Daniel Kaluuya Revealed He Wasn’t Invited To The “Get Out” Premiere Even Though He’s, You Know, The Main Character

“You don’t wanna be in a place that you don’t feel wanted.”

The horror/thriller was an instant hit when it was released back in 2017, and it helped to thrust leading man Daniel into the mainstream following a performance that saw him nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars and Golden Globes.

However, though he made sure to clear his schedule so he could attend the premiere, Daniel said the invite never arrived and he spent the night in bed!


“On the Sundance world premiere, I was in Atlanta because I was shooting [Black] Panther,” he said. “I was chilling, I cleared my schedule. I was like, ‘I really wanna do it.’ And then just didn’t get the invite. I wasn’t invited, so I was just in my bed – someone texted me, ‘It’s done really well.'”

So no hard feelings, I guess! You can watch Daniel’s interview with Graham Norton here.
