Rupert Grint, aka Ron Weasley, Owns Miniature Donkeys

By: Christopher Donaldson

How on earth does Rupert Grint find time to care for miniature donkeys between Make Mine Milk awareness photo-shoots, breezy lunches with Providence, Rhode Island undergrads, and leading a cast of nude, drug-loving, car-stealing alcoholics in the film Cherrybomb?

No rest for the adorable and weary.

The actor will also grace the summer issues of Attitude and That magazines. Here are some fun facts you may or may not already know about Rupert: 

1. He suffers from arachnophobia.

2. He owns two miniature donkeys named Shakespeare and Pandora.

3. He owns miniature pigs and hedgehogs.

4. Unlike most of us, he’s really young and really rich.

Oh, and he co-stars in that low-budget Sundance-friendly film you’ve probably never heard of; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 – an exploration of transgressive sexual politics surrounding the polished veneer of traditional English boarding school culture. Do I have that right?
