proud your mom is of the man you have become.”
The Kardashian-Jenner family’s matriarch went on to thank the Chicago Bulls center for being “such a special part of our family” before concluding her length message with, “We love you very much!!”
After Tristan lost his mother, Jenner, Khloé and Kim Kardashian attended Andrea’s funeral, suggesting that the family had once again put the basketball star’s repeated infidelities behind them to support him as he grieved.
Khloé’s appearance at the memorial service sparked rumors that she had reconciled with Tristan once more, though she clarified on Twitter in February that she was still single.
Later that month, Tristan was caught “liking” a multitude of sexy snaps on his former girlfriend’s Instagram, adding fuel to the speculation that they were back together.
The Good American co-founder was most recently spotted with Tristan last Friday as they partied together to celebrate her BFFs Malika Haqq and Khadijah Haqq’s 40th birthday.

The former Cleveland Cavaliers player’s on-again, off-again relationship with Khloé has been marred by multiple cheating scandals on his part over the years.
The exes share True as well as a 7-month-old son whose name they have yet to reveal.
Tristan also has a 6-year-old son, Prince, with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig as well as a 1-year-old son, Theo, with his onetime paramour Maralee Nichols.
Khloé last dumped Tristan in December 2021 after finding out Nichols was pregnant just one month after the then-couple hired a surrogate to have their baby boy.
Tristan initially denied being Theo’s father, but a paternity test found otherwise in January 2022.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” he wrote on social media at the time. “Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.”

Tristan has also publicly apologized to Jenner in the past, saying in a 2020 episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” that he felt “really sad” about letting her down one of the many times he cheated on her daughter.
And now it seems Jenner has accepted his apology.
