Rupert Grint Rolling Stone's Hot Sidekick of 2009

Posted by: Edward

A new feature on Rolling Stone Magazine includes actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) as part of their list of 2009 Hot List.  Dubbing Mr. Grint their 'Hot Sidekick,' the magazine profiles the young actor who notes that the Harry Potter experience has "been exactly half of my life." He goes on to say of the experience: "It has been really weird. I feel like I've completely changed really quickly. I was going to a regular school, and then suddenly I did this audition on a whim and then — well, it just sort of happened."  Rolling Stone goes on to talk of Mr. Grint's upcoming projects, as well as of the fan base Mr. Grint has cultivated during the past ten years.  The full article can be found right here.

I usually don’t like to think of the word sidekick when thinking of Rupert or Ron. HOWEVER, it’s Rolling freakin’ Stone magazine, they can do what they want.

And yes, Rupert is Hot!!!

He’s finally grown up, hasn’t he? Although I can still see that cute little 11 year old in there somewhere, lol.

At least Rupert’s FINALLY getting some recognition!! I mean, I like all three of them a lot, but poor Rupert’s always pushed to the side. So I’m happy that Rupert’s finally getting some recognition.

He’s got flaming red hair so he must be hot.

I’ve always been one of those who falls for the “sidekick,” myself. We all love and support the hero, but the hero could never be the hero without his or her loyal and stalwart sidekick’s help. And the sidekick always has a personality quirk that makes him or her irresistible, in my opinion.
Do you need any further proof?: Who did Hermione, the best and brightest witch of her generation, choose?!
‘Nuff said. Case closed.
Cheers, y’all!

Yay for Rupert! As much as I don’t like him being known as the ‘sidekick’, I’m glad he’s being noticed. And to make it even better it’s in Rolling Stone, a magazine which I happen to love.
