With nearly £ 24million in the bank, Rupert Grint is one of the richest young men in Britain. But 22 years of Harry Potter star does not splash around like his galleons Premier League players of his age.
The actor, who captivated audiences as an assistant Weasley, Ron for over a decade, surprisingly admitted to the Sun that he still lives at home with Mom and Dad – even if he has his own way to London for stay casual.
There are even luxury cars for the boy Hertfordshire home.
When filming wrapped on the latest film of JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, he allowed a Vauxhall Carlton 60 pounds and has made its way across Europe with friends in a “Wacky Rally “.
He said: “We have nine countries, all the way to Barcelona, ??I went with James and Oliver Phelps, who play the twins, and we brought along a mechanic and it was really a great adventure, j ‘loves cars, but … nothing to flash. ”
In an exclusive interview with The Sun ahead of the film’s release by Friday, Potter, Rupert has given us a window into his modest life, it is still close to the sisters Georgina, 18, Samantha, Charlotte and 15 12, brother of Jacques, 21, and parents, Nigel and Joanne.
Although he rarely excessive in itself, he says he can splash the money to his family – this sometimes bizarre.
He said: “I have a mini-zoo, we have mini pigs, donkeys, miniature hedgehogs are slightly smaller than the average hedgehog …
“I had a big family, I am one of five sisters and I love animals.”
He met the Queen and the family of President Obama, I ask which celebrity Rupert, he is most happy to meet.
The floors of response from me.
“Stevens Alan Titchmarsh. Shakin ‘came on the set too. I just really random star beaten by the likes of Alan Titchmarsh and EastEnders actor,” he said.
“I met Alan on the 80th anniversary of the Queen when she had this big party at the palace.
“I fell on him. It’s not like I really watch Ground Force or something.”
Never forget that the Queen and Prince Philip was right behind him or that Michelle Obama had visited the set with his daughters as a birthday surprise for one of them.
But when the heads of state meeting in order not to arouse Rupert, so there must have been magic in the air when he finally kisses co-star Emma Watson in the new film?
Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger Emma character finally describe their feelings for each other in the gripping finale of the series by locking lips.
But Rupert said: “None of us were looking forward to was a difficult scene that was expected when the relationship is built from the first film …
“There was pressure to get there. I knew Emma when she was nine years and have an eye on each other grow.
“So kiss this girl just seemed a strange thing to do, not good.”
Mundane Rupert seems immune to the weaknesses of many young stars.
Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry, was recently forced to abandon because of his drinking had gotten out of hand.
Rupert insists he does not need the pressure felt by alcohol.
He said: “No, no, no, this expectation is always there for us to fall into this stereotype and it’s never really a problem for me.
“Because we film in Watford, which is not the most glamorous spots. If we had shot in America or something, it would have been disastrous. I never felt any pressure. It was really fun. “Constant and intense attention from the fans makes this more remarkable land.
Rupert was not offended by unknown interrupt.
He smiled and said. “People call me Ron in the street I grew up with, it became almost my second name.
“I answer. Or they call me Weasley and ginger. ”
Although it does not benefit people who secretly photographs, while in a restaurant.
He said: “There are times when you do not really want to do, if you have a meal and people who use their mobile phones with camera and take pictures of you.
“You can spot them. They love the pictures of their friends and they take a small compensation for the camera so they can get you. ”
But he is grateful for some aspects of fame – all fan mail and gifts. For some reason, he was sent a lot of pajamas.
Meetings with obsessed fans Odd also raise a smile.
He laughed and said: “There was a time when I was in LA, I think I met this man, a tattoo of me, Dan and Emma had on his arm.
“It was not quite the resemblance. I looked like Anne Robinson.”
But how does he feel now that experience is over?
Rupert said: “It’s weird to think that it is a scene at the end, after the battle, the three of us on deck ..
“I found this scene emotionally, I’m still not used to.”
But certainly the post-Potter future is bright for Rupert, offering the possibility of using different types of films?
Between the magic of cinema, he appeared in low budget projects, including Wild Target, Cherry Bomb, driving lessons and Thunderpants.
A PAL is coming, where he was a British airman shot down over Norway in the atrocities.
And Rupert is aligned with Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards to play in a biopic of sensation Winter Olympics.
He said: “I want to continue to act, without a doubt.”
We can only hope that his career is better than the dreams of the British ski jumper Eddie – who was dead last in two events at the Winter Olympics of 1988.
