I like harry potter, but I am not interested in twilight. If people don't want to go see sexual content then don't watch it. For those that like to see it in movies, whatever floats your boat i don't care.

She's allowed to voice her opinions. She's a great role model for young women. Even though she's a millionaire of great fame, she chooses to further her education by going to college. Young girls should be looking up to her for that. Plus, she's a female celebrity who actually wears clothing.

I don't understand the Potter fans vs. Twilight fans fights. I'm a Harry Potter fan and can't stand Twilight for various reasons, so I tend to agree with what Emma said. But I'm not violently opposed to Twilight fans or anything.

I love the twilight books. But I have to kind of agree with Emma on the comments in respect to the twilight movies. The movies are choppy, some times they don't flow properly and they don't tell the whole story. The movies do have a sexy feel, but nobody is having sex. I dunno. lol

I don't know what her comments were, I don't know what her opinions are, but one person's opinion of any one thing makes no difference to me or the way I feel about a topic.

I think that people are making a big deal out of nothing. I think she possibly meant about how all the ladies and girls are oohing and aahing over Jacob with his shirt off. And the whole love triangle with Bella and Jacob and Edward and yadda yadda. Harry Potter isn't really about romance while Twilight is. It's different genre's and she made a statement and everyon is all in a tizzy about it now...

Oh, thank you, Persephone. I had no idea. She's Hermione. I did go to the link, I appreciate it.

That was the big deal? Meh.

It's her opinion.

I've read the Potter books and liked the movies.

No interest in Twilight. (I'm like, over 35, Y'all.) Doesn't it take them, like 4 books to get it on? That's what one of my kids said. She's read them, I haven't. Not much of a romance. I don't think if my life story was in books, it would have taken me FOUR books to get to the Sex!

Now, I'm just being silly.

I don't read or watch Harry Potter and I'm not one for celebrity gossip and what not, so I don't really care what Emma Watson thinks about Twilight, global warming, paint colors, or anything else in the world.

I read Twilight - they're alluring but still lacking, and the movies, in my opinion, were poorly made in some aspects.

Either way - meh.

Have you seen the Rifftrax of Twilight? Now that's a classy, well-made movie

Her comment doesn't sound like much of an insult to me, and doesn't really make sense since there's no sex in Twilight til the last book when Edward and Bella go on their honeymoon.

I think she means that a lot of the attraction about the book is due to lusty tension, whereas Harry Potter has very little in the way of sexuality (besides Harry/Cho Chang's kissing, Hermoine/Ron's kiss, and JK Rowling's statement that Dumbledore is gay). I confess I've never read Twilight, but I know tons of people who have. And that same "lusty tension" vibe of an adolescent, pre-pubescent teen is what I get from all of the Twilight hype

I think her comment just wasn't thought out. Harry Potter and Twilight are geared toward different age groups. Originally when Harry Potter came out it was found in the Young Reader (ages 7-10) or Juvenile (ages 9-13) area of the book store (as the books got longer I think they got moved). The Twilight books can be found in the Teen (13-16 age range). I think if Rowling was going after the Teenage group there would be a lot more sexual tension.

On the other hand, am I the only one who got the tension between Hermoine and Ron in The Goblet of Fire? How about the fact that she went to the dance with "Fly Boy" just to make Ron jelous? They may not be flat out selling sex, but anyone over the age of 13 (and who aren't completely naive) really knows what's going on.

It did - I had no idea what she had said. Sex wasn't what I thought Twilight was selling, I must admit.

I think 7 to 10 is a little young to read Harry Potter for most children. There are some very violent and scary parts in the Harry Potter books. It appears they are also written on a much higher grade level than a Second or Third grader is reading. My youngest read them last year, she was about 9, but she reads at a High School level and there were things I had to explain to her.

My guess is they are more geared towards 11 to 18 and up. (I LOVED them.) Not all books for teens have to be rampant with sexuality. Sometimes a good story and good writing is what it wanted.

Hahahaha, you rock, Emma!

Though i was disappointed with the HP books after book 4, Twilight... is just in it's own little trash bin itself.

HP books 1-4 = good
HP books 5-7 = mediocre
Twilight books = trash

Just my OPINION. Please don't get mad at me about it. I'm sorry but... sparkly vampires? Uh, no. I could probably rewrite the whole series into something better and more realistic. I am almost tempted to.

My daughter read the first few books without much trouble when she was 8. When getting to the later books which were a lot longer I agree that they're a bit too old for kids that age..both with the reading level and also withe the scary parts. My daughter only read books 1-3 (maybe it was book three that she stopped after..). When she saw the 5th and 6th movie she was devestated when she was what happened with them, I can remember reading those books myself and there were extremely sad parts and reading it is even worse than watching it. But, if kids read the books when they first came out then they would be growing with the books basically.. since a book came out what, every year or so? So, if a child started at say age 7-8 they would be something 14-15 when they were done.


Thing is though that I wouldn't let her read twilight. While it's not all about sex it is more sexually based and in the third and fourth book she's talking about wanting to have sex but not being able to since he'd hurt her and all that. My daughter at 9 doesn't really need to hear about teenagers having sex or wanting to.

I have no idea what she said, but I like the Harry Potter movies... I can't stand Twilight! Well to be fair, I only saw the first Twilight but it was clearly not for me.

I started reading Harry Potter in grade 2 I think, and grew up with them. I think that the first 2 or 3 are fine for younger kids but they definitely started getting darker over time. I read Twilight when I was about 14. I feel like the later Harry Potter books and the Twilight books are geared towards the same age group, but Harry Potter is more focused on the adventure/plot and Twilight is more focused on the romance.

That's what I was trying to say. When the first few HP books came out they were found in the younger readers sections of the book stores. I also recall putting them in the same section of the library I voulunteered at. As the books got longer and more involved they moved up the age scale. However, from my understanding, teens were the demographic Twilight was always going after....Anyone ever noticed the merchandise for the two? Bertie Botts jelly beans and plastic wands vs. cullen crest jewelry and perfume?

Twilight is a bane on humanity, much like jersey shore and the new MTV.

Spot on. There was that quote by Futral "Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity, Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend." That's some truth right there, buddy.

I will never understand the feuding between fanatics. I liked both HP and Twilight, for different reasons. I do have to say that the reason there's more focus on sex in Twilight is because it's aimed at and about a different age group. HP starts out following 11 year olds. Twilight is following high school seniors (Bella is 17), which is a more appropriate age for sex and serious relationships to be happening.

I don't really think Emma's comment meant anything more than what she said. The media is just attempting to perpetuate the feud between the two series to create more publicity and drama. As usual.
