”Harry Potter” star Emma Watson has apparently slammed the popular ”Twilight” series for selling sex.
The 22-year-old actress, who reprises her role as Hermione in the upcoming ”Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part I, condemned the rival franchise during a conference call with journalists.
“This kiss between Hermione and Ron [Weasley played by co-star Rupert Grint] is highly anticipated, it”s been building up for eight films now,” the New York Daily News quoted her as telling OK Magazine.
“And Harry Potter is not ”Twilight,” you know”. We”re not selling sex,” she added.
Watson had been addressing the long-gestating romance between Hermione and Ron, leading up to a kiss.
Although it is a fan favourite from the book, Watson admitted it was uncomfortable for her and Grint to shoot.
“In fact, it was horribly awkward; we couldn”t stop laughing,” she said.
