DANIEL KALUUYA REVEALS HE WASN'T INVITED TO THE PREMIERE OF 'GET OUT'!
Thursday, 25 February 2021
After the premiere of Get Out back in 2017, Daniel Kaluuya’s absence was very prominent and everyone wanted to know about why he wasn’t in attendance.
Now, he is finally opening up about his absence that the reason behind him not being there was simply because he wasn’t invited.
“No, they didn’t invite me, bro. They didn’t invite me,” Daniel shared. “[During] the Sundance world premiere [of Get Out], I was in Atlanta because I was shooting [Black] Panther.”
However, filming the Marvel movie wasn’t going to stop Daniel in his tracks from attending the event, until it kind of did.
“… And I cleared my schedule and I was like, ‘Yo, I really wanna do it.’ And then [I] just didn’t get an invite. I wasn’t invited.”
Daniel did say that someone from the Get Out crew had texted him from the event: “So I was just in my bed when somebody texts me, ‘Oh, it’s done really well.’ I’m like, ‘Alright, that’s cool. That’s alright.’”
His role as Chris Washington earned Daniel much praise, honor and recognition, including an Oscar nomination, so the fact that he was not invited is pretty bizarre especially owing to the fact that he was the main character.
The no invitation didn’t seem to hurt his relationship with director Jordan Peele though, as the duo are gearing up for a brand new project.
