Emma Watson: “Harry Potter is not selling sex like Twilight”

HollywoodNews.com: British actress Emma Watson has said ‘Harry Potter’ is “not selling sex” like the popular vampire film saga ‘Twilight.’

The 20-year-old star made the comment while talking about what it was like to film the kiss between her character, Hermione Granger and her co-star Rupert Grint’s character, Ron Weasley.

Watson told Empire magazine: “The kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it has been building up for eights years now.”

She added: “And Harry Potter, it’s not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex, so when there is any hint of that, everybody gets terribly excited.”

Watson then revealed the kissing scene was “horribly awkward” and that she couldn’t stop laughing with 22-year-old Grint.

She said: “Before we did it, we turned to each other and were like, ‘God, this is going to be awful isn’t it?’ But hopefully it will look good.'”

‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1’ is due out later this year.

    Before the rabid Twilight fans come here and post massive rubbish, she isn’t talking about sex literally, but of the really romantic steamy love scenes. And that since HP doesn’t have that, when they do show that, fans get excited.

    She said times ago that she supports the Twilight saga since her past friend and co-star stars in it.

    She’s absolutely right.
    Twilight may not be exclusively about sex but it is a very sexy book that does have a sex scene in Breaking Dawn; mind you, after Bella agreed to marry Edward just to have sex.
    Harry Potter is not about the sex, it’s about an adventure and action and love.

    I OFFICIALLY LOVE EMMA WATSON! Twilight sells only sex and it STILL hasn’t beat Harry Potter box office numbers, even in the states! Harry Potter is pure action/adventure. It amuses me when the Twilight actors say that they’re movies are all action… HAHA! TEAM EMMA/HERMIONE!!!!!
