Emma Watson graces the cover of “W” magazine

The June/July 2013 issue of W magazine has just been released with a stunning photograph of Emma Watson on the cover. More images from the W shoot can be found inside, and you can view them in the magazine’s online gallery. The magazine also features an interview with Emma, where she discusses her new film The Bling Ring, her recent move to America, and the trials of growing up in the spotlight.

Among other topics Emma discusses her stubborn denial of fame and her surprising celebrity crush:

When did you realize you were famous?

I lived in denial for as long as I possibly could. Until the age of 18, I would take the Oxford Tube, which is a public bus. Then it got to the point where the fact that I was on the bus would spread from one end to the other. I’d think, Why am I doing this to myself? Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.

Do you have a Hollywood crush?

My cinematic crush has been pretty much the same since I was 12: Kevin Costner. I met him in an elevator the other day, and I couldn’t even speak. He said hello, because he is lovely like that, and I couldn’t say anything back.
