Join the club, girl!!
The invariably lovely Emma Watson sat down with the incredibly gracious Ellen DeGeneres yesterday and their long and delightful conversation ran the gamut from showbiz all the way to boy gossip!
When Ellen quizzed the young star on what kind of dudes she dug, you won't believe what she revealed about the pitfalls of bagging boys in Britain!
"English guys are very well put together. They dress really well and they are very well mannered. But they are also very restrained. Usually in the whole courting situation, I‘m used to being first of all, ignored for the first two months of the ritual. And then maybe they'll acknowledge my presence. Then, they'll probably be a little mean to me."
How dare they!? Who could ever be mean to Hermione!?
What are their names?! We'll give them dirty looks until they apologize!
Thankfully, she doesn't find us Yanks to be quite so irksome!
Emma spent time at Brown University in Rhode Island and says this with authority:
"Then I arrive in America and I remember a few nights into Brown, this guy just being like, 'I like you. You're great. Let's go on a date. Let's do it.' I'm like, 'I'm sorry, what just happened?' This is like a huge culture shock for me. They're very like open and very straight-forward—but they wear flip-flops and I don't know if I like that."
Between this and the Revolutionary War, we're definitely winning two to nothing!
Well done, candid American guy. Just be sure and ditch those tacky flip-flops next time!
