Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger might have romantic feelings for one another, but the actors who play them certainly do not.
Rupert Grint and Emma Watson - who say they’ve developed a sibling-like relationship after working together for the past decade - weren’t looking forward to the time when their characters finally got together on the big screen.
The pair’s passionate kiss in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” out Friday, was awkward to film, and even more awkward to watch, Grint tells MTV.
“It was a tricky one, because it had to be believable,” he said. “We had to look like we wanted to do it, when in reality we really didn't. We were soaking [in the scene], and that kind of made it a little bit easier, I think, because it was kind of this outburst of adrenaline.”
About four takes later, Grint said he was happy to erase the scene from his memory.
“The only good side to it was the fact that we were both in the same boat,” an equally weirded-out Watson told MTV in 2009.
“We were both just like, ‘Oh my God, I can't believe we have to do this. This is so awkward. Really awkward,’ ” she said, noting it was her first on-screen smooch. “So I could take comfort in the fact that Rupert felt the same way. We were both giggling. We were like 12-year-olds. We were like giggling children, where you just couldn't keep it together.”
Are you looking forward to seeing Ron and Hermione’s kiss in the flick?
I do not even understand how I ended up here, however I thought this post used to be great. I do not recognize who you are however definitely you're going to a famous blogger should you are not already. Cheers!
Hello There. I found your weblog the use of msn. This is a very smartly written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and return to read extra of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I'll definitely comeback.
Who really cares?
I think Rupert grew into a very handsome young man, and all this Ginger business is a form of bullying and prejudice.
He didn't like it because he's gay.
They're both adorable.
Feeling weird about kissing a hot girl......you may be gay
Feeling weird about kissing a girl you see as a sister... you may be normal.
I saw the movie....I didn't know that was in the story, and when they did kiss, it was in the most strange part of the movie, which I thought was stupid, and it WAS akward to watch! All of the sudden these two were drenched then turned uncomfortably and kissed. It looked silly, forced, and unnecessary in the film.
most strange. you can't seem to talk goodly enough. he is obviously crazy for not enjoying it. she is the prettiest girl in the films. i'd marry her
He'd rather be kissing a bloke.....jus sayin
i wish jk rowlings would start a series of books based on hermiones character. young ladies would buy millions of copies. it is nice there is a good positive role model for girls. hermione and emma watson are the best.
Evel Knievel someone obviously like gingers because I see them all day at work,most of the men at least are very arrogant.
Hey Evel! I want to see what Ron & Hermione's kids look like!
Hey Evil! I want to see what Ron & Hermione's kids look like!
It really would have been more realistic if they wrote me into the story and I got to kiss Emma. Then we could have gotten married and rebuilt Hogworts. That would have been awesome !
She should be kissing Harry. Not the red haired guy. Harry and Hermione would make a good couple. JK Rowling should have written it so that happened. Plus it should have had a happy ending. After a zillion books and 5 or 6 movies it seems like she would have at least given that to the fans.
obviously you've never read the books.
Yes every single thing must always follow all stock Hollywood tropes right? Heaven forbid anything have a shred of bucking the trend.
As emi.y pointed out...you obviously never read teh books. Ron and Hermion end up married with kids...its in the book
I agree that Harry and Hermione made a better couple but it is JKR's creation. You can always read fanfiction - some of it is written better than JKR's books (although to be honest, most is not) and you can find any pairing (or more) that suits your fancy, both during their Hogwarts years and after.
If you like Harry and Hermione you can find novel sized fanfictions that will delve into this possible relationship. You can find writers that concentrate on analyzing Harry's abuse as well (I find that facinating as JKR glosses over it). Just do a google search on "fanfiction recommendations Harry Hermione" and you will likely get something good, and possibly high quality.
They should have let me be Ruperts stand in or stunt double. I would have smooched with sweet Emma Watson all day long. She is a genuine cutie.
You sound like a seriously disturbed 65 year old man.
I agree; Emma is pretty hot ... not to mention, street legal.
I'm not going to see the movie for the kissing,but they have been friends for a long time.They've been through hell and back many times,what's wrong with that.When the first book came out I was younger than they were since then i've hopefully matured a bit and have defiantly have had my first kiss.
awww that's really sweet
Get a life sap head. Nobody cares what you have to say.
hahaha i agree 100% with Evel, nobody likes gingers, thinking about kissing one of them makes me sick to my stomach
@FDR – Good for you – that means more for me!
So evel and FDR, you obviously don't have red hair yourself, your just naturally ugly
I've never done a guy with red carpet,but he's cute i'd give it a go.
That's the spirit!
I would not see the movie just to see the kiss. I agree with the actors : kissing is not part of their relationship. I might see the movie because it is the last of the sequels,but I do not care about the kissing scene. I do not think that it is necessary. It detracts from their real relationship.
My daughter and I are gingers, and neither of us ever had any problems in the kissing area. Oh.... you mean redheaded MEN, don't you? Doesn't matter. Women like them just fine, too.
Yeah, that might be because we "Gingers" have way better uses for our tongues... The redder the head the better in...
OK, don't let anybody give you any S*#T about that remark, it was funny as hell.
nah it's easier because you don't have to look at eachother
I really don't think you quite got Ginger's comment.
