It turns out that a grainy photo posted by Perez Hilton on Thursday (April 21) is not “Harry Potter’s” Rupert Grint smoking pot (or salvia) from a bong. No, the culprit is just some random ginger-haired teen who happens to bear the slightest resemblance to Grint.
As Gina Serpe at E! points out, this kid’s guns are a bit more shapely than Grint’s — so that’s the first giveaway. Then, of course, there’s this statement:
“This is categorically NOT Rupert Grint,” his rep told E! News. “It is an impersonator/lookalike.”
Well, we wouldn’t go so far as labeling the kid an impersonator. I mean, every teen with pasty skin and red hair isn’t a Grint copycat. We’re sure, however, that whoever the anonymous teen is, he definitely celebrated 420 Day earlier this week.
