The Reason Rupert Grint Didn’t Want To Kiss Emma Watson In Harry Potter


Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger might’ve
lived magically ever after in the final Harry Potter film, but in reality co-stars Rupert
Grint and Emma Watson didn’t want anything to do with kissing each other. Why? One word: cooties. No, just kidding. Actually, it’s because the two were more like
brother and sister. The pair grew up on and off screen together
he was 11 and she was nine when they first started filming so despite fans’ love of Ron
and Hermione together, it was totally awkward for them to smooch in front of the cameras
or anywhere for that matter. In 2016, Grint told People that their on-screen
smooch in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II wasn’t exactly either actor’s dream
scenario. “I’ve known Emma since she was literally 9
years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship and it just felt very surreal. I have a memory of her face getting closer
and closer. Like, ‘Oh my God.’ I can’t really remember anything apart from
that.” And it didn’t help that fans had been waiting
for years to see it. “It was such a huge moment and there was so
much expectation. Quite a lot of pressure actually.” For her part, Watson felt pretty much the
same way. She told Movies Ireland, “It’s purely the fact that he’s like my brother
and we were both totally in the same boat. I’m sure he will tell you exactly the same
thing. It was very strange and very weird. Believe me, we both wanted it to be over equally
as much as the other. It’s honestly like kissing my brother. It was weird.” It got even weirder for Watson, though, because
she also had to kiss her other long-time co-star, Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter himself. And it wasn’t just any old run-of-the-mill
kiss. The kiss happened during a nightmare sequence
in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I where Ron imagined Hermione hooking up with
Harry – while the two were naked and covered in silver paint and glitter. Hey, Ron has some weird dreams, okay? Watson told J-14 that while the kiss was weird
on a personal level, as an actor she’s happy with the finished result. “I’m proud of it. And considering how bloody awkward it was
[…] I’m really impressed that we managed to make it look anything other than awkward. Dan and I are like brother and sister, so
it was tough making it look passionate, believe me.” Adding to the difficulty was the fact that
Grint kept cracking up during filming, to the point where he was eventually banished
from the set. Grint told J-14, “When they were there actually filming that
kiss, they did actually want me there to kind of play off something, but I just found that
too funny. Emma sent me out because I kept laughing. It just looked really strange.” For his part, Radcliffe mostly seems to want
people to stop asking him about it. He told MTV News, “I’ve just been getting into so much trouble
with Emma about this, because apparently I said in an interview that she was like an
animal. I thought it was going to be a kind of a slow,
sensual thing, and Emma really went for it.” He continued, “It was kind of weird. It is a bit like kissing your sister. I’m not complaining! It was good. It was vigorous […] For me, I wasn’t too
freaked out. But it’s a bigger deal for Emma. I think it generally is a bigger deal for
girls.” So which of her co-stars does Watson think
is a better kisser? During a 2011 press conference, Watson was
asked that very question. According to The Telegraph, Watson chose the
diplomatic route and said they were equally bad. “With Harry, I was half naked and covered
in silver paint, so that was pretty awkward. Kissing Rupert was also awkward. We had just been soaked by an enormous bucket
of water, which we had to pretend we didn’t know was going to hit us.” She concluded, “They were both strange situations to be in,
but both were complete gentlemen. It’s obviously hard to put our personal history
to one side considering we grew up together. But once you’ve done it four or five times,
it gets quite boring. So it definitely got easier.” “…yeah. It’s over now!” “Yes!” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. ha! It is clearly more weird for her as she was not sexually attracted to them. Basically friendzoned to the point they become "brothers".

    When a woman friendzones you to the point of no return you become her "brother".

  2. Westermarck Effect:

    The Westermarck effect, also known as reverse sexual imprinting, is a psychological hypothesis that people who live in close domestic proximity during the first few years of their lives become desensitized to sexual attraction. This hypothesis was first proposed by Finnish anthropologist Edvard Westermarck in his book The History of Human Marriage (1891) as one explanation for the incest taboo.

  3. When growing up WITH people we've known for two decades. It's not sexy. Even though there's no DNA connection. It's feels incestuous.
    I feel them. It's not comfortable.

  4. u know ur winning in life when the me ory of making out with Emma Watson, is a haunting memory!๐Ÿ˜•

  5. I never liked them kissing either or, what it felt like to me, a forced romance all because I had the craziest crush on hermoine/emma watson after she returned 3 years later for prisoner of azkaban.. I'd fallen for her so hard that I painted a school portrait of her and my first paycheck, which was a $100 .. I wanted to send it to her. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜…
