HUGH GRANT TALKS COVID RECOVERY: During a virtual appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the 60-year-old Hugh Grant revealed that he recovered from COVID-19 earlier this year. “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,” recalled Grant. “Then my eyeballs felt about three sizes too big and this feeling as though some enormous man was sitting on my chest, sort of Harvey Weinstein or someone.” He continued: “And you get more and more desperate — I started sniffing in garbage cans. You know, you want to sniff strangers' armpits because you just can't smell anything. I eventually went home and sprayed my wife's Chanel No. 5 directly into my face. Couldn't smell a thing, but I did go blind!”
