Rupert Grint Chats Ups & Downs of Holidays

Rupert Grint Chats Ups & Downs of Holidays

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. I’d entirely forgotten to put it in the car. I had to go buy an entire holiday wardrobe, and it wasn’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 Dad’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 we’d wanted to enjoy the scenery en route. Unfortunately, just when we’d reached the top of one of the remotest passes, Dad’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 it’s a good location for sightseeing or shopping — 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 Universal Pictures UK will be distributing the flick in Europe.

    Lmao! I love Rupert!! And I also love that he just told us exactly where they stay when they’re in NYC…that’s great info! Maybe I can get an autograph when they start promoting Deathly Hallows! His worst holiday wasn’t that bad…I mean he was still in Italy and he should be used to rain since he lives in England. lol. But this was an awesome interview, he’s been so many cool places!

    And I’m so happy Cherrybomb got a distributor!! I hope it gets released in the US too!! :D
