The Independent Talks To Rupert Grint!

April 15th, 2010, 7:46pm–The Independent has a new interview with Rupert Grint who is currently promoting Cherrybomb. Here he once again talks about life after Potter – he’s definitely ready for it to end! We also get some new tidbits including his family life in which he talks about how close they are, how they travel all around the world with him, and how his father still deals in F1 merchandise!

Rupert also discusses his various movie roles including Cherrybomb and how doing a kissing scene with Harry Potter co-star Jessie Cave was quite different from his scenes with Cherrybomb co-star Kimberley Nixon. He also talks a little about Wild Target and how he tends to be a lot more like Tony then he does Malachy. He also discusses more on Eddie the Eagle including how his father used to chat to him about Eddie and how famous he was for Britain in 1988! Seems like Rupert’s desire to play this role comes from his father’s stories!

We even get to hear, thankfully, that Rupert didn’t get too much teasing about his red hair while in school!

You can read it all here!

I love how he says that he’s actually GRATEFUL to have ginger hair. What an ace guy.

Another new “fun fact” we found out about him: he needs 2 days to recover from a hangover. Héhéh…

LOL That was hilarious, Laura!

I also love that he loves Eddie because of his dad… I bet when he was presented this chance he jumped on it for that sole reason. God I love him. :D

While this guy wont be the Independents reviewer. He gives the film a small compliment. “While it may not be an episode of Skins, it’s still a valid attempt to portray teen life realistically”.

Not the most positive note in the world, it seems to be running along on the current wave of 3/5 star reviews we’ve been getting. And while a 3/5 is positive I really want to see one reviewer break the mold with 4/5 or 5/5.

I love all of the new info we seem to be getting about him here recently, no matter how small some of it seems. I can’t help but adore him more and more all of the time!

It really does happen a lot!!! It’s like the universe just stops, points it finger at you and says, “Yes! You are so on right now!”

It’s so good to hear the he would rather play golf than to hang out at a club and drink himself stupid, unlike so many other actors. Proves how grounded he is. I guess if you have such a bad experience with being drunk, most would tend to steer clear of that. I mean, damn a two day hangover.

Tao and I were discussing back in the day how we would have to post news on Rupert being on the top ten list of hot gingers and stuff, literally scower the earth for news when it was not HP season…….oh but now now now now!!!!!!!!!! Look at us now! Know what I mean?

Hell yeah, Jo!!! And I love every minute of it. I’m tired as hell (long day) and I actually thought, “Dang, why does this have to come out when I’m tired?” Which two years ago it’d be, “Thank God something new came out!” And tomorrow will be another busy day and MONDAY!

Oh, the Olympics 88 was probably a very memorable time for Nigel (and Jo)… he was on his way to becoming a dad for the first time! :D

TONY! Has anyone seen the cat? Oh man, the cat! lol

they say hes not a teen sensation like robert pattison.im wondering,do people not go as mad because hes so laid back,and as hes not got a massive ego they think being a crazed fan girl wont impress?just a thought.I watched the clip for the HBP premier and there was definitely some pretty mad screaming going on there,half of me would want to tell them 2 chill,and the other half would want to scream louder than anyone else,lol!
