Emma Watson has backtracked on her comments suggesting she hated locking lips with co-star Rupert Grint in the new Harry Potter movie - by branding the young actor a "very good kisser".
The British actress has repeatedly told interviewers how she had dreaded her smooching scene with Grint in the latest wizard instalment, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Watson even went as far to say that she was "desperate" for the scene to wrap, insisting it was anything but sexy.
She said, "I pounced on him, I was so desperate to get it over with."
But it seems the 19 year old is aiming to heal some of the damage she caused to Grint's ego - by heaping praise on his snogging techniques in a recent interview.
Watson tells London radio station Heart FM, "He was a very good kisser. I think Rupert's very handsome. Oh totally, he's looking good. Totally, definitely. Definitely."
