Actor and anti-Brexit campaigner Hugh Grant believes Britain is “finished” after Boris Johnson’s election win ensured Britain’s departure from the European Union.
“I know that a few weeks ago you were campaigning,” an interviewer from the Associated Press asked Grant as part of his media tour for The Gentlemen.
“I’m just wondering, how are you feeling now that everything is kinda settled? Are you encouraged any?”
“No, it’s a catastrophe,” replied the ageing heartthrob, without a hint of levity.
The interviewer’s reference to Grant’s own campaigning in the December 2019 snap election may have proven something of a sore spot.
