"It is true, I’m married to James Bond. It’s the tiniest little moment. I don’t really know why they wanted to do it but anyway, I thought 'Knives Out 1' was brilliant, and so yeah, I thought why not? I turn up for a few hours," Grant said.

There were a lot of theories floating around Blanc's sexuality and viewers wanted to know if they have been right about it. Despite that particular scene with Grant making things official, filmmaker Rian Johnson also confirmed during a Press Conference in London that Blanc is "GAY" and Grant's character is, in fact, the detective's lover. But viewers never knew that they exchanged their vows and are married to each other.

However, Johnson has also made it clear that people might not get a detailed look at Blanc's personal life because he just wants his whodunnits to be more focused on the mysteries that enthrall the viewers rather than getting lost in showing the glimpses of the detective's personal life.
