Emma Watson hasn’t just been posing for pretty pictures lately, the Harry Potter star has also been dishing out some pretty great interviews too. First we learned that she had no clue just how much money she was worth, and now we’re finding out even more about one of our favorite stylish celebs.
In an interview with The Sun, Emma explains she regrets being uptight in her teens, saying: “I wish I’d done more naughty things.” That’s probably our favorite quote of the entire article because doesn’t every college sophomore feel that way? The 20-year-old has plenty of time to sow her wild oats, but we have a feeling she’ll do it with characteristic class.
Says the unattached coed:
In terms of men I fancy, I think the actor James Franco is gorgeous. But I find it odd to be described as a sex symbol myself. I mean – really? But of course it’s flattering. At the moment I’m just happy to be single. I want to live life to the full. But I’m more grown up and confident now. I’m ready to take more risks. I feel less girlish than ever. Fun is something I’ve undervalued in the last ten years. I never made time for it. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I have to learn to be good at having fun.
But what does she think of love?
I’m very romantic and of course I want to be in love. I’ve been in love once in my life, but it was complicated. I can’t tell you who it was because it wouldn’t be fair to any others. But I can say I’ve never had my heart broken.
We have a hard time believing this, but Emma claims dudes just aren’t that into her:
I like men with quick wit, good conversation and a great sense of humour. I love banter. I want a man to like me for me – I want him to be authentic. But men don’t really ask me out. And I don’t get marriage proposals any more either. It’s not happening there!
And it looks like Emma hasn’t hit the sophomore slump at Brown:
My best friend at Brown has never seen a Harry Potter movie or read the books. And one guy I dated didn’t know anything about the films, much less that I was one of the stars, which I found hilarious. Being at Brown has totally taken me out of my comfort zone. I’m so proud that I went to a different country to study and really spread my wings.
Now, the $32 million question: what’s next?
As far as the future goes, I want to keep acting. I love singing and so would love to do a musical. I want to travel and become fluent in French. I want to write a novel. I also want to learn to play the mandolin. I have acting projects coming up and I’m in a fantastic position right now. I realize I’m a pretty lucky person and I’m determined to make the most of — but also to take a few chances if I can.
Whatever it is she does, we’re certainly excited to see what it is!
