Rupert Grint overcoming spider fear to enjoy Australian holiday

June 24, 2011 - London

'Harry Potter' actor Rupert Grint is finally trying to get over his fear of spiders so that he could enjoy his vacation in Australia.

Grint who shares the phobia like his onscreen character 'Ron Weasley', has now tackled the problem which had always stopped him from holidaying.

"I'm arachnophobic. It's really affected my life. I check my shoes every time I put them on. I check my bed sheets and pillows," The Daily Express quoted the actor as telling Attitude magazine.

"I'm going to Australia in a few weeks. I've never been before. Spiders have always stopped me," he added.
