Even though Instagram has been there for a while, several celebrities are joining the photo sharing app only recently. Previously, it was FRIENDS actor Jennifer Aniston who broke the Internet by joining and announcing her arrival with a famous selfie. And now, Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint — who joined in November 2020 — has gained more than a million followers, faster than even Aniston and the next contender Sir David Attenborough, a report in The Instyle informs, citing Entertainment Tonight. Apparently, Grint gained one million followers in just four hours and one minute.

On November 10, he had shared shared a photo of himself with his newborn daughter. “Hey Instagram….only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G Grint. Stay safe, Rupert. (sic)” he had captioned.

Later, he had spoken with ET and expressed his surprise. “I don’t believe it. It’s very, very surreal. I never thought I would [join Instagram]. I always said that I wouldn’t, and then I just thought, ‘It’s been such a crazy [time]. So why not?’ It’s insane. I think Wednesday actually broke the internet, personally. She gets the credit.”
