Rupert Grint: Ron Weasley Grows Up

Rupert Grint, who is best known for playing Harry Potter’s bumbling sidekick Ron Weasley in the megamillion-earning film series, has opted for a more adult tone to his next film.

In Cherrybomb, the 21-year-old Grint reportedly strips naked and has sex scenes with 23-year-old co-star Kimberly Nixon (Wild Child).

The Sun reports that Grint, seen here shirtless with Nixon on top, plays one of three friends who embark on a week of drinkin’, druggin’, sexin’ and stealin’ (cars).

Grint told MTV that there is also a love triangle at the center of the story.

“My character Malacy works at a leisure center in Belfast. It’s not really a proper job, but this girl Michelle is his boss’s daughter. She’s really exotic and fashionable and she gets his attention, along with his friend Luke, and she starts this crazy competition thing between them.”

A “leisure center” is a British way of saying “escort service,” which is an American way of saying, “hooker store.”
