Not all 17-year old actresses are like Hayden Panettiere.

Many are still searching for their very own Stephen Colletti, a boyfriend with whom they can play tonsil hockey throughout every Shrek showing.

Count Emma Watson among those looking. But at least the Harry Potter star knows what she wants in a potential mate.

“I am not really into any particular type, but I do like guys who are into sports and love it when they speak two or three different languages,” the actress tells the July issue of Britain’s Tatler magazine.

“Yeah, that really does it for me.”

We can imagine high school seniors around the country now brushing up on their French and Spanish like Britney Spears brushing up on her bikini body.

Watson has played Hermione Granger in five Potter films, and will reprise her role in the sixth, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, next year.

However, despite the years she’s spent filming, not to mention the fame — which, she says, “really started to go wild” after the second film — she’s taken pains to keep up with her school work. Now studying English literature, geography and art history (which she loves), Watson says her plan is to eventually study philosophy at Cambridge.

Maybe she can delve into the morality of Boston fans taunting Alex Rodriguez over his affair with Joslyn Noel Morse. Or Plato’s allegory of the cave.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the series by J.K. Rowling, will arrive in July, as will the fifth movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
