Happy 21st Birthday, Rupert Grint!


August 24, 2009, 7:24pm–As any die hard Rupert Grint fan knows, Rupert was born on this day, August 24th. Since it is after midnight in the UK he has now turned the ripe age of 21! Why is this so special? Because now in the states, Rupert can legally drink and gamble! If you remember when Rupert was promoting Driving Lessons we learned that his father, Nigel, had to keep grabbing drinks out of his hands because of the age limit here!Β  So now, when Rupert promotes Wild Target and Cherrybomb (hopefully that will be soon!), he won’t have to worry about anyone grabbing a drink out of his hand. And then he can head on over to Las Vegas and have some fun on the slots.

On a serious note, it has been fun watching Rupert grow up. I didn’t get to be a fan right when the Harry Potter movies came out. He was 15 by that time. But it has been fun watching him go from this young teenager to this gorgeous, on the inside and out, young man. And I think we all plan to watch him go from a young adult to a seasoned actor middle age and beyond adult. πŸ˜‰

You can leave your birthday greetings to Rupert in the comments and we will send them to him! Our special treat includes four amazing drawings by Lilly (which you can see here, here, here and here); and the gorgeous graphic used in this post is by our very own Val!

UPDATE: Rupert says thanks for the birthday wishes. He has lots of work tomorrow, and they’re heading back from V Festival. Best wishes from Rupert! Rupert also mentions stopping by sometime soon so everybody on your best behaviour. πŸ˜‰

UPDATE 2:Rupert made more comments from the V-festival. Among them are his feelings about Oasis having to pull out of the festival. The Sun.

“I’m gutted. I was looking forward to Oasis. It was going to be the highlight of my weekend.”

Well Rupes we hope you still had a good time and hope you get to see Oasis sometime soon.

UPDATE 3: More reports have surfaced from the V Festival, and according to BBC Rupert said that Amy Winehouse’s performance was a highlight:

“They were doing their usual set and she came on in Ghost Town and everyone went crazy. She was on good form.”

The article is a accompanied by a hilarious photo of Rupert with his horse head mask, which can be seen in our gallery here! And, according to this source, the attempt to hide behind the mask was unsuccessful because the fans recognised his T-shirt and his legendary US flag chucks! πŸ˜€

Thanks Marite!

Happy birthday Rupert!

It’s windy and overcast outside as I type, but I hope the sun is shining in the UK for you today on your birthday and it’s nice and warm. Have a great day and eat lots of yummy cake and other goodies.

Rupert, thank you for staying down-to-earth and normal, and thank you also for your great talent, which has touched so many people. You rocked the screen in the Half-Blood Prince and I look forward to seeing you in Cherrybomb, Wild Target, Deathly Hallows and in whatever projects you decide to do post-Potter.

Happy 21st, Rupert, and may you celebrate many more birthdays, cheers!

What can I say?

“Happy Birthday” … isn’t enough…

What can I tell my idol in this special day?

I hope you have fun (at work maybe the set of HP is very funny) and then you enjoy good music at the V Festival … please don’t use more the horse mask… it’s very kitsch.

You are truly great, humble, cool, carefree … you’re a normal guy who does what he likes doing. It’s admirable your history life.
You always remember the laughter and memorable moments of your “20”; the sad things let it go, (learn from them) and prepare for the successes of your “21”, Cherrybomb and Wild Target will give that talk.

A big hug and best wishes from Mexico city, you have our full support, we will never leave you alone… soon you’ll see that everything will be fine

Hassan (yeah.. the mexican boy..)
