Rupert Grint

Rupert Grint has admitted he has “not much idea” of how much money he has from starring in the Harry Potter series – one of the most successful movie franchises of all time – but at least he’s put his wealth to good use…

Grint has used his riches to collect a number of unorthodox vehicles, including an ice-cream van, and a pink BMX!

The flame-haired actor said: “I don’t really like to blend in. I like standing out. I can’t really deal with the money thing. But it’s nice knowing that I don’t ever have to really worry about anything.

“I’ve got a hovercraft. It’s quite strange to drive, but I have fun with it. The orange Range Rover just seemed like a good idea at the time. I don’t even think about the connection with being ginger.”

Although Rupert enjoys splashing out on unusual vehicles, the 22-year-old star admits he hasn’t used his ice cream van as often as he expected to because it is quite difficult to manoeuvre.

He explained to Radio Times magazine: “It’s just something I’ve always wanted when I was a kid. I don’t really use it as much as I thought I would. I used to have stock in it, but not so much now. It’s not the most practical vehicle. It’s only got one seat. It’s basically a kitchen.”
