"I do like guys who are into sports and speak different languages," the 17-year-old says
Harry Potter star Emma Watson has revealed what she likes in boys – and wizardry is not a requirement.
“I am not really into any particular type, but I do like guys who are into sports and love it when they speak two or three different languages,” the actress, 17, tells the July issue of Britain’s Tatler magazine. “Yeah, that really does it for me.”
Watson has played Hermione Granger in five Potter films, and will reprise her role in the sixth, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, next year. (She tells Tatler that although she hasn’t signed a contract for the film, “I definitely intend to do it.”)
But despite the years she’s spent filming, not to mention the fame – which, she says, “really started to go wild” after the second film – she’s taken pains to keep up with her school work. Now studying English literature, geography and art history (which she loves), she says her plan is to eventually study philosophy at Cambridge.
She also says that after the Potter series ends, she’s not sure what will happen with her career: “There is no rule book for the career I am in. None of my family has ever experienced it. No one tells you how to handle fame or walk down the red carpet or answer questions about yourself. I just hope I get it right. … I know I’ve been very lucky.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the series by J.K. Rowling, will arrive in July, as will the fifth movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
