What is your secret claim to fame?

I am famous for losing things—especially my mobile phone, which I seem particularly good at losing on the golf course at the moment.

What is your favorite song?

I don’t really have one favorite because I enjoy a lot of stuff. I like Artic Monkeys, Parklife and Blur.

What’s your favorite food?
Probably Hawaiian pizza, because it really fills you up and it's easy to cook or heat up. Or, if I’m feeling really lazy, I can just order one in.

Driving Lessons "is a much more grownup film," said Grint. "We just sort of film around London. Harry Potter's got all these amazing sets and big studios, it was quite hard to get used to this much smaller sort of environment: no special effects, no blue screen sort of dragons."

Of his first adult sex scene, Grint said, "I was really dreading it. I was really nervous, because you're in this tiny little room, the whole crew watching. It's quite scary. There were so many takes, once you got into it, it was alright. The worst part is watching it back with your family. That's the thing that really gets embarrassing."

27 November 2006: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire wins the BAFTA Kid's Vote award at the BAFTA Children's award. Rupert attends the ceremony with James and Oliver Phelps.
