Would you believe I finally, finally saw The Perks Of Being A Wallflower the other night? That movie had been on my watch list for ever and I was so excited to just sit down and see what it was all about. Ultimately, I think my expectations were a little high, but I still really enjoyed the movie. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend. It takes a very interesting approach to the traditional ‘high school sucks’ narrative, and if you’re a fan of Emma Watson you’ll probably enjoy watching her take on a role worlds away from Hermione. Emma’s becoming quite the little fashionista in her own right, and she recently scored the cover of Teen Vogue. Click inside for more!
Emma Watson for Teen Vogue:
One thing about Emma Watson: She has never been arrested. Nor, so far as anyone knows, has she ever eloped, been kicked off a movie set, or unleashed an angry rant on Twitter. Under normal circumstances, none of this would be particularly noteworthy. But Emma, 23, doesn’t live under normal circumstances, and she hasn’t for a very long time. Instead, the Paris-born, Oxford-raised actress is a self-made young Hollywood success, and more to the point, she is exceedingly famous thanks to a decision she made when she was only nine (and, of course, the dozen-odd years of hard work that followed).
“I think, in a way, I was very protected during Harry Potter, because I was working all the time,” Emma muses, taking a sip of tea. Dressed in a pair of dusky gray jeans, two layered cotton T-shirts, and a chic black blazer, she’s sitting in the corner of a posh but deserted hotel restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, open just so we can conduct the interview for her fourth Teen Vogue cover. “I would get in the car, go to the studio, and go home,” she says. Whenever possible, she continued to attend school and hang out with her childhood friends.
As a result, Emma explains, it took an improbably long time for her to understand how unusual her existence had become. It wasn’t until she enrolled at Brown University, in 2009, that she began to grasp the enormity of her renown. “It sounds stupid,” she admits, “or completely unbelievable, but that was when I really realized that I was famous. There are still days when I deal with it horribly and there are days when I deal with it really well.” She felt as though everything had been “turned upside down.”

Even though I never got into the Harry Potter films (really, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower was my first experience with her acting), I dig Emma. She seems to really be about her business when it comes to acting. Truth be told, I think this is something that’s more specific to actors from across the pond. Anywho, I gotsta see The Bling Ring next!
