Emma Watson is gearing up to enchant audiences with the upcoming live-action musical Beauty and the Beast, but she’s also proving her personal taste in music is on point.

During an interview with Mark Heyes for her latest movie Colonia (which hits theaters Friday in the U.K., but had a very limited opening earlier this year in the U.S.) on ITV’s Lorraine, the conversation took a quick turn when the actress’ phone started to ring. The moment happens at the 0:58 mark in the video, above. 

Tina Turner’s “Steamy Windows” blared its upbeat chorus as the Harry Potter alum quickly reached to find the silence button. “That is so embarrassing. That is my phone,” blushes Watson. “That is Tina Turner!”

Thankfully, Heyes didn’t want to leave her hanging in the moment and added, “That is ultimate respect. I think that’s the best ringtone I’ve ever heard!” The pair then continues the interview, commenting on Watson’s chic and sophisticated fashion sense on and off the red carpet.

Before Beauty and the Beast opens March 17, 2017, audiences can see Watson alongside Tom Hanks in the sci-fi thriller The Circle, which hits theaters later this year.
