OTRC: Emma Watson calls America her 'second home'

Emma Watson dishes on why she loves the new 'Harry Potter' film and a talks about doing movies versus midterms.

Although Emma Watson talks in a crisp English accent, and says "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" is "bloody good", she's become very fond of American life since she began studying at Brown University in Rhode Island.

During a recent press junket for the film, Watson remarked at how much she enjoyed hearing American accents again. "I met with all the American journalists, and I felt as if I were home," Watson said in an interview with the Orange County Register. "It was great to hear American accents again. American really is my second home."

She added, "Americans are friendly and sweet and open and honest and gorgeous."

The actress also remarked about her time at Brown saying, "It's been great; it's been an adventure. I feel as if I've learned as much outside the classroom as I've learned inside the classroom."

Watson recently told OnTheRedCarpet.com, that she was surprised at the quality of the latest "Harry Potter" film, which is heating up the box office weekend and managed to earn $61.2 million on Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's intense from the minute it comes on, it's really dark, it's really scary, and it's just the most real and visceral and exciting one yet I think," Watson said. "The best thing I've heard people say is that it really makes them feel something. It's got a lot of heart, which is cool."
