When Watson went from being ‘Hermione’ to a hottie!

Sunday, November 28, 2010

LONDON - Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, has admitted that her new haircut was a symbolic gesture, to mark her leaving her character behind.

“I’m 20 now, so I’m not a child any more. I’ve been on Harry Potter for ten years now, so I felt the need to mark the end of it in some way - I needed some way to say to myself, ‘Right, you’re entering a new phase of your life now’. I needed a change, and that’s what the haircut is about,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

Soon after she finished shooting the final Potter film, Watson went to a hairdresser, handed him a picture of Mia Farrow and ordered him to get rid of her ‘Hermione hair’.

She said that her father was initially not thrilled about her new look.

“When I first told him that I was thinking about doing it, he said, ‘Don’t get carried away. You’re not Audrey Hepburn yet.’ But he loves it now, and so he’s eating his words,” Watson added. (ANI)
