Rupert Grint Rolling Stone's Hot Sidekick of 2009

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.

Ron is the best character EVER! and rupert grint is the best ron EVER!!
that article was soooo funny!!
My friends go: ewww, rupert grint is ugly! so im like nooooooo!! how can they thikn that? he plays RON!!!!
dude and he is smokin’ :D .
To me he isnt the side-kick. because harry wouldnt be harry without his friends, its why I prefer calling them the trio, because they are all main characters…. even though their names arent in the name of the book series.

I thinlk Rupert has great comedic timing – his looks, his reactions to Harry or Hermoine – I think he’s a great side-kick and a talent in his own right
