Honesty may not always be the best policy when it comes to talking to the press. Emma Watson’s rumored ex Francis Boulle recently chatted with Heat magazine about his breakup with the Harry Potter star, and he may not have portrayed himself in the best light. He said of the split: 

“We had a bit of a thing a while back, but I have always been an ambitious person and I want to achieve my own notoriety for what I’ve done.”

Francis, 22, is a British reality star on Made in Chelsea, and was spotted back in 2008 flirting with the actress at a polo match. He explained why he didn’t continue anything more with the 21-year-old A-lister, saying:

 “That’s why I chose not to pursue it any longer, because I didn’t want to be the boyfriend of some child actress.”

As for their current relationship status, the two seem to only be mere acquaintances at this point. He told Heat, “We do share a lot of mutual friends and our paths cross from time to time. I actually really like Emma.  She’s a really cool person.  She’s a very different person to who she is in the media. That’s what I liked about her – she’s very interesting.”

What do you think of Francis’ comments? Did he say too much?
