Emma Watson Mistaken For A Child By Airport Security, Here Are 25 Photos That Suggest Otherwise

Emma Watson mistaken for a child at the airport

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!

Enjoy A Little Faith In Humanity This Weekend: It’s A Celeb Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort Round-Up!

It’s on all of us to pitch in and aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but it touches a cold, hard part of our soul to see famous people step up and do what’s right following a tragedy. They just have so much more money than us! In addition to Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Sting and Billy Joel reminding America to have a heart via song at last week’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together telethon, plenty of celebs did their part this week. For example…

Emma Watson For Prime Minister! Perks Co-Star And Director Launch Her Campaign

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.”

Emma Watson Reveals The Key To Her Heart: Ignore Her And Wear Proper Shoes

In every interview of Emma Watson we’ve ever seen, the 22-year-old Perks of Being a Wallflower star is nothing but outgoing, cheery and warm. But it turns out that’s not necessarily what she’s looking for in a boyfriend. Or at least not what she’s used to looking for. On today’s Ellen, she talks about the difference between British and American boys. The British lads “dress really well and they are very well mannered,” she said. “But they are also very restrained. Usually in the whole courting situation, I‘m used to being first of all, ignored for the first two months of the ritual. And then maybe they’ll acknowledge my presence. Then, they’ll probably be a little mean to me. And then, maybe we’ll, you know … whatever.

“Then I arrive in America, and I remember a few nights into [attending] Brown, this guy just being like, ‘I like you. You’re great. Let’s go on a date. Let’s do it,’ ” Watson recalled. “I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, what just happened?’ This is like a huge culture shock for me. They’re very like open and very straight-forward.”

Black, White And Black-And-White Trend At The Elle Women In Hollywood Bash

Monochrome Trends At Elle Women In Hollywood

One black and one white have already landed on the worst-dressed list at the Elle Women In Hollywood party, thanks to Lea Michele and Julianne Hough. The rest of the monochromatic bunch did alright for themselves, thankfully. Emma Watson played it super safe, perhaps because she was picking up the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Spotlight Award. We’re assuming she’s wearing Calvin Klein! Elle Fanning shook things up as she usually does — we can’t believe we actually said that about a 14 year-old, but it’s true — in an edgy Calvin Klein dress and Dolce & Gabbana shoes and bag. Not many people could carry of that length, but Elle ends up looking coltish and youthful and pulls it off like a pro. We also can’t believe we’re saying this about a 12 year-old but we should get used to it because our favorite Kiernan Shipka is a sartorial star and didn’t disappoint at all in a gorgeous, age-appropriate Moschino dress. Is it wrong to want a 12 year-old’s wardrobe? We can’t help it — she always looks so wonderful!

Monochrome trends on Elle Women In Hollywood red carpet

We don’t want to rag on Uma Thurman because she just had a baby recently, so we won’t say much. But what we will say is that half-sheer skirts and lank hair don’t work on anyone. They wouldn’t even work on Jaime King, who is gorgeous and blessed with a body that comes around once every century or something. Luckily she went minimal and safe, like Emma, in pure white. We also think that Jenna Fischer‘s Basler dress, Cole Haan shoes and Lauren Merkin bag would have pulled together beautifully if she did something more exciting to her hair and face. A red lip wouldn’t kill her, right?

Sarah Jessica Parker Helms Elle‘s “Women In Hollywood” November Cover

You have to admit that Sarah Jessica Parker is looking pretty fierce on this November cover of Elle. Love her or not-so love her, you still have to admit that SJP really has the goods! That very sexy cut-out dress in Calvin Klein and the spectacular, almost tribal looking necklace is by House of Lavande, FYI. This cover story has also piqued our interest. It’s a “Women In Hollywood” section filled with stars like Emma Watson, Octavia Spencer and Elle Fanning, apart from Sarah Jessica, talking about their experiences in the industry. All styled to the nines of course! Emma, for instance, talks about her Harry Potter history, stating, “I just knew, from the moment I read “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” that I was meant to play that role…I put one of the Potter films on the other night.  And it was amazing to me that I had done all of that.  I have to remind myself every now and then.” Octavia’s story is a juicy one, as she talks about standing up to a powerful producer in H-Town, revealing, “Early on I had to stand up to a producer – I won’t say who, but he is famous, famous.  He dressed me down in a crowded office. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, ‘You don’t know me well enough to use that tone’…And then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby.  But he never addressed me that way again.  And he is known as a yeller.”

As for our cover celebrity, SJP brings up playing the character of “Carrie” on Sex And The City for so long. While wearing a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress and Casadei heels, of course. She  says she doesn’t want to repeat the same role in the future, with, “I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.” Apparently, there’s going to be a “Women in Hollywood” event mid-month too, so we’re going to keep our eyes peeled for that one.

Emma Watson’s 20 Looks That Would Make Hermione Granger Blush

20 Looks That Would Make Hermoine Granger Blush

Expelliarmus! There go Emma Watson’s clothes. Just kidding! But studious Hermione Granger would have her knickers in real twist if she caught a glimpse of what her real-life-counterpart has been rocking lately. The 22-year-old star has really been pushing the fashion envelope in recent years, appearing on the cover of styles mags like Glamour showing off her smoldering new look. Earlier this month, she attended the L.A. premiere of her new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower in a barely-there dress that was moments away from a “wardrobe malfunction.” She wears even less on the set of her new movie Bling Ring, where Watson rocks a fierce tramp stamp.

While we can’t deny that Emma usually keeps it classy, we love to see her show off her hot bod. She’s sure come a long way from Hogwarts! Even though the cape and striped tie may still work for Halloween, we prefer some of Emma’s bolder looks. So in honor of Emma Watson’s new film opening nationwide today, we give you her 20 scandalous looks that would make Hermione blush. Enjoy!

Tom Felton Turns 25! Celebrate With His 25 Most Handsome Looks

It’s a big weekend for vets of the Harry Potter series! Emma Watson’s new movie Perks of Being A Wallflower opened yesterday, and today Tom Felton turns 25! The little toe-headed kids we knew as evil Draco Malfoy has grown up into quite the handsome dude, showing up to red carpet events looking like a walking GQ cover. His latest film The Apparition scared the crap out of us in theaters last August, and it looks like his next movie Night Wolf will definitely do the same. What is it with this guy and freaky flicks, huh? Too many years hanging around with he-who-shall-not-be-named, we guess.

On top of his acting skills, Tom’s also a musician and songwriter. In 2010 he released a collection of original songs called In Good Hands. He’s also flexed his comedy muscle with appearances in Get Him To The Greek and British sketches alongside  Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Keira Knightley among many other famous faces. In honor of his quarter century on the planet, we’ve assembled his 25 most handsome looks of all time. Enjoy!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of our favorite movies of the year, chock full of teen angst, great music and stellar performances from the young cast.

Yes, you’ve got Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller and the most precious and wee Emma Watson. But there are more amazing discoveries to be made, like Mae Whitman‘s child star past and Paul Rudd‘s inability to age.

Perks Of Being A Wallflower’s Ezra Miller, Mae Whitman On How Cast “Fell In Love With Each Other”

Perks of Being A Wallflower cast

In The Perks of Being a Wallflower, an introverted boy named Charlie survives the hardships of high school by finding his place in a group of misfits. The magic of Stephen Chbosky’s novel and movie is that the warmth and spirit of these friends leaps off the page, making you believe in their relationships and feel like you too are a part of their quirky group. Miraculously, the same thing happens in Chbosky’s movie — and we think that’s due to his intuitive casting process which gathered a group of actors who became fast friends on the set in Pittsburgh.

“We sort of all fell in love with each other immediately and we still are to this day,” Mae Whitman, who plays Mary Elizabeth, told VH1 Celebrity. “I mean we spent every night together hanging out in hotel rooms and playing music and being loud and crazy. It was really like an experience of a lifetime for me. It was really amazing.”

Ezra Miller (Patrick) also told us about those afterparties. “The best times for me were in these stuffy hotel rooms where all of us would amass nightly and just play music and kind of lose ourselves in sound and in our relationships with one another,” he recalled.

That kind of instant friendship seems to be rooted in the fact that these were all people Chbosky himself clicked with right away. “We had auditioned two people for [Charlie], and [Logan Lerman] was the second one. Five seconds into the audition, and I knew he was the kid,” he told us. “I knew these characters so well, and I knew them from the inside out, far more than what I thought they looked like. When I sat down with Emma in NY I knew I met a kindred spirit and I knew I had Sam. And when I did the callback with Ezra over Skype, even though it was over Skype, I just knew I’d found Patrick.
