When Emma Watson's phone rang during a serious interview about films and fashion, the actress couldn't believe her bad luck. As for the interviewer, he couldn't believe just how cool Watson's ringtone was.

The call came less than a minute into the "Beauty and the Beast" star's chat with ITV's Mark Heyes.

"That is so embarrassing," she said with a smile as a song loudly interrupted them.

"That's ultimate respect," Heyes told the blushing actress. "I think that the best ringtone I've ever heard."
