A representative for Rupert Grint has shot down reports the actor has been caught on camera smoking a bong, insisting the man featured in an allegedly incriminating photo is not the Harry Potter star.
A grainy photograph, posted on PerezHilton.com on Thursday, was said to show the British actor lighting up.

However, a spokesperson for the 22 year old has spoken out to deny any drug use speculation.

His rep tells E! News, “This is categorically NOT Rupert Grint. It is an impersonator/lookalike.”

Grint is not the only young actor to find himself caught up in a bong controversy – Disney star Miley Cyrus hit headlines in December when video footage of the teen smoking psychoactive plant Salvia emerged online – just days after she celebrated her 18th birthday.
