Los Angeles: Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in `Harry Potter`, says he learned that Emma Watson had a crush on him through grapevine and found it very "flattering".

The 23-year-old actor is dating another `Harry Potter` star Jade Gordon, the Access Hollywood reported.

"I heard it through the grapevine. We can laugh about it now, but as testament to how long we`ve been doing this for, I`m pretty sure she was about 9, possibly 10... but yeah, very flattering," Felton said.

While Watson had her eyes on him, Felton says he had a crush on Helena Bonham Carter.

"Coincidentally, that was my childhood crush." The actor says he wrote the older actress a sweet note in a card "after the third or fourth film."
