As Emma Watson searches for her real-life Harry Potter, she's turning to co-stars for advice.
"If I'm having boy troubles, I'll occasionally go and chat to Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint and say, 'What is going on here? I don't understand," Watson, 17, recently said at a London press conference for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which opens Tuesday in Britain and on July 11 in the U.S.
"Don't ask her what she means by boy troubles," added Radcliffe as People magazine reported the three movie stars a laugh.
When not discussing her love life, Watson explained why she took much longer than Radcliffe and Grint to join up for the final two Harry Potter films. And - take note, Hayden Panettiere - they were for legitimate, responsible reasons.
"I didn't sign the contract immediately because I needed some time to figure out the logistics of combining making a Harry Potter film â€" making two more Harry Potter films â€" and combining that with my school timetable," Watson said, adding that she found it "quite frustrating and upsetting all the insinuations that were made about why I was holding off."
Turns out the actress just wants to go to college, where she hopes to study English literature, geography, and history of art. That's right, her plans don't include snorting cocaine or going to clubs every night like young American stars named Lindsay Lohan.
Grint already has left school and Radcliffe studies with private tutors.
Meanwhile, J.K. Rowling's publisher, Scholastic, Inc., announced Monday that the author's seventh and final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in anticipation of its July 21 publication date, has set a record as Amazon.com's most pre-ordered product, with nearly 1.6 million copies bought around the world.
But if you believe the Harry Potter spoilers we posted earlier were more than mere celebrity gossip, then there's no need to even buy the book. You already know how it ends.
