And they had a drink and some food and a perfectly lovely time. What a lame joke, right?
But, as you can see in that video, Emma Watson herself confirms that Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence did finally meet and make friends, and also that “they’re both lovely. They’re both super, super sweet.”
So yeah, no cat fights or screaming matches or thrown drinks or boyfriend stealing. Just dinner and drinks. Is everything we’ve ever been told a lie?

On Monday, Sarah shared a bunch of quotes from darling Emma Watson‘s interview with Glamour, and we all felt a bunch of warm fuzzies for our dear Hermione Granger. But a new quote is making the rounds now, and I think it’s pretty interesting.
“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.”
Well, ok, she didn’t directly say that she’s growing out her hair because “men like long hair,” but that’s kind of what she hinted at, right? Her phrasing is sort of confusing – she’d prefer to have short hair, but men don’t like it, but she doesn’t care what men think. Then why doesn’t she have short hair? She can obviously get wigs or extensions for movies and modeling gigs. What’s the problem?
Also, I wish dudes would just mind their business when it comes to ladies’ hair. When I cut all my hair off, I had multiple women tell me that they would love to have short hair, but their husbands or boyfriends wouldn’t let them cut it. Like, that was the phrasing they would use, “he won’t let me.” And I get that you’re attracted to what you’re attracted to, but come on now, bros. You’re not in a relationship with hair, and unless you’ve got some weird fetish I don’t know about, you’re not having sex with hair. That long hair that you like looking at sometimes is your girl’s business, not yours.
Basically, please chop it off again, Emma. You love it, it loves you, and girl. You so pretty.

Oh Emma Watson. I just don’t even know how some people can get along in the world not being Emma Watson, because to be Emma Watson is to be divine.
Here’s Emma, in the latest issue of Glamour UK, on “accepting her shape”:
“I’ve accepted my body shape more as I’ve got older. I went through a stage of wanting to have that straight-up-and-down model look, but I have curves and hips, and in the end you have to accept yourself as you are.”
And here’s darling Emma on weight fluctuation since her body’s matured, and how she’s not built like a doll:
“My weight has fluctuated between a size 6 and a 10. When you’re growing, your body is still figuring itself out and it takes a while to settle down. I keep telling myself that I’m a human being, an imperfect human being who’s not made to look like a doll, and that who I am as a person is more important than whether at that moment I have a nice figure.”
On a side note, if she’s talking British sizes, and I’m pretty sure she is, considering the fact that the Glamour interview was in Glamour UK, then she’s saying that she fluctuates between a US size 2 and a US size 6. Which is great, you know, if you’re an “average woman,” but that upper end of size 6 is apparently bad, bad, bad, and FAT FATTY FATTERSON if you’re in Hollywood. Please.
Emma on unrealistic expectations from women (and by women, too):
“It makes me sad to hear girls constantly putting themselves down. We have these unbelievably high expectations of ourselves, when actually we’re human beings and out bodies have a function. We say that the pressure is coming from men but actually it’s from each other. I think women feel so much pressure these days and it can turn us against each other. But we really damage our own confidence when we put ourselves down, so I try not to.”
And last, Emma on relationships, and how her opinion of relationships has evolved over the last few years:
“You accept the love that you think you deserve. I would have approached my relationships completely differently if they had. I like this idea of quality control – that we don’t have to accept just anyone into our lives. People talk about love as though it just happens to you – as though you’re a victim in it all, when actually you can make good choices and bad. But women have a natural tendency to want to nurture and take care of men. I tend to date people who are quite introspective. I like deep thinkers.”
I don’t know, guys. I think Emma’s pretty damn near perfect, if you ask me. She’s got a lovely figure (although I don’t get all the worry and contemplation about curves and what not if you’re a size 2 or 4 or even 6, really), she’s a sweet girl, and she’s got her head on straight. And may I remind you that girlfriend is only twenty-two years old? Because girlfriend is only twenty-two years old.
Can we just get a few more Emmas in the world? Please?

Ahem. From the Mail:
Picasso had his rose period – and now so too does Emma Watson’s dog Darcy, after the Harry Potter actress dyed her a shocking shade of bubblegum pink. Thanks to a fashionable £90 treatment, the one-year-old bichon frise now has a look that might go down well with pink-loving Hogwarts professor Dolores Umbridge – even if it has raised eyebrows among some animal-lovers.
Ms Watson was spotted with the pink pooch on the streets of Bethnal Green, East London, on Friday, after having the dye treatment at Groom Dog City. Owner Stuart Simons said: ‘Emma has dyed Darcy twice. Pink is our biggest colour, but I do look after another bichon called Casper who comes in for a blue mohican.’
He said the beetroot-based semi-permanent dye is harmless. ‘All the dyes I use are completely animal-friendly. They are made from vegetable dye. I wet the dog, rub it on like a shampoo, leave it for five minutes and then wash it off. Because Darcy is white, it takes really well. She is a very calm dog, absolutely lovely, and she enjoys her groom.’
But TV vet Emma Milne said: ‘Dogs are not playthings; they are not dolls. If you are putting a chemical on a dog’s fur, you could cause that dog problems. Even if the dye is completely safe – and the dye that Emma Watson has used should be absolutely fine – you are still altering the way the dog looks and smells to other animals. Potentially, it could have an effect on the way that dog interacts with other dogs. A dog is still a living object that hasn’t had any say on whether it wants to be pink.’
Unsurprisingly, Mr Simons – whose own dyed dogs have featured in campaigns for fashion house Mulberry – disagrees.
‘Lots of people say it’s cruel to dye a dog but I say, it takes no time, it doesn’t affect their skin and they don’t look in the mirror and go, “Oh, I’m so embarrassed.” Rather, they get so much attention in public and all the strokes and interaction, it can’t be a bad thing.’
He also believes his salon will see a sharp increase in ‘doggy dyes’ during the Olympics. ‘Oh yes,’ he said. ‘I expect to get a lot of requests for red, white and blue. And I may be able to do the Olympic circles on poodles.’
Emma, however, claims that she doesn’t have a dog and claims that the dog is pink because its owner is trying to raise money for breast cancer research. On her Twitter, she says:
Ayeye. Just to clarify one more time that I don’t have a dog. @PinkDarcyDog is pink because her owner is raising money for breast cancer.
Is that OK? Well. I don’t know. You’ll have to ask PETA or someone else who doesn’t think that this poodle thing is damn cute pink, because it is. Are you guys angry? Do you believe it’s not even hers? If it’s not, don’t you think she’d spend a little more time explaining whose it is rather than telling us why it’s pink instead?

OK, call me overly-sentimental this morning, but this movie looks amazing. It’s moving and heartwarming and Emma Watson is flat-out f-cking adorkable in this trailer. Her “American” accent is a little bit sketchy, but she definitely pulls off this performance and rocks it right the hell out.
The movie, ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’, is based on the book of the same name, and according to IMDB is a coming-of-age drama-dy:
An introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world.
About the film, Emma says:
A trailer of the film, released last night, shows the former Harry Potter series actor dancing in lingerie during a burlesque show to a song from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
“I was very nervous to that stuff,” Miss Watson told a cable television channel at the MTV Movie Awards yesterday. “It was tough. I think Harry Potter fans will love it because it has so much heart, like the Harry Potter stories do. I feel like it’s the perfect transition from Harry Potter to kind of a more adolescent movie. It’s a little bit of an older tone. It’s darker.”
Stephen Chbosky’s book is among those that have prompted most complaints to the American Library Association, for its treatment of drugs, homosexuality, nudity and offensive language.
‘Perks’ is set to premiere in September, later this year, and while I probably won’t see it in theaters, I’m quite sure that it’ll be a guilty-pleasure Saturday afternoon movie when it comes out on HBO or something.

From The Sun:
Emma Watson is now making a decent attempt to change her whiter-than-white reputation by learning how to dance like a stripper.
The actress has taken up saucy pole-dancing lessons while working on the set of her new film The Bling Ring.
She signed up for the classes after one of her pals on set told her about the benefits of the sport (getting fit, that is, not earning a few quid on the side).
A source said: “Like on all film sets, there’s often so much time spent doing nothing. One of the other actresses on the set has been pole-dancing as a sport for a while and Emma decided to give it a go as well. She’s amazed with the results because it has toned up her body so well.
“She never thought she would enjoy it but she finds it quite liberating.”
It’s not the first time Emma has been among a crowd of pole-twirling ladies. The actress visited a gentlemen’s club after the New York premiere for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 late last year.
She spent more than three hours dancing with pals but wasn’t brave enough to give the poles a go herself.
When was it that people started getting really into pole dancing as a form of exercise? It was at least five years ago, right? I remember there were all these classes for pole dancing, and all these kits you could buy to put a pole in your own house, and everyone was going on and on about what a great workout it is. It got to the point where it was kind of annoying, didn’t it?
But whatever. If dancing on a pole works for you or if it’s super fun, that’s awesome. But I absolutely cannot imagine Hermione Granger doing this. I can’t. She would die. It’s the same thing with that lame Bling Ring movie, Hermione would never in her life go out looking like that. And I’m sure it sucks for Emma that I’m probably going to think of her as Hermione for the rest of her life, but hey, those are choices that she made.
But hey, is the whole pole dancing thing still popular?
