Emma Watson jokes about on-set hook-ups: ‘they are a goldmine!’


Emma Watson has problems picking up men. The Harry Potter star claims that she’s too famous and rich, and her success intimidates normal guys her age. It sounds like a nice problem to have. She also calls being on the set of the Harry Potter films “a goldmine”, which I suppose means that she’s game for a lot of on-set hook-ups. Lord, I hope she was joking. She’s only eighteen! The Daily Telegraph has more:

While winning a starring role in the Harry Potter films has brought Emma Watson worldwide fame and riches beyond her wildest dreams, the actress says it has played havoc with her love life.

“Finding someone that you like, or who likes you, is always difficult at my age,” says Emma, who turns 19 next month. “But being famous complicates things much more. I suppose that some boys feel a bit intimidated by me and stay on their guard.”

Emma is no doubt relieved that filming has begun on the seventh and final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as she jokes: “It’s easier to pull on film sets. They are a goldmine!”

The actress, who plays the brainy Hermione Granger, is currently on a gap year after she gained straight As in her A-levels at Headington School, in Oxford, last summer.

She says she has been enjoying life since she celebrated her 18th birthday. “I’ve got my driving licence and bought myself a car, a grey Toyota Prius,” she says. “And now I can drink alcohol! I feel more free to do what I want to do, and I suppose that I have to be more responsible for myself. That’s a big change.”

I want Emma and Rupert Grint to hook-up. I think they would be really lovely together, the cute ginger boy and the cute brainy brunette. Adorable. I’ve given up on Emma and Daniel Radcliffe. They seem to have a relationship that borders on brother-sister/gay guy-straight girlfriend. I’m not saying Daniel Radcliffe is gay, but I am saying Daniel and Emma really don’t seem to have anything in the way of sexual chemistry, for whatever reason.

Emma seems like a smart girl, and I really hope she doesn’t end up like, say, Lindsay Lohan. Emma, to her credit, seems to have found a pretty good work-fun balance in her life, and I hope she continues with her education.

    Why is everyone worrying about Emma and who she is hooking up with?

    Emma is a hottie and will have no problem moving forward in life with a man when she is ready. Maybe all the younger men she has met to this point are intimidated by her. However she seems frustrated at this time because she has had to lead a somewhat sheltered life in the HP series which has limited her pool of men that she has met to this point.

    She is English and has said many times in interviews she will finish college before doing more movies after HP. So the reference that she could somehow end up as the next Lindsey Lohan is unwarranted.

    When she is finished with the HP movies and out of the spotlight I’m sure she will find a mature man that can handle the success she has had in life.

    Lindsay breeze-brain burnt-out tramp compared to brainy, classy Emma? What? You must be joking. I’m so happy for this little actress and how she is getting her education. Lindsay is hard to take seriously at ALL as an actress.

    Don’t worry. Emma will be fine.

    And as far as Dan, I’m pretty sure the two of them went out when they were younger, around Prisoner of Azkabanish.

    Although that kind of comment is usually made when the girl’s attitude is what turns off guys, not the fame.

    I say she needs to hook up with Robert Pattinson. She’ll clean him up quite nicely. 🙂

    I have to agree with the other 2. Emma is adorable and I can’t imagine her and Lindsay in the same sentence.

  5. Em says:

    Oh I totally agree with you about Emma and Rupert..I’d love to see them together. Like you..i have given up on her and Dan. They have great chemistry onscreen…and Emma said they used to have crushes on each other. But theyre all still young…who knows what may happen.

  6. spooge says:

    So… she’s been having sex for 5 years already then.

  7. Hpthebest says:

    LOL sorry Kaiser but Dan and Emma went out when they were younger….see the pictures from the Prisioner of Azkaban time in 2004,is sooo obvious.You are shipping Rupert/Emma because you think they are like Ron/Hermione !!shipping FICTIONAL characters,fine but real people is creepy.They are only friends,end of history.

  8. becca says:

    Hpthebest: Aha! Knew it was sometime around there. I think they dated around promoting Chamber of Secrets and right through Prisoner of Azkaban promoting. Emma admitted on a talk show (I think it was Rosie when it still aired), that there ARE two cast members going out, and it’s not her and Rupert.

    Now who does that leave I wonder? lol. But they haven’t been with each other in a long time. They’re just friends now.

  9. MN Girl says:

    Not that I think Miley Cyrus is anywhere in the same league as Emma by a long shot, but I can’t help but make the comparison: Miley, the whiny brat wants a flashy car. Emma, the intelligent and mature one, bought a Prius. That right there says how much more mature Emma is. Good for her! Growing up is rough, let alone in Harry Potter like she has. I’m glad she’s taking the road she has in life. Go Emma!!

  10. ellen says:

    i don’t agree.dan and emma’ chemistry perfect.therefor more people thinks they are date.they looks great than rupert/emma or dan/bonnie

  11. Hil says:

    Did anyone else notice (what looks like pen ink to me) marks on her chest? Anyone know what it says?

  12. Nick says:

    Haha Hil I noticed that also, wierd… And this girl just gets better looking everyday! Can’t wait for new Harry Potter!

  13. bb says:

    dan and emma is more popular than rupert and emma…..plus, the chemistry is seen by most of the people….that’s pretty apparent everyone of us know..

  14. heh-heh says:

    This girl is proof that “cute” can triumph over hot. She’s clearly got a handle on her career in spite of the tremendous hype surrounding the Harry Potter franchise.

    We should remember that next time Lindsay goes on the cover of People to complain about the pressures of fame.
