Rupert Grint: New Interview about CBGB, Tattoos and Twitter!

RupertNewsIconOctober 8th, 2013, 1:36pm– Rupert Grint has done a new interview with Vulture.com where he talks about an array of things. The interview was done over the phone since Rupert is very busy with Mojo rehearsals at the moment.

One of the things a lot of fans are putting on their wish list is to finally see Rupert on twitter. Vulture asks about this and we once again get confirmation that he is indeed NOT on twitter… yet:

Every Twitter feed claiming to be you doesn’t seem like it’s really you. Are they impostors? Are you even on Twitter?
No, I’m not. If you saw one, that would be a fake one, yeah. I don’t know. It’s weird that people pretend to do that, pretend that they’re me. But I’ve never done Twitter. A lot of people have already said that I should give it a go, but I don’t think I’d be very good at it! It’s just not something … I’m not great at any of those things, really. Maybe one day, though.

The rest of the interview is mostly about CBGB and we get a hilarious comment on the (very special) scene where Rupert had to take his pants off:

You wear a dog collar throughout the film. Did you get to keep it?
No. I really wanted to, though. [Laughs.] I kind of got quite attached to the dog collar. Wearing it every day, I felt naked without it.

Not as naked as the scene in which you drop trou!
Oh, right, yeah. Yes. That was quite fun. I didn’t really think about it until I had to do it, but it was kind of quite a tricky process. I think in the end, we needed a sock contraption. [Laughs.] So that kind of worked. That was the first time I had ever done anything like that. Justin Bartha had to do a lot more, actually. He had to get his waxed. So there was a lot of preparation there. Luckily, I don’t have that issue.

Rupert Grint: New Photoshoot Image by Tim Booth!

RupertNewsIconMay 9th, 2013, 2:56pm– We have an amazing treat for all Rupert Grint fans tonight. Thanks to Anonymous (we would love to know your name, so we can give proper credit…), we have this amazing picture to share with you guys:

Rupert-Grint

This amazing picture was taken by photographer Tim Booth and you can see a larger version of the image in our gallery here. We don’t know what the purpose of this photoshoot is, but we will investigate and update with further information and more pictures if they are unvcovered. How do you like the look of this new photoshoot? Let us know in the comments!

The official CBGB facebook page as also released yet another image of Rupert as Cheetah Chrome rocking out on stage. We’ve also added that image to our gallery here.

UPDATE: We now have more details about the Tim Booth picture, and it is extremely interesting. On May 1st, Tim updated his blog with the following quote:

Spent the day shooting stills on the set of Instruments of Darkness, which was a chapter for the film Enemy of Man directed by Vincent Regan. This one is of Jason Flemyng letting rip in a fight sequence, all swords, clashing armour and fire, very dramatic. I also got some nice shots of Charles Dance and Rupert Grint. Good day, nice people and rather fun.

UPDATE #2: We asked Tim about photographing Rupert, and he was nice enough to share some very sweet words with us:

He was a nice guy, we didn’t exactly chat much as he was working very hard.
He’s a calm and quiet guy, very professional, totally unaffected by his fame
and dedicated to his craft.

In other news, we are getting closer and closer to know whether or not Super Clyde is picked up by CBS. All we can do is cross our fingers, but luckily lots of buzz has surrounded the show in the media. You can vote for Super Clyde as the pilot you most want to be made into a series here as well as read the positives vs. the negatives of the pilot.

Furthermore, you can enjoy four screenshots of Rupert at last week’s British Animal Honours where he presented the very first honour of the night – check them out in the gallery here. A video of his appearance is not yet available, but we will update if we get our hands on it.
