“It’s got me into a few tricky situations,” the actor added. “I met this drag queen, and I’d end up going back to her little flat with all those drag queen friends. I couldn’t say no. They dressed me up. We went to get bagels at like 4:00 AM. I was in full heels and a feather boa. It was really weird.”

Not only that, Grint was dressed up in heels and a feather boa because he just kept saying yes to whatever they suggested. He went to their apartment and hung out with them. Things evolved into him allowing them to dress him up.
