Emma Watson says guys ignore her at first and are then mean to her.

The 'Harry Potter' actress claimed she doesn't have much luck with English men as they are very reserved and hardly ever approach her.

She told chat shot host Ellen DeGeneres: "English guys are very well put together.

"They dress really well and they are very well mannered. But they are also very restrained. Usually in the whole courting situation, I'm used to being first of all, ignored for the first two months of the ritual. And then maybe they'll acknowledge my presence. Then, they'll probably be a little mean to me. And then, maybe we'll, you know...whatever."

Yet the 'Perks Of Being A Wallflower' actress finds their American counterparts equally baffling, mainly because of their choice of footwear.

'The 22-year-old star, who has studied at Brown University said: "Then I arrive in America and I remember a few nights into Brown, this guy just being like, 'I like you. You're great. Let's go on a date. Let's do it.' I'm like, 'I'm sorry, what just happened?' This is like a huge culture shock for me. They're very like open and very straight-forward - but they wear flip-flops and I don't know if I like that."
