Rupert Grint has no idea how much money he has.
Grint’s net worth was last pegged at about $US50 million in 2016 – less than half of what his costar Daniel Radcliffe was reportedly worth.
These lofty figures are over the head of Grint, though, who told The Radio Times: “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.
“I’m glad it’s there, but I’m not really that focused on it.”
Grint has taken on a number of acting roles since the “Harry Potter” franchise wrapped in 2011, including recent roles in Sky One’s “Sick Note” and AMC’s “Snatch” reboot. He’s also starring in a BBC production of Agatha Christie’s “The ABC Murders,” which is set to premiere on December 26, alongside John Malkovich as Hercule Poirot.

Grint’s spending habits seem to align with those of his former wizarding colleagues. In 2016, Radcliffe told the Belfast Telegraph that he does very little with his fortune.
“I’m very grateful for it, because having money means you don’t have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom, career-wise,” he said.
Grint also said in his interview with The Radio Times that he still struggles with the fame that the “Harry Potter” films afforded him. “Sometimes you just want to go to B&Q,” he said, referring to the British hardware store.
He added that the first thing he did after the “Harry Potter” films wrapped was get his tonsils removed, as the producers wouldn’t allow him to have the operation. “It was too much recovery time and there was the fear that it would change my voice,” he said.
