Emma Watson is sporting a decidedly grown-up look on the cover of Vogue, but inside she talks about the love advice she and childhood friend and costar Daniel Radcliffe gave each other.

Would you take love advice from Harry Potter? Emma Watson did, and Daniel Radcliffe says she gave it right back.

In a remarkably candid interview, Watson described what it was like to grow up on the set of Harry Potter, and how close she and the cast and crew became.

Radcliffe described their relationship "very much like brother and sister, and when one or the other of us was having a tricky moment in our lives, it was often that we would confide in each other. We would also help each other with relationship advice; particularly funny were the moments when we would help each other compose texts to the most recent flames in either of our lives (not too flirty, but not too subtle either!). It was certainly a case of the blind leading the blind, but it was extremely funny."

"I think it's fair to say that Emma and I were the two most opinionated members of the young cast," he said.

Emma Watson has nothing but respect and familial love for her costar. "He understood what his role was," she said, "not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him."
