London: `Harry Potter` star Emma Watson admits she was scared about kissing Rupert Grint in the film and had to remind herself of her job as an actress.

The 21-year-old beauty had to lock lips with the actor and her fellow co-star Daniel Radcliffe in the movies.

She admits it was harder with Rupert, reported Femalefirst.

"I just had to remind myself I am an actress, I am Hermionie, this is a role but it was really hard. Dan and I could sort of have a laugh about it. Whereas Rupert`s a bit more quiet so I didn`t really know what he was thinking, which made me a bit more nervous. So kissing Rupert was probably weirder actually. Dan wasn`t so bad," Watson said.

She is also looking forward to having a bit more freedom in her life after playing Hermione for the past 10 years.

"The amount of holidays I`ve had to sit in the shade or when I`ve gone skiing, not being allowed to ski. Or just not being allowed to get my ears pierced or paint my nails. Silly things like that, that you wouldn`t really think about, but obviously being Hermione I wasn`t allowed to do." Said Watson.
