Harry Potter starlet Emma

  •  Harry Potter  starlet Emma
'Harry Potter' starlet Emma Watson slammed 'Twilight' for dragging out Edward and Bella's sexual tension. "Harry Potter is not 'Twilight,'" she said. "We're not selling sex." Ouch!

    I didn't think I would like Twilight. But after seeing all three I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed the Saga. You cannot compare Twilight to Harry Potter. They are two different types of genre. Though both are fantasy that is where the similarity ends. Some will enjoy and some will not. If not get over it. It won't stop those of us who enjoy it from seeing it.

    when did twilight steal the harry potter spotlight? since the first book came out in 1997 its only ever been getting more popular thats why harry potter has sold more than 400 million books worldwide and twilight only sold a 100.

    um didn't they get married just so they can have sex?

    Oh, you mean act. Yeah, they do that in HP. Twilight tries to do that, but the actors only manage to look constipated.

    I have read both series, and I personally think Harry Potter is better (Twilight was okay too) because it isn't all a love story like Twilight is. Harry Potter has a bit of everything in it! The characters in Harry Potter are more complex and interesting. I can't even describe how much I love Harry's character! When I read the books (which I have multiple times because they are so good) I find I'm able to take what I've read and apply it to real life... Haha, anyways.. I prefer Harry Potter although Twilight isn't horrible.

    No offense but you probably found it boring because there wasn't sexual tension in it and it wasn't classified as "fantasty/romance" Stick to twilight then, theres loads of sexual tension there. Harry potter is fantasy and about facing your fears and problems not about boyfriends and how beautiful they are.

    I would just like to say that Harry Potter and Twilight are both fantastic forms of entertainment. While I'm definitely leaning on the side of Harry Potter, I do think that Twilight has that edge that a lot of teenagers are into. They are two completely different plots. To compare them is unnecessary. Besides, Emma didn't actually say this... the media just twisted her words around. Twilight is not all about sex. Yes, I do think that the writing is a bit poor, but what can you expect? We are reading from the viewpoint of a lovesick teenage girl. I think that Stephanie wanted us to see the story in Bella's point of view, and that she did her absolute best to write in the viewpoint of a teenager. The movies are entertaining as well... though I'm not into all the romance. As for Harry Potter, I think J.K. Rowling incorporated many life lessons into her books, which is why a lot of people from different ages, sexes, and backgrounds read them. To me, Harry Potter is a bit bigger than Twilight because there isn't really a selective, dominant reader (whereas, for Twilight, mostly females read the books). ANYONE CAN READ HARRY POTTER. HP doesn't necessarily focus on just one genre for books. People, don't be confused over what this reporter writes. He/she just wants you to fuss and fight. Go with what you love and if someone doesn't like what you like, then oh well. It's their loss. Side Note: Emma wasn't topless.

    She wasn't topless. And Emma was simply saying that Harry Potter isn't a romance, so "sex" does not play a role in the marketing strategy. Therefore, when there's a kissing scene...everyone gets all excited, because there's not a lot of kissing in HP.

    Oh! So that's why Harry Potter is the most popular book series out there and is known worldwide! Because it's boring, right? You would have to be an idiot to say that Harry Potter is boring.

    Okay enough people! Twilight movie franchise were made just to financed Harry Potter. So be thankful to HarPot! Just Kidding. :) You can't compare this two books/movies they're totally DIFFERENT, get that? So please stop being so retarded and grow up. You can't pleased everyone! I've read and seen both works, Twilight is all about Love and HarPot is full of something that I can't describe(It's just my opinion). Well, you should read the books to understand why this two were really DIFFERENT!! [No offense to Twihards, but most of my friends watched and loved twilight only because of the hotness of RPatt and TayLautner. That's all.]

    don't forget that Robert P. was a wizard (@ HP4, Goblet of Fire) before became a Vampire, i Love both HP & Twilight Series (I have read their Books too) and I watched them all in theaters, Twilight is a love story, for me HP is something more... well just my opinion, but still I love them both

    Opinion of a twilighter and a HP fan

    How can you call it a structured plot they both are fantasy/entertainment. this is being taken way too far. I love Twilight and I love Harry Potter. Since when is selling sex the angle. Teenagers need more than sex. Some of these comments are too ignorant. Twilight is not about sex....and whoever thinks so needs to read the books. And I don't know about self empowerment and that is a strong shoe to say HP fills but to each his own. If thats what you get from it...more power to you! If Twilight was all about sex everyone would have something to say. I am telling you. you cannot please everyone.

  • Isabelle

    Harry Potter has a structured plot and is about self empowerment and STRENGTH. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend. Your arguement is invalid.

    i actually agree with this. i think especially harry potter fans are jealous because of twilight took their spotlight.. Im a fan of both of them, but i srsly soon goin to be team twilight, because hp fans are so rude towards twilight-people. Our vampires sparkle - get over it, and let us like twilight just like we dont cry over why you like harry potter n stuff... Haters saying, twilight is retarted? Isnt hating and "twilight ppl you should die!!"-ing more retarted?

    And honestly, she has nothing against Kristen Stewart. It's the media trying to pit them against each other and hence the gullible fans follow. And she could care less if Rob looks her way. Not everybody is obsessed with him. So, enough with the "Oh, Emma is jealous because he loves Kristen instead of her blah blah blah..." It's childish.

  • Dizzy

    Wow, talking about taking this out of context. In no way as she slamming Twilight. She was merely making an observation. She was comparing how strange it was to do all the kissing scenes in HP because romance is not the main focus of the novels. She was referring to how strange it was to try to bring sensuality into the films. Than she compared it to Twilight, in that Twilight is about the "romance" and sensuality. So, no, she's not jealous. Why would she be jealous when HP is the most successful franchise of all time? Why would she be jealous of the constant badgering and paparazzi loons who follow the Twilight cast around? And, that "topless" scene was added by the producers; Emma didn't suggest it herself (hence, why she made the HP/Twilight comparison). It was done to torment Ron even further. It was tastefully done. You didn't see anything.

    I read all the books of Harry Potter and Twilight and for me, Twilight has a very shallow story. I agree with Emma. Yeah, they've been kissing on the BED when they aren't married yet. For a 17 year old girl to do that? Omy gosh. I don't think it's a very good book. Harry Potter is a very nice to book. The story isn't boring and the world JK Rowling created can't compare to what Meyer wrote. For those who are telling that Harry Potter sucks and Twilight rules, HAVE YOU EVER READ THE BOOKS? I read all of them and my verdict is that TWILIGHT would never ever beat Harry Potter. Harry Potter is too high for Twilight to reach!

    I dont get it why poeple are so against twilight and they had sex after they got married so whats the point of it having been selling sex ?? the breaking dawn book doesnt even give out details about the sex scene.I dont get it why people keep on comparing it with harry potter when in fact non of the two have a clashing mythical creature well except for the warewolf and they didnt focus on that. They are not even comparable. I like the both of the movies/books and i think emma is just doing this for attention because admit it poeple twilight is as or more famous than harry potter. i'm so agree with you

    Emma is completely right. And hello, Twitards, what do Potter fans have to be jealous of? Our series is clearly the better and not just in quantity of sales but also in quality of, I don't know, EVERYTHING. I've read Twilight and I STILL think it sucks. Badly written, barely plotted, non-sex chaste sex fest to ever be vomited onto paper.

It was a fake scene made to torment Ron Weasley, maybe if you ever picked up a Harry Potter book you would know. I've read and seen all the Harry Potters and Twilight so I would know

    * I love Twilight, you just had to be "there" from the beginning to understand Twilight. And to have read the books!! The first movie was in 2008, it's almost 2011, I was 17 & watched it in theaters, if you barely caught on when New Moon was already in theaters than you were too late. Plus we all were younger, and more dense in the head back then. But don't believe what ppl say, author Stephanie Meyer might have had a few spelling errors, but the books are amazing!! * -sydney =} i soo agree with you on this one.. spot on.. people just dont get it
