“People say Draco is sexier than Harry. Harry is just a nice guy, surrounded by so many strong characters, whereas Draco stands out on his own. And there’s something about the way the Malfoys look. I wouldn’t be worried about playing a bad guy for the rest of my life … Let’s be honest.

“I felt a bit uncomfortable and awkward. It didn’t come naturally at all. My acting tutor said the hardest thing for me was to get angry. I almost broke down in tears when they tried to get me to be angry. I keep that really bottled up somewhere. I feel unleashing it would be the scariest thing and to let myself be powerful, sexy, all those things—it’s scary for me.”
—Emma Watson talks to Harper’s Bazaar UK about how she felt shooting this spread for their August issue headlined “Good Girl, Gone Bad.” Something about this quote, combined with the image of her posing behind the gate, makes me think she’s about to bust out singing that Smashing Pumpkins’ song, “Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage.” Love the hair, though.
