Single: Emma Watson, who looked stunning in a green Marchesa dress at the MTV Movie Awards, says her fame intimidates men
With an enviable figure, a successful career and £20million in the bank, Emma Watson might expect to have would-be boyfriends queueing around the block.
Yet the 21-year-old Harry Potter star is currently unattached.
Miss Watson feels that many men are ‘intimidated’ by her.

And she gave them some simple advice: ‘Be brave.’
The elfin-faced Briton, who is busily promoting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part II), the final instalment in the series, told an interviewer that men rarely pursue her.
‘It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me.
‘Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating.’
She also revealed how some men feel the need to be rude or dismissive simply because she is famous and successful.
‘Sometimes, perhaps because they are intimidated, they feel they have to knock me down,’ she told the Sunday Times Style magazine.

‘They know perfectly well who I am, but say, “How are the Narnia films going?”.’
Billed as the ‘darkest’ Potter film yet, Deathly Hallows II will premiere in London on July 7 and is expected to break box-office records when it is released in cinemas on July 15.
Miss Watson’s character Hermione Granger accompanies Harry on his last attempt to beat Lord Voldemort and his dark forces.
The actress has postponed her studies at Brown University in Rhode Island to focus on her career, and is currently filming The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
