The shade is SO real. During his appearance on ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ Hugh Grant failed to recognize Renee Zellweger while playing a game. Eek!
They’ve starred in more than one movie together, but while playing a co-star identification game on Watch What Happens Live actor Hugh Grant, 55, claimed he had “never” seen Renee Zellweger, 47, before. This is crazy!
“Who is the one second from the right, because I’ve never seen her before in my life?” Hugh asked host Andy Cohen. The British actor was then shocked to find out who it was, exclaiming “Oh Renée!”
Renee was just one of six co-stars that appeared on the screen from their nose up, so he could only see her eyes and forehead. The other actresses shown were Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, and Sarah Jessica Parker. However, Renee is the only one who has made headlines for her changing looks recently, especially after looking completely unrecognizable on a red carpet in October 2014.
The shade throwing did not end there for Hugh, though. He told Andy that it would be “pushing it” to call any of the female co-stars shown “down to earth,” and then admitted that he believes they all “hate” him anyway. Well, if they didn’t before… they probably aren’t too thrilled with him now!
