Barry Jenkins Is All of Us Wondering How Hugh Grant Could Afford His Flat in Notting Hill

On Thursday, Moonlight director Barry Jenkins made everybody laugh when he silent watched Notting Hill on his flight home and live tweeted the whole thing. After hilariously explaining how Julia Roberts was "TEW MUCH FOR HUGH," the Oscar winner asked the one question that's been on everybody's mind ever since the classic British rom-com came out in 1999: how did Hugh's character, who is travel bookstore owner, manage to own a house right in the center of Notting Hill? After all, this pretty location is one of London's most expensive neighborhoods, and unless you discover that you are the lost Prince or Princess of Genovia, you probably won't ever be able to afford the steep property prices. *Cue the tears*

Ahead, read Barry's hilarious Twitter thread.
