Who is Emma Watson ?
Emma is a 24-year old British actress, model, and activist. She is most recognised for her appearances in the Potter film series (2001), The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), Shakespeare in Love (1998), and the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, in which she played Belle (2017).

For much of her career, Emma has sought to distance herself from her famous family. But when she hit puberty, it became apparent that this wasn’t going to be possible. Emma endured a decade of unwanted attention as well as cruel tabloid stories. However, things eventually calmed down for a few years before starting to resurface again during 2017. When rumors started circulating about some new celebrity tape in early October, one person said he was shown explicit images purportedly featuring Emma Watson by an anonymous source who is distributing them online. Her team have called these ‘fake photos’ – saying they are not of Emma at all – but then why would her representatives deny such explicit images existed?

|Boyfriend / Affairs||Brandon Green|
Some details are known, some are speculation. We know that Emma married an unnamed British businessman, 23 years her senior, in December 2009. They live in London with their son, who was born in February 2012.
What we don’t know is what’s happening now or where they are currently staying. Rumors about the couple have been all over the place for a long time now with some speculating that they are back together while others say she left him after he cheated on her with a nanny! No one really knows what happened because neither Emma nor her estranged husband has spoken out about it.
The Early Years
Born in Paris, France, Emma is fluent in English, French and Italian. Her mother works as a designer and her father works in the art industry. They divorced when she was little but still talk to one another regularly. Emma attended a strict British girls’ school with an all-female teaching staff where she achieved top grades. With continued hard work, Emma attended Brown University in Rhode Island where she took up philosophy before enrolling at Oxford to study classical civilizations, graduating with first class honors in 2014.
The Famous Years
By 2008, she was on-set with three of the biggest male actors in Hollywood. Emma followed up her great work on that thriller with a remarkable performance in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2011) as Hermione Granger at age eighteen. When that series ended, Emma reprised her role for Warner Bros’ prequel film Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (2016). The studio is now set to make five more movies. We’ll have to wait and see if Emma will reprise her role as Hermione in them.
The power couple disbanded amicably in 2013 when they jointly announced their decision to separate, but that didn’t stop tabloids from implying something had gone wrong between them.
It seems as if Emma is just like every other girl her age. She loves make up, style, looking good, having friends and family to share with, but most importantly living life. Yes she has it all now but her past says otherwise. Born in Paris to British parents Chris (a successful businessman) and Jacqueline ( a well-known therapist), she had a somewhat normal childhood until the age of nine when their family relocated to Oxfordshire in England where they remained for nearly five years. Then came Hollywood at 12 when she landed her first gig on ‘The Thirteenth Year’ an American science fiction drama that filmed in Florida.
In the future, Emma may take on more roles in Hollywood, produce films, or tackle even more humanitarian projects around the world. She could also run for public office. The possibilities are limitless.
Favourite and Beloved Things
Out of all her interests, Emma is mostly known for being a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. She has also served as a voice for gender equality in her campaigns like HeForShe. If you follow Emma on social media you might have noticed that she is an animal lover with a dog named Stanley whom she takes everywhere she goes. Aside from dogs, she has a lot of tattoos, but nothing too extravagant or noticeable. Her favorite TV show is Jane The Virgin but music is one if her first loves which speaks volumes to some of her most favorite artists like Chance the Rapper, Frank Ocean, and Tame Impala.
