Emma Watson On Short ‘Lesbian’ Haircut


Emma Watson told The Independent about her short haircut: ‘I had journalists asking me if this meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now. That haircut did make me realize how subjective everyone’s opinion is some people were crazy for it and some people just thought I’d lost my [mind].

On being blasted for her red carpet style: ‘I was fully game for ‘Throw me in this, throw me in that,’ The press destroyed me over this Rodarte dress I once wore, it was bright blue with chains on it. I loved it..

I have to be more careful with my look in everyday life. I’m a multidimensional person and that’s the freedom of fashion, that you are able to reinvent yourself through how you dress and how you cut your hair or whatever.’

    I think her hair-cut looks good on her and it was a smart move to be honest. With her long hair she would forever be Hermione or that girl from Harry Potter. But when she got her hair cut she was suddenly so different and it gave everyone a chance to view her as Emma not Hermione.
    It is a little sad for me since I’m a hard-core Harry Potter fan but I admire Emma for her decision. It was brave. I love how she is always true to herself. A very smart, admirable girl. Such an inspiration.

    I didn’t like the short haircut at all (for myself), but I admired her bold move to make her own name and separate herself from Hermione as soon as she could. it did give her a chance to be Emma, not Hermione, and that’s what she needed after over a decade of an identity. and even though I didn’t like the haircut (though I praise anyone who gets it; I feel you need all the confidence in the world to pull it off, something Emma definitely has), I love how her hair is now, growing out. it’s so cute, with its flippiness, layers and such. I love it, and I love her :)

    It would be hard to find someone classier than Emma Watson.

    i gotta say, i didn’t love the haircut when i first saw it, but she made it work. it’s just not a style i am a particular fan of but people need to do what they need to do to feel beautiful without the pressure of what others tell them, and i admire emma greatly because of that. as for that rodarte dress, i looked at pictures of her in it, and i think it looks beautiful. she’s really young in it, and if you look at it from far away, it looks like very little is left to the imagination in the chest, but close-up, it is obvious there is a nude color fabric lining the inside. it’s a very creative and fun dress.

    I loved her hair. It was the beginning of a new stage in her life, as well as the ‘goodbye’ to Hermione Granger.
    The girl had the same hair style for over 10 years, so her haircut was bold and cute.

    It’s sad that journalists actually asked her that because society is so close-minded that they think having short hair means you’re a lesbian. Even if she were, it shouldn’t matter. I think the hair cut represented her growing up and leaving Harry Potter behind.
