Rupert Grint NOT Encouraging Kids to Read Controversial Novel


Rupert Grint


The 'Harry Potter' star was simply asked about his favorite novel when he mentioned about Anthony Burgess' 'A Clockwork Orange'.

A representative for Rupert Grint is adamant the actor is not encouraging children to read graphic novel "A Clockwork Orange" in a new poster campaign - he was merely celebrating his favorite book. The "Harry Potter" star posed with a copy of Anthony Burgess' controversial work - which features scenes of rape and murder - as part of the American Library Association's READ campaign.

The scheme is aimed at encouraging children and teenagers to indulge in classic literature - but Grint insists he was not advising youngsters to read the 1962 novel. A spokeswoman for the star tells WENN, "He was asked his favorite book - he isn't suggesting other people read it - he is just supporting the initiative."

Rupert Grint will be making more public appearances soon for the latest installment of "Harry Potter" series will hit the U.S. and U.K. theaters on November 19.
