Tom Felton talks seeing Emma Watson recently and recalls her slapping him

 


[Version fran├žaise]










Tom is covering the magazine Square Mile and gave an interview where he mentioned Emma a few times.

"I got the best of both worlds. I take the Tube, I take the bus, I walk my dog in the park. I saw Emma the other night – she looks exactly the same as she did ten years ago. It’s almost impossible for her to not be spotted. I get a lot of people whispering, 'is that whatshisname?'"

"I had already been to the first year of secondary school before I was cast [in Harry Potter] so I had already claimed my degenerate group of friends. And they cared as little then as they do now. I always feel for Emma and Daniel. They started when they were nine, 10. That’s a big difference, man."

"No one in my school seemed to care, to be honest. I didn’t do any of the press junketing. The poster kids, Daniel, Rupert and Emma, they took all of that weight. Back in the first film or the second film it wasn’t so bad but by the time of the third and fourth, they had a lot of people looking at them. I wasn’t peddled around the world."

"It got to a point where they couldn't fly Daniel, Rupert and Emma around the whole world, they had to find some other people to step in. Going to Japan, seeing people at the airport – it was like, 'you've got to be kidding me. No way!'"

And lastly, the longest recollection of the slap before the slap:

He took longer to bond with Watson, for no other reason than a three-year age difference is nothing in your 30s but a fair amount in your teens. Of course, in the third film the pair shared one of the series’ most iconic scenes: when a furious Hermoine punches Malfoy in the face. 

Felton chuckles when I bring it up. "In the books, I believe it’s a slap," he says a little ruefully. Anyway, I’ll let the injured party tell the story. Him and Watson are playing ping pong in the holding tent while they film Chamber of Secrets… 

"Emma’s very good at ping pong. I stopped her mid-game and said, 'You know you have to slap me in the next film?' She's like, 'Oh right, OK.' I was really into my Jackie Chan at the time; I was developing this idea of how the stunt should look. Cameras behind. 'You slap miles away from me, and I sort of react: 'Ow!' Come on, let's do it. Let’s get ready for the slap. How are you going to do it?'

"She simply put the paddle down and smacked me across the face. Pretty freaking hard! And my little 14-year-old self started tearing up a little bit. [Whimpers] 'Yeah, that was a good one.' That was pretty emasculating! I lost all street cred. Down the drain after Hermione beat the shit out of me."

Must admit my first response was 'bloody Tom, will he ever stop talking about Emma & HP?'

But then I read the article and I thought it portrayed him in a good light.
He's obviously very fond of his time on HP and whereas the others have moved on, I think he just enjoys recounting an enjoyable part of his life.
And certainly the article/interview isn't only about HP.

Worth a read IMO before commentating.

Ain't gonna read all that. But whatever it is, happy for him though.

Anonymous said...

maybe he talks about Emma because journalists asks him constantly for her.

yup writers know its easy clickbait to have tom drop Emma name as feltsoners will show up a million times lol

That Deuxmoi reddit users trying to establish the fact that Dan and Emma dated.. What the fuck!

Eden said...

They're not even doing it well by picking 2014 and 2015.

Someone made a comment with 9 points on that on a new HP thread and the source is " Someone saw them"

XD Only people who desperately want it to be true will believe it. After a good dose of denial.

Emma and Dan had one date on valentines day in 2008 i think it was one time thing

https://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00014237.html

Eden said...

That was another sighting with no photos. And Emma was dating Jay at the time.

Anonymous said...

it was just before she met jay and just around when she been linked to that guy from razor light and Frances broeil or whatever his name was she was single in the February of that year and so was dan having just broken up with laura o'tool or something like that.

I think emma and dan did that so emma would stop getting dragged for being seen that razor light guy.

Anonymous said...

wasnt jay barrymore 2009?

I think emma dan had a thing more around 2004 tbh but maybe had flings other times while single

Anonymous said...

August 2008 is when she met Jay it was always weird when she dated a guy so much older while being a teenager still

Eden said...

Jay was with Emma at that Burberry event where she was seen with Razorlight guy. That was February 11, 2008.

Anonymous said...

How her parents banned her from meeting rajor light guy after seeing them one time together is my absolute favorite story about her.

Anonymous said...

you mean Francis boulle ?

he sounded like a jerk who said he didn't want to be known as a guy dating a child star or something flippant like that

Eden said...

"How her parents banned her from meeting rajor light guy after seeing them one time together is my absolute favorite story about her."

That was made up by The Sun or Dailymail or I don't know.

Anonymous said...

Emma parents were not happy about the press Emma got for being seen with Razorlight guy I recall he had drug issues.

so I can see Emma being like "no see im with a good guy like dan!" leave me alone!! now" xd lol

Emma and Dan is so fake lool

They knew each other before but didn't start actually 'dating' until august 2008

hmmm tbh if he was older than her and she was a teenager that was the correct stance. It will always be creepy when a guy in his mid-twenties is dating a teenager imo

if the source is uk tabloid press it probably wrong lol

Francis Boulle has such a Punchable face. Also she clearly has a type Asshole, Rich, well educated, ugly, bad boy. Basically William from Skam Norway lol.
Also Eden you have some brain, I can't even remember what I ate yesterday.

Deux moi is just clout chaser making things up, show anything they said about Emma that turned out real I doubt anyone can.

Anonymous said...

I searched and found the mirror article as the first result(maybe they are the source?) they are not as trash as the sun or daily mail but still not something you should take too seriously

but it does seem odd they would write this article about Emma and Dan in 2008 when the peak of people shipping them was before 2006 when Emma was single and not with Tom Druker yet. Seem a weird time to make something like that up I dunno maybe it was a friendly thing and they were just lonely on valentines day that year.

Deux Moi people is also saying she was with that creep James franco now lol this is just all bad fanfiction now

Anonymous said...

Unless there are pics to prove a person was near the celeb I take Deuxmoi posts mainly as nonsense and even if they have proof with pics I still doubt the things they write about what the celeb said.

They exist to get ad revenue by having people freak about wild gossip and sell merch off the back of it maybe 10% of posts are real or even less imo

Anonymous said...

Deuxmoi reddit is more wild than actual Deuxmoi insta account. Someone asked a person there where did you find it and that person replied " I read it online" . They always act like they have a very high moral compass and judge another person for being slightly unpleasant.

Anonymous said...

Emma and Dan never dated, they just met and were hyped up by the tabloids and Emma & Dan shippers as dating lol, they were more like brother and sister bickered a lot at that point but rarely saw each other after HP ended.

Didn't the original person who started Deuxmoi leave and say it's mostly bullshit now?

2004-2005 Emma and dan def had a thing holding hands at premiers and stuff

Eden What was the source of a quote by Emma that was like "dan is great im a really lucky girl?' like she accidentally confirmed they were dating?? was that a real quote or reddit lying again?

Anonymous said...

if they keep stalking people with sneak pics inside buildings not just out in the street I think celebs will band together and try to take deuxmoi down eventually for defamation or slander or whatever one written word is about lol

"Eden What was the source of a quote by Emma that was like "dan is great im a really lucky girl?' like she accidentally confirmed they were dating?? was that a real quote or reddit lying again?"

I can't remember that quote exactly but it sounds like something she would have said while talking about the kiss in DH1. I'm guessing it was taken out of context.

Anonymous said...

googling that quote takes me to some crazy dan emma shipper site so seems like a bad source lol

I can't stop reading the thread. It is way too entertaining also someone asked about Narnia. Hi everyone. XD

what did they ask about narnia?

Anonymous said...

Dan actually addressed not only the shipping with Emma but the supposed Valentine’s meet up as an example in an interview of the tabloids making stuff up and said they neither of them were within miles of the place they were “seen” let alone together there. He specifically called that “meet up” out. I’ll have to try and find it, I can’t remember if it was print or tv but I laughed out it at the time.

is reddit correct about Emma seeing Cary Fukunaga? she really does have a thing for way older guys if true lol

Yes the person who started deuxmoi from proper sightings and had actual info sold it. It’s just owned by a gossip site now where people send photos.

Dan mainly ignores questions about Emma or just laughs it off. Its tom felton who leans into shipping for headlines

dont think dan ever addressed any specific rumours would just call emma a sister and laugh it off

I’m 100% certain he called it out as an example of the tabloids making stuff up and as said stated that they weren’t within miles of the location and weren’t together. He called out that exact rumour. I can’t find it but I’d put my house on it.

Eden do you have a link to where dan said that? need some less 'trust me bro' style sources here lol

Anonymous said...

Daniel Radcliffe had also mentioned in the interview that between the filming of the third film (Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban) and the fifth film (Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire), they were the only "boys and girls" they knew. This is why they felt attracted towards each other for that brief period of time. But then it "settled down".

Eden said...

I did a quick search for the source when the person first mentioned it but I didn't find anything. I belive them though.

Dan said he would "never date Emma" in an interview when he was like 19 too

most of the time stars don't mention any particular article as it creates an effect of people looking it up and spreading it more better to ignore it or be general in dismissing rumours #streisandeffect

“Most of the time” stars don’t reference specific rumors, but not all the time. I wouldn’t be in any way surprised if Daniel has sometimes referenced a specific rumor and called it out as garbage. He probably didn’t say the specific article or paper like DM or whatever, he prob just mentioned “the Valentine’s Day date was made up…”
He’s a pretty straight talking guy. Emma doesn’t normally address specific rumors but she does sometimes as well.

Anonymous said...

Emma has done it for sure mainly as she is so active on social media (well back in the day) and called out rumours all the time about fake casting and just this year the 'getting married and retired rumour'.

Dan is wise to post like nowhere online and stay away from drama

Anonymous said...

Well there is no proof of anything so whatever

Anonymous said...

I remember dan said it wasn't a date just a couple of friends hanging out and media just exaggerated whenever they see Emma with a male friend and its disgusting that they do that

Anonymous said...

Yes! Dan destroys media treatment of Emma all the time back then and even recently, he was amazing at putting them in their place.

one interviewer said Emma was 'hot' once in a question and dan was like 'you know you're speaking to a fifteen-year-old? want to rethink that question?' or something so badass

This thread has gotten almost double the traffic of the reunion trailer (I know, me included). This is exactly why place like Deuxmoi post this kind of crap.

yeah I saw Reddit user post about something like that but is there any links? i would love too see this

yup tbh we are all playing into media and Felton hands by giving his articles so much discussion and talking about all this shipping people nonsense its why he keeps doing it and media reporting it no cares about actual work of these actors just pointless gossip it seems

Anonymous said...

For Valentine’s day thing Dan didn’t say it wasn’t a date. He said it never happened. they never met at a pub on Valentine’s Day, it was bull

Anonymous said...

There seems to be no proof dan ever said anything about it one way or another tbh

Anonymous said...

I’m in the never happened camp. It was a random rumour, completely made up and no pics, and Dan confirming it never happened. Lots of interviews from back in the day are no longer online

Anonymous said...

dan had a drink with emma and other co stars on various occasions doesnt mean he dated them lol

Anonymous said...

I think it was just something to distract from the Razorlight frontman backlash and it wasn't a real date Dan likes messing with media like that and maybe wanted to help his friend out

Anonymous said...

Eden know all the links in like 5secs mostly lol if dan has discussed this story she would have found by now but honestly, I think there is more chance of seth being a true date than this as of course even in 2008 people will take camera phone pics of hermione and harry potter together lmao

sorry weak English using translator

Anonymous said...

"Dan likes messing with media"

I think it was mainly paps and stuff he would mess with. He would like dress the same a lot and wear the same clothes all the time so paps couldnt prove what day the pics they had og him where from and then they wouldn't make as much money or something? I dunno where i read that though but i hope he did that hahha

Anonymous said...

Well at the end of the day the source is red top UK tabloids so it's worthless with no pics they don't even list a source of who saw them not even the words 'a close friend' or an 'insider' just nothing but the words 'on lookers' pffft

"rise up Emma/Matthew lewis shippers! (there are dozens of us)"

Lol I googled to see if there were Emma/Matthew rumours and there are articles about his "secret crush" on her and Emma said he looked hot in his shirtless photoshoot so there are even more Matt/Emma rumours than Rupert/Emma ones xd

...oh well I'm sure Rupert is actually happy about that and probably hates all this gossip stuff.

Well people keep saying Tom would use the reunion to make a move on Emma but i think Matt would have better luck currently hahaha

Anonymous said...

Yup Rupert made his millions in hp, avoided being dragged in media or any rumours settled down with a family and is still working on projects. So imo he won over most the cast where they are now in their careers/life so anyone mocking the gingers are wrong for sure XD

I knew Toms comments would see a blog post getting the most comments all month again Eden has clearly paid him to start drama so it can hype up the blog traffic ;)

Anonymous said...

Rupert is the most talented and underrated of the trio, he doesn't work as hard as Daniel and doesn't get as much attention as Emma. It's good for him that he can choose his projects as he pleases, and now that Del Toro has taken a shine to him and is raving about him, I'm sure his talent will be appreciated by more major directors.
