Rupert Grint does not count himself among the massive number of males who probably want to smooch Emma Watson.
“It was actually okay,” Grint, 22, said of his onscreen kiss with Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which opened in theaters Friday. “It was just the anticipation. Neither of us were looking forward to it.”
Grint does, however, acknowledge that may seem a bit unbelievable to most fans.
“It sounds crazy, Emma’s amazing,” he says. “I’ve seen her grow up and known her since she was nine. It just doesn’t feel right.”
