Speaking to Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" about his new drama "The Undoing," actor Hugh Grant comically described his experience with the novel coronavirus.

Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman co-star in a new drama called "The Undoing," but that led to the actor hilariously describing his own undoing due to COVID-19, when he recently appeared on "The Late Show."

Stephen Colbert asked about current restrictions in Britain, as they went into lockdown for a second time. But soon Grant shared that both he and his wife, Anna Eberstein, contracted the novel coronavirus back in February.

WHAT IS THIS?

About a month ago, Grant tested positive for antibodies to COVID-19, confirming to him that he did indeed contract the disease at the beginning of the year, even though he didn't get tested at the time.

When Grant started feeling sick, he had no idea what was wrong. The novel coronavirus had just reared its head, and the actor comically recalled his symptoms while chatting to Colbert. At first, Grant's only symptom was a "terrible sweat," but then he started experiencing others as well and added:

"And then my eyeballs felt about three sizes too big and then this feeling as though some enormous man was sitting on my chest, Harvey Weinstein or someone. I thought, 'I don't know what this is.'"

DESPERATE TIMES, DESPERATE MEASURES

But then Grant lost his sense of smell. He realized this while walking down the street one day, and it sent him into a panic. The need to test how much he couldn't smell took over, which led to a comical quest.

He wanted to smell anything he could think of, including smelly armpits, garbage cans, and his wife's Chanel No. 5, but all that did is make him "go blind" since he sprayed it in his face.

It's not a talent she likes to indulge, since it puts her nerves into high gear.

'THE UNDOING'

In "The Undoing," Grant plays the role of a pediatric oncologist, Jonathan Fraser. A pillar of the New York community, Jonathan disappears when a young mother's life brutally ends. He also works with Nicole Kidman for the first time, as they star as husband and wife.

While Grant prefers doing one-off projects, he couldn't turn away the role in the new drama. The series looked "brilliant" to him on paper, and now looking back, Grant is "very glad" he agreed, feeling proud of their effort.

THE MULTI-TALENTED KIDMAN

Nicole Kidman's role in the drama series also reminded that she has an amazing singing voice, although it's not a talent she likes to indulge, since it puts her nerves into high gear.

Apart from acting in the series created by David E. Kelley, the 53-year-old Kidman also recorded the classic song, "Dream a Little Dream of Me" as its title theme, which showcases her beautiful voice.
