When you’re famous you try your best to keep a low profile (which never works anyway), so when someone mistakes you for someone else what do you do?
In Rupert Grint’s case you just play along with the facade.
The Former Harry Potter star seems to hasve come to accept that maybe all gingers look-a-like after being constantly mistaken for Ed Sheeran.
Talking to James Corden on The Late Show With… Grint revealed that it’s about ’50-50′ now when he’s stopped randomly in the streets by fans, they think it’s either him or The Shape Of You singer.
He revealed one peculiar encounter with British singer-song writer Leo Sayer, where:
He came up to me and said he loved my music – of course thinking I was Ed. I just played along.
To be fair when you’re doing shit like this, of course people are gonna mistake you for someone else.
Also, if you’re there asking yourself “Who the fuck is Leo Sayer?” we suggest you go ask your dad… or maybe your granddad.
Rupert Grint is set to star in the TV adaptation of Snatch alongside Dougray Scott, Phoebe Dynevor and Ed Westwick. Yup the bloke from Gossip Girl is gonna be in a TV series set against the backdrop of the UK’s criminal underworld.
