Emma Watson Talks First Kiss Fear, Envy of Other Actresses in ‘Elle’


Emma Watson is the fashion muse for Elle magazine’s April issue as she effortlessly rocks a denim Balmain jumpsuit with a low, unbuttoned v-neck.

In the interview, the 23-year-old discusses the balancing act between her fictional characters and her personal life to ensure the two don’t crossover.

“I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me,” reveals Emma. “That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”

The actress, who is known for her blockbuster role as Hermoine Granger in the Harry Potter movie franchise, also dishes about coming of age while humbly gushing over young starlets who have evolved.

“There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being,” she gushes. “And I’m so jealous!”

Elle‘s fashion spread containing the full interview hits newsstands on Tuesday, March 25. Check out the photos from her shoot with photographer Carter Smith below:
