Emma Watson has admitted she finds dating difficult because she's in the public eye.

The Harry Potter star was snapped looking cosy with fellow student Will Adamowicz at Coachella music festival earlier this year, and they are now thought to be dating, but she told Glamour she had thought they would be able to avoid the paparazzi at the event.

She said: "My friend got me tickets for my birthday, and what am I going to say? No, I'm not going to go, because I don't want to be photographed? But it was a huge crowd, and I thought there was no way anyone could get pictures of me, but somehow they found me."

She added: "It's difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I've had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!"

Emma, 22, also opened up about the short hairdo she debuted in 2010, admitting it didn't go down too well with the boys.

She said: "Of course, men like long hair. There's no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, 'Why did you do that? That's such an error.' And I was like, 'Well, honestly, I don't really care what you think!' I've never felt so confident as I did with short hair - I felt really good in my own skin."
