Emma Watson is 23 today! Whoo!!
And she totally deserved it!
Back in 2001, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone premiered… and a superstar's career was born! We know it might have seemed a bit intimidating at first…
And by the time Chamber of Secrets rolled around, we're sure the work load got intense…
But it was a great learning lesson for lil' Emma. She was clearly coming into her own…
Cuz when Prisoner of Azkaban came out, it wasn't all about Harry anymore. Emma was showing girls everywhere that Hermione could kick just as much ass as the boys…
Get 'em Hermy! Get 'em!! GIRLLLL POWAHHH
And as Emma grew, so did Hermione. Girl knew how to GET DOWN in Goblet of Fire!
Then, in The Order of the Phoenix, Emma's true wings rose from the ashes (of her youth) as she emerged a powerful, young woman…
Now, after OOTP, Emma stretched her legs in Ballet Shoes before the next Harry Potter film came out. And let's just say… you thought she was feisty before? She was gettin' PRET-TY sassy at this point!
But she kinda had to be. Especially since The Half-Blood Prince was coming up next in the HP franchise. Gurl had to stretch those acting chops for what laid ahead!
Yeah… pretty intense now… (but Dumbledore wants to make a Birthday shout-out)
Ahem… *sniff* MOVING ALONG!!
When Deathly Hallows (Part 1 & 2) stormed into our lives, we knew Emma was going to be around for a loooong time after that. Her star power was undeniable.
Oh yah! We were holding tight too! So many tears!
Soon the tears would dry though, and My Week With Marilyn would come out, cementing her presence in the Hollywood glitter…
But it was The Perks of Being a Wallflower that really rang a bell in everyone's ears, alarming the world of her talent and dedication to making great films.
Moving forward, she wanted a challenge.
Now The Bling Ring doesn't come out until June 14, but the pole-dancing teaser has us TOO excited about what's next in the career of Miss Emma, as she plays the (pretty) WILD CHILD of the infamous Hollywood Burglar Bunch…
GET IT GURRRLLLL
Yeah we bet you're wanting even more of Emma now, LOL!
Don't worry, we have an encore performance — she's gonna be in the star-studded This Is The End too!
So much talent! So much beauty!
HAPPY BIRRRRTHDAY, EMMA!!
HERE'S TO MANY MORE YEARS OF SUCCESS!
