We can understand why bossy little bookworm Hermione would have difficulty snagging a man, but Emma Watson? The 21-year-old actress behind the Harry Potter witch is smoking hot, plus she has money and fame. Oh, and she’s kinda smart.
Girl has it going for her. So what’s up with men dissing Em?
Intimidation is to blame, says Emma.
“I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me?'” Watson said in an interview with The Sunday Times, “They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimated.'”
Seriously, guys? We are so past the age when chaps couldn’t handle a successful woman.
Instead, Watson says prospective dates “feel they have to knock me down” by poking fun. “They know perfectly well who I am, but they’ll ask me, ‘How are the Narnia films going?'”
We hope Miss Emma isn’t taking these skanky guys seriously, but she is definitely no stranger to fame’s misfortunes. She already had to transfer out of Brown University because of her celebrity, claiming she was “in denial” of how famous she was.
If the stress of finals weren’t enough, E.W. admits she’s probably not the best person to be thrust in the spotlight.
“I’m shy, I’m sensitive and I’m self-critical,” says Em, “It’s a terrible combination.”
Maybe E.’s sensitivity is the cause of her remorse over her drastic hair change? Emma switched to a short ‘do shortly after wrapping the Harry Potter series, but now says the pixie cut makes it harder for her to land roles.
Looks like fame is wearing on the short-haired, single Emma. Couldn’t she call up Jodie Foster and ask her how she did it? The college, love and hair thang, that is.
