Ashley Graham is taking the high road!
The 35-year-old supermodel has been at the center of a social media firestorm this week. It wasn’t by virtue of anything she did, though! She was just the recipient of Hugh Grant‘s s**tty attitude!!
As Perezcious readers will recall, Graham caught the Love Actually star for a pre-show interview on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday night. But instead of being charming, or magnanimous, or even just halfway decent, Hugh chose to whine his way through the interview while offering Ashley literally less than nothing to work with on air. It was brutal!
The Sports Illustrated supermodel did her best to dodge the About A Boy star’s awards show antics at the time. And now, even after a social media outcry in her favor, Ashley is refusing to wage a war of words with the British-born A-lister!
On Monday afternoon, TMZ cameras caught up with Graham outside Los Angeles International Airport. But when the paparazzi photog asked Ashley what she thought about Hugh’s horrible attitude, she refused to take the bait:
“You know what? My momma told me to kill people with kindness, so there you go.”
There you go, indeed!!
The news outlet’s roving reporter tried to butter Graham up for a longer quote, but the model wasn’t buying it. Clearly, she did not want to call out Hugh! (Even though he honestly deserved it for that red carpet showing…)
As she walked towards check-in, she only had one more thing about her time at the 95th annual Academy Awards:
“I had so much fun. My feet hurt, though.”
We feel that!

What do U make of Ashley’s smooth Oscars deflection, Perezcious readers? There was definitely a “kill ’em with kindness” feel to her on-camera exchange with Grant. And now, since she clearly didn’t have anything nice to say, she chose not to say anything at all!
Good for her!!
