Despite being in the world-famous Harry Potter movies, Rupert Grint still regularly gets mistaken for fellow red-headed musician Ed Sheeran... And the best bit is that he doesn't even bother to correct them anymore!

The Ron Weasley actor star claims his ginger hair and striking resemblance to the acoustic pop singer often results in confusion among fans especially after he landed a starring role in Ed's music video for "Lego House" two years ago.

Remembering the glory days of The Chamber of Secrets, when he was the only weirdly hot ginger in town and everyone just wanted to hear him say "BLIMEY HARRY", Grint revealed in a recent interview that:

People think I’m Ed Sheeran. They compliment me on my music career and I just play along with it! It’s never too bad, you get the odd person staring at you but it’s pretty manageable.

In other very awesome Rupert Grint news, the ginger admitted that before Harry Potter, all he wanted to be was an ice-cream man. He admitted:

My main career ambition was to be an ice-cream man. In fact I bought an ice-cream van as my first car! I don’t drive it much because real ice-cream men get pretty territorial, and even if I just take it to Tesco it’s amazing how many people start queuing up to buy ice-creams.

I've heard of celebrity indulgences, but this one really takes the c̶a̶k̶e̶ … Er, the ice-cream. How cool is it that Rupert just rolls into town to deliver free treats? I just love him...
