I’m so intrigued by the subtle (and not-so-subtle) differences between American and British culture, so I was pretty excited when Ellen Degeneres asked “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” star Emma Watson about her experiences dating men on either side of the pond. Emma’s answer didn’t disappoint–check out the video to get the scoop! [YouTube via Just Jared]
Ah, I remember the good old days, when I was 11 and sometimes liable to wear denim skirts over my jeans! Emma Watson is ever-adorable, but I’m a little concerned about the logic of this outfit. I know that this type of dress or skirt-over-pants situation is supposedly making a comeback (so I’ve heard), but really, is it ever a good look? Is it just impossible, even for someone as charmingly gamine as Emma, to pull off? The top is edging into dress territory; couldn’t she just as easily have worn tights to better result? I say let it die, babes… but what do you think?
I love Emma Watson in every single way, whether she’s Hermione Granger or, well, Emma Watson. (I apologize, but I will never let go of her, or my, Potter past.) She’s beautiful, British, smart, stylish, and rocks a daring pixie crop like a pro while flipping the proverbial finger to the suggestion that “men don’t like it” — what’s not to love? “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” was practically the bible of my Troubled Outcast youth, and there is a good chance I am going to see the movie in theaters multiple times. You know, for nostalgia’s sake. Keep reading »
“I have to for roles. But if I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever. Of course, men like long hair. There’s no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, ‘Why did you do that? That’s such an error.’ And I was like, ‘Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!’ I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair—I felt really good in my own skin.”
– Emma Watson, who stars in the film version of the young adult novel “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower,” talks with Glamour about getting her infamous pixie cut last year. God, dudes are so weird about hair length, aren’t they? See a few more photos from the shoot above and at the link! [Glamour]
Embarrassingly enough, I was a very serious “Harry Potter” fan back in the day, cloak and wand at the book releases and all. (I probably shouldn’t be outing myself on the Internet, but there it is.) I always thought Hermione was just the coolest, so my adoration of Emma Watson is really just a natural progression of that love. With big-name fashion campaigns and more than a few blockbusters under her belt, the 22-year-old actress went from being known as a bossy, bookish voice of reason to the sylphlike, short-haired vixen she is today. On the cover of T Magazine’s September issue, Emma looks every bit the young, serious ingénue, and she wears it especially well with a smattering of freckles and one sick cat-eye. [T Magazine]
Oh, no, “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” trailer is actually making me miss high school. (Horrible feeling. Don’t go there! Stop that!) Logan Lerman is cheek-pinchingly adorable as Charlie, the wallflower in question; Emma Watson and Amelia’s barely-legal boyfriend Ezra Miller are his misfit pals, Sam and Patrick. Paul Rudd co-stars as an English teacher who is hotter than should be allowed. The movie’s out September 14th, which gives you plenty of time to read the amazing book on which it is based, written by Stephen Chbosky. If you can handle the teen angst, that is. [MTV]
