During a press event held today in London, England before the UK premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, actor Rupert Grint made some new comments about his recent bout with Swine Flu. As we reported the other day, Rupert had a mild bout of the deadly flu, but is well on the way to recovery and will attend the official premiere of the sixth Harry Potter film tomorrow in London, England. Speaking to reporters today, Rupert stated:

“It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu,” he said
at a press conference with other Potter actors including Emma Watson in
London.”I thought ‘Am I going to die?’ But it was just like any other flu really.””I had a sore throat and I went to bed for a few days.”

Avatar ImagePineappleCrush says: Ugh, don't get me started on how OVER EXAGGERATED the Swine Flu is... it hasn't been proven to be any more deadly than the regular flu! The media hypes everything up. Get over it. Regardless, I'm glad he's feeling better. Swine Flu or the regular Flu is still pretty rough and is a pretty big inconvenience.

As oppose to the - oh right - "deadly normal seasonal flu"! Talk about overreaction.. Those who should be worried are those with existing health conditions and pregnant women. Fit, healthy and responsible people that eat properly will most likely just suffer the same symptroms as the regular flu. Good on Rupert for recovering, but it isn't a big deal, like he said, it was just like the regular flu. Avatar Imageacidbrat says: I blame Dudley Dursley and his darned pig's tail!!!Avatar Imagekpixydiva says: Are we sure this isn't some kind of Spattergroit fake out?Avatar Imageele0206 says: thanks godness it wasn't anything bad. Loooove rupert <333Avatar ImageFigment says: I am glad that he is recovering. I would have been worried too.Avatar Imagemolly43 says: I'm so glad he's over it and is no longer worried about it. Thank Allah he's ok and I hope the other don't get it since they've been in such close contact with him.Avatar ImageKiralay says: Thank goodness it's passed.Avatar ImageKC Nox says: oh swine flu! Avatar Imagebiswajit says: Hope he will always be ok...
