Based on the trailer that premiered during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards, the biggest perk of being a wallflower would be getting to hang out with Emma Watson and her perfect pixie cut. That prom scene! We swooned. We squeed. Joined by costars Ezra Miller and Logan Lerman, Watson sparkles as new friend/possibly requited crush Sam to Lerman’s titular wallflower. “And in this moment, I swear we were infinite,” his Charlie wonders aloud from the back of a pickup. Um, seriously. Never has driving into Pittsburgh looked so epic!
But we’re not just into the film for Emma’s crop, though that is 60% to 70% of why we love this trailer. We’re also into the sweet little nerdling romance! “Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we’re nothing?” Watson’s Sam wonders. “We accept the love we think we deserve,” Charlie tells her. Yup, we are already ready to tear up. “You see things and you understand. You’re a wallflower,” Miller’s Patrick proclaims. Sadly, all you wallflowers are going to have to wait until September 14 to see Emma in action, but boy, is our journal going to hear about this!

The 2012 MTV Movie Awards kicked off, quite appropriately, with an influx of vampires, witches, wizards and werewolves. We love how Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham, who was MTV’s style correspondent for the evening, seemed to be channeling old-school cult fave Elvira with her black gown — the deep-cut neckline and shoulder pads seemed more suited to a vampire than Bonnie the witch, and that slit invited her to strike an Angelina Jolie pose or two, which seemed like just the right tone for the night.
Also having fun with her outfit tonight is Emma Watson who posed in a short, swirly-patterned gray-purple-and-black dress by Tabitha Simmons before presenting the trailer for her upcoming Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Twilight star Nikki Reed was another early arrival, in a shimmery gold number, followed by the werewolf pack’s very own Julia Jones in an, em, eye-catching lime-green cut-out dress. Early contenders for silliest outfit of the show: the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, whose footy pajamas make us very curious about their set. Stay tuned for much more fashion commentary and news!
The Mayans predicted it centuries ago! You are going to see End of The World when it comes out next summer because it has each and every one of your favorite people in it! For example, Rihanna and Emma Watson were caught running in terror on the film’s set in New Orleans today, and we know how much you like them. Joining the ladies for their last fictitious moments on earth were Jonah Hill, Aziz Ansari, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Mindy Kaling, Michael Cera and a host of other celebrities you’d want to hold hands with as the moon crashes into the sea. We call Jonah and Mindy!
Actually, the way in which the planet meets its demise in Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut is still a mystery. According to Splash, while filming on the lawn of what is supposed to be James Franco‘s house (note: genius), “the cast were highly animated whilst following a marker that will later be transformed using CGI” into what we’re assuming will be your classic Death Meteor. Wait a minute…if the Mayans are right, we’ll never get to see this movie! That’s a deep cut, Mayans. We’re going to hope for your sake that you’re wrong, in case we see you in the afterlife…

We love that we’re far enough from the white-hot popularity of Uggs and Juicy Couture sweat suits for the combination of the two to signify a very, very particular kind of person. We love it so much. We also love the spoiled bad girl steez Emma Watson will apparently be rocking as a bougie thief in Sophia Coppola‘s upcoming The Bling Ring. “Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers : ),” the Perks of Being A Wallflower actress tweeted today, along with a snapshot of her fictional alter ego. We’re pretty sure…no…we’re positive we went to high school with Nicki…during which she nicknamed us “Dumptruck” and subjected us to a strict regimen of swirlies. Yeah, we’re pretty sure everyone went to high school with Nicki.
Nicki will be looting celebs homes as part of a teen burglary ring come 2013, alongside costars Erin Daniels, Taissa Farmiga and Kirsten Dunst; Leslie Mann will play her mother, a deeply unobservant woman consider the fact that her daughter is already sporting a tramp stamp. We’re also psyched to see the character Emma is portraying in Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut End of the World: herself. Haha, there’s no way fictional Emma Watson would jam our head in the toilet. We mean…hopefully we never have to find out…
We’ll give you the juice about who was at Coachella this weekend in a minute, but first we’d like to give props to the very lovely Emma Watson. It was her birthday yesterday and what better way to celebrate than at the festival? Actually, she did find a better way to celebrate — canoodling with a fine mystery man as you can see in the photograph on the left. Happy birthday, indeed. Next up, we got Katy Perry who has traded her bright blue Smurf hair for a darker black with deep purple highlights. She pulls off the hippie headband, doesn’t she? Someone else wearing said headband (with fewer clothes on) was Paris Hilton, who is now fully exploring her music festival avatar thanks to boyfriend, Afrojack.
Someone who really can’t carry off hippie, but is one regardless, is Vanessa Hudgens, who wore sheer thigh-highs for some odd reason. She attended the festival with boyfriend Austin Butler. Other couples included squee-worthy Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, Fergie and Josh Duhamel and Kate Bosworth with Michael Polish. Two faces we didn’t expect to see were Dylan McDermott and Pierce Brosnan. For the full list of expected and unexpected stars, get thee to the gallery below.

Emma Watson turns 22 today, but we still can’t help but want to pinch those grown women cheeks. The Harry Potter starlet exudes total adorableness. From her sleek cut to her polished threads, Emma is that pretty girl you always hated because you secretly wanted to be just like her. Can we blame all those screaming girls gushing tears when they meet her? Although Emma’s days of playing the smart and fearless Hermione have sadly come to an end, Emma’s career is still booming. The Brown University undergrad played the cute wardrobe assistant Lucy in My Week With Marilyn, a critically acclaimed film nominated for two Oscars. She’s got a lead in the much-anticipated Perks of Being a Wallflower, out in September. And the English beauty is currently switching gears to play bad-ass stick-up kid in The Bling Ring, scheduled to release in 2013. No matter the different roles Emma takes, she will always be that darling little lady we first met on the big screen in 2001. Let’s all wish Emma a big happy birthday with her 22 most adorable looks.

We never thought we’d be typing “Emma Watson” in the same sentence as the phrase “tramp stamp,” but it just goes to show you that The Secret totally works. Thanks, vision board! The Harry Potter star was sporting cut-offs, a leather jacket and bra top on the set of her upcoming comedy The Bling Ring, in addition to her massive lower back tattoo. Clearly the ink is faux, as the idea of Hermoine with a gigantic tramp stamp would make the universe collapse in on itself. Our universe, anyway.
Emma’s badass makeover is part of her role as one of several, as IMDB puts it, “fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.” We don’t know how Emma plans to escape the police in those zebra heels in the movie, which costars Leslie Mann and Kirsten Dunst, so we guess we’ll have to head to the theaters to find out. And to find out what that tattoo is even of. Is it a skull? Roses? A skull made of roses? At least it appears to be engulfed in flames and, really, what other kind of tramp stamp is there?

We all get how hard it must be for the stars of Harry Potter to find new and exciting roles after the end of their beloved franchise. And brava to Emma Watson for doing so in such a chic way two whole years ago. So it should be none too surprising that Daniel Radcliffe has finally changed up his ‘do. But it kinda is. We got so used to seeing Daniel’s straight hair with bangs — high off the ear, brushed down for Potter, brushed off his face to the side for real life — that it’s a shock to the system to see these photos of him on the set of Kill Your Darlings, in which he plays a young Allen Ginsberg. So much curly hair! Can it possibly be all his? He had a lot of 19th-century bangs and sideburn action for The Woman in Black, so it could be.
Here’s a little retrospective of DanRad’s hair for his various roles. Which is your fave?
And how happy are you that he’s playing Ginsberg in 1944, not the ’60s-era version of the poet most of us think of?

Usually we can’t stand celebrities who cannot get over how hot they are, but we’ll give Emma Watson a pass. Why? Well, um…because she really is that hot. What is she supposed to do, deny reality? Never walk in front of a reflective surface? Never sashay nor shante? The Harry Potter star instead worked it out like a 9-to-5 in a short, fiery red lace dress while on the red carpet of today’s Lancome and Emma Watson Pre-BAFTA party at The Savoy Hotel in London. We guess if your name is in the title of the event you’re attending, that’s more than enough reason to smize. So smize on, you minx.

The folks at Forbes certainly know what they’re doing. Usually, we turn to them for the big lists, like the Celebrity 100, the World’s Most Powerful Women or the Hip-Hop Cash Kings. But those take a lot of work, and sometimes, they just need something fast and easy (we’re just assuming here, ’cause you know, we’d never be so gratuitous about our lists). So, they do things like this week’s Hollywood’s Top-Earning On-Screen Couples, which is topped by Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, followed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
We’re very happy to see the Harry Potter and Twilight stars at the top of the list, natch. But it does feel a bit like the editors sat down and said, “What kind of list can we do that will feature the stars of Harry Potter and Twilight, and maybe also Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers?” They admit themselves that the whole thing is based on numbers from Box Office Mojo (the total earnings from movies with the stars as a couple from the last five years).
Still, here we are, looking at the list. So they’ve hooked us again! We’ll give you the full list below, but also we want to come up with some kind of challenge for the Forbes editors, just to make sure they stay on top of their game. Maybe the next feature should be something like America’s Highest-Grossing Puppet Shows or Top-Earning Subway Mariachi Groups. That‘ll take a little shoe leather.
