Celeb crushin’: Emma Watson

It’s hard to believe that British actress Emma Watson, whom we were first introduced to as Harry Potter’s brainy friend Hermione Granger on the popular movie franchise, turns 25 tomorrow (April 15).

Much like the character she played for a decade, Emma is intelligent, talented, beautiful and successful… in short, the perfect woman and everything we aspire to be. And it’s not just us females who think so, she recently topped AskMen’s Top 99 Most Outstanding Women of 2015 list. In celebration of her birthday, we look back at some of our favourite Emma moments. Enjoy!

When she got face palmed by Jennifer Lawrence

We were thrilled just looking at photos of two of our favourite heroines, Katniss Everdeen and Hermione, hanging out and goofing around at the Dior show in Paris last July. Then Jennifer Lawrence face palmed Emma.

Being the cool chick that she is, Emma took it like a champ and laughed it off, and that just made us love her even more. And we were not the only ones. "Jennifer Lawrence Face-Palmed Emma Watson" became the No. 1 trending topic on Facebook the next day.

When she sexed it up for The Bling Ring

This provocative dance scene by Emma in Sofia Coppala's The Bling Ring was all anyone could talk about when the movie trailer was released.  Watching her lick her lips suggestively as she grinded in the nightclub scene (she also pole-danced in the movie), we all agreed that Emma had left Hermione behind.

When she wore pants with an evening dress

Emma almost always nails it on the red carpet but this bold backless Dior dress that she wore to the 2014 Golden Globes has got to be one of her most unforgettable looks, at least in our books.

Business at the front, party at the back, the dress looks simple, yet daring at the same time. And we love how Emma kept it PG by wearing it over cropped black cigarette pants. Oh well, she could have worn a potato sack and still looked hot!

When she dated a Prince … in gossip land

We squealed with excitement when rumours swirled in February that Emma was secretly dating the very hot and eligible Prince Harry.

Not only do they make an adorable twosome (we would totally ship them), they would be the ultimate goodwill power couple! And Emma would have lived all of our dreams if she became a witch and a princess.

Pity they were all but rumours. Oh well, Emma, you’re already a princess in our hearts!

When she declared herself a feminist

Playing a feminist character for ten years on Harry Potter has probably rubbed off on Emma because she became a UN women’s rights ambassador and works on its gender equality HeForShe campaign.

Standing up for what she believes in is her passion and in her speech at the HeForShe launch last year, Emma emphasised that feminism is about gender equality, not man-hating.

"I am from Britain, and I think it is right that I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body," she said. "If men don't have to control, women won't have to be controlled."

You said it, girl!

And speaking of the HeForShe campaign, did you see the note Emma wrote Oscar nominee Steve Carell who sported HeForShe cufflinks at the Academy Awards?

While it was sweet of her to personally write the thank you note (great penmanship too, by the way), we thought the highlight was when she said she “wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love”.

Yeah, we know Emma was on her school’s dance team but we weren’t quite expecting the moves she taught host Jimmy Fallon on his chat show. Think Dirty Dancing lift and jazz hands. Geeky, but oh, so charming!

When she chopped off her locks

Some thought she looked like a boy, others thought it was her way of coming out of the closet. But we thought Emma looked super chic when she debuted her Mia Farrow-esque pixie crop in 2010.

Turns out she just needed a drastic change after Harry Potter and had been dreaming of chopping her locks for years. She described the move as “liberating” and “incredible”, and she looked it. So Emma, when are we going to see another head turning short do on you again?

When she painted this self portrait

Yes, you read right. This beautiful piece of wall art is actually a self-portrait by Emma when she was studying painting at Brown University. Impressive, huh? Even art critics think so.

So not only is she smart, talented and gorgeous, she’s also an artist. Some girls just have it all!
