Which boy was the first person to cast a love spell on an 11-year-old Emma Watson?

The Harry Potter actress and Seventeen cover girl reveals her very first crush in the fashion glossy's August issue.

So was it Daniel Radcliffe or Rupert Grint who had Em's heart?!


Emma's first crush was Tom Felton, who plays Harry, Hermione and Ron's nemesis Draco Malfoy.

"For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton," Hermione Granger's alter ego reveals. "He was my first crush."

Awww, she fell for her onscreen enemy. Too cute!

If you think about it, that totally makes sense. Girls tend to go for the bad boys, right?

But fortunately it didn't seem to create any awkwardness on set.

"He totally knows," Em continues. "We talked about it—we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that's cool."

As for celeb crushes, the 21-year-old says, "I've never understood having crushes on people who you don't know in real life. I only crush on people I meet. I mean, I can appreciate that someone is good-looking, obviously, but I don't intend to fantasize about people I don't know!"

Way to keep it real, Emma.
