Life! Singapore Interviews Emma Watson

Life! Singapore has a new interview with Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), where she discusses a variety of topics, among them her decision to cut her hair:

“I’ve been wanting to do this since I was 16,” she tells Life! in an interview at the swish Berkley Hotel in London.

“But I couldn’t because of the films. I couldn’t wear a wig. It wouldn’t look natural on someone my age.”

The homeschooled daughter of lawyers and current second-year student at Brown University, Rhode Island, had apparently walked into a New York salon alone, emerging from it two hours later minus 30cm of hair – and completely unrecognisable to the paparazzi.

“I was very calm,” she says.

Is this part of a whole new butch look?

“Butch?” she returns, bemused but slightly frowning.

“I think it’s rather gamine actually, rather feminine,” she says. “I’ve never felt sexier. I love it, this new hair.”

Later in the interview Watson speaks about her experience thus far as a student at Brown University, and what subject she might decide to major in:

“I think normality is underrated,” she says. “It took two weeks for everyone to get used to the idea of having an actress in class. But after that, everyone realised that I was just Emma, normal Emma.”

Life these days, she adds, is the unlikely bliss of squeezing four in a dormitory, “mulling over pizza on a Friday night.”

She has just completed the first year of “shopping for courses” and has not yet chosen to focus on a subject at university. “but I’m tempted towards doing something in history,” she says.

Watson also comments on shooting the "Deathly Hallows" epilogue in the interview:

“Well, we wore quite a few prosthetics and the make-up is always very good,” she says. “But I hear a lot of it will be CGI, so I’ll only be able to see for myself the same time as everyone else. It’s interesting to see how they made the children look like us too.”

I just keep thinking the “butch” question was a lost-in-translation moment. I can’t imagine the interviewer meant to say something that would upset her. Emma was very poised in her answer, wasn’t she? Good girl, Emma.

Butch? Those reporters don’t know what they are talking about! Emma Watson is beautiful for who she is and she always will be!

That was rude for the interviewer to say “butch”. Her hair really does look great on her, though, even if I did prefer her old style a bit. I am also mega-envious of her classmates!

That sounds great. Emma’s new haircut is what makes Emma her. Before she was just known as Hermione Granger but now she has her own identity.
History, I love reading about history.But it’s not something that I want to major in……..

I was sure she wore a wig in the first movie, didn’t really pay attention after that. I guess I’m not much of a wig judge..LOL!

I don’t think they understand the word butch as Emma doesn’t have the bodily build to be butch!

True, Emma couldn’t pass for butch with an open can of beer while faking a deep voice!
That was probably just a mistake to ask her if she was trying for butch.

English: For some time she has been trying to change the karma “Hermione Granger” she always made it clear does not like when we commented, “LOOK! IT’S HERMIONE!”…

She is writing a new movie it’s “A NEW ERA” for Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson.

Português (Brasil): Por algum tempo ela vem tentando se livrar do karma “Hermione Granger”, ela sempre deixou claro não gostar de “OLHA! É HERMIONE

Ela está gravando um novo filme, é “UMA NOVA ERA” para Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson.
