The name’s Emma Watson and she knows how to cast a spell. She did it admirably in her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series where she was usually the one to remember her abracadabra in the times of crises. Emma’s not a hottie within reasonable imagination and that’s what qualifies her to be the thinking boy’s babe. I don’t know why it has to be this way. Why are hotties immediately bracketed as unworthy of nerdy consideration?
Of course, plain wholesome looks of a girl who still looks like she’s on the cusp of womanhood allied with a fortune of more than £10 million is a very strong qualification indeed to be there in most boys’ thoughts; thinking types or the fantasizing types.
A thinking boy in this case is a boy who goes on to become a thinking man, you know… the kind who digs arthouse cinema and can expound on socialism and the mating habits of the dung beetle. Okay, I know that’s exaggerated stereotyping but you get the idea. Here’s proof that the left side of Emma’s brain works differently from the ones possessed by the likes of Rihanna, Jessica Simpson, Li’l Kim, etc. Emma’s not yet twenty but already speaks of being unsure whether she really wants to continue acting. She’s contemplating taking up a university place at Oxbridge or an Ivy League college. Emma describes herself as a bit of a feminist and donates to the Wild Trout Trust (WTT).
