Emma Watson and Prince Harry Aren’t a Thing

Hermione mud bloodSo you heard that Emma Watson and Prince Harry are an item, yes? Well, they’re not. Firstly, Watson is a classy young broad who I’d like to believe has much better taste than that, and second, she said so on Twitter (sort of).

But then again, I wanted to believe that Hermione Granger wouldn’t fall for a certain sweet-yet-clueless ginger with a knack for being dead weight when people are busy trying their hardest to destroy Voldemort. Lesson: anyone lacking the last name “Potter” or “Radcliffe” is a bad choice for her.

Here’s what Watson had to say on social media about not dating a full-blood prince:

The “exclusive” story from Women’s Day Australia detailed a tryst that thrived on “secret dates” and the fact that Harry is “smitten” for more than just “Emma’s looks,” and is instead after her soul because he doesn’t have one.  Continue reading “Emma Watson and Prince Harry Aren’t a Thing”

Emma Watson Cast as Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast’

Feminist/actress/down-to-earth sex symbol Emma Watson has been cast as Belle in a live action version of Beauty and the Beast directed by Bill Condon of Breaking Dawn, uh, fame.

Can’t wait for Belle to be pregnant with Beast’s baby and have to sacrifice Mrs. Potts (voice of Meryl Streep, obviously) to it. Speaking of that, how on earth are they going to depict talking clocks and dishware? Will the feather duster still get it on with the candlestick?

Are they going to do my favorite Disney movie justice or is it just Fifty Shades of Grey with an animal twist. Like the highest budget donkey show ever…  Continue reading “Emma Watson Cast as Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast’”

Turns Out, Uneducated Pervs DIDN’T Try to Ruin Emma Watson’s Awesome Speech On Feminism

You may have heard about Emma Watson’s extremely insightful and empowering speech to the U.N., which was about equality and feminism being one and the same.

You ALSO may have heard that a bunch of trolls threatened to leak naked pictures of Watson to somehow make her seem like less of a feminist.

The people behind the countdown to Watson’s nude leak were actually a marketing group hired to shut down 4Chan and end the constant invasion of privacy from the hackers behind the Jennifer Lawrence scandal.  Continue reading “Turns Out, Uneducated Pervs DIDN’T Try to Ruin Emma Watson’s Awesome Speech On Feminism”

The Bling Ring Review: ‘Artsy’ Movie About Shallow Teenage Thieves Doesn’t Work

still from the bling ring cast
Sofia Coppola directs a movie about every three years, and each one prior to 2010’s Somewhere, which I didn’t see, was beautifully designed and disconnected in that way that we all are when we step into a crowd.

Sadly, the style Coppola applied in the Oscar-winning Lost in Translation simply doesn’t work in a film about morally corrupt, glamour-obsessed teens.

For months we’ve read about Emma Watson’s imitation of Alexis Neiers, who, with Nick Prugo, Rachel Lee and a few others, was convicted of burglarizing the homes of celebrities like Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan.

Coppola’s fifth feature film opens with fragmented conversations with Marc (Israel Broussard as Prugo), a nervous young man who doesn’t quite fit in, and continues on to his life at an alternative school in Calabasas where he almost immediately befriends Rebecca (Katie Chang as Lee, the bling ringleader).

Emma Watson Watched ‘Pretty Wild’ ‘So Many Times’

Emma Watson Alexis Neiers
As a teenager I was obsessed with Sofia Coppola’s directorial debut, The Virgin Suicides, and then came the Harry Potter movies, and now, as an adult, I find myself voyeuristically fascinated by reality shows.

Obviously The Bling Ring, directed by Coppola, starring Emma Watson and based on Alexis Neiers from one of my favorite “bad” reality shows, Pretty Wild, is my kind of movie.

After reading various interviews with Watson about The Bling Ring, I started feeling like she was skirting the issue of who her character, Nicki, is actually supposed to be.

Watson FINALLY spoke candidly about Pretty Wild when a 16-year-old Rookie Magazine interviewer mentioned Pretty Wild and asked if she had received any feedback from Neiers.  Continue reading “Emma Watson Watched ‘Pretty Wild’ ‘So Many Times’”

Emma Watson Talks To W About ‘The Bling Ring,’ Fame and Sex Appeal

Emma Watson W 2013 Inside the June/July issue of W Magazine, Emma Watson discusses her upcoming film and her past, before and right after scoring Harry Potter. And on The Bling Ring, Watson said, in the most demure way possible, that she was actually too classy to understand why her character would want people to see her bra.

In related news, Emma told reporters at Cannes that she watched “a lot of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians and ‘The Hills,’” to understand the psychology of Nicki/Alexis Neiers. She added that she “thought a lot about what her parents must have been like.”

I find this weird because Pretty Wild (with the real-life Alexis Neiers and her mother) is on Netflix streaming.

(Maybe she’s not allowed to say that was her real point of reference for legal reasons?) The dynamic between Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian is not exactly the same. Just watch. You’ll see.  Continue reading “Emma Watson Talks To W About ‘The Bling Ring,’ Fame and Sex Appeal”

Emma Watson Does Her Best Impression of a Dumb Girl in New ‘Bling Ring’ Clip

Emma Watson Bling RingSofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring is timely because it’s about not-terribly bright teenagers who are obsessed with fame and material possessions. Emma Watson plays “Nicki,” entirely based on Alexis Neiers, who spent one month in jail after robbing the homes of celebrities. (The real-life burglaries proved entirely too easy for the group of bored Hollywood kids, due to likes of Paris Hilton leaving the key to her house under a mat in front of the door.)

Watson as an entitled bitch with limited brain cells is a bit of a stretch, but she seems to do okay with the role in the new trailer.

The line “It all comes back to like, bad choices. Who you have as your friends,” is consistent with things said by Neiers on the reality show Pretty Wild, which chronicled her arrest, hearing and life at home with her two sisters and loopy mom who handed out five milligram tablets of Adderall at request.

Video: Emma Watson Slytherin On The Pole For ‘The Bling Ring’

Here’s a new clip from Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film, The Bling Ringstarring Hermione, Violet from AHS, Dana from The L Word, Judd Apatow’s wife and Gwen Stefani’s husband.

In the scene, the infamous burglars bust into a home that obviously belongs to Paris Hilton.

The other two girls try on lip gloss and shirts while Emma goes straight to the “nightclub room” for some pole dancing that I’m sure Ron Weasley would approve of.  Continue reading “Video: Emma Watson Slytherin On The Pole For ‘The Bling Ring’”

Trailer: This is the End (Red Band)

This is the End stars everyone who ever starred in a Judd Apatow movie (Rogen, Franco, Rudd, Segel etc.) plus Emma Watson and Rihanna. And all as themselves, interestingly.

I suppose this is so they can actually kill Michael Cera in a movie that seems to be about a party that takes place during an alien and fire-induced apocalypse. The stoners are left with duct tape, candy and cereal, which is all stolen by “Hermione,” as Danny McBride points out.  Continue reading “Trailer: This is the End (Red Band)”

Trailer: The Bling Ring

A photo of Emma Watson in character for The Bling Ring surfaced nearly a year ago. In a new teaser for the movie about the infamous group of Cali teens who almost got away with ripping off celebs like Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and Lindsay Lohan, Watson parties, drinks and makes provocative faces.

This is still worlds apart from, say, the bikini string-thing plot of Spring Breakers, where Disney stars like Vanessa Hudgens prance around naked for unproven director Harmony Korine.  Continue reading “Trailer: The Bling Ring”

Emma Watson’s Borderline Nip Slip At ‘Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ Premiere

Emma Watson suffered a slight wardrobe malfunction while walking the red carpet for the L.A. premiere of the highly anticipated teen dramedy The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

Her areola almost made an appearance as her thin skin-colored dress fell off her body. fortunately the classy British 22-year-old was wearing a nipple cover.

This is especially interesting because I was JUST reading the other day that Emma Watson is the “most dangerous celeb” to look up on search engines.

According to CNBC via reports from McAfee security, searches for the female protagonist of the Harry Potter series have a “12.6 percent chance of leading a user to a malicious website.” 

Translation: YOU WILL GET A VIRUS IF YOU LOOK FOR NAKED PHOTOS OF HERMIONE GRANGER. That includes the “Emma Watson nip slip” search that just led you to my site. Dun dun dun.

Did Emma Watson Walk Off The Set Of Seth Rogen’s ‘The End Of The World?’

No, Emma Watson didn’t walk off the set of the upcoming film The End Of The World written by Seth Rogen and starring him, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, and Michael Cera…

But SOMEBODY did. And I need help cracking the mystery of the primadonna actress. James Franco was conducting an interview with Mila Kunis when he told her:

“So a funny thing happened on this movie I’m doing down here in New Orleans that made me think of you. The movie is a comedy, but it’s kind of an outrageous one, and this actress – I won’t say who, but she had a smaller role in the film — walked off the movie in the middle of a scene.” Continue reading “Did Emma Watson Walk Off The Set Of Seth Rogen’s ‘The End Of The World?’”

Relax, Emma Watson Didn’t Dye Her Dog Pink

People who like to think of themselves as animal rights activists (really they donate $5 a year to the Humane Society) expressed concern over pictures of Emma Watson walking a pink Bichon Frisé in East London.

I’m with you on this one, I had no idea what a Bichon Frisé was despite my two years in dorky dog 4H. Wiki tells me that they are descended from Standard Poodles and Water Spaniels.

Canine lesson over, onto even less important things… The dog, Darcy, isn’t even hers. It belongs to America’s Next Top ModelBritish Invasion winner Sophie Sumner, a close friend of Watson’s. After the criticisms, Hermione wrote:

Emma Watson’s New Man-Meat, Johnny Simmons

Harry Potter star and England’s sweetheart, Emma Watson, has a new boyfriend! He’s that guy Chip from Jennifer’s Body oh and the guitarist kid from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Johnny Simmons.

He’s kind of understated, and perhaps boring, at least in those movies, but maybe he’s a nice guy? He’s 24, but uhhh looks 15? So there’s that. The two lover-vultures were spotted in Santa Monica, scarfing food and sucking face. (Not in that order or at the same time? Though who knows what they’re into)

They are set to star in the movie version of the controversial novel, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, controversial to parent-teacher groups that is. Because it covers topics like gay sex, drugs, alcohol and date rape.

Ummm I read it several years ago and don’t remember finding it controversial at all? But maybe that says something scary about my nature, or maybe these book-burning cougar Republicans need to find better things to do with their time than protesting items that could help their children LEARN about real life.

Anyways, happy trails, Emma Watson. I really liked Deathly Hallows Part 2 but was that a silent film for you or what?
