Emma Watson has finished wrapping the Harry Potter series, arguably the most influential young adult series of all time and the highest-grossing film franchise of the last decade.
So what’d she do to celebrate? She has shorn off all of the luscious, tangled locks that catapulted her to international fame as Hermione. Shorn them right off, and probably donated them to an environmentally or socially conscious charity. Which brings us to a number of points. Firstly – now nobody can deny the striking resemblance between her and noted evolutionary biologist and rabble-rouser Richard Dawkins. They’re practically the same person. In fact, if Emma herself had a proclivity for performing magic, it’d be safe to assume that they are the same person, carrying out an agenda for an unknown influence. Secondly, now Emma Watson looks like Mia Farrow, star of Rosemary’s Baby and Woody Allen’s nightmares. And Mia Farrow is incredibly attractive. Thirdly, it might be a backlash for losing a Burberry contract to the new star of Transformers Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, owner of the world’s most British name and boyfriend, Jason Statham.
But for now, you can just enjoy pictures of her and her pixie-locks. You might not find her acting in other prominent projects ever again, so just stare and enjoy.
