The Hermione Granger of the 'Harry Potter' movie series also confesses that she was worried about her American accent when filming the coming-of-age drama.
Emma Watson apparently doesn't really like to show too much skin in front of the camera. The 22-year-old actress admitted that she was nervous when told to do a dance routine in a skimpy lingerie for her coming-of-age drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower".
"I was very nevous to that stuff," the Paris-born actress shared to E! News about the scene in "Perks" that required her to perform a dance routine from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". She confessed, "It was tough."
Aside from doing the sexy dance, the British beauty opened up that she was worried about speaking in American accent for the first time. "I really wanted to get that right," she stated. "But Logan [Lerman] and Ezra [Miller] were very instructive. If I ever said anything that sounded weird, they were like, 'That's not right!' and we would fix it."
The Hermione Granger of the "Harry Potter" film franchise went on sharing that "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is a perfect movie for her transition from the famous wizard boy series. "I think Harry Potter fans will love it because it has so much heart, like the Harry Potter stories do," she said.
"I feel like it's perfect transition from Harry Potter to kind of more adolescent movie," the actress who will next be seen in "The Bling Ring" continued. "It's a little bit of an older tone. It's darker."
Watson's co-star Johnny Simmons, who was once rumored to be dating her, added that the movie might never have been made without the British actress attached to it. "She read the book and became obsessed with it," he reasoned. "She heard they were making the movie and approached them about it. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her."
"Perks of Being a Wallflower" is based on a 1999 novel by Stephen Chbosky, who also directs the movie. The story follows an introverted high school freshman named Charlie who slowly comes out of his shell thanks to his new friends, Sam and Patrick. He is introduced to the awkward times of adolescence, including drug use and sexuality.
Watson stars as Sam, while Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller play Charlie and Patrick respectively. They are joined by Nina Dobrev, Paul Rudd and Mae Whitman. The drama is slated for a September 14 release in the Unites States.
