Legendary NYC punk venue CBGB shuttered in 2006 after 36 years of business, but its legacy lives on — in stories, in memories, in music, and in the form of Ron Weasley’s bare exposed ass. That’s right: Rupert Grint plays Cheetah Chrome, one fifth of the first-wave punk band the Dead Boys, in the upcoming “CBGB” film, which hits theaters October 11. The general consensus around the Frisky office at the moment is that Rupert is one of the few gingers we are not hot for, but I kind of disagree. I always had a thing for Ron, you know? If you, like me, have been waiting years to get a glimpse of the old Weasley backside, now’s your chance! [MTV]
Amy Adams is a really wonderful actress (check her out in “The Master” — she gives Philip Seymour Hoffman an amazing handjob, trust us). But for as great as she is, she’s never really been on the high fashion radar. So we thought she was a surprising choice as Band of Outsiders newest celeb model. BoA is not above stunts — earlier this year they held the “longest runway show ever,” which was basically just a storefront window with models in rotating outfits — and in the past they’ve used both Michelle Williams and Rupert Grint as models. Here, Amy does an admirable job of presenting the Boy by Band of Outsiders collection in a naturalistic, girly way. More photos after the jump!

“When I was on the set with Daniel and Rupert, it was normally me who went to the guys with the questions about guys because I don’t pretend to understand the male gender. I’m just like, ‘What is going on here? What should I be doing? I don’t understand.’ So they’ve helped me out a bit and been like my protective big brothers.”
—Emma Watson tells Parade magazine that it was mighty handy to have Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint around on the set of the “Harry Potter” series. Wait, does this mean her boyfriend George Craig, of the band One Night Only, isn’t the perfect specimen we imagined? [People] Keep reading »
Good news: you can hear the words “Charlie Sheen” and not want to barf! I know you want to know how: Just listen to the stars of “Harry Potter” try to pronounce words in “American accents.” Boo-yah! Let’s have some mozzarella sticks at the Olive Garden and watch. [MTV] Keep reading »
I have no shame in telling the world that I love Harry Potter. My mom and I read the first book together, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Yes, dear readers, I was the one who had the next book release marked in my calendar, and no, I did not stand in line at Barnes & Noble for hours waiting to buy the newest copy—I pre-ordered it and got to skip the line. Duh. Now, fellow Harry Potter fans, rejoice—the long-awaited Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park opens tomorrow in Orlando. A few of the movie’s stars, including Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, celebrated the opening on Wednesday night. Good thing, since they’re still crying after the final flick wrapped.
The 20-acre park has Hogwarts Castle and even Hogsmeade. J.K. Rowling herself approved every tiny detail, of course, giving the park her seal of authenticity. There are two roller coasters, Ollivander’s wand shop, and even butterbeer. Anyone up for a road trip? [Universal Orlando] Keep reading »
When you’re a celebrity, staying in
the public eye cognito is key. Best way to achieve said results? Disguises. Just ask Joaquin Phoenix. Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint attended the Reading Festival in the U.K. and took a tip from his playbook by showing up in some oh-so-inconspicuous matching helmets and goggles. Of course, no one noticed them at all as they rocked out to the punk band Gallows. After the jump some other great celebrity disguises guaranteed to promote attention anonymity.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson stepped onto a very soggy red carpet last night for the world premiere of “Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince” in London. Even completely soaked and standing under umbrellas, the cast still looked magically delicious—except Helena Bonham Carter who wore an unsurprisingly witchy ensemble. But the torrential downpour was not the only hurdle to clear for the premiere. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
