I wasn't always the biggest fan of Emma Watson
, mainly because the only thing I'd actually seen her act in were the HARRY POTTER movies and kick me if you must, but I found all of the ones I watched to be droll. I tried reading the books and just could not comprehend the pandemonium over them. (To my credit, I read the Twilight books and can tell you they are an abysmal blight on what people refer to as "literature.") But seeing this grown-up Emma, the one who goes to college and has her privacy respected by her fellow academics (in a world where people usually can't wait to tweet something scandalous), to read about her defending KStew and criticizing the without merit pitchfork carriers that there's no way they could understand what it's like to be a young person in the entertainment business (and it's Emma Fuggin' Watson, she knows
about this stuff) to see her wear her short hair with pride and, after a fashion, really rock the fug out of it.... I have grown to love perhaps not Emma Watson the actress, but Emma Watson the woman. I really need to watch THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER.
