Felton also presented the Choice Movie Actress award alongside Christopher Mintz-Plasse. As a relative newcomer to the awards-show circuit and first-time Teen Choice Awards presenter, MTV News asked the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” star how much he had prepared for his big day.
“If it’s over-prepared, you see sometimes that it’s so clearly scripted, and it’s not going to be any good,” Felton said. “I’m trying to stay loose at the tongue and see what comes out.”
Still, he had planned a bit of a skit with Mintz-Plasse to make their presenting duties memorable. When they came out onstage, Mintz-Plasse told Felton that he had a fling with one of the five nominees but had been avoiding her for a while. Felton comforted him by saying that there were five potential winners, so the odds of Mintz-Plasse’s lady being chosen were pretty low, but it turns out that winner Cameron Diaz had been the slighted lover all along. After a cute interchange with Mintz-Plasse, Diaz accepted her award.
But that wouldn’t be the only time Felton was called up to the microphone that night. He won the Choice Villain award for his work in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” and then he and Grint took the stage to accept the Choice Summer Movie award for the “Potter” cast.
“It’s been nearly 11 years since we were cast, so thank you so much for really sharing the journey with us and making these films such a success. None of it would have been possible without you guys,” Felton said in his acceptance speech.
The last we saw of Grint and Felton, the man better known as Ron Weasley had crashed the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” premiere wearing a shirt proclaiming his love for Felton. When asked if he was excited to see Grint again at the Teen Choice Awards, Felton had to stop himself from expressing his eagerness.
“Don’t — you’ll get me started then I’ll be gushing,” he said with a laugh.
