No, the fact that Justin Bieber’s, Jennifer Aniston’s and Emma Watson’s haircuts were the most searched-for haircuts of 2011 is not Earth-shattering news by any means. What we do find entertaining, however, is the fact that Google seems to have taken a lot of time measuring something like this. Click around the site’s 2011 Zeitgeist feature and you’ll find all sorts of not-very-shocking info (Bieber is the most-searched person, Rebecca Black is the fastest rising, Kim Kardashian and William and Kate had the most popular weddings, etc.) laid out in very nifty-looking bar graphs. This is the perfect toy to play with as we wait out our office-party hangover. If that seems like too much math for your foggy brain, just click through our gallery of the year’s top 10 celebrity haircuts, according to the Zeitgeist.
Earlier today we wrote about Dudley O’Shaughnessy being too busy to date Rihanna, the Sexiest Woman Alive. And right now we’d like to expand on the theme of D-list dudes dumping their lovely A-list ladies. Emma Watson’s former flame Francis Boulle has recently opened up about why their relationship never blossomed, and as you might have expected, it’s not her- it’s him. The two met at the Cartier polo party in 2008, but the thought of being outshone by the Harry Potter star didn’t sit well with Francis, who at that time was an aspiring actor.
“We had a bit of a thing a while back,” he explained to Heat Magazine, “but I have always been an ambitious person and I want to achieve my own notoriety for what I’ve done.” Well congrats Francis, because we think you just did. “I chose not to pursue it any longer because I didn’t want to be the boyfriend of some child actress.” And that’s why he decided to split with the beautiful, talented, rich and famous Ivy league student. At least you can never accuse him of being a star f–ker, right? Luckily good things have come to both since the split. Emma’s moved on to dating her Perks of Being A Wallflower costar Johnny Simmons, and Francis has moved on to doing reality TV, where everyone’s a star. Kinda like porn.
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve assembled some of Emma’s least child-actressy (read: HOT) looks in the gallery below. Enjoy!
Ever the red carpet darling, Emma Watson showed up to the GQ Men of the Year Awards in a super glam plaid prom dress by McQ. She sex’d up the look with studded pumps and a black biker jacket. We think the British starlet pulled off the tartan look swimmingly.
Other hits of the night were Daisy Lowe in a fishtailed, backless lace gown and Bradley Cooper in one of his trademark tuxedos. Leona Lewis looked stunning enough that we’ll forgive the fringe at the bottom of her white frock and in an unusual turn of events, Charlize Theron flopped in dowdy wide-legged gray trousers. Check out their looks, as well as Kylie Minogue, John Legend and Tinie Tempah, below.
The new Emma Watson’s Lancome commercial has a whole lot of interwoven messages we’re still trying to decode. Are we supposed to think that, if we buy Trésor Midnight rose perfume, suddenly we’ll be able to pull off a fedora and pixie cut while magically seducing bookworms? Or will shy bookstore clerks see this ad and frantically start spritzing the air with it, in the hopes that their own tie-wearing gamine A-list actress will stop by, forcing them to sprint down the river to catch the last light-up gazebo barge as it leaves town? Also, and we could be wrong here, but…Emma’s fedora is made of magic, right? It is, isn’t it? Well-played, Lancome. Well-played.
We’d like to give a short, non-sarcastic round of applause for Emma Watson’s enrollment at Oxford: the woman might be a 21-year-old movie star with millions of dollars in the bank, but she is still dead-set on getting that college degree. Eventually. “I’m still a student at Brown, Emma confirmed while making the round at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 premieres. “It’s just that I’ll spend my third year abroad – at Oxford. Then I’ll return to Brown to complete my last year.” That is, unless some other amazing film role pops up in the meantime, for which there is a 1,000% probability that there will be.
Watson put college on hold this past spring to work on The Perks of Being a Wallflower, while denying that bullying had anything to do with her decision to leave. We completely understand Emma’s decision to head to Oxford, though. What’s more important: starring in that Beauty and the Beast movie we’re already dead-set on seeing, or taking Intro To Statistics? Oh no…when we put it that way, our argument just starts to disintegrate!
Seeing as how she’s both a mega-babe and well-versed in fantasy movies, casting Emma Watson in The Beauty and the Beast movie seemed like a no-brainer to us too. Producer Denise Di Novi said today at a press junket for the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love that she is currently in the process of developing a live-action take on the fairy tale. Di Novi says she has both Pan’s Labyrinth‘s Guillermo del Toro signed on to direct and the Harry Potter star ready to play the lead. No word on whether or not Angela Lansbury will return to reprise her role as a talking tea pot. In not, Mrs. Potts is a role Betty White was born to play.
Seeing as how we have a Sleeping Beauty flick and two Snow White movies coming out in the next year or so, it only makes sense we’d be seeing more and more celebs transforming into fairy-tale princesses. Maybe Lady Gaga for the Little Mermaid reboot? Too soon? On to the bigger question: now that we know Watson will be the lead, which actor would be right to play the Beast?
Awwww, you guysssss! We’re getting down to the last couple Harry Potter premieres we’ll ever get to see, and we can hear the sobs of Potter-Heads and apprentice wizards all over the world. It feels like graduation day or something (can someone please cue up that Vitamin C song?).
The cast was in full-on premiere gear at the red carpet event today. Redhead Rupert Grint was dapper in his dark suit, Helena Bonham Carter was straight out of old Hollywood in a floral cap and bad-ass shades and Daniel Radcliffe looked like he raided his How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying wardrobe in a 60s-inspired three piece ensemble. But Emma Watson totally stole the show in an Oscar de la Renta dress that would put Cinderella to shame. We can’t handle the number of her squee-inducing poses in the gallery below. Can you?
It looks like all of that Hermoine/Draco fan fiction you’ve been slaving over for the past ten years was thisclose to playing out in real-life, as Emma Watson’s Tom Felton crush gets revealed in her new Seventeen interview. The Snape/Hagrid stuff…not so much. “He was my first crush,” Watson says about her fellow Hogwarts student. “He totally knows. We talked about it — we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.” Sure, Felton laughs about it until Watson’s out of earshot, then weeps with regret under a pile of old Sorting Hats in the prop closet.
TheHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 actress says her “huge crush” on Felton faded away after the first two Harry Potter films, but Emma Watson’s dating life still has her figuring out how to find the next malevolent wizard of her dreams. “I’m so impatient – It’s one of my worst traits,” Watson says. “If I want to see someone, I want to see them, and if I don’t, then I don’t. My friends are always telling me I have to play hard to get because I’ll pretty much say to a guy, ‘I like you – let’s go hang out.’ But my friends are like, ‘You can’t do that! You have to string this guy along. It’s a nightmare.” Sure, but not so much of a nightmare as realizing that you missed the chance to make the romantic fantasies of millions of fans comes true. Alan Rickman and Robbie Coltrane, there’s still time for you to make it work!
While Emma Watson’s Vogue cover might make the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part II star seems like just your regular ol’ beautiful billionaire, inside that gorgeous wealthy shell is a human being just like your or us straining to break free. Well, like you or us if we were either good-looking or rich. “I have had no control over my life. I have lived in a complete bubble,” the actress says about her Harry Potter days in the interview. “They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.” Oh Emma. If only she could know the real freedom that comes from using public transportation, or buying clothes than are worth less than most people’s monthly income. Having an old man fall asleep on you on the bus is the stuff real life is made of!
“I have felt for the last ten years I have had this battle; I’ve been fighting so hard to have an education. It’s been this uphill struggle,” Emma says, with regards to her decision to study briefly at Brown University. “I was Warner Bros.’ pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult.” As Watson explains, “I have to really enjoy the good things because it makes the bad things OK.” It’s a good thing she has literally tens of millions of good things to enjoy.
