“I’m auto-tuned a bit, but not as much as some,” Grant shared. “Drew Barrymore was in that film with me and I don’t think she’d mind me saying her singing is just horrendous,” he admitted. “I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”
He continues to critique the performance, crediting the editing team to spicing up the vocals. According to Grant, after “they tuned her up” she “sounded way better than [him] because she’s got heart and voice and rock ‘n’ roll.”
These comments are coming on the heels of Grant recently going viral for allegedly rolling his eyes at Ashley Graham at the Oscars. Spectators were calling him an “a**hole” all over social media.
None Too Happy
He also discussed his feelings about the 1999 film Notting Hill. He called it “nauseating.”
Notting Hill is a 1999 romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. The film follows the story of William Thacker (Grant), a down-on-his-luck bookshop owner in Notting Hill, London, who falls in love with a beautiful movie star Anna Scott (Roberts). Despite their differences, they find a connection and attempt to make their relationship work despite the pressures of fame and fortune.
“In that nauseating moment on the bench at the end, I’m reading Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières, which was going to be [Michell’s] next film,” Grant shared. “So it’s a little in-joke from Roger Michell, God rest his soul.”
He also discussed how he lost his temper on a “nice local woman” while filming Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.”
