Harry Potter's Rupert Grint 'Couldn't Even Really Guess' How Much Money He Has In the Bank

It's probably a safe bet to say that, financially speaking, the main stars of the Harry Potter film series are pretty much set for life. But how much are they actually worth? Don’t ask Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in all eight films. He apparently couldn't even fathom a guess as to how much money he's got in the bank.

Last time we checked, Grint was the fifth wealthiest Harry Potter star, with a net worth of approximately $50 million. It's a hefty sum that puts him in line behind Daniel Radcliffe ($110 million), Robert Pattinson ($100 million), Emma Watson ($80 million), and Kenneth Branagh ($60 million). But in a recent interview with The Radio Times, Grint admitted that he doesn’t even know the ballpark of his net worth.

"I actually don't know how much I have," the 30-year-old actor said. "I couldn't even really guess. It doesn't really motivate me too much. It makes you comfortable, that's the good thing about it, I think."

"I'm glad it's there, but I'm not really that focused on it,” he added.

Since his Harry Potter days, Grint has gone on to appear in several TV series and films, and now stars in the TV adaptation of Snatch, based on the Guy Ritchie film of the same name. In late September, Grint revealed that he almost quit his role as Harry Potter's BFF following 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire due to the stress of the series' popularity.

"It’s a big sacrifice," the actor told ​Independent. "You take for granted anonymity, just doing normal stuff, just going out. Everything was different and a little bit scary. There were times when I was like, 'I’m done.'" Though he certainly benefited financially from staying on, who knows if he even noticed.

Pottery Barn Is Launching a Friends-Inspired Furniture Line That Includes Rachel’s Iconic Apothecary Table

To celebrate this fall’s 25th anniversary of the premiere of Friends in 1994, Pottery Barn is releasing a line of furniture inspired by the beloved NBC sitcom, Deadline reports.

The collection will feature accessories, furniture, and tabletop items, including Central Perk mugs. One highlight is a replica of the apothecary table that made a name for apothecary tables everywhere with its spotlight-stealing performance in the season 6 episode “The One with the Apothecary Table.” In it, Rachel purchases an apothecary table from Pottery Barn and, when she finds out Phoebe hates Pottery Barn, tells her the table is an antique from the “days of yore.” It gets more complicated (and hilarious) from there.

According to BuzzFeed, the episode was actually part of a product placement deal with Pottery Barn, and Entertainment Weekly even ranked it first on their “Best Product Placement” list for Friends.

You can shop the collection beginning on July 30, with prices starting at $12.50. If you’re a diehard Friends fanatic looking to celebrate its 25th anniversary in a way that Rachel Green would be proud of, you can also enter Pottery Barn’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a free trip for two to Los Angeles, complete with a $1000 shopping spree to Pottery Barn and a Warner Bros. Studio Deluxe Tour which includes, of course, a visit to the Central Perk set.

And, if you haven’t seen “The One with the Apothecary Table,” you can watch it on Netflix before Friends leaves for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max in 2020.
