Emma Watson asked if she is a lesbian

Harry Potter star says her new short haircut led to questions

Emma Watson asked if she is a lesbian

Oscar nominee Michelle Williams has gotten raves for the pixie haircut she has had throughout the current awards season.

But when her My Week With Marilyn co-star Emma Watson cut off her long locks, instead of getting stye feedback, Watson said it led some people to wonder if she was a lesbian.

'I had journalists asking me if this meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now,' the actress – best known for her role in the Harry Potter films – recently told UK's The Independent.

'That haircut did make me realize how subjective everyone's opinion is,' she adds. 'Some people were crazy for it and some people just thought I'd lost my shit. All I can do is follow my instincts, because I'll never please everyone.'

Watson, who turns 22 in April, appeared in her first Harry Potter film as Hermoine Granger in 2001 and, along with Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, went on to star in seven more installments culminating in the final film released last summer.

My Week With Marilyn cast her as a wardrobe employee on the set of a film starring Monroe (portrayed by Williams).

It's a departure for the young actress who audiences have gotten used to seeing around Hogwarts with her long hair flowing as she, Harry and Ron get out of one jam after another.

For Watson, her short hair is an expression of her growing up.

'As I've got older, and since I cut all my hair off, I've felt a bit more liberated about trying different things out,' she said.

    These comments reveal the absurdity of the world….

    @ John Jones — I agree. Females in Hollywood with lots of money and too much time on their hands. Very bad combination. You haters can puke your resentment all you want. Doesn’t change neither John’s opinion or my own that when you have too much money and too much time, you behave stupidly as this young actress has displayed, but more importantly she displayed her immaturity, instead of maturity in her behavior. She’s still acting like a spoiled child. Bottom line. End of story.

    This is what happens when women have so much money they don’t need a man anymore. They get all wierd and pseudo lezbo. Other examples are Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Kardashians… Women and money don’t work well together. She needs a husband.

    John Jones !! My feelings are thee exact same as you! Plus…why would any young, pretty woman want to “butch” off their beautiful hair so they can look like a preteen boy! One of the lesbians in the couple feels the need to look like a boy.!! Our God above teaches us that being a lesbian is ‘Wrong!!” Any homosexual act is “Wrong!!” I believe “strongly” in our bible.and God’s word!! God says only HE will be the judge of us ALL…not me, not you, NOT anybody!! Plus…the bible says “Let he who is without sin, cast the 1st stone!” I sin everyday. I beg God everyday for his forgiveness for my sins! I try verrry hard to neverrrr cast ANY stones…especially neverrr the “First” stone!! John Jones…verrry well said!! Your words are perfect!! They are my thoughts for sure!! Thank you!! Eddie
