emmawatson-marieclaire-frontEmma Watson is all legs and attitude in smoldering photos in the February issue of British Marie Claire. She makes a statement about her sexuality that blasts her child-star image into outer space. Who knew?

Watson, 22, is quickly establishing herself as a leading young Hollywood actress, who has the range and the will to tackle even the most intense movie roles.

Her played a carefree high school girl in her truly dramatic role since Harry Potter, in the coming of age film “Perks of Being a Wall Flower.” It was released nationwide in October.

Emma Watson an Alluring Seductress

Her next release “The Bling Ring,” is about burglars who hit the homes of celebrities; then she’ll appear in “This is the End,” an ensemble comedy with Seth Rogan, James Franco, Jonah Hill and a slew of other stars.

She’ll return to blockbuster film making this year when she shoots “Noah,” a biblical epic about the creation of Noah’s Ark. It stars Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, Douglas Booth, her “Perks” co-star Logan Lerman, and Ray Winstone.

Watson credits her parents for the way she lives and works and admits she can be “a bit OCD” about being perfect. “I’m my own worst critic. I think that’s really hard, but it also spurs me on. I always want to do better. I’m always striving towards the next thing.”muc

She also feels much more comfortable in her own skin, these days. “I think that comes with age, which is nice,” she says.
