Rupert Grint Talks Butterbeer and Beastie Boys with ICM!


Rupert Grint Talks Butterbeer and Beastie Boys with ICM!
June 24th, 2010, 11:07 pm–What happens when you mix two ICM staffers, and Rupert Grint? Complete and utter randomness! On the final evening of a spectacular week of events surrounding the grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, Jo and AJ from rupert-grint.us received a phone call to hook up with Rupert in a lovely patio setting behind the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade.

Here, Rupert took time out of his evening to sit and chat with ICM!

When we approached the meeting area, Rupert was standing and immediately approached us and greeted us with his winning smile. Rupert had on a black cardigan with a shirt reading the words “Do you feel lucky?” (HELL YEAH!) We all shook hands and “formally” introduced ourselves (as we’ve had several encounters with Rupert at various events.) So here’s a snippet of what we discussed.

Jo: Hey how are you, thanks for chatting with us tonight.

Rupert: Oh yeah no problem.

AJ: So how are you liking Florida?

Rupert: (In an animated voice.) It’s SO HOT!

AJ: Yeah I know.

Rupert: You’re from here?

AJ: No I am from Maryland, but its on the same coast. It’s around
Washington D.C.

Rupert: Oh yeah!

At this point we head over to the patio chairs to chat more with Rupert. The chairs were all wet so he laughed at us as we figured that out. Once seated we chatted more about music, the Harry Potter films and future projects.

And chat in the forum with us here.

Thanks, Rupert is always so sweet and down to earth. Totally easy to chat with and really we didn’t want to bombard him with tons of interview questions so that’s why a lot of the conversation was chatting which we couldn’t fit it all in lol.

Thanks, guys!

*sings Janet*

It’s all for you….

I have to say, after our chat, the first word that came to my mind when thinking about Rupert was: Pleasant. He’s simply pleasant.

I’ve never really used that word to describe someone, and perhaps it’s because he’s British, but he’s so pleasant to be around.

Really cool and down to earth. I totally felt that I could be myself.

I didn’t feel that I was around “Rupert Grint” actor, I felt that I was talking to a really cool guy named Rupert.

I will always take that away from the experience.

He seems so sweet. It still amazes me that someone as famous as he is can be so down to earth and took time out to talk to his fans.

I can’t wait to see what else he has planned movie wise.

Hehehehe….

Pretty?! LOL, that’s an adjective i didn’t expect. Gorgeous, of course! Fine, sure! Smoking, hot…hello, it’s Rupert! But pretty? ….i guess all positive adjectives can describe that man!

Hold up, let me explain.

He’s not pretty boy, pretty.

He’s not girly pretty.

He’s the pretty that only you would be able to understand if you had witnessed it yourself.

Pics have NEVER done his justice.

He’s pretty as only AJ can define…

So, when I say he’s pretty, don’t question it, just know that it’s pretty as defined by Aj, which is not the normal definition (though subjective) of prettiness….

He’s pretty like van gogh’s starry night

I got all squee and excited when it came to new films BEFORE Eddie.
