Religion

Religion is something which has always fascinated me. I went to a Catholic primary school but I’m not a Catholic. But I was quite a god-fearing little boy. They instilled it in me. I mean, the stories were always so terrifying. And then when I grew up a bit I kind of realised there are other things out there, and other theories. What I believe now changes all the time but I’d never say I was a complete atheist, or unaccepting of anything. I’m kind of struggling with that. I don’t know, it just fascinates me, the universe in general.

Editorial

Rupert Grint was born in Hertfordshire, England.

Grint hasn't expressed his religious views. Most Q&A sites seem to agree that he's Christian,[1] which is no surprise, considering he's a white Englishman. A clue to his denomination might be that he attended a Catholic school as a child.[2]

The absence of politics

Grint hasn't had much to say about politics either. He did, when talking about his love of punk music, indicate a possible interest in the idea of no government, saying:

I love the madness behind [punk music]. The craziness, the passion. And the whole anarchist thing is quite cool.[3]

However, he's young, rich, and famous and his pals Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson are both pretty liberal, so my guess is Grint is a gay rights promoting, environmentalist liberal.
