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.”

If she’s happy with it, who cares? As long as she’s happy thats really all that matters or is relevant.

Love the College dorm part, thought it was a bit funny. I agree the “butch” part was just the reporter trying to get a rise and it was uncalled for.

Homeschooled? Hasn’t her shooting schedule always been coordinated so that she could continue to attend regular classes?

I support people I like in what they do if that is what makes them happy, so how could I hate Emma’s new look if it’s what she had desired for so long?
Not only that, but the whole thing about what is feminine and what not, just drives me crazy! There are women who look amazing with short hair (look at Emma) and men who are scrumptious with long, wavy hair…

I agree with NotSlytherin that the choice of words ‘butch’ may have had something to do with the interviewer being not so fluent in English. Maybe they were reaching for ‘tomboyish,’ which would be much more appropriate.

I mean, look at the fact that the author of the article describes the Berkley Hotel as ‘swish’ (which usually implies ‘effeminate’) when they probably meant ‘posh’! Pretty funny juxtaposition, actually – Freudian slips, perhaps?
