'Harry Potter' Star Rupert Grint Talks About Getting Swine Flu

Rupert Grint In light of the news that "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" star Rupert Grint was recovering from a small case of swine flu (and that his co-star Emma Watson hates kissing him — though that had nothing to do with his sickness), the real-life Ron Weasley has opened up about his recent experience.

"It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu," Rupert said at a press conference yesterday, according to The Daily Telegraph."I thought: 'Am I going to die?' But it was just like any other flu really."

It's a very good thing the actor didn't get a more serious case of the virus — the extent of it, he says, included "a sore throat and I went to bed for a few days" — because he has quite a busy schedule ahead.

The release of the sixth "Harry Potter" flick is only one week away, and before it hits the box office, the cast of wizards will be premiering the movie around the world. Yesterday, they stopped in London for a Photocall, and today the movie saw its world premiere in England's capital, as well (stay tuned to Hollywood Crush for pictures from that!)

How happy are you that Rupert only had a minor bout with swine flu?
