Emma Watson's Idea of Sexy: Less Is More

Emma Watson's Idea of Sexy: Less Is More

Emma Watson took time out from filming part one of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to dish on everything from her parents to her college dreams to The Daily Mail.

Here’s what the 18-year-old actress said:

On her idea of sexy: “Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt… have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.”

On her latest birthday: “It was pretty tough turning 18. I realized that overnight I’d become fair game. I had a party in town and the pavements were just knee-deep with photographers trying to get a shot of me looking drunk, which wasn’t going to happen. I don’t have to drink to have a good time. The sickest part was when one photographer lay down on the floor to get a shot up my skirt.”

On her celebrity status: “I don’t consider myself to be a celebrity. I don’t fit that mold. I worry that people have expectations of me being someone I’m not. I’m just finding myself and trying to live as normally as possible and be as normal as possible. I’ve never seen a ‘good behavior’ clause (she refers to her reported Warner contract) — I honestly think that’s a myth — but I actually wouldn’t ever need one. It’s just not necessary. I’m not tempted by parties or drugs. I don’t actually like being drunk, particularly in public. But I do understand why people get sucked into a party lifestyle. I can see how it happens so I’d never criticize someone who gets into all that. It can get pretty tough. But you have choices in life. If I want to lead as private and as normal a life as possible I just can’t go there. So I don’t.”

    Brains, beauty, and talent…Emma is my kinda girl!!! But whether she likes it or not, she IS sexy and WAY hot! Girlfriend’s got it goin on and just needs to deal with it…but the paps were way over the line with the crotch-shot at her 18th birthday party. That was just low-class.

  • Kris

    it’s so refreshing to see such a young beautiful talented and SMART girl speak her mind.. we all know we don’t get a lot of that in hollywood.
    her kristen stewart and dakota fanning are my favs :)

  • harry potter

    damn, no Britney Spears 2 ?

    just another boring British celeb – great, all we need.

  • ashley

    major props to emma! congrats on being such a great role model to people like myself. she’s going to go far in like with an attitude like that. it’s so great that hollywood is finally recognizing stars like her, kristen stewart, etc. this is what people want to see.

  • vanessa

    she’s a phenomenal actress!
    and seems like an overall great role model.
    love her in harry potter!!!

  • Michelle

    Eww that’s sickening what that perverted photographer was trying to do. But I still look up to her as a role model and I’m such a fan of hers because of how she stays grounded. Brains, beauty, and charm…the 3 qualities I could possess at once.

  • naty

    she is beautiful, smart and classy!
    i wish other “it girls” would look up to emma!
    can’t wait to see the new hp movie!

  • riana

  • scorpius07

    Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly love her any more. She’s got a great career ahead of her, with her talent and that good (not to mention, gorgeous) head on her shoulders. I wish her luck with the rest of the Potter movies and any future endeavors to break out of the Hermione mould.

    god, i don’t like it when people say she’s “boring” just cuz she doesn’t drink, smoke, party, does weird videos on youtube, or do crazy stuff! hollywood needs more role models like her.

    she is a fantastic person and very down to earth. :D props to emma and her smart mind.
