Here’s a video just for you! Though the dudes are quite annoying (accurate, yes, and efficient as well, but that doesn’t absolve them from almost giving me an epileptic fit with their rapid-fire speech), their information is spot-on. If you haven’t gotten the low down on what’s happened in the previous movies before seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, I strongly suggest you – try – to watch this.
Also, did any of you see the film last night? DID YOU LOVE IT?

Other people would love to see Emma Watson in a fat suit, right? Oh, please don’t let this just be me, I don’t want to get some weird fetishist label. To clarify, this isn’t something I’ve been daydreaming about when I think about how lovely Emma is or anything. This is a desire that just came on suddenly, right after I read that in this last movie, we’re actually going to see it.
Here’s Emma discussing the filming of the infamous Deathly Hallows epilogue:
It was really interesting and challenging. The thing that was hardest was trying to imagine that I had children that I was sending off to school. That was really strange. And it was weird that I was seeing these guys that I’d grown up with suddenly looking old. But it was fun. It felt nice to do that scene, but it really felt as if we had completed that journey fully as we possibly could. We had makeup on. I had, like, a little fat suit that changed my figure a little — it changed the shape of my body a little. And I had a wig and teeth in. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. I thought it was really going to freak me out.
I can barely stand the wait to see Deathly Hallows this Thursday, but knowing that I’m going to get to see Hermione all bogged down with the baby weight from little Rosie and Hugo? Man, this is almost going to be TOO wonderful.

This girl. is so. cute. Seriously. That jumping-yelling picture down below? Probably one of the more adorable things I’ve seen this week. With regard to the “love it or leave it” thing, definitely love it. I’d never leave it. It’s Hermione-frigging-Granger, for crying out loud. Though she probably laments the fact that she’s probably always going to be little Hermione Granger to me (and a lot of others too), it’s a good thing, a wholesome thing.

Why yes, I AM still in love with Emma Watson, thank you for noticing! That love’s been getting stronger and stronger because she’s been doing so many interviews lately, and this here interview with Seventeen is no exception.
On celebrity crushes: “I’ve never understood having crushes on people who you don’t know in real life. I only crush on people I meet. I mean, I can appreciate that someone is good-looking, obviously, but I don’t intend to fantasize about people I don’t know!”
On art: “If I hadn’t done Harry Potter, I would have gone and done years of art. I really do love it, and I’d love to write.”
On Draco Malfoy: “For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush. He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.”
Ugh, Hermione and Draco, sick! To wash that disgusting taste out of our mouths, let’s check out Emma’s precious photo shoot.

I don’t know if you guys could tell, but I am absolutely loving Emma Watson these days. She’s endearing, she’s beautiful – she’s everything I could ever want in an actor who I probably won’t care about in a year or two. And it’s just dizzying.
If you’re a fan, I’d pick up Emma’s issue of Vogue, but for now here’s a few quotes and, of course her photos:
On life after Harry Potter: “I have had no control over my life,” she blurts out. “I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.”
On Daniel Radcliffe: “He understood what his role was,” she says, “not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him.”
Daniel Radcliffe on Emma: For his part, Radcliffe remembers the relationship as being “very much like brother and sister, and when one or the other of us was having a tricky moment in our lives, it was often that we would confide in each other. We would also help each other with relationship advice; particularly funny were the moments when we would help each other compose texts to the most recent flames in either of our lives (not too flirty, but not too subtle either!). It was certainly a case of the blind leading the blind, but it was extremely funny.”
On romance: “I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love—and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.”
I love this girl.

“It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied. It made no sense at all. Brown has been the opposite. I’ve never even been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook. Anyway, even if I was being given a hard time, I wasn’t going to wuss out of university because someone said ‘Wingardium leviosa’ to me in a corridor, or ‘Ten points for Gryffindor.’ I’ve been dealing with the media since I was nine. If I can’t stand up to a few people giving me a hard time, it’s a bit pathetic, really. I’ve had so much worse.”
Damn, Emma, don’t hold back. Sorry for thinking you had emotions. My bad.
Meanwhile, Emma finds it hard to believe that some dudes might find her a little intimidating:
“I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me? Why doesn’t anyone ever pursue me?’ They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimidated.’ It must be the fame wall,” she said. “It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating. Sometimes, maybe because they feel intimidated, they feel they have to knock me down. They know perfectly well who I am, but they’ll ask me, ‘How are the Narnia films going?’” she laments. “I’m single at the minute.”
I still love Emma Watson to bits, but I can definitely see why some guys would find her intimidating, you know, what with her being perfect and all. How are you guys feeling about Emma at the moment?
