Talk about your boys of summer! Actors Rupert Grint and Dan Radcliffe are set to be featured in two  popular magazines this summer. First, as previewed in the Telegraph (complete with a new photo), actor Rupert Grint is interviewed for the July issue of FHM magazine. In the interview Rupert discusses fame and the massive popularity of the Harry Potter films, and the impact on his life.“It’s taken me years to get used to being recognised in the street," he said. The most terrifying [thing] was when I saw a picture in a newspaper of a book-burning in America’s Bible Belt. And there was a picture of my face smouldering on top of the pyre because they thought the Harry Potter films were endorsing witchcraft. That was when it hit me how big this thing had become.”Rupert continued: "I know I could use my fame to meet women and I definitely notice a lot more attention when I go out because of it. But I’m still a bit careful. I don’t want to meet a girl who’s specifically trying to take advantage of that. And I try not to Google myself because I’d find the results too uncomfortable.”

Also actor Dan Radcliffe will be featured on the cover of Esquire magazine. As seen here courtesy of our order partner you can see two new photos of the actor.

If you go to, all of the scans for the Esquire magazine article are up, but on a separate page from the home page. It is a wonderful interview, and goes beyond all of the same questions we’ve been seeing answered recently.

I do not know how one could possibly handle the worldwide fame suddenly achieved by starring in the Harry Potter films, but I am convinced that the three people that constitute the trio have done so with tremendous grace and poise.
