They may have been best of friends in the Harry Potter films but Daniel Radcliffe's and Rupert Grint's relationship in real-life is rather different.
The film's main star has revealed that he barely speaks to the red head but is good friends with his female co-star Emma Watson.
Radcliffe, 22, made the frank statement while speaking to the Sunday Mirror recently.

'There's this idea that Emma Watson, Rupert and myself are the best of friends who always hang out together,' he said.
'I'm just going to put [it] out there – Emma and I text all the time but Rupert and I never text each other, we never see each other.
'If I see him every six months or so, it's a friendly "Hello, how's things with you?" But that's about it,' he added.
The revelation may come as a shock to fans of the famous books and films who have followed the duo on screen over the past ten years.

Radcliffe and Grint put on their best smiles at the premiere of the eighth and final Harry Potter film last Summer but have swiftly moved on from their working relationship.
Radcliffe is preparing for the release of his first film since the wizard series came to an end, The Woman In Black.
Again he is seen taking on the main role in a film based on a novel, and it is the first time he has played a character older than his real-life age.
'It's my first grown-up role,' he told The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye last year.
'I'm supposed to be 24 in this. And I've got a son.

'The Woman In Black is very different from Harry Potter,' he added. 'But it's different enough without me having to go all extreme and play a drug- dealing rent boy, or something where people go: "Oh, OK, he's trying to shock us now." I was simply after a good role.'
Meanwhile, Radcliffe's main co-stars have been getting on with their own careers.
Watson has enjoyed a part in the recently released My Week With Marilyn, and Grint was given the opportunity to star in music video for singer Ed Sheeran.
