Hey, do you remember the last time I showed you one of Emma Watson‘s Lancome ads? I really liked it, but a couple of you guys didn’t (and, by the way, there was a comment that I didn’t see from someone who was kind of bitchy because she thought that I thought that I could buy this makeup and look just like Emma Watson, because I’m dumb enough to think that makeup is magic that can make me look just like a thin, beautiful celebrity. LOL! Also, she knew I was a theatre major in college – you guys know me! – and she was bitchily confused about how I don’t know a lot about street makeup. LOL again! I can do shadows and contours and aging makeup and fantasy makeup, I can make a mold of my own face to make a mask and do stage makeup on that, but that doesn’t mean I know if Lancome lipstick is good or not. Is this too catty a tangent? Whatevs). But now there’s a new one! So let’s talk about that.
This ad is for Lancome’s Blanc Expert, which is a dark spot corrector. Emma here looks pretty good, but I don’t really think she had any dark spots in the first place, so that’s something to take into consideration. The packaging of the product is also pretty sleek, which is something I like to take into consideration.
I’m going to be real though: it took me a minute to notice what the ad was for and then to actually look at her skin, because all I could see was her hair. That hair. I’m not going to judge, because I remember that awful place of growing out super short hair, but this is just … I just can’t with this hair. Couldn’t they have done some strategic pinning so that she didn’t have a mullet? Is there some sort of chic mullet trend that I’ve never heard about? What’s going on here? And what’s more, does she actually kind of pull it off?
While we’re here, I have one more question for you: can you tell me of a lipstick, any lipstick at all, that will actually stay on my face without constant reapplications? I feel like stepping up my game, but everything I’ve tried so far has let me down. Any suggestions?
My oh my, how beautiful Emma Watson is looking these days, huh? That hair of hers sure is growing in nicely, and that’s about the most g-rated thing I can say about Emma Watson right now, because her beauty is simply captivating … Among—ahem—other things.
Here’s Emma, to Marie Claire, on how grounded she is:
“Friends and family come first and work comes second, that’s just how I live my life.”
And Emma on her schooling:
“I try to step away from the entertainment industry when I go and study – that gives me more time. I did my third year in Oxford, so that I could be around my family. Ultimately they’re the priority. I don’t put anything above them. I think having time to step away and study really, really helps.”
And last, Emma on acting itself:
“It is a strange thing that I do and it can feel quite unnerving. It’s good to remember that it’s a bit mad.”
So yes, I know. All in all, a pretty boring interview. But these pictures. Hermione Granger Emma Watson was always super cute and pert and pretty, but when, dear God, did she get so hot?
OK, so I’m not going to lie: I watched at least half of this trailer trying to decide whether or not I this movie was complete and utter bullshit, or if this movie actually had some hidden genius somewhere. Want to know how it all ends? I’ll give you a hint: it’s the first thing. The “complete and utter bullshit” option, and while it’s chock-full of big name celebrities like Jonah Hill, Emma Watson, James Franco, and Seth Rogen, among others, it’s *also* an self-indulgent piece of dreck that isn’t worth the three minutes and eleven seconds of its red band trailer. Also in the film is Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Mindy Kaling, and Rihanna.
Hey, also, is Jay Baruchel the worst actor that ever lived or what? For real—I’m pretty sure his best work happened in ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’.
Thoughts on ‘This is the End’? Am I being too hard on this wee wittow movie?
On another note, something that’s not at all dumb—well, OK, sort of dumb, but not dumb in the way that ‘This is the End’ is dumb—’Warm Bodies’. Hear of it? Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the first four minutes if you’re still interested:
God, Emma Watson is so pretty. It’s odd because Hermione Granger was supposed to be a sort of plain girl with bushy hair and messed up teeth, so I get really confused when I see her, because she’s so pretty. And this new Lancome ad is, as they say, off the hook.
The ad is for their new collection for spring called In Love, and it’s pretty wonderful. I believe this is the first makeup ad I’ve ever seen that made me actually want to buy makeup too, so well done, guys. I especially love the lipstick. Am I right in coveting it, or does it just look so good because Emma’s wearing it? Can I take this ad to Ulta and say “give me all of these things”? Makeup is hard.
Blah blah blah let’s all fawn over Emma Watson because this is what we do and really, there’s not a bad thing that anyone could say about this sweet darling of a lady. From IO Donna, Emma on the difference between her Harry Potter character, Hermione, and Charlie in Perks of Being a Wallflower:
“I grew up working on the set of Harry Potter, a world quite isolated and so it wasn’t hard for me to understand the character of Charlie. Like him, I felt a constant desire to be accepted, to feel normal.”
On what it’s like to film a movie based on high school, when in reality, Emma never attended high school herself:
“I did a crash course in high school! In seven weeks I focused everything I had ever done: dancing, games, fraternities. A perfect voyeuristic experience.”
Emma on growing and changing and learning to accept herself—which is awesome at the young age of
twenty-two years old:
“I only recently learned to feel good in my skin. The sad thing is that no one can teach you anything, only you can learn from your experiences.”
Finally, Emma on how cutting her hair was actually an intention to rid herself of the Hermione notoriety:
“I’m glad that I can see in a new incarnation, so I can change, to grow. I was, to say the truth, a little shaken by such a fuss [of those talking about my short hair on the Internet], but it’s always flattering to be on the minds of my fans. I needed, however, to get rid of Hermione.”

“Rupert gave me a beaver when we all left. He sponsored a beaver for me for a year.”
- Emma Watson tells us all of the gift that Rupert Grint gave her when they were done filming the last Harry Potter movie.
This was just a small little part from this interview that Emma did about the cast of Harry Potter. She discussed her relationships with different cast members, and how there was no romance at all between herself and Rupert or Daniel Radcliffe (she says “I never so much as pecked one of them on the cheek”), but that she did have a crush on Tom Felton, hot ass Draco Malfoy, when she was 10 because “he was a few years older than me and had a skateboard.”
You know, that’s neat information and all, and I will never skip out on the chance to learn more about anything at all even remotely related to Harry Potter, but I just really think the beaver quote sold the whole thing, don’t you?
