Emma Watson talks "Girls," Lena Dunham obsession.

It's not just New Yorkers: twenty-somethings across the pond are obsessing over "Girls" too.

In an interview with Glamour magazine, "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson, who will debut her American accent in this month's "Perks Of Being A Wallflower" (out Sept. 21), gushed about her love of Lena Dunham and the HBO series.

“I am literally obsessed with ['Girls' creator and star] Lena Dunham," Watson said. "She’s, like, my favorite person in the world. I follow her on Twitter; I read her every day. And, yes, 'Girls' is an example of something so refreshing because it feels real.”

"Girls" was one of the most buzzed about shows on TV this Spring, but Dunham experienced a huge amount of criticism. Not only was the writer accused of only casting actresses with famous parents, but she was was called out for not including any characters of color.

"Each character was a piece of me or based on someone close to me," Dunham explained in an interview with NPR. "And only later did I realize that it was four white girls."

"Girl" returns to HBO in January 2013.
