The influential pixie haircut of Harry Potter star Emma Watson didn’t just earn her talk from critics (both for and against the cut), it apparent led many people, journalists included to question her sexuality.
Watson spoke with U.K.’s Independent where she revealed:
“I had journalists asking me if this meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now … That haircut did make me realize how subjective everyone’s opinion is. Some people were crazy for it and some people just thought I’d lost my [mind].”
One thing is for certain, the actresses short haircut allowed her to show off more of her face as part of her Lancôme contract.
Emma Watson also admits:
“I was fully game for ‘Throw me in this, throw me in that … The press destroyed me over this Rodarte dress I once wore — it was bright blue with chains on it.” Still, she doesn’t consider the edgy look a mistake: “I loved it.”
The actress now says that perhaps she needs to tone down changes she makes to avoid talks of being a lesbian and for other reasons yet to be disclosed.
While she admits that the haircut might have been a mistake she also promises to continue pushing the fashion envelop where she calls herself “multidimensional.
What did you think of Emma Watson’s pixie haircut was it a nice change for the typically long-haired actress or a misfire that she’s not likely to repeat anytime in the near future?
