Emma Watson spoke revealed why princesses top wizards any day and how we may be seeing a lot more of her in five years (and we mean a lot more of her).
The “Tale of Despereaux” actress also dishing about the celeb she admires most and declaring that Twilight’s got nothing on the massive “Harry Potter” franchise.
Here are the highlights of her interview:
What’s more fun: playing a wizard or a princess?
She replied: “Oh, a princess, any day! [Laughs] It’s every little girl’s dream! Definitely … especially such a pretty princess!”
Do you have a hard time getting away from just being known as Hermione?She answered: “I think it’ll take a while. I think I need to take on other roles before [laughs] … but obviously doing ‘Tale of Despereaux’ was great, to do something different and play a different role.”
You’ve said you sometimes ask Rupert and Daniel for boy advice — do you all keep in touch in between ‘Potter’ shoots? She revealed: “Yeah, I mean we have each other’s phone numbers and we’ll send a text and see how everything is getting on. It’s a little bit tricky when we’re not shooting, but yeah, we keep in touch.”
Speaking of ‘Equus’ … would you ever take a role that required nudity like that? She continued: “Ooh, never say never. I mean, if I believed in it … I’m not planning on doing it anytime soon, I’ll be honest with you! [Laughs] It really depends on the role and how I felt about it, but I would hope not for another five years, hopefully. [Laughs] I don’t know — we’ll see.”
What’s your take on all the buzz surrounding “Twilight,” which stars “Potter” alum Robert Pattinson? She admitted: “God, it’s massive! I have no idea! I haven’t seen it, so I can’t really comment, but I’m just gob smacked by the amount of hype and publicity that it’s getting. It’s incredible. I mean, I’m so happy for Rob — he must be over the moon. I’m so happy that everything’s so successful for him — it’s amazing.”
And what do you say to all the people calling it the next ‘Harry Potter’? She replied: “I haven’t heard that, to be honest — I mean, that’s quite a big claim to make! [Laughs] ‘Harry Potter’ is pretty massive!”
Who do you think is the better role model: Bella from ‘Twilight’ or Hermione? She said: “Not having seen the film [laughs] … it would be a little unfair to comment, but of course I will say Hermione, because she is just the best.”
Were you disappointed that JK Rowling never delved into Harry and Hermione getting together? She added: “No … I mean, to me it was always obvious that their relationship was purely friends. It always felt to me that she was very mothering towards him. It just wouldn’t be right. And I think that Ron and Hermione are so perfect for each other that I’m not disappointed. [Laughs] It’s meant to be.”
