Emma Watson has learned to ''quality control'' people around her.

The 'Harry Potter' actress - who is currently dating student Will Adamowicz - approaches her relationships differently as she grows older, and wishes she had done the same in her formative years.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: ''I wish someone had told me at 15, 'You accept the love that you think you deserve.' I would have approached my relationships completely differently if they had. I like this idea of quality control - that we don't have to accept just anyone into our lives.

''People talk about love as though it just happens to you - as though you're a victim in it all, when actually you can make good choices and bad. But women have a Natural Tendency to want to nurture and take care of men. I tend to date people who are quite introspective. I like deep thinkers.''

Emma has had trouble with friends in recent years, struggling to find a sold group when she first went to the US to study at Brown University in 2009.

She said recently: ''My first two years at Brown weren't easy, not because I was bullied or because anyone gave me a particularly hard time, but just because, you know, without the collegiate system . . . and at Brown everyone does completely different things and very much chooses their own path, which is great, but it's also much more difficult, too. You're not with a group of people all the time at one time.''
