Emma Watson Disses Twilight for ‘Selling Sex’
Hopefully Emma Watson has a magic spell in her arsenal to ward off enraged Twi-hards.
Watson—who plays Hermione Granger in the hugely successful Harry Potter movie series—recently lambasted the vampire-centric Twilight movie series for concentrating too much on sex.
Discussing her smooching scene with Ron Weasley (as portrayed by Rupert Grint) in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Watson opined,
“This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it’s been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex. So, whenever there is any hint of that, everybody gets terribly excited. In fact, it was horribly awkward; we couldn’t stop laughing.”
If that’s the case, Watson might want to skip the upcoming Twilight installment Breaking Dawn, because word is it’ll be the sexiest Twilight flick to date.
Does Watson have a point? Is the Twilight series too focused on sex, or is she just jealous because she doesn’t get to film a makeout scene with Robert Pattinson? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
