Coldplay lead singer, Chris Martin, and Hugh Grant were both guests on The Graham Norton Show. Little did everyone know is that Chris Martin is Hugh Grant’s biggest fan. Martin gushed over the leading man and it made for a funny but slightly uncomfortable moment.
Martin confessed to being “a giant fan of Hugh.” And while Grant replied, “Likewise.”
“I sent him fan mail as a 40-year-old man,” Martin says. “Recently.” And while Grant reveals that he was “very flattered” by it, Martin wasn’t done. “But every time I met Hugh, he’s very grumpy,” Martin continues. “He’s like, ‘whatever rock star, f–k off,’ and then starts flirting with your other half. This is true.”
“About two years ago, this was after A Very British Scandal, I thought, you know what? I’m going to tell Hugh that I think he’s wonderful,” Martin says. “I’ve loved his work ever since he started 45 years ago. I really have. And after British Scandal and Paddington 2, I think I just wrote, ‘Hey, I love you.’ And he replied and was very gracious.”
“I don’t come out of this too badly,” Grant jokes.
Coldplay recently released a new album titled, ‘Everyday Life.’ The album is the eighth studio album by British rock band, released on November 22, 2019. It is a double album, with the first half titled Sunrise and the other Sunset.
