isn’t it obvious that that rupertfan is not a fan of rupert?

she’s just trying to make people believe that she’ a fan of rupert and making dan’s and emma’s fans hating rupert. that’s what she’s been constantly doing.

we are smart enough to not get trapped.

Man, I will be just around the corner at the Berlin based Hogwarts at the FEZ, but being a Professor I won’t be able to come, such a shame, Rupert, you should come to us instead and celebrate the End of the Year Ball with the rest of us!!

“Rupert’s gonna own the BFF and show everyone that Emma and Dan are talentless hags.”

I don’t like going against another Rupert fan, but I think that was a bit harsh. I don’t like it when Dan fans (Emma fans don’t do it as much), say mean things regarding Rupert. I encourage them to just stick to what they like. I would encourage the same from Rupert fans. Celebrate Rupert!!!!
I attended the DL q&a and he did a great job there. Very engaging with his fans. I’ve made plans to attend the Belfast premiere, so I hope I get tickets for that showing. I’m sure he’s going to do a fabulous job there as well. He’s played Ron for so long, what more can he say. It’s darker…Ron’s older… But, with Malachy, he’s got something new to talk about. He’s got a storyline to discuss.

Thank you Tina for that information….regarding rupertfan.

It’s unfortunate that the fandom is so diversive. However, it is….

And even if you don’t care for Dan, Rupert, or Emma no point wishing poorly on any of them. Time will tell for all of them and you should spend your energies well wishing.

@ ALice – actually I haven’t posted on Leaky for ages, so no, I’m not an obsessive. I’ve just never seen rupert articulate or eleaborate on Q&A well. Even in more informal circumstance (eg the unscripted moviefone chat the trio had) he didn’t have much to add.

By all means put up some interviews in which he goes into depth and doesn’t revert back to the “yeah cools”.

Well you know, Rupert might continue to say his “yeahs,” his “umms,” his “cools,” and my personal favorite “I don’t know really.”

He may always scratch his chin, chew his gum, pic at his arm, or rough up his hair.

He may never reveal information about “his first time,” or his celebrity crush.

He may never discuss politics in depth or drop a bunch of names.

But, speaking soley for me, every once in a while, he’ll say something. It could be just a sentence and that one sentence will speak volumes to me about him.

My personal favorite, the Moviefone interview with Jeremy Brock, when he was asked what did he like about acting. Awwww, bless. And that one answer seems very revealing in regards to why he might be the way he is in interviews.

Anyway, it never mattered to me that he’s not all that revealing. In fact, I find it rather intriguing.

Also, just reading what people who has worked with him said about him, him being quiet and soft spoken seems to be a common thread. Therefore, being a man of few words is just WHO he is.

But, right now, I just want to see him act!!! That’s what really matters, Bring on Cherrybomb and Wild Target!!!

I’d rather him be a really good actor, with rudimentary interview skills, than a wonderful story teller who can’t act. (And NO, I’m not talking about anyone in particular.)

Dan is a fame wh*re. He’ll continue to say things about his life in complete detail until he stops giving those horrible interviews. Nobody needs to know he lost his virginity at 16. Rupert on the other hand will prosper in the acting business. He doesn’t need to even give one interview to prove he can act, people just have to watch a HP movie. Look at Great Garbo, she barely gave any interviews, or Katherine Hepburn. And those women had more talent in one strand of hair than Dan has in his whole Broadway-flashing body. Face it Dan will we remembered as the guy from Harry Potter who stripped on stage. Rupert will continue to make great movies.

If you go to you’ll see an interview he did about this movie that is full of substance. This proves what most of us have known all along: As long as the questions aren’t stupid and unorginal, Rupert is postively engaging!

Posted by EruditeWitch on January 28, 2009, 12:37 PM report to moderator

“rupertfan” (if you can really be called that), just stop that. No one wants to hear your derogatory comments. Dan is a decent, wonderful, lovely young man with a great talent who’ll go his way in the movie industry, if you like it or not.

I am a Rupert fan, but I won’t take any bashing of Dan (or Emma for that matter) who I both like very, very much as well. Even if you don’t like Dan (or Emma for that matter) Rupert likes both and would never, never, ever say something like you did about any of them. Why don’t you learn a lesson from him, if you’re a fan of his as you pretend.

miriam, if you are really interested, there is this reelz-channels interview with this young guy who’s name escapes me right now. It was during OotP promotion and it’s on the reelz-channels website (just search for ‘Rupert Grint’). It’s a very good interview. I don’t recall Rupert saying ‘cool’ even once and I don’t recall any ‘yeahs’ , although there might be one or two. It was a nine minutes interview after all. Give it a try.

I really don’t think a REAL Rupert fan would act like that. I know I certainly don’t. I hate it when fans who don’t particually care for Rupert act like that, so what kind of sense would it make for someone who says they like Rupert to do that,

I think I believe what Tina said. Even if a Rupert fan did think thoses things about the other actors, I think they would express courtesy and not litter comments with such speak.

Please stop that, you are ruining Rupert love!!!

I think it may be the time of the month for rupert fan – her brain seems to have imploded.

girls – thanks for referring me to the rupert website and the reelz interview – can’t say I was much impressed. Unfortunately, I found the site a little overzealous and the interview still a little dull – but the interviews were an improvement!

Y is that ppl think all rupert fans can’t be as rude as “rupertfan”.

Posted by jimmy_g on January 29, 2009, 10:22 AM report to moderator


That you used the word ALL just says it.

Not ALL Rupert fans can be that rude, I am a fan of Rupert’s, YET I would also weager that I’ve never been that rude.

I can disagree and I can certainly “go there” when put to task. But, I’m not rude about Dan or Emma. I like them, I just adore Rupert.

Therefore, this is why I think that all Rupert fans CAN’T be as rude as that. Cause I’M NOT…. smiles.

A grim smile twisted his lopsided mouth. "Oh if there's one thing I hate," he muttered, more to himself than to Harry, and his magical eye was fixed on the left-hand corner of the map, "it's a Death Eater who walked free..."
