Hugh Grant Scalds Boris Johnson

In this interview, Hugh Grant also discussed a new election video from the Conservative Party parodying a famous scene from Love Actually – starring Grant as the prime minister – in which Andrew Lincoln’s character knocks on Keira Knightley’s front door with a series of messages written on cards. In the Conservative version, it’s Johnson at the door holding cards displaying messages urging a vote for his party.
Although Grant admitted that he thought the Love Actually spoof video had “high production values,” he joked that perhaps the video was where “all the rubles went,” referencing the millions of dollars reportedly given to the Conservatives from Russian donors.
He also said that he noticed the sign from the original saying “And at Christmas you tell the truth,” wasn’t shown in the parody.
