You’d think that being one of the stars of the Harry Potter movie series would result in being frequently recognized in public. Well, for Rupert Grint (who played Ron Weasley in the series) it’s not that simple.

Grint says, however, that he is often mistaken for another British redhead, Ed Sheeran.

"It’s kinda 50/50 now. It's like if someone stops me, it could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me," Grint said during Monday’s appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Grint reveals sometimes even celebrities confuse the two stars.

Meanwhile, it has been a great week for Ed Sheeran. His new album, ÷, has had one of the best-ever opening weeks. You can buy it now on iTunes.
