Rupert Grint: Celebrity Birthday Spotlight!

Rupert Grint: Celebrity Birthday Spotlight!
August 24, 2009, 9:52 PM–While we celebrate Rupert Grint’s 21st birthday we thought we would share with you some great reports coming out about this special occasion. In a new report from MTV, Rupert is deemed as one of Hollywood’s hottest young stars! Read below.

Even if the “Harry Potter” films hinge on Daniel Radcliffe’s performance, the success of the franchise is strongly reliant on the work of Rupert Grint’s portrayal of Ron Weasley, Harry’s best friend and fellow wizard-in-training. Like Daniel and their co-star Emma Watson, Rupert has practically grown up on screen, starting off as a boy in “The Sorcerer’s Stone” before becoming a full-fledged leading man in “The Half Blood Prince.”HollywoodCrushMtv

And in an exclusive video, People mentions Rupert’s 21st including all of the wonderful things we already know about him, but still great to see him get acknowledged. Click to view at

Entertainment Tonight also mentions Rupert on their Celebrity Birthday’s spotlight this evening. He was featured on their trivia asking which Harry Potter star is arachnophobic!

We can not recall his previous birthdays being featured on ET in the past so this is truly “year of grint.” 🙂 If you caught the video please send it over! If you find any news piece spotlighting Rupert’s birthday let us know! We love this stuff. 😉

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint not happy about having to snog a fake Emma Watson in new movie

^^^^^^ tabloid rubbish

Actually, I read that myself. Hoping it’s not true and he and the REAL Emma kiss.

August 25th, 2009 at 8:27 AM

Of course he kissed the real Emma — they both said so.
Tabloids are just making this up.

You’ve “forgotten” the best part of the mtv blog quote. Okay, they didn’t mention CB or WT, but “he’s sure to have continued success” sounds great, IMO. 😀

When “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” hits theaters, the “Harry Potter” film series will officially end. Grint has already proven himself in roles outside of the magic-based universe with “Driving Lessons” and “Thunderpants,” and he’s sure to have continued success once his days at Hogwarts are over.

And Rupert having to snog a fake Emma is the most stupid rumour of all the very stupid rumours I’ve heard in my life. Do they really expect anyone to believe that rubbish? *shakes head wondering*
