Emma Watson Stopped at Airport for Looking Too Young to Travel Alone
Actress laughs off incident on Twitter, it goes viral in just hours
Emma Watson is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses of her generation (as per her own fans and industry publications) but, according to a new report, she’s also one of the youngest looking.Though she’s 22, the gorgeous “Harry Potter” star was stopped at JFK at passport control because the officer thought she looked too young to be traveling alone.
Emma herself recalled the incident on her Twitter page before Christmas but, for some reason, it’s just now that’s gone viral, attracting the attention of the mainstream media.
“Passport control:‘unaccompanied minor?’ Me:‘sorry?’ Passport control:‘where is ur guardian?’ Me:‘I'm 22!!!!!!!’ The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened,” Emma wrote before she got started her Christmas holiday.
The New York Daily News confirms that this happened as the star touched down at JFK for the holiday.
Even though she might look like a child when she’s traveling, Emma admits in her brand new interview with Marie Claire that she’s done a lot of growing up as of late.
She admits to being a workaholic and perfectionist, but stresses that, with her, friends and family always come first no matter what.
“Friends and family come first and work comes second; that’s just how I live my life. Now I feel a lot more settled in who I am and what I think and how I want to do things. And because I feel good about what I’m doing, I don’t need anyone else to say whether they think it’s good or not,” Emma says for the women’s publication.
In the same interview, she also talks about still not being able to be fluent in French even though she was born in Paris, her work ethic and how she’s actually her worst critic in everything she does.
