Emma Watson says *Harry Potter, it's not Twilight, you know; we're not selling sex*

Monsterandcritics.com reports:

"British actress Emma Watson has said Harry Potter is “not selling sex” like the popular vampire film saga Twilight.

The 20-year-old star made the comment while talking about what it was like to film the kiss between her character, Hermione Granger and her co-star Rupert Grint's character, Ron Weasley.
Watson told Empire magazine: 'The kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it has been building up for eights years now.'

She added: 'And Harry Potter, it's not Twilight, you know; we're not selling sex, so when there is any hint of that, everybody gets terribly excited.'

Watson then revealed the kissing scene was 'horribly awkward' and that she couldn't stop laughing with 22-year-old Grint.

She said: 'Before we did it, we turned to each other and were like, 'God, this is going to be awful isn't it? But hopefully it will look good.''

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is due out later this year."

Um, I have bit of a issue with that statement.... first off, Twilight is actually NOT selling sex but quite the opposite. What Twilight and Stephanie Meyer's brought home was the whole concept of waiting until you fall in love and get married before you had sex. To take it a step futher, the sex in Twilight was meant to paint the picture of love, marriage and then children. I am sure if they wrote the Harry Potter books of all the characters in the future, there would be sex. It is the natural course of adulthood.

yeah well unlike you,some people just can't think before they talk. just because she's part of another film,doesn't mean she has to feel this hate for other successful movies.i don't understand why she mentioned twilight if,after all,the interviewer didn't talk about it or ask her about it. i like harry potter, but this crazy comments just make me feel sick. and by the way,did you ever hear a twilight actor say something bad or just something about harry potter?that's the difference between smart and..well..not so smart ;)

Oh my god, she sounds like an extremely small-minded person. She's apparently intimidated by the goodness and beauty of the story. Twilight is NOT selling sex! hollywood can make all the s*** up they want about it but we all know here (and we SHOULD know here) that Twilight is a beautiful beautiful love story about self-sacrifical love. It's about family..about the Cullens. About making the right choices and it gives the message that no matter WHAT...love and goodness can overcome ANYTHING. She has no damn right to say this crap, I don't care if she's a huge star. She has no right. She is jealous and intimidated by everything that Twilight has become. She obviously can't handle it and she obviously has NO idea what the hell she's talking about EVEN though she read the books. She's a harry potter star..she's stuck in a ditch.

Umm..I don't know about you EMMA....but it's pretty darn evident that Edward and Bella are RESISTING sex practically throughout the whole story UNTIL THEY GET MARRIED WHICH IS THE WAY IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE. That's not SELLING sex..that's TEACHING the crazy kids of this generation how to resist it. HOLLYWOOD is the one that's trying to make it like Twilight is all about sex...because Hollywood can't handle it because that's what THEY'RE about and they don't know what the freak to do with Twilight. I see it all! And Emma is just one of them.

This girl needs to reread the books. And she shouldn't be comparing it either. Pass on the question if she has too.
What SEX IS SHE FUC*ING TALKING ABOUT ? The books are very sensual and beautiful but IT'S NOT SELLING SEX ! And yes the boys don't have shirts but it's part of the story. Taylor does play Jacob weirdly and too sexually at times but other then that the story is very pure.

Yes Stephenie Meyer went into this selling SEX. WHATEVER EMMA. LIKE HER but she's got it twisted.

And Twilight isn't sex and everyone who's read the books KNOWS THAT AND it's a shame people try to sexualize it when it's a beautiful love story that doesn't need that crap. When I sexually I mean one or two scenes were he takes his shirt off and it looks weird and sexually driven. And they way he walks around at times lol ...

She needs to shut up . F****** harry potter sucked monkey balls .. not only sucked but there are too many damn books.

Word of advice to all dear fellow Twilighters: This is obviously a very stupid comment done by a naive spoiled brat. Let's not get worked up over this and start spreading hate and anger, thus go against the lesson we all learn from our beloved serise: Love conquers all. Leave the fight to snotty witches.

I've heard some bad things about Emma Watson, like refusing to sign for fans, etc and just acting plain rude. I never really thought much of those kind of comments though, but if this interview is true then wow she IS pretty rude. Maybe a little jealous or intimidated of another series becoming as popular or even more popular than Harry potter? I love harry potter but I'm sick of people comparing it to twilight all the time. In my opinion, so far the chemistry in harry potter has sucked. Harry and Ginny together...really? o_O I've always hated them as a couple. But apart from the romance, HP is awesome.
