Hugh Grant, the king of British Rom-Com, has revealed this week that he was going from very rough times during this pandemic. He used to suffer many embarrassing symptoms in earlier this year after getting infected by Coronavirus.
And at the time of speaking to Stephen Colbert, the presenter on Saturday night at the Late Night Show, he mentioned the time when he was getting infected from COVID-19 in February, the early days of UK crisis. Along with him, his wife, Anna Eberstein, also got infected living in London.
Hugh said: “We have antibodies, I’m rather proud of them.”
“I got it in February, I had an antibody test only a month ago and I still have those antibodies, so I know that’s what it was.”
He described: “It started as just a very strange syndrome where I kept breaking into a terrible sweat. It was like a poncho of sweat, embarrassing really.”
“Then my eyeballs felt about three sizes too big. Then this feeling that an enormous man was sitting on my chest, Harvey Weinstein or someone,” Hugh mentioned.
The actor said and joked: “I started sniffing flowers, nothing.”
“You get more and more desperate, I started sniffing in garbage cans. You want to sniff strangers’ armpits because you just can’t smell anything.”
“I went home and sprayed my wife’s Chanel No.5 directly into my face, couldn’t smell a thing… I did go blind.”
