Potter star fears religious fanatics.

HARRY POTTER star Rupert Grint has spoken of the "terrifying" moment he saw his picture being burned by religious fanatics.

The 20-year-old, who plays the teenage wizard's flame-haired chum Ron Weasley in the hit movies, said his fame won him plenty of attention from female fans, but he was coy about rumours of a possible romance with co-star Emma Watson.

Grint said he had "no idea" what to do with all the money he has made from his film career.

"It's taken me years to get used to being recognised in the street," he said.

"The most terrifying, though, was when I saw a picture in a newspaper of a bookburning in America's Bible Belt.

"And there was a picture of my face smouldering on top of the pyre because they thought the Harry Potter films were endorsing witchcraft. That was when it hit me how big this thing had become."
