Hugh Grant has a surprise blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion, which was released on Netflix last month.
As reported by Buzzfeed, The movie, which has been super receptive from audiences, sees Daniel Craig step back into his role as detective Benoit Blanc, and Hugh plays his partner, Philip. In the very brief scene, Janelle Monáe’s character Helen shows up at Benoit’s home, where Philip answers the door.
Hugh confirmed that Philip is Benoit’s husband in an interview with Collider for his upcoming film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Hugh confirmed this as many theories went around.
Hugh was joined by his D&D costar Chris Pine for this chat, and a clip of the moment when he said that Daniel — who previously played James Bond — is his husband has gone viral. Many have claimed that Chris’s wholesome response suggests that he genuinely thinks that Hugh is actually married to Daniel in real life.
In the interview, Hugh says with a laugh: “It’s true, I’m married to James Bond.” Chris then seems taken back at first and after some pause, he looks genuinely happy as he beams at his costar and exclaims: “Oh f*ck, man, I didn’t know that!”
Sharing the moment to TikTok, a fan said, “I am fully convinced that Chris Pine took Hugh Grant 100% seriously and now believes he is married, in real life, to Daniel Craig,” and it didn’t take long for others to latch onto the theory.
Commenting on the post, one person said, “He 100% googled it afterwards 😭,” while someone else observed: “I love his reaction so much lmao. Confused but incredibly supportive nonetheless.”
Some even noted that he looked down to check for a ring!
And someone else echoed: “thinking about the video of hugh grant saying hes married to james bond and chris pine being very happy for him.”
However, Chris doesn’t in fact think that Hugh Grant and Daniel Craig are married to each other — he was actually just seriously blindsided by Hugh’s Glass Onion cameo.
