Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, has described his long-awaited screen kiss with Emma Watson as a "strange" experience – and admitted that he has never had a girlfriend.
"We've known each other for 10 years so it was a bit like kissing my sister," he told the Mail on Sunday. "We were determined to get it right the first time, but our first try was a disaster because we both felt so self-conscious and we couldn't stop laughing."
While Grint's film love life may be hotting up, the actor says he is in no rush to throw himself into off-screen romances. Despite the attentions of Harry Potter fans the young millionaire says he is "quite insecure" around girls and has yet to find anyone to suit his "weird" tastes.
"I've never been seriously involved with anyone. I've certainly never been in love. I've always preferred to keep things casual," he said. "It's not that I find it hard to meet girls – they do come up and chat me up from time to time. Sometimes I'm interested, I tend not to go for the prettier ones. I prefer the quirkier types."
