HONG KONG (AP) — Harry Potter star Emma Watson's advice to teenagers is: "feel comfortable in your own skin."

The 21-year-old Watson, on her second visit to Hong Kong, declined to comment on reports suggesting her relationship with boyfriend, actor Johnny Simmons, is on the rocks.

The British actress who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series of movies arrived in Hong Kong on Wednesday on a business trip.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, she said as a role model for teenagers, her best advice to them is: "be true to who you are and do the best to feel comfortable in your own skin. You are all right exactly as you are."

About 100 fans, holding up "Harry Potter" books or fashion magazines with Watson on the cover, greeted the actress who wore a blue sequined dress.
