'Harry Potter's James and Oliver Phelps dish on their love lives
Twins James and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley in the "Harry Potter" movie franchise, say their fame may have helped their love lives.
"It certainly hasn't hurt it I suppose, you know. Playing good guys is fun 'cause people want to ... talk to you," Oliver Phelps, who plays George Weasley, told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Chris Balish. "We've gone out with other guys who have played baddies and people are almost like, 'I'm not talking to you.' It's certainly not been a bad thing."
When asked whether or not they were single, James Phelps, who plays Fred Weasley, said, laughing: "No comment."
Oliver Phelps added that it's not bad when they meet new girls and it's just all "good fun."The final part of the "Harry Potter" series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is set to hit theaters in the United States on July 15. The first part of the final installment, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" was released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the U.S. on April 15.
The twins both agreed that the best part about the last movie was getting to play a different side of the Weasley twins.
"We were the same characters but obviously we were able to play them in a different light, in like a more serious side," James Phelps said. "So they aren't always joking around now, so that was very cool from an actor's point of view. And like how Oliver was saying, Part 2 is essentially, the caption says, 'It all ends here.' And that's true, more so for some characters than others. It's gonna be a real thing."
