Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Emma: I had no idea, and please excuse me, that you guys [Americans] call a condom a rubber! My version of a rubber is like an eraser. So I've done that. I've very loudly asked for a rubber. People have given me strange looks.

    • Emma: There are some actresses who don't know about things like doing their own laundry and getting a bus. I'm not going to be like that.

    • Emma: (on other roles apart from "Harry Potter") Now that I've played the snotty, bossy, posh Hermione Granger, I'd like to play some American high school girl. I want to play something totally different. I want to play every kind of character and every point of view, but I'm probably going to be playing Hermione for a while.

    • Emma: (on her fortune from the "Harry Potter" franchise) The wealth side of it hasn't hit me yet because I have no need for money in my life. My life will not be motivated by money. I will never do a film because they're going to pay me a certain amount of money. It's liberating. It means I can hopefully make great choices.

    • Emma: (On romance on set of the "Harry Potter" movies between herself, Daniel Radcliffe & Rupert Grint) It's hard to imagine a place with less romance, really. I mean when we were all turning thirteen, fourteen, there was a bit of that going on. We all fancied the hell out of each other. But no, not anymore.

    • Emma: Let's be honest: I have enough money never to have to work again, but I would never want that. Learning keeps me motivated.

    • Emma: (on experimenting like normal teenagers) You are careful not to do it in the public eye. You have your first cigarette or first glass of alcohol in a safe environment with your close friends - or you could be foolish and choose to do it in a London nightclub.

    • Emma: (on her name in the "Harry Potter" movies) This REALLY bugs me! I go around saying, 'Everyone repeat it with me: Her-MY-oh-nee', because everyone says Her-my-WON, Her-my-OWN.

    • Emma: (on people recognizing her from the "Harry Potter" movies) They walk past and go 'Wingardium Leviosa' for the billionth time that day, and I go aaagggghhhhhh!... But apart from that most people are really nice about it.

    • Emma: It was unbelievable seeing me as an action figure! In a few months, toddlers all around the country will be biting my head off!
