Watch Emma Watson Say ‘That's Awesome!’ Like an American (Video)

The “Harry Potter” star humorously parses the difference between U.S. and U.K. fans on “Letterman” Monday

It's a proud day to be an American.

That's because we now know that Emma Watson, the British actress who plays Hermione in the "Harry Potter" films, prefers U.S. fans to their U.K. counterparts.

"British audiences members will come out and say, 'Well, that was very good,'" said Watson, while explaining the difference during a stop at "Late Show with David Letterman." "The American way is 'That was awesome!'"

"As much as I love being in the U.K.," she concluded, "that's the kind of response you want to get to your movie."

In the three clips below, Letterman also grills Watson about whether she's ever been drunk before and how it was to go from 9 to 21 over the course of filming the eight "Harry Potter" movies, whose final installment is released on Wednesday.

"I've actually spent more time being Hermione than I have just being myself," she said.

When asked whether she envies friends who aren't involved with the Harry Potter film series.

"Ever wonder, I wonder what it would be like to have a life like that?"

"I think it would have been much more boring," she deadpanned. "I'm pretty happy with the way my life turned out … I mean, who doesn't want to be the Harry Potter girl."
