Harry Potter's Rupert Grint says swine flu was fine

Tbd-rupertgrint070709 Rupert Grint, who plays the steadfast Harry Potter pal Ron Weasley in that corner of celluloid history, says his recent bout with swine flu really wasn't all that bad. Great, now all the kids will want swine flu.

"I did have swine flu, but it was just like any other flu I've had before," he told the U.K.'s Mirror. "It was just a sore throat and I was in bed for a while, but it was quite scary when I was first told I had swine flu because of what's been in the press. I was like 'am I going to die?', but it was fine -- just a sore throat."

The 20-year-old actor's visit from the H1N1 virus kept him from the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for a couple days, but now he's all better, and ready to take all your money at the box office.
