    Hermione has left the building!

    In Emma Watson's new movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the 22-year-old starlet proves there's life after Harry Potter.

    "Nobody has ever seen her in this kind of role—and with an American accent," costar Nina Dobrev said at the movie's Toronto International Film Festival premiere, adding, "She finished one chapter of her life, cut off her hair and embraced this new beginning. I think everyone is going to be very pleasantly surprised."

    In the movie adaptation of the coming-of-age novel of the same name, Watson plays a high school senior who befriends a freshman fellow outsider (Logan Lerman).

    Watson, Lerman and costars Mae Whitman and Ezra Miller all stripped down to skimpy clothing for dancing scenes that took place during screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    "It doesn't show but I was absolutely terrified," Watson admitted.

    "I watched her throw down so hard in every capacity," said Miller, who plays an out gay student secretly dating the school's football star (Johnny Simmons). "She can get down—and Wats gets down!"

    Lerman, 20, wasn't exactly keen on strutting out in nothing by a pair of tiny gold underwear.

    "Yeah, that was uncomfortable," he said. "It was one of those things you just try to forget…I just didn't think about and then I just went out there."

    As for the reports that Watson and Simmons dated, Simmons cracked, "Me and Emma Thompson are still dating. It's not a rumor. She's a great lady."
