Did Emma Watson Cut Her Hair to Play 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'?

08/10/2010 at 02:05 PM ET


Emma Watson may have credited her dramatic new pixie cut to the end of the Harry Potter series, but now it seems that her freshly shaven do might in fact be for a new movie role. According to British paper The Sun, Watson is up for the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in the much-anticipated movie The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, based on the best-selling novel by Stieg Larsson. And while Emma’s Harry Potter character, Hermione Granger, was a girly wizard with wavy chestnut locks, Lisbeth Salander is a troubled computer hacker with spiky hair and tattoos. Watson’s role in the new flick has yet to be confirmed, but she certainly has some stiff competition: Kristen Stewart, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Scarlett Johansson and Zoe Saldana have all also expressed interest in the part—as well as a potential unknown. Whether Watson lands the gig or not, we think she can certainly pull off this chic gamine style. We can’t help but wonder who will be the next to shave it all off for this role! Tell us: Do you think Emma Watson’s should be The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? Vote below!
