Did you know Emma Watson was born in Paris? She lived there until age 5, before heading to the U.K. where she is now famously British and best known for playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films.

Emma is now 22 and looks sexy and edgy on the new February 2013 cover of Marie Claire UK. In the issue, she talks about her native France. “I always have the same New Year’s resolution: to speak French fluently,” Emma tells the magazine (via Just Jared). “I get a huge wave of nostalgia when I come into the Gare du Nord. There’s such an emphasis on culture, art and music. And I’ll do anything for a warm baguette." Anything!

Emma probably speaks French fairly well, but she also admits, "I’m a bit OCD about perfectionism. I’m my own worst critic. I think that’s really hard, but it also spurs me on. I always want to do better. I’m always striving towards the next thing.”

Maybe the next thing will be to actually get fluent in French and come up with a different resolution for 2014!
