Rupert Grint planned to become an artist

Rupert Grint wanted to be an artist. The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows star is a big fan of “disturbing” painters and admits he would have pursued a creative career path if his acting career hadn’t taken off.

“If it wasn’t for Harry Potter I’d probably be doing art, because I’ve always been into it. I’m regularly drawing, painting, sketching or doodling. It’s pretty much a hobby of mine,” he said.

“I quite like surreal artists, like Salvador Dali or Otto Dix. Otto’s paintings are quite disturbing, which is probably why I like them!”

As well as enjoying art, Rupert — who plays Ron Weasley in the film series — also likes to play golf in his free time, and enjoys playing against his Harry Potter co-stars.

“I first got into golf because my dad and a couple of friends played it. A lot of the people on the ‘Harry Potter’ set play golf too, like the twins — James and Oliver Phelps — so I’ve played with them a few times. It’s a really good way of chilling out,” he said.

Grint recently revealed he’s single and ready to mingle.

“It’s quite hard to have a relationship because you’re busy all the time when we’re filming. The Deathly Hallows took a year and a half to finish. It kind of takes over your life, really. So, yeah, I am single,” he said.

“I suppose trusting someone to see you for yourself is kind of a little bit difficult now. You have to learn to kind of see through people a little bit more. It’s just something that I’ll have to get used to, I guess.

“It’s definitely changed my life, just being known now. People knowing my name and never really being quite invisible is something that’s quite strange. But the last 10 years have been the best half of my life so far.”
