Happy 21st Birthday, Rupert Grint!

rup21bdaycopy

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!

Rupert, I’m so proud of you and happy to be your fan. We have learned so much about you in the past eight months, that every chance we get to see you in an interview, you just keep getting that much better in the way you present yourself and in what you say. Don’t ever be afraid to tell it like it is or speak the truth, we’re all behind you, always. You’ve shown us all a side of you that we all knew from the beginning, but you’ve proven to us that we’ve been right all along.

And don’t listen to the nay-sayers, you’ve got the passion, drive and talent to make it as an actor, after Harry Potter. Wether your in Europe or in the States, on the big screen or on a stage, I’ll always be there to cheer you on. Always go for it, Rupes, go for it hadcore and without apology. We all believe in you.

Happy 21st birthday Rupe!

Peace and Love
Michelle

Happy Birthday Rupert! I wish you’d come and stay in/around New York/New Jersey some more. You’re finally legal here, anyway! Have a great 21st birthday, and never let anyone let you down for even a second; you’re a handsome young man with an extraordinary career in front of him.
Keep calm and carry on! πŸ˜€
