Why Hollywood does not want to hire Rupert Grint?
Rupert Grint got his big break in the entertainment industry when he was only 11 years old. As you may remember all those who grew up in the 2000s, the red-haired actor played the wizard Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movie saga. The franchise, which lasted more than a decade, helped secure his place in the world of cinema, consolidating him as one of the most famous child actors in history. Also, when Potter's eighth and final film debuted in 2011, Grint seemed ready to take off his Gryffindor tunic and leave in an attempt to govern Hollywood. However, his career has not blossomed exactly as fans would have expected…
What could have happened that Hollywood does not want to hire Rupert Grint anymore? Like this actor, there are several celebrities who suddenly disappear from the artistic medium for no apparent reason and then we discovered that they either no longer are offered worthy works on the big screen, or they themselves decided to stay away from the spotlight forever for their emotional health. The incognito about Grint, nevertheless, is the same for millions of internauts.
Compared to his co-stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, Grint has had a much lighter workload. His colleagues in the profession have fared much better than the redhead. We remember that, in addition to her work as an actress, the beautiful Watson is also a great defender of women's rights and an activist in the empowerment of women in different spheres. In the case of Radcliffe, he has also been quite active in the media.
He only has appeared in 3 independent projects towards the end of the series, missing the opportunity to show the acting skills. Although, in the same way, there are several who in turn are marked forever by a character and it is difficult or impossible for them to achieve success by embodying some other role. So it seems like that has happened to the famous Rupert, who apparently will always be remembered in the role of Harry's inseparable friend, Ron Weasley.
"Driving Lessons" received mixed reviews in 2006, while "Cherrybomb" was widely ignored. Apparently, the shadow of his previous work has not allowed him to achieve success with his new projects. We wonder if that moment will come at some point. Fortunately, his talent is undoubted; Not to mention that he enjoys the best years of his youth because he is currently only 30 years old and his whole life is ahead to try his luck in other areas.
To make matters worse, the remake of Wild Target was a complete failure for the actor. We have all gone through those moments in which it does not seem that we are going to find the route to success again. Maybe that is not even what we seek or what we need but rather a way out of the hole where we are. This actor is precisely at this moment at present time. At least it does not affect his career much.
Then there was Harry Potter, something that was very complicated to leave. How do you change the page of the fruit of your greatest success as an actor? It should not be at all easy to get rid of all those beautiful memories that took him to the top and gave him the recognition he still has among the fans of the saga. But, it is known to all, of course by himself, that he could not live forever from the eternal role of Ron Weasley; for that reason, it was necessary to evolve like artists of the dramatic art.
In fact, the decade he spent working in the saga was so hard, he thought about giving up acting altogether. However, his own friends motivated him to continue with his career, as he had just started in this area. Although the land is not always flat and simple to travel, true friends and of course the family are at our side just when you need them. In Grint's case, they also remained stoic with him.
"I fell in love with it while I was doing it. But I definitely did think, 'Is this really what I want to do?' I wanted to live a little bit." We all reach that moment in life when we have to be honest with ourselves and answer these internal questions. Rupert was right, at least that's what he thought was right in that moment of self-reflection, when he retired from the cameras and dedicated his time to what really makes him happy, to be surrounded by his people and to venture.
"I wanted to live a little bit. I felt like I’d missed out on a lot. Being in that adult environment from such an early age, it was nice to just be away from it and not have any kind of commitments at all, and just be a bit free." Although many believe that the lives of actors and celebrities, in general, is wonderful, it is not always so. There are millions who would give everything they have to lead this same lifestyle. However, they ignore that behind each star, there is also a person who goes through equally complicated moments and has to deal, often alone, with them.
During the sabbatical years that he took, Grint did things he always wanted to do. This type of pauses in our lives often teach us parts of us that we completely ignored. Nothing better than a personal adventure to know our true self better. Those who have already had the opportunity to do so will know what we are talking about when we mention it. Well, that was exactly what the famous and talented Rupert decided to put into practice.
"My first ambition was to become an ice-cream man, which is why I bought the Bedford van. I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free ..." Although many people find it a crazy idea to go from being a movie star to Driving an ice cream vehicle, often what makes people happy are the humblest details. It is those little things that life offers us that draws us enormous smiles and generates great sighs of joy.
In 2011, Grint became a hotelier, opening Rigsy's Guest House in Hereford, England. In a new attempt to try his luck in a new field. However, those who are dedicated to business say that it is essential to always have knowledge about the type of business you want to establish. Success can reach even those who do not have too much or even no experience in this or that field. But, it is always better to arrive with something to our credit.
The establishment turned out to be a resounding failure, and Grint closed it 4 years later, having won only $2,834. This could have meant a huge catastrophe for the actor, who may have collapsed and refused to continue. However, it is wise and demonstrates a strongness and emotional maturity of getting up from this type of situations. When we are in the hole it seems that we can never get out of there, but there is always a possible way out.
Although he had other appearances in some interesting programs and films, it turns out that he never got to reap the success he deserves. He has not yet been able to leave the typecasting that he meant to be the best friend of Harry Potter in the well-known saga of the sorcerer of Hogwarts. In any case, as we have mentioned it before, he is a 30-year-old boy who will still be sure that new opportunities will come to him and he will know how to take advantage of them.
It's a pity that he has not borrowed Ron Weasley's wand to conjure up better projects. It's time to leave that role behind and focus on the new projects that come to his door. The good thing is that he has the unconditional support of his people at all times. With the help of his talent and his fresh youth surely sooner rather than later the good will come and then we will see his triumph again. Maybe it's at the least expected moment and when he least looks for it.
