Emma Watson expressed her desire to invite Michelle Obama as a guest for a pep talk. In a recent interview, the actress couldn't contain herself from opening up about her admiration for the social figure Michelle and candidly expressed her wish to talk to her and invite her as the guest of honour.

The 'Beauty and the Beast' actress said that she could surely gain some useful advice from Michelle Obama. When asked during a question and answer session with her young fans for Entertainment Weekly regarding who would she invite as her dream house guest, the 26-year-old actress wasted no time in taking the name the former First Lady of US. The actress quickly answered, "Michelle Obama. Just for a quick chat, you know. Just for a quick pep talk. That would be great."

While Watson is also one of the ambassadors for the United Nations's HeForShe outreach movement and is quite active for the social cause, Michelle Obama is also extremely popular and respected for her social and public work. Maybe because of this common factor that the British actress wants to take Michelle's advice and catch up with her for a pep talk.

Emma also talked about how much she finds her role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter strong. She said that her role was strong as well as feminine and the character had her own significance and intelligence. The actress said, "Hermione was that perfect example of turning on its head this initial prejudice that she gets. Hermione finds a way to wield her intelligence and become really the leader in this group of two other boys and that's kind of the role that she assumes."
