Everyone bugged the hell out when Emma Watson cut her hair off a few years back, marking the end of her Hermione Granger years. However, even more people lost their shit when Beyoncé unveiled her new short ‘do last week, and even though Emma’s grown hers out in recent months, she was thinking of going back to the boy cut after seeing Queen Bey’s.
Nearly got out my scissors this morning after seeing @Beyonce 's pixie cut. I only just managed to restrain myself. Close call though..

Well, that’s nice, but I personally think she suits longer hair better. Also, I feel like everyone is cutting their hair off lately and not a lot of people can carry it off – it’s a very specific look. Also, I totally didn’t know Emma Watson had Twitter. You learn something new every day, folks.

Poor Emma Watson. She’s really been trying to branch out since her Harry Potter days, most recently in whiner Sofia Coppola‘s The Bling Ring, in which she plays a celeb obsessed girl who actually burglars the houses of some of her favourite stars. I think that’s what that movie’s about, right? I dunno, there’s no torrent out yet (LOL). In any case, it turns out researching the role made her hella anxious, as she watched a shitload of reality TV to prepare for it – including Pretty Wild, the show with Alexis Neiers, who she plays in the film.
I have watched Pretty Wild, the reality show about the real-life Bling Ring, so many times. I’m obsessed with Alexis Neiers, the girl you play in the movie. Have you heard from her about the film or anything?
No, I haven’t. To be fair to Alexis, [my character] is like three steps removed from who she might be in real life. A lot of the material in the movie was based on an article which was based on a reality show, which we all know isn’t real life. I wasn’t trying to impersonate her—she just inspired the character. I watched Pretty Wild so many times to try and get her into my brain, though. It gave me anxiety. How do you watch it?
I’ve never seen that show and really felt quite disconnected from entertainment when this film was announced because I barely remember this whole fiasco in real life. Like, I vaguely remember it happening, but I wasn’t all that into it and never would have expected a movie on it.
Have you seen The Bling Ring yet? Is it worth watching?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before (because I feel like I have), but Emma Watson was really to throw in the ole acting towel after production ended on the final Harry Potter film a couple of years back. Basically, she’d grown up on camera and wanted to take a break and figure out who she was and if this is something she could actually see herself doing long-term. The answer was obviously yes (for now), but let’s let Emma tell us.
From Total Film (via DS):
“It’s funny because people are probably playing the films somewhere right now but for me it happened three or four years ago,” she said.
“I basically took two years out and stepped as far away from it as I could – I mean, the Harry Potter films were still coming out – but I took time to really try and figure out who I was and what I wanted to do. I even considered not being an actress.”

Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.
BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller
WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.
PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY: Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway

If you haven’t heard about The Bling Ring yet, I’ll give you a short synopsis. It’s Sofia Coppola‘s movie about the true story of a teenage burglary ring who broke into the homes of several celebrities in the Hollywood Hills. What’s not to love? Emma Watson stars as Nikki, the leader of the girl gang, in a totally refreshing role that’s a far cry from Harry Potter, that’s for sure.
Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Leslie Mann, Claire Julien, Georgia Rock and Carlos Miranda are also in the movie, which is coming out June 14 in the US and I have to be honest, I can’t wait to see this shit.
If you want to know Emma’s thoughts on the movie, here’s a few – she basically hated her character but “relished” the chance to play someone so amoral and selfish. Hurrah!
“When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it.
“The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate?
“But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be.”
