Harry Potter star Rupert Grint said kissing co-star Emma Watson in the new film was "really weird" because they had known each other for so long.
The actor, who plays Ron Weasley, said neither he nor Emma - who plays Hermione Granger - were looking forward to filming the scene in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part Two.
He told ITV1's Daybreak: "It sounds crazy because of course she's lovely and I'm sure loads of guys are just really jealous, but it just really felt weird for some reason. Just because I've known her for so long - since she was like nine years old.
"I remember seeing her face getting closer and closer as I was leaning in, and I thought 'What are we doing, this is just really weird?'"
Grint also confessed all three of the film's main stars burst into tears as they filmed the final scenes in the long-running series.
He said: "We kind of knew it was coming and building up to that final week, and yes, it was just like 10 years - my whole childhood - came down to this tiny little scene and that was it.
"It was really sad, we all cried. It was kind of seeing Dan and then Emma cry that triggered me, and it was kind of this weird mix of emotions really - it's hard to describe."
