Rupert Grint Bought Farm Animals With His ‘Harry Potter’ Payment
The actor Rupert Grint made so much money as a child artist that he was not sure what to do with it. Talking on Armchair Expert, the actor recounted how he bought some farm animals including alpacas and pigs. “I had alpacas, pigs. It was a whole thing. Around 16, it was chaos. Alpacas are insane. Now looking back, in hindsight, rationalizing it. They’re not with me anymore,” he said.
As a teenager, the star felt too much to handle farm animals. He admits to having done nothing stupid during the recent years. “They went to a responsible alpaca farmer. I guess I just did stupid things like that … I’m one of five, and we had a field. But nowadays I’m a lot more sensible. I haven’t done anything mad like that in a while,” the actor shared.
