Rupert Grint Admits Fame is ‘Dehumanizing’

Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) admits he’d reached a point in his Harry Potter career in which he’d considered leaving the franchise.

Yes, it’s true. In the most recent interview of Rupert (Ron Weasley), he has opened up on a moment in which he considered leaving the Harry Potter franchise. No doubt the series helped Rupert gain a lot of experience and reputation when it comes to acting. But the huge fame that came with the job seemingly left Rupert reconsidering his future with it. In that interview, he revealed that after Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – the fourth of the eight films – he thought about throwing in his wand.

“I had just finished my GCSEs,” he told The Independent. “I thought ‘Do I actually want to keep doing this? It’s a bit of a drag.’

“Because obviously it’s a big sacrifice. You take for granted anonymity, just doing normal stuff, just going out.”

He added: “Everything was different and a little bit scary. There were times when I was like ‘I’m done.’”

Rupert Grint Participates in Surprise Staring Contest

Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) stopped by the BuzzFeed office to challenge unsuspecting Harry Potter fans to a new invented game: The Surprise Staring Contest.

So, as the headline already tells you, Rupert participated in BuzzFeed‘s new favorite game, The Surprise Staring Contest. The rules to play by are pretty simple, it’s just like the good old game you knew growing up: first person to blink, loses.

Except in this version of the game, BuzzFeed employees are led into a room blindfolded, unaware of the celebrity they’re about to have a staring contest with. Needless to say, these Harry Potter fans were barely able to keep it together when they were suddenly staring into the eyes of Ron Weasley himself.

As hard as they tried, Rupert must’ve drunk some Felix Felicis potion because he didn’t lose ONCE. By the way, while talking to Rupert, he revealed that he’d only JUST watched the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. He went on to explain behind-the-scenes that, while he hates watching himself on film, he felt “far enough removed” from himself as an 11-year-old, thus he could now enjoy watching it.
