HOLLYWOOD, CA (rushprnews) July 10, 2007 – International teen stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint literally cemented their place in Hollywood history Monday when they placed their wand, hand and foot prints in the hallowed concrete of Graumanâ€™s Chinese Theater.

Hundreds of fans flocked to the city to catch a glimpse of the stars, and the screams almost drowned out the gracious remarks of the â€œHarry Potterâ€ trio.
Grint said, â€œ[I was] shaking out there I was so nervous. Iâ€™m so proud to be a part of this.â€
Similarly, Watson said â€œThis was the biggest thing Iâ€™ve done in my entire life.â€ In an interview with Hollywood Today, she added, â€œI was amazed they asked us. I couldnâ€™t believe it. Thatâ€™s such a big deal. I was really, really flattered. Itâ€™s just amazing to be doing it, really amazing.â€
Radcliffe relished the privilege of being honored alongside greats like John Wayne. He said, â€œMy favorite John Wayne moment is in a really early John Wayne movie. . . heâ€™s walking through the square and heâ€™s quite young and there are all these birds in the square. He walks in and
they all flutter away and he goes, â€˜Get out of my way, pigeon,â€™ which is just fantastic. So if I can have my handprints next to that man, then . . .â€
The honor comes at a pivotal point in the lives of the threesome as their latest â€œPotterâ€ film hits theaters and the reported final book in the series hits shelves. All three have veritably grown up on the big screen, an experience none of them really regret.
Watson said, â€œI remember, especially with the earlier films, Dan and Rupert would grow a
couple of inches by the end of shooting because it was so long or by the time the film was released. And that was kind of crazy. And I remember, on the second one, I was still losing teeth.â€ She continued, â€œIâ€™ve never grown up any other way . . . And weâ€™ve been doing it since we were so young, so I canâ€™t really remember what life was like before I was in these films. . . Itâ€™s just the way it is.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think you realize when youâ€™re growing up,â€ Radcliffe said. â€œI think itâ€™s just one of those things that just happens to you. Then somebody shows you a photograph of yourself when you were ten and you recoil in horror.â€
Horrifying photos aside, Grint said, â€œItâ€™s only when you look back on the first one that you really realize how much weâ€™ve grown up together. Itâ€™s been really fun, though. . . Itâ€™s been really cool.â€visit Hollywood TodayÂ
