MOVIE star Rupert Grint has revealed he’s developed a passion for beekeeping.
The 30-year-old actor – who is best-known for his starring role in the Harry Potter franchise – joked during his appearance at Glastonbury Festival that he even considered turning up to the event dressed in his beekeeping outfit.
He shared, “I considered coming to Glastonbury in disguise, like I used to.
“I was going to bring my beekeeping outfit because I’m into beekeeping lately. It’s good for the environment.”
Rupert also quipped that he was considering releasing his own brand of honey.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, Rupert explained, “I might be bringing my own honey out soon. I’ll be making honey and money.”
Meanwhile, Rupert revealed in 2018 that he “struggles” to remember what his life was like before Harry Potter.
The actor admitted playing Ron Weasley in the money-spinning franchise from 2001 to 2011 and dealing with immense fame, caused him to “lose himself”.
He said, “I struggle to remember life before it.
“I think I lost myself a bit along the way.
“With the fame, you’re almost being the character even when you’re not in character.
“From the moment I got the part, my life completely changed.
“It was a weird time and it has taken me a long while to process. Just being invisible can still be difficult. Sometimes you just want to go to B&Q.”
The flame-haired star – who was catapulted into the limelight along with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) – also recalled when they were chased by children through a market in Tokyo.
He said, “It was terrifying, absolutely mad. I’d never seen anything like it.
“We were at a market, and we timed it very badly, school had just finished and there was literally a stampede toward us. It was the first time I’ve ever ran away.” – BANG!
