Emma Watson Talks Short Hair at 'Harry Potter' Premiere

11/12/2010 at 10:06 AM ET


Emma Watson may be appearing in what is sure to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, but she’s still having to deal with a few mixed reviews — on her short pixie cut from earlier this year! “Generally the reaction’s been positive but it’s a bit of a shock for some people because it’s different,” Watson told reporters. The young star has admitted she chopped her hair off for the first time at 20 years old simply because she was allowed to, now that her time as bushy-haired Hermione Granger had come to an end. But what about taking that darling do bright red or platinum blonde? “I’m very into looking natural so probably not but never say never,” Watson demurred. One thing that is certain is the thrill of the first of the two-part finale hitting theaters. “It gets bigger every year. I can’t believe it. The adrenaline from doing this is pretty crazy,” Watson said. “I feel like I’m about to go over the top of a rollercoaster.” At least she has the stylish wardrobe part of the red carpet rush nailed down, looking perfectly fun and fashionable in her vintage black lace by Rafael Lopez for Atelier Mayer and Charlotte Olympia heels. Tell us: What do you think of Emma’s haircut? — Reporting by Simon Perry

Emma is what young Hollywood girls should aspire to be!

Well she used to look pretty with long hair, now she looks decidedly boyish.

One word…. STUNNING!

Love it, Emma! I have a pixie, have had it for decades and I get compliments ALL the time. And I never get told I don’t look feminine. Plus, my husband likes short hair on gals…guess I am lucky.

I can hardly blame her for chopping off her hair–she’s finally done with Harry Potter and ready to move on. She probably enjoys the anonymity that came following the cut. The cut itself is OK, but it will look cuter once it grows out a bit. I could see a nice swept bang with a shorter back looking amazing on her.
