We’ve all had our share of good and bad vacations and Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is no exception.
The 21-year-old actor sat down with The Telegraph and revealed some of his best and worst holiday experiences. Check it:
Forgetting His Luggage: “I was recently visiting Paris and went to unload the car, only to picture my haphazardly packed bag still sitting on my bed at home. Iâ€™d entirely forgotten to put it in the car. I had to go buy an entire holiday wardrobe, and it wasnâ€™t cheap.”
Murphy’s Law even applies in Lake Como: “The family had decided to drive in convoy to Italy from England on the way to our ill-fated Lake Como trip. I think the entire trip was cursed from the start. I was in traffic in my Range Rover behind Dadâ€™s and crashed straight into the back of his. Once that was sorted, we continued on our way through the steep roads through the Swiss Alps, as weâ€™d wanted to enjoy the scenery en route. Unfortunately, just when weâ€™d reached the top of one of the remotest passes, Dadâ€™s car broke down. We probably needed a holiday after that holiday.”
The best of the best is in NYC: “Each year when the cast of Harry Potter stay in New York City for press interviews and the premieres, we stay at Essex House, an Art Deco hotel right on Central Park. My room had a great view of it. The first time we stayed there was not long after 9/11, so that was really eerie. The staff get to know us well because of our repeat visits and itâ€™s a good location for sightseeing or shopping â€“ not that our schedules allow for much downtime. For us, the best bit about our room is obviously the minibar.”
JJJ has just learned that Rupert‘s Cherrybomb has gotten a distributor, thanks to RupertGrint.net. Universal Pictures UK will be distributing the flick in Europe.
