Emma on Marie ClaireThe charming Emma Watson graces the cover of Marie Claire. She is plugging the end of the Harry Potter film series and her departure from a role she has played since she was like 8 by looking like an adult movie star (the good kind not the porno kind) on a woman's magazine. The beautiful Emma, who shows off her gorgeous pixie haircut and channels a young Mia Farrow, opened up to the mag about enjoying her time as a student at Brown University, the haircut and her need to not rebel.
On her hair: ? I? ve wanted to do it since I was about 16, and when Harry Potter ended in June, I just needed a change ? Watson said. ? It was quite symbolic for me. It? s very short; it was buzzed at the back and on the sides. And it? s really liberating that I can walk out without thinking about it.?
On being a student in America: ? The first year at Brown was about finding my feet,? she said. ? I found a great group of girlfriends, and now that I know how things work and what the professors expect, I? m really excited about going back for my second year, because I feel this time I can relax and enjoy it.? Watson is deeply grateful for the way she? s been treated by her peers. ? Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me,? she said. ? They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I? m part of it. I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn? t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I? d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.?
On not needing to rebel: ? I do things in my own way, but I? ve never felt any need to rebel,? she said. ? To be honest, I? ve always had far too much freedom. I had a job when I was 10. I started living on my own when I was 17 or 18. I? ve earned my own money; I? ve traveled the world. What would I rebel against? I? ve had so much freedom, sometimes it was hard. My parents wanted to protect me, but they had no idea how to. I had to learn as I went and make my own mistakes. I went from being totally unknown and never acting professionally to being in a major movie and being very famous. It all happened so quickly, I didn? t have any time to work things out. It? s been pretty scary at times.? Emma in MCEmma in MC
