Emma Watson backhands ‘Twilight’

Emma Watson talked about the highly anticipated kiss between her character Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley in The Deathly Hallows and managed to throw a diss at Twilight.

Watson said the kiss between her and Rupert Grint was exciting and awkward because the Harry Potter franchise isn’t selling sex like the Twilight franchise. Oh, snap. Shit just got real.

“This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it’s been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex.

“So, whenever there is any hint of that, everybody gets terribly excited. In fact, it was horribly awkward; we couldn’t stop laughing.”

I wouldn’t mess with Twilight fans. They’ll cut you with their spiked leather bracelet they bought at Hot Topic. Have you ever had thousands of hormonal pre-teens descend upon you like screaming banshees? It’s scary. You can’t even distract the fat ones by throwing donuts at them.

She didn’t mean that Twilight was all about sex…just that there is more sexual situations in Twilight than in Harry Potter. Fans get excited when there is any form of sexuality in HP because it just doesn’t happen. HP started out geared toward a much younger audience then Twilight, and has grown (as has the sexuality) as the fans have grown. There is sex in Twilight no matter how much people deny….in HP, all fans have is a very loving kiss.

She doesn’t mean that Twilight sells sex, she just mean that if you compare the two, Twilight has sex in it. Harry Potter is more action/adventure, not romance. People get excited to see romance. This kiss between Ron/Hermione has been 10 yrs. in the making. In Twilight, they are practically all over each other by the second movie/book. Give Emma a break, she didn’t mean any harm.

Well, someone’s sounding a leeeeeetle bit defensive. The Twilight Trio seems to have all the movie offers and fan interest, whilst the Potter Trio — *snore*.

While the Potter trio have made great blockbuster and had almost the best marks at their exams, got into collegue and get good movie scripts. What has Taylor Lautner got since Twilight. Oh, yeah, that rom com that didn’t do so great. And KStew? The same kind of films she used to get before Twilight. And Rob? He’s doing good, but he gets papped a,lot, and seems he doesn’t like it a bit.

I’ve read the books, I’ve seen the movies, and I love Rob, but the HP kids are doing better. Way better.

Seriously? Got into “collegue,” huh? How do you even know they had the “best marks at their exams”? Of course they’re going to get into good schools – they’re celebrities. God, you’re an idiot.

School marks aren’t everything. It’s what you do with those marks that’s important. What’s the point of getting good scripts when they are not being turned into movies? You must look at the bigger picture and stop focusing on details.

The people who call Twilight “the new Harry Potter” want their heads looking at. That poorly-written sexist crap doesn’t hold a candle to the warmth and magic of Rowling’s books.

Rock on Emma.

Come on, Twilight isn’t just all about the sex… it’s all about the KINKY sex.

But sadomasochistic pedophilia and bestiality aside, at least movie-goers don’t have to endure the eye-rape of reading Stephenie Meyer’s crappy writing.

Twilight does NOT sell sex! In fact they don’t have sex, until they are married which is a good message! Plus, Harry Potter’s core theme is magic etc and Twilight is Love, so of course they are selling different themes to completely different age groups etc but Twilight is definitely not selling sex!

Um. What? Simply because sex doesn’t occur in the first 3 books does NOT mean that it’s not evident and palpably there.

Obviously you have not closely read the Harry Potter books, because had you, you would know that “magic” is absolutely not their core theme. LOVE is their core theme. Twilight’s core theme is obsessive, maniacal, freak lust and the giving up of one’s entire self to simply be with a guy they’ve known for less than a year. Yeah, that’s a GREAT message for young girls.

I’m not a huge fan of the Twilight books, but I’d rather sell something completely natural – sex – than violence.

I don’t see how anybody couldn’t agree with Emma’s comment. Jacob doesn’t even wear a shirt most of the time. Bella doesn’t agree with waiting for marraige before having sex. Alice arranges a night for Bella and Eddie to have alone. It’s all about sex. Bella macks on Jacob and Eddie listens in. Bad thing for Harry Potter is the utter lameness of Ginny/Harry. Rowling wrote great fantasy but she wrote the worst love story.

Righto; she could have been less abrupt, but she’s great at her age … Harry Potter is still a children’s story and the romance angle is a delicate one in that it would require a sense of innocence to remain consistent. Twilight is innocent, too, in it’s way, but it’s been a more adult version of high school throughout. One, after all, is in an imaginary boarding school of magic with dragons, etc. The other is set in 21st Century Washington State where you can presume 40-80% of the freshmen are having sexual relations toward sex itself. Twilight is selling… Read more »

I think she’s right. Potter is philosphical and without Potter there would be no Twilight. Potter is going to be read for years to come. Twilight is for pathetic little girls anyways. It’s like the Backstreet Boys and spice Girls. Twilight has no good actors, no good special effects, dioalogues, etc. Nothing but preteen girls who made Plain Jane and GayGay and Brooderson famous.
