Transcript for Hugh Grant reveals his new quarantine skill: cutting hair
We are back now with Hugh grant, you know him for more than 40 films like "Four weddings and a funeral" and "Love actually" now starring in "The undoing." I know you've been living out quarantining with your family and young kids back in London. How is it going? Well, I have no complaints. I'm one of the lucky ones, you know, having said that, I'm quite old and my children are very young and I can't say that is entirely easy, but I've -- you know, there's been bonus, I've learned to cut hair. I started by cutting my daughter's Barbie's hair out of sheer boredom and I discovered I was extremely talented and then I started cutting my children's hair whether they wanted a haircut or not. I just strapped them to a chair and cut their hair. Yeah, your honesty on that one. You've said that you found yourself turning into your father. So what kind of dad would you say you are? I would say I'm enchanting but I don't know what the children would say. I do have some of my dad's traits. He was ex-army and lovely, plovely, butsuddenlyout of nowhere the most terrifying bark would come and I notice I do it makes all the kids cry. It makes my wife cry. It makes the neighbors cry. I have to say, you play a seemingly devoted father in "The undoing" and husband. I can't much more without giving anything away. How would you describe your character? It's a very difficult show to promote because it's full of, you know, mysteries and almost anything one says is a spoiler. But, yeah, in episode 1 you see I'm a lovely -- I'm a cancer doctor for children. I save children's lives. I love my wife Nicole kidman. I love my song. I'm a good father. I'm a nice man but you might think possibly this guy is too good to be true. Is there a little bit of viscose mixed in with the cotton of the shirt? A bit easy to iron then it all starts to unfold. We get to see New York before the pandemic again as well. I want to show everybody just a little bit of "The undoing." The sooner we get out the better. I got an early flight to Cleveland. When do you get back? Possibly tomorrow night if I can get away but you know I do hate to forfeit my reward points. That's how you get the complimentary breakfast, grace. Okay, here we are. Slump, dread, sob, despair. Look at me. Now is it true Nicole had to beg to you do this? No, she's a liar. She keeps saying that. I was honored. I mean, it was an extremely classy offer. It was Nicole kidman who's got a zillion oscars, it was wonderful, a Danish film director who has won lots of TV awards, "Bird box," and then the greatest TV writer in America, David Kelley who wrote "Big little lies," little big lies," I've never gotten this right. It really enrages Nicole. And it was very high pedigree. Of course, I had to say yes. We can't wait to see it. "The undoing" premieres this Sunday on HBO. Hugh, thanks for coming back. Also going to stream on HBO max.
