Daniel Kaluuya Reveals He Wasn't Invited To The Premiere of 'Get Out'

Daniel Kaluuya is opening up about his absence at the Sundance premiere of Get Out back in 2017.

The 31-year-old actor was a guest on The Graham Norton Show this week and told the host that the reason behind him not being there was entirely 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 from coming, 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 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 and accolades, including an Oscar nomination.

The no invitation didn’t hurt his relationship with director Jordan Peele though it seems, as the duo are teaming back up for a new project.
