Rupert Grint's Post-potter Struggle

Rupert Grint "hasn't adjusted" to life after the 'Harry Potter' movies.

The 22-year-old actor - who portrayed wizard schoolboy Ron Weasley in the films - admits they took over his life for years, but he "misses" them enormously.

He told Parade.com: "We had like a big wrap party when we finished and it was really nice to see everyone again from all the films. I haven't quite adjusted to life without 'Harry Potter'. I'm really sad actually, I've missed it. But I think it's a good time really to kind of move on. It has been a long time. After ten years, I do kind of want to stretch a bit more and explore different characters and do different things."

While he loved his time in the films, Rupert admits he doesn't like how he is portrayed in the final movie 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II', and has compared the balding red hair he is given with 'Celebrity Apprentice' star Donald Trump.

He explained: "I don't age gracefully in the last film when all of us get older. My hair is still red but I have a lot less of it. It was quite a shock when I saw myself in the mirror. I felt like I was looking at Donald Trump because they gave me that comb over that he has. I did get a lot of ribbing from everyone, I must admit."
