Grint your teeth and bare it scene

Rupert Grint admits filming his first sex scene was embarrassing - but it was worse watching it back with his parents.
The 21-year-old, best known as wizard Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, appears in his first nude scenes in new film Cherrybomb - and faced watching a preview DVD at home in Hertfordshire with dad Nigel and mum Joanne.
"Filming it was a really nerve-wracking experience but the worst bit was watching it with my parents," he told the Daily Mirror.
"It was agonising. The scene's quite tastefully done but it's not the sort of moment you really want to share with your mum and dad. When the scene arrived we all sat there not really saying anything. Afterwards nobody talked about it, which was kind of a relief."
But Rupert admitted the scene was more difficult for Welsh actress Kimberley Nixon, who plays his love interest in the Belfast-based movie.
"Obviously, I really didn't want my bum up there on the screen but the scene isn't too graphic and most of it is suggested rather than seen," he said.
"It was more embarrassing for Kimberley because a lot more of her body is shown, but you just have to get into that moment and get on with it."
