The Perks of Being a Wallflower is this week’s Film Club pick! As it’s being touted as the flick in which Emma Watson will cast of the shackles of Hogwarts for good, we thought we’d celebrate a few reasons why we think she’s going to be huge:
SHE’S DEAD CLEVER When she wasn’t magicking up a storm on set, whizkid Watson must have been studying pretty hard. After scoring 8 A* and 2 A grades at GCSE and acing three A-Levels, she headed off to the US of A to enrol at swanky Brown University. She’s now finishing off her degree at Oxford and also, apparently, speaks great French…talent and brains? We’re a bit jealous (plus she’s younger than us!)
SHE’S ECO-FRIENDLY Worked with ethical fashion house People Tree for a couple of years between 2009 and 2011, before upping her fashion credentials substantially thanks an organic clothing collaboration with A-list designer Alberta Ferretti. Emma also visited Bangladesh last year to see how her clothes were made and to promote Fair Trade practices – we guess she’s just nice like that.
SHE HAS AWESOME ‘BROTHERS’ Back in 2000, Emma met the two guys who’d be her partners in Harry Potter-crime for the best part of a decade – Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. Now while adult actors often find themselves falling for their co-stars, the fact Emma was all of nine at the time probably put paid to that sort of thing. Instead, the Potter kids formed a sort of familial bond that they reckon will be with them for life. And how many people can say one of their brothers was Harry Potter and the other one owns an ice cream van? Not many, we reckon.
SHE WASN’T ALWAYS THIS COOL In the early days of Harry Potter, the teeny Emma ‘looked like a hamster’ (her words, not ours) and had the bad kind of ‘big’ hair. Not only that, but she also wore a bridesmaid’s dress to a film premiere, And something out of her mum’s wardrobe for a different one. Now she’s cool not only because she openly admits both those decisions were terrible, but that she doesn’t seem to care whether she looks good or not. She does, obvs.
HER FAVOURITE FOOD IS NUTELLA Any actress who willingly admits their favourite food is chocolate spread (and that they eat it out of the jar with a spoon) is alright by us.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is out now. Here’s the trailer:
But just what is this Film Club malarkey all about? It’s simples, really. Each week we send a pair of cinema tix (ODEON or Cineworld, whichever is best) to 10 of our most active Facebook/Twitter followers. We put the film we’re going to see to the vote, and the winning film is the one we all go to see. Then we all sit around on Facebook on the Sunday night (6.30) and chat about it. Magic. Sound like something you want to get involved with? Drop us a line at twitter.com/f_t_r_c or on Facebook at on.fb.me/d4dMv8
