Rupert Grint: I’m a shy person

rupert_grint_663592 Speaking to FHM magazine, Rupert Grint said he doesn’t like all the attention he gets wherever he goes. The 25-year-old actor became famous when he was cast as Harry Potter’s best friend Ronald Weasley in the eight-film series but he finds it hard to cope with the fame it has brought him.

He explained: ”I’m quite a shy person and wherever you go there’s someone taking a picture of you. I do hide away from it and wear hoods and masks. I wore a mask at V Festival two years ago and it was invigorating – I felt free. But it was a latex duck mask and it was really hot, so I couldn’t keep it on for long.”

Once one person comes over, it attracts a crowd. Sometimes it’s a bit overpowering. You can’t just be yourself, you’re always on show. It puts me on edge,” Rupert said.
