We here at VH1 are maybe getting a little election weary, so we decided to spice things up a bit in the last stretch before November 6. Our own Kate Spencer started asking stars at last week’s Hollywood Awards to nominate each other for office, and we absolutely love the response she got from The Perks of Being a Wallflower writer/director Stephen Chbosky and star Ezra Miller.
“You know, believe it or not, Emma Watson,” Chbosky said, nominating another of his Perks stars.
“Emma Watson is such a good choice!” Miller agreed. “I think she would be a brilliant diplomat or something. She’s an incredibly brilliant communicator, incredibly compassionate, too.”
“This is not red carpet stuff,” Chbosky assured us.
“Man, but she couldn’t be president ’cause she wasn’t born here,” Miller noted. But Chbosky reasoned, “Prime minister! There are other countries.”
So the two agreed, Emma Watson for prime minister in 2032, giving her a little more time to finish Brown and get that whole acting thing over with.
“This is an official nomination!” Miller declared. “Two random dudes say it on VH1. That’s how it starts, factually.”
We hope Emma doesn’t mind!
