We just know this man has much goss from movie sets in the 90s. 

Hugh Grant has said that mobile phones have made movie sets "so weird now" because actors no longer got drunk and fall "in love with each other."

He appeared on an American chat show during the week to promote his new movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

During the interview, host Stephen Colbert asked Hugh whether any of his costars ever tried to make him play the game the movie is based on after the actor admitted he had previously never played it or understood it.

"I think Chris Pine occasionally tried. There was talk of it, but I don't know," he said.

This prompted him to say: "Films are so weird now. They are weird because, in the old days, by the end of the second week, you were all getting drunk in the evening and having dinner and falling in love with each other and all of that."

He added: "All of that stopped because of telephones. Everyone goes home and looks at Twitter. It's so sad."

Which led Stephen Colbert to say, "So if there weren't telephones on set, there will be more affairs going on?"

To which Hugh said: "Yeah, I think so. You know, Tarantino banned telephones from his set, and quite right, too. And the people there, they do all shag each other, so I'm told."

We have to say we're so here for Hugh Grant's chaotic interviews, the man clearly doesn't a [beep].

The Dungeons and Dragons movie comes out in cinemas this Friday and will also star Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page (Bridgerton), and Chris Pine.
