In a move that's sure to traumatize all walks of Harry Potter fandom (especially hardcore fans who play Quidditch IRL), Emma Watson just threw shade at Hermione Granger.
The 25-year-old actress played Hermione for a decade, and a hallmark of her character—at least according to JK Rowling—is "lots of bushy brown hair." Watson's own locks had to look the part for Harry Potter's film adaptation, and apparently she wasn't on board.
"When I see the images again from the first Harry Potter I immediately think how bad my hair was," she tells Vogue Italia. "It is always surprising for me, to see how long this period of time is, where I have come and from where I started. It is pleasant to follow that journey."
Hermione is often lauded as a strong role model who doesn't care about her looks when there important things to think about (house elf emancipation, anyone?), but let's not forget that Emma Watson isn't her character. Guess she wants her hair to be on point just like the rest of us non-wizards—which, to be clear, does not conflict with her feminist values.
