'Harry Potter' star Rupert Grint who played the iconic Ronald Weasley in the big-screen adaptation of JK Rowling's hit wizard series, has revealed he has absolutely no idea as to how much money he has in his bank account. 

Grint's net worth is estimated to be around £28 million, and the actor shared he was happy knowing that he has enough money and assets to help him lead a "comfortable life" without having to constantly check his finances.

While giving an interview on the 'Radio Times' Christmas edition, he ended up revealing, "I actually don't know how much I have. I couldn't even really guess. It doesn't really motivate me too much."

"It makes you comfortable, that's the good thing about it, I think," he continued. "I'm glad it's there but I'm not really that focused on it."

Grint along with his fellow co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson became extremely famous after the release of the first Potter film, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' in 2001. Appearing on the movie also financially boosted the status of his co-stars, with Radcliffe's net worth estimated to be £87 million while Watson's is believed to be £57 million. 

But becoming famous at the green age of 11 brought its own share of troubles, with Rupert even having to don disguises on many occasions to avoid being hounded by fans.

He also admitted that given the intensity of how famous he was, he 'lost' himself in it and told the radio station, "I struggle to remember life before it. I think I lost myself a little bit along the way."

After the success of the Harry Potter films, Rupert has appeared on TV including sitcoms such as 'Sick Note' and the crime drama 'Snatch'. He was also seen filming scenes for a role in an adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel, 'ABC Murders', wherein he sported a sharp suit and a mustache. 

He also recently spoke about how he almost quit playing the role of Ronald Weasley in the 'Harry Potter' series after doing the fourth part of the famous franchise.

Rupert revealed how there were many times when he felt like he was "done" with the series, with the quitting instinct most reverberating after he finished filming for 'Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire'.

As reported by the Independent, he said, "I had just finished my GCSEs, I thought 'Do I actually want to keep doing this?' You take for granted anonymity, just doing normal stuff, just going out, everything was different and a little bit scary. There were times when I was like 'I’m done.'"
