Harry Potter actress Emma Watson is smitten

Harry Potter star Emma Watson is looking very loved-up with a new American man.

The 21-year-old actress has been snapped hugging and kissing her The Perks Of Being A Wallflower co-star Johnny Simmons, 24.

Baby-faced Johnny has also starred in racy Megan Fox thriller Jennifer’s Body and comedy movie Scott Pilgrim vs The World.

He and Emma, who recently denied their relationship, seem pretty passionate about each other in new photos taken in LA.

Emma admits it’s not easy for her to find a boyfriend.

‘People say to me, “Oh it must be so easy for you – dating and boys. They must be lining up”,’ she has explained.

‘But it’s really not easy. It’s really not. I suppose guys are either kind of intimidated by me and have their defences up, or they like to take the p*ss out of me.’

Spokesmen for Johnny and Emma were not available for comment.
