Beauty and The Beast made Emma Watson Cry

Find out what it was about the movie that brought her to tears

Actress, feminist and now, singer!

Emma Watson is a powerhouse of talent, but even she had to put in some effort to ensure her vocals were up to par in Beauty and the Beast. The Harry Potter star portrays Belle in Disney's live-action remake, and while she has enchanted fans with her performance, Emma admits it took a lot of work to make sure her vocals were up to scratch for the movie musical.

"I was in tears," she gushed on Britain's This Morning show as she recalled her initial viewing of the finished project. "I couldn't believe that I... after I managed to get through three months of singing lessons - to see where I had got to. I couldn't believe it, I was really proud."

Beauty and the Beast has been breaking box office records in the U.S. and U.K. ever since hitting cinemas last week, and the actress jokes the film may be the pinnacle of her career.

"I'm 26 and I've peaked!" she quipped. "Belle was one of my childhood heroines and Hermione was too, and now I've played both. As an actor to get to do both is just incredible!"

And it appears all her real-life suitors are doomed to be second best after Belle's elegant ballroom dance scene with Dan Stevens' The Beast.

"There's never going to be a more romantic moment in my life!" she beams. "There will never be a more romantic dress or ballroom or more romantic dance with my love interest!" 

Eat your hearts out boys, the bar is set way too high!
