I remember saying to friends about 12 years ago, right after the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, that Emma Watson had a certain plucky magnetism. Almost a kind of attraction-that-dared-not-say-its-name (and no one did). She might still have it in a 20-something form. The Bling Ring should provide a clue, but I’ve sensed in recent years something a bit reluctant and recessive about Watson. I don’t get the feeling that she really loves the acting elixir.
The interesting thing about this clip is that you can taste the material euphoria. You know it’s pathetic but can feel it all the same. Here’s hoping there’s more.
