Like Christopher Reeves (Superman) and Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal Lector) before her, Emma Watson will be forever remembered, no matter what parts she chooses in the future, for her star-making turn as smarty pants Hermione Granger in all seven record-breaking “Harry Potter” films. She was handpicked to audition from a school assembly in 1999 and the then 9 year old daughter of two attorneys landed it after 9 callbacks. It wasn’t until 2007 that she performed in non-“Potter” projects, namely a BBC adaptation of “Ballet Shoes” and the animated comedy “Tale Of Despereaux.” The burgeoning “it” girl became both a spokesmodel for Burberry and a Brown University coed in 2009. (She graduated in 2014 with a degree in English Literature after also spending a long stint abroad at Oxford University.) Once the kid wizard franchise was finished, she moved on with coming-of-age fare “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” and “The Bling Ring,” played herself in “This Is The End” and went on a boat with Russell Crowe in “Noah.” Although her first crush was on Tom “Draco Malfoy” Felton, she has mostly pursued non-actors as romantic partners including financier Jay Barrymore (seven years her senior), One Night Only frontman George Craig, Oxford student Will Adamowicz and her current squeeze rugby player Matt Janney. The exception was “Perks” costar Johnny Simmons who she dated in 2011.
