Harry Potter star Rupert Grints strange collection

Rupert Grint has already made his fortune starring as Ron Weasley in the ‘Harry Potter’ films, and he has a novel way to spend it – the young actor likes to buy unusual vehicles! The 22-year-old star says he has “not much idea” of how much money he has made from the film franchise, but he has used some of the funds to buy an ice cream van, a pink BoX, an orange Range Rover, and a hovercraft. “I don’t really like to blend in. I like standing out,” he explains. “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 didn’t even think about the connection with being ginger.” He adds that the ice cream van was a childhood fantasy, but the reality hasn’t worked out quite as well as he imagined. “I don’t really use it as much as I thought I would. It’s not the most practical vehicle. It’s only got one seat. It’s basically a kitchen.”
