Emma Watson says the "most beautiful" present she ever received was a fishing rod.

The actress was catapulted to fame as a child when she landed a lead role in the Harry Potter movie franchise. Since then she has carved out a successful career in Hollywood and become a fashion icon. Emma's interest in clothes has seen her form close bonds with a series of top designers.

When the star turned 18, Karl Lagerfeld sent her a Chanel fly-fishing rod to celebrate the landmark.

"It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen," she told the UK edition of Glamour. "It's actually my dad who's the fly-fisher in the family, but it was so sweet that Karl had obviously done some research, seen that I'd once donated to The Wild Trout Trust or something similar and thought that this would be something that I would love."

Emma went on to admit that the fishing rod is so incredible, she is reluctant to get it dirty.

"I've never used it but it's such a beautiful object - one of the best things I've ever been sent," she gushed.
