While promoting her new movie, Beauty and the Beast (maybe you’ve heard of it?), Emma copped to a couple of weird (but brutally honest) childhood crushes, specifically on the pre-transformation Beast from the original animated Beauty and the Beast and Aslan the Lion from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

“There’s something a bit sad about when he transforms. You’re like a bit like ‘Oh, OK. You were quite nice before,'” she told Yahoo News at the premiere of Beauty and the Beast. “He’s hot. The beast is hot.”

Also hot, according to Emma? Aslan.

“I found the lion quite hot. Is that wrong?” she said. “Is that OK? Probably no. No. It’s not OK, it’s not OK, I’m getting shaking heads.”

“It happens! Sometimes animals in films are hot,” she said. I don’t know what to say. That’s where we’re at.”

We get you, Emma. We get you.
