Emma Watson & Daniel Radcliffe Shared 'Relationship Advice' on 'Potter' Set
Harry Potter stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe grew up together on the wizard set, and they both opened up to Vogue Magazine about their super close friendship while at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Emma disclosed that she saw Daniel as the leader of the film, telling the publication:
"He understood what his role was, not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him."Daniel, however, described his friendship with the actress as "very much brother and sister," revealing that at times they even came to each other with matters of the heart.
"We would also help each other with relationship advice; particularly funny were the moments when we would help each other compose texts to the most recent flames in either of our lives (not too flirty, but not too subtle either!). It was certainly a case of the blind leading the blind, but it was extremely funny.”He added, “I think it’s fair to say that Emma and I were the two most opinionated members of the young cast."
Aside from taking relationship tips from Daniel, the former Brown University student told Vogue that she also got some advice from James Franco on how to be both a student and celebrity. "It was such a relief to speak to someone who is trying to do the same thing I’m doing. I talked to him about juggling studying and making films and going backward and forward. He’s not afraid or limited by what he fears people will say about it."
Emma returns to the big screen with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on July 15. In the meantime, she has been spotted in Pennsylvania filming her new movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Her Vogue Magazine cover hits newsstands Tuesday, June 21.
