March 3rd, 2012, 11:39pm–In a fun interview with The Daily Mail Rupert Grint and his brother James Grint talk candidly about their career choices and each other. Rupert also talks about his ice cream van and how he keeps it stocked and goes to neighborhoods giving out free ice cream.
‘I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short. I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that.
‘I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.”
The brothers had this to say about each other:
James: “If anything, Rupert’s success spurred me on to excel in my own field.”
Rupert: ‘As much as anything, I like the fact that I can attend my brother’s rally meetings. Now that we’re all grown up and no longer racing against each other, few things give me greater pleasure than seeing him win.’
Rupert also mentions that now that Harry Potter has ended he can sit back and choose his roles more wisely.
And don’t forget the world premiere of Into The White is tomorrow!
