Harry Potter actress Emma Watson made a dig about Twilight.

When asked about her kiss with cos-at Rupert Grint (played by Ron Weasley), Emma said: “This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it’s been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex.”

“So, whenever there is any hint of that, everybody gets terribly excited. In fact, it was horribly awkward; we couldn’t stop laughing.”

Has Emma made a mistake making a dig about a franchise that rivals the one she is part of?
