Rupert Grint is scared of spiders

Rupert Grint has arachnophobia.

Just like his Harry Potter character Ron Weasley, the 22-year-old actor is scared of spiders and is worried about his forthcoming trip to Australia.

“I’m arachnophobic. It’s really affected my life. I check my shoes every time I put them on. I check my bed sheets and pillows,” Rupert said.

“I’m going to Australia in a few weeks. I’ve never been before — spiders have always stopped me.”
