I’d like to make a personal true confession before I begin. While I was in high school, I resembled someone aged around 37. I routinely had fellow classmates coming up to me in the hallway showing me hall-passes because they thought I was a teacher. Needless to say, it was rough. So that’s why I feel for Emma Watson right now, who seems to be having the opposite problem. The lovely English rose was stopped at New York’s JFK airport by FSA agents who thought that she was a child!
The 22 year old scripted out the incident on her Twitter:
Passport control: ‘Unaccompanied minor?’ Me: ‘Sorry?’
Passport control: ‘Where is ur guardian?’ Me: ‘I’m 22!!!!!!!’ #neverwearingabackpackagain.
‘The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened.
Oof, tough break Emma! But we know from first hand experience, it can be a LOT worse. Trust us. But we bet that misunderstanding would never have happened if she showed up looking like she does in the very grown up pictures below!
