Hugh Grant Thinks That Movie Sets Are Now Weird and Sad

On a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hugh Grant discussed the impact of cell phones on the vibe of film sets.

Grant complained about people using cell phones on the movie set during the show. He said it was “weird” because “people aren’t as close as they used to be.”

“Movies are so strange now. The Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves star said, “They are weird because in the old days, by the end of the second week, you were all getting drunk in the evening, having dinner, falling in love with each other, and all that.”

The actor from “Notting Hill” went on, “And all of that ended because of telephones. Everyone really does go home and check Twitter. It’s awful.”

Later, Colbert said, “So if there were no phones on set, there would be more affairs?”

Grant answered, “Yeah, I guess so.”

“You know, [Quentin] Tarantino doesn’t allow phones on sets, and that’s a good thing. Also, I’ve been told that everyone there slaps each other,” the 62-year-old said.

This month, Grant went viral for his rude answer to a question from model Ashley Graham during an Oscars red carpet interview.

Drew Barrymore recently explained on her show, “You think you’re getting this charming movie star, but what you really get is grumpy Hugh. Then you fall in love with Hugh, who is always angry.”
