Hermione Has Grown Up!
Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson (born in Paris, France on 15 April 1990) was an unknown schoolgirl a decade or more ago when she was picked out of obscurity to star in the Harry Potter line of films. Now that she is all grown up and has left the child actress roles behind, Emma has branched out into a variety of different activities.
For instance, Emma took up modelling for Burberry in 2009. She continued her modelling career with People Tree. While continuing to act and receiving praise for her performances in such films as "The Bling Ring," Emma took on some responsibilities behind the camera as Executive Producer of "Queen of the Tearling," in which she stars as Kelsea Glynn.
While developing her Hollywood and modelling careers, Watson continues taking college courses when she has the opportunity.

Emma is an interesting person even aside from her fame as an actress. By all indications, she is a dedicated worker who goes the extra length to get things done. The story is told that one of the Harry Potter directors, Alfonso Cuarón, asked the three child leads of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" to write an essay about their Potter characters from a first-person perspective.
It was a fascinating idea, with great possibilities for posterity. Daniel Radcliffe turned in a neat, one-page response that directly answered the question. Rupert Grint didn't even complete the assignment. Emma Watson, the over-achiever, wrote a 16-page novel that not only answered that question, but probably half a dozen others as well and posed a few of her own.

This girl was admitted to Brown University, one of the most prestigious schools in the world. That doesn't just happen to your standard Hollywood wannabe. Clearly, Emma Watson was raised right.
Regardless of all that, fortunately for us it seems that Emma has a thing for leather. She is photographed in it all the time, which is a natural part of being a gorgeous model, but she wears it on her own time as well. Below is a sampling of shots of our Hermione at various ages, out and about in her fabric of choice, leather.

|A film set, "The Bling Ring" I believe.|
|An obvious advert shot. Emma looks great in the long leather coat and with the ginormous bag.|
|It's nice that big stars can still get out and about without too much bother.|
|Not the highest quality photo, to be sure, but it seems very genuine reaction shot.|

Emma Watson Wearing BootsWhile many of the above pictures show Emma wearing leather boots, here is a special section devoted to Emma and her love of boots.
|The lighter hair color goes well with her outfit.|
I hope my head doesn't get very big. I'm just going to keep my feet on the ground, stick to friends and family and try and lead a normal life.
|Very nice leather boots at the Kids Choice Awards.|
My friends are all really nice about my fame, they're just curious really, they ask lots of questions.

I get sent Bibles. I have a collection of about 20 in my room. People think I need to be guided.
If someone asked me to do something that was beneficial to a cause, then maybe I'd consider it, but not just [to be able to say] 'Look at me! I've got my own line!'
I could be 100 years old and in my rocker, but i'll still be very proud that I was part of the Harry Potter films.
It took me three films to get Hermione in jeans. To get out of the robes with the tights and the itchy jumpers. Whoo-hoo!
I don't date people who are famous. I don't think it's fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them.
In my downtime, I don't sex myself up much. Sometimes I have a hard time convincing directors that I can play adult roles.
Acting is telling the truth under imaginary circumstances. Also, I'm the worst liar ever.
I'm aware that I'm kind of a paradox, and at times a bit ill-suited to my profession. But there's something that brings me back. There's something in me that feels like I have to do this, that this is what I'm meant to be doing.
Don't feel stupid if you don't like what everyone else pretends to love.
