Emma Watson could probably have any guy she wanted — but would you be surprised to know that she’s not in it for the good looks?
The 21-year-old actress recently sat down with The Daily Record and opened up about what kind of guy will win her heart, finding her fashion niche and growing up as Hermione. Check it:
On the guys who catch her eye: “[He'll have] Kindness, good manners, intelligence, confidence … and someone who can make me laugh. Manners are important. The way I was brought up, my dad is very strict and very focused on that, so if I see anyone be rude to anyone else, it’s an immediate turnoff. I can’t bear it. I think being polite is quite key for me. Being kind and being aware of people around you is definitely a big one.”
On her fashion dos and don’ts growing up: “I used to cringe and regret some of the outfits but actually I’m quite proud now that I had fun with it and didn’t always look perfect. I’ve made mistakes but there’s a history, there’s an arc, there’s a learning curve. You can see that I made my own mistakes and learned from them and figured it all out for myself and I enjoyed it. For 12-year-old girls, they [perfect outfits] just don’t exist. You either buy a bridesmaid dress or you improvise.”
On growing out of Hermione and into Emma: “I probably started out more like her and got less like her. I’m very heady and intellectual and we’re very similar in that way – we’re very eager to please and need approval. Not wanting to break the rules was definitely who I was. But I guess I think I’m more of a rounded person than she is. She’s very focused on her academics and I think I’m more creative and have lots of other different interests, whereas she’s very focused on one area.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II opens July 15th.
