If you’ve been harbouring a secret love for Disney animals that you’re too embarrassed to admit to anyone, Emma Watson just reminded us all that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it!

Our current GF cover star just admitted that she too is all about ~hot~ animated characters, including Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia. It sounds like her unexpected confession took everyone by surprise but she’s not too worried.


“Aslan, in Narnia? I found the lion quite hot,” she dished to Yahoo. “Is that wrong? Is that okay? Probably not…No… It’s not okay… It’s not okay… I’m getting shaking heads. It happens. Sometimes animals in films are hot. I don’t know what to say. That’s where we’re at.”

We know what you’re thinking, does she share the same views as Belle in Beauty and the Beast? Yup, she’s actually more attracted to the Beast than when he’s in human form. Soz Dan Stevens.

“There’s something a bit sad about when he transforms,” she said. “You’re like a bit…oh…okay you were quite nice before. He is hot. The Beast is hot.”

So there you go… turns out that crush we’ve always had on a grown-up Simba from The Lion King isn’t so weird after all.
