RUPERT Grint thought it was a “good idea” to buy a hovercraft and an orange car.
The Harry Potter actor admits he has “not much idea” of how much money he has from starring in the film series — one of the most successful movie franchises of all time — but has used his riches to collect a number of unorthodox vehicles, which also includes an ice-cream van, and a pink BMX.
“I don’t really like to blend in,” he said. “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 maneuver.
“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,” he said. “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.”
