Rupert Grint hates old ‘Harry Potter’ movies
London, June 1 (IANS) Hollywood actor Rupert Grint said he gets embarrassed while watching old “Harry Potter” movies because he can’t stand seeing himself go through puberty on screen.
The actor rose to fame as Ron Weasley in the wizarding franchise.
“It is weird I suppose. I’ve not known any different… it’s the way I’ve grown up. You get used to it. It’s weird – like having a big home movie. If the old films are on TV I’ll glimpse slightly, but I’ve never watched one all the way through,” he said.
The 21-year-old star admits he is concerned about being typecast by the series which is why he decided to take on a completely different role in his new comedy “Wild Target”.
He said: “I guess it was one of the reasons I did ‘Wild Target’ because it was kind of a way out… ‘Harry Potter’ is coming to an end, it’s the last one, then it’s all done. It’s a weird feeling because we’ve been so long in this bubble and now we have to walk away from it all. It’s important to do different things and stretch out.”
