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!ย  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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks Marite!

Hey, Rupert, happy birthday! I know you had to work today, but I hope everyone on the set was nice to you and maybe even got you cake. I hope the rest of DH filming goes well, and that you get the types of parts you want to play in the future, whether they are on film or on the stage. You can handle it!

I’m looking forward to seeing “Cherrybomb” and “Wild Target,” I know you’re going to be great in both of them.

Take care!

Yes, and I should say one thing)) Here, in Russia, we have smth like our own facebook – “vkontakte”. There is one group called “Ice Cream Man group – ะ ัƒะฟะตั€ั‚ ะ“ั€ะธะฝั‚~Happy 21st Birthday!~” Tonight, few girls from this group are celebrating your B-day like it is New Year. And I’m one of these girls. All of us are from other countries – we didn’t see each other! But one person unites us – and it is you! We are drinking virtual wine, beer and cocktails and writing tosts… And one girl said: “Damn, now he celebrate his B-day and thinks that he is lonely…And doesn’t know that here, there are these girls that we sincerely love him and celebrate his B-day, as new year… (”
You should knew this!!! LOVE YOU.

And I hope, you won’t “meet anybody this weekend”, you remember?)))

Hiya, Rupert! I hope you have a fantastic 21st birthday. I baked lemon cream cookies today for you, even though you can’t eat them since I live in California. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I’ll feed them to my family and friends in honor of you, okay? Have an awesome rest of the day.

Best wishes,
