Emma WatsonDing ding... Round one. Harry Potter star, Emma Watson , has kicked off the fantasy franchise movie face-off by slamming the hugely popular Twilight movies for "selling sex".

The 22-year-old actress, who reprises her role as Hermione Granger in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part I, condemned the rival franchise during a promotional tour of the movie.

Watson had been discussing the long-gestating romance between her character and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) when she told OK Magazine, "This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated and it's been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know'. We're not selling sex."

And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know'. We're not selling sex."

The actress went on to explain how uncomfortable the kissing scene was for her and Grint to shoot: "It was horribly awkward; we couldn't stop laughing," she said. "The nicest thing about it was, before we did it, we turned to each other and were like, 'God, this is going to be awful, isn't it?' but hopefully it will look good."

As yet, we wait for a response from the Twilight camp to Watson's comments. Not that we want to get involved but maybe they could accuse the Potter bunch of peddling black magic...
