It can be tough to look at pictures of yourself during those awkward teenage years.
And video. And multimillion dollar feature films.
LOLz, that’s the situation for Rupert Grint, who says he has a hard time looking back at the Harry Potter movies — at least the latter half.
In a new interview with the Radio Times, the actor — promoting his new Agatha Christie adaptation on the BBC — reflected on the franchise he can’t even look at:
“I think those early ones are OK. More time has passed. I can detach myself a bit more from that kid. I did see Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone not long ago, for the first time since the premiere, and I actually enjoyed looking back. But the more recent ones I definitely couldn’t do. I could probably go up to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”
Other wild statements from the interview?
The Harry Potter producers wouldn’t let him get his tonsils out during the movies!
“I had massive tonsils, I could feel them. And it affected my voice. I got tonsillitis all the time.”
He says the first thing he did when the films finally wrapped was getting a tonsillectomy — something producers asked him not to do because it “was too much recovery time and there was the fear that it would change my voice.”
Damn. Y’all know you just recast Dumbledore, right? Stuff happens. Fans would have dealt with it.
But at least he got paid for the inconvenience.
Rupert says he made so much playing Ron Weasley, he has no idea how rich he is!
“I actually don’t know how much I have. I couldn’t even really guess.”
Um, what?? He explains:
“It doesn’t really motivate me too much. It makes you comfortable, that’s the good thing about it, I think. I’m glad it’s there but I’m not really that focused on it.”
Something only someone with a TON of money says! LOLz!
For the record, he’s estimated to have north of $35 million. But you know what he can’t buy with that? The experience of watching the Harry Potter films. Ha!
