Rupert Grint chatted with The Mirror on filming his sex scene for Cherrybomb: ‘Filming it was a really nerve-wracking experience but the worst bit was watching it with my parents. It was agonising. The scene’s quite tastefully done but it’s not the sort of moment you really want to share with your mum and dad. When the scene arrived we all sat there not really saying anything. Afterwards nobody talked about it, which was kind of a relief.
Shooting the sex scene was a pretty anxious time because I didn’t know how it would be shot. It’s the anticipation that scares you most. Obviously, I really didn’t want my bum up there on the screen but the scene isn’t too graphic and most of it is suggested rather than seen. But you do feel very self-conscious. It was more embarrassing for Kimberley because a lot more of her body is shown. But you just have to get into that moment and get on with it.’
Rupert also revealed that he is going on a road trip in an ice cream van this summer after filming Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows: ‘I’ve just had it done up because when I got it, it was a bit rough. I don’t use it much in the winter but now it’s open season with the weather improving. It’s not the most practical vehicle and I’ve stopped playing the music because you get young kids running out of their houses trying to buy a Cornetto. It’s basically a kitchen on wheels but I love it. I’ve always wanted one.’
