Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, 21, watched his first on-screen sex scene in the company of his parents.
People Magazine reports that Grint told London’s Mirror about the screening of Cherrybomb, a film about sex,
drugs and stealing cars. The inaugural sex scene sounded all sorts of
uncomfortable for everyone involved. Painful is another word that
comes to mind. So is unbearable, cringe-worthy, nauseating…
“The scene’s quite tastefully done, but it’s not the sort of moment you really want to share with your mum and dad.
the scene arrived we all sat there not really saying anything.
Afterwards nobody talked about it, which was kind of a relief.”
Luckily, the scene wasn’t too graphic, and seemed to allude to sexy time rather than actually show it. However, Kimberly Nixon (Rupert’s co-star) bore the brunt of the exposure. The camera only caught Grint’s rear end. Such is life.
least the first one’s over with. Grint assured his audience that next
go-round, he won’t be as shy, “or at least not as nervous.”
