Hugh Grant Reveals He Had COVID-19, Says It Made His Eyeballs "Three Sizes Too Big"

The star of 'The Undoing' shared his intense bout with COVID-19 on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'.

Hugh Grant had coronavirus in February.

The Love Actually star has revealed he battled the virus in the early months of this year, admitting he struggled to be able to smell and his eyeballs were "three sizes too big".

He said: "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 and this ... a feeling as though an enormous man was sitting on my chest, Harvey Weinstein or someone. By then people were just starting to talk about this as a symptom.

"And I started sniffing flowers, nothing. 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 I sprayed my wife's Chanel No. 5 directly into my face. Couldn't smell a thing, but I did go blind."

And Hugh knows it was coronavirus as he recently had a positive antibody test.

Speaking on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he added: "I've had an antibody test, only a month ago. I still have those antibodies, so I know that's what it was."
