LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ron Weasley who?
Emma Watson has revealed she once harbored feelings for one of her “Harry Potter” franchise stars — and the object of her former on-set affection may surprise fans of the wizardry films!
“For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton,” Emma told Seventeen magazine in an interview for their latest issue. “He was my first crush. He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.”
While the 21-year-old actress admitted she fancied the Draco Malfoy actor, Emma said she couldn’t fathom developing feelings for a person she’s never met.
“I’ve never understood having crushes on people who you don’t know in real life. I only crush on people I meet,” she told the mag.
“I mean, I can appreciate that someone is good-looking, obviously,” the actress continued. “But I don’t intend to fantasize about people I don’t know!”
Catch the full interview with Emma when Seventeen hits newsstands on Sunday.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” — the eighth and final installment of the “Harry Potter” franchise — opens in theaters on July 15.
