Emma Watson opens up about one SERIOUSLY awkward date

Turns out even Emma Watson finds the world of dating hard to navigate.

The actress took part in a life #HeForShe webcast yesterday, International Women's Day, as part of her work with the UN's gender equality campaign.

She admitted that she has struggled to make all elements of her own personal life more equal, and opened up about an "awkward" date where she tried to even out the gender imbalance by picking the restaurant herself and paying for the meal.

"It was really awkward and uncomfortable. It was not going down well. I'm sure he would say he was a feminist but he was just like, 'ooh, I'm not really sure about this', it was making him feel a bit tetchy," she said.

However the actress said it wasn't all bad, as the bumpy start meant she was able to chat to her date about some issues that meant a lot to her. "The cool thing about it was that we were both willing to have the conversation about why it was awkward, why it was uncomfortable. We were able to have this dialogue."

Emma said she loves being treated on a date but that she wanted to give something new a try. "I love having the door opened for me. I love being taken to dinner, it's so great. I think the key is: would you then mind if I opened the door for you?"  she explained.

Good woman Emma – we love that attitude!
