Emma Watson Rumors Smacked Down By Emma Watson, Hilariously

Emma Watson rumors have, of late, had the star reportedly interested in the much-anticipated screen adaptation of the hit fanfic Fifty Shades Of Grey — a novel based on a movie based on a book that starred her Harry Potter co-star Rob Pattinson and on-again, off-again love interest in real life Kristen Stewart, a friend of Watson’s.

Last week, rumors Emma Watson was keen to play the Twilight inspired BDSM submissive Anastasia Steele in the film version of the major bestseller began to circulate, and the tale grew legs and danced about the fangirlish corners of the internet — where speculation as to which actors would take on the roles of Steele and Christian Grey has been underway since the first indications a Fifty Shades Of Grey movie began to pop up.

But if you were hoping to see Emma Watson as Steele, don’t hold your breath — the Emma Watson rumors have been smacked down by none other than Watson herself, several times since the suggestion she’d be taking on a role on that side of the whip was floated on the web.

As we reported earlier, Watson was a bit annoyed at the rumors, saying back in July that she’d already grown tired of telling her buds that no, she wasn’t going to sign on to say “yes, master” and hadn’t any plans to in the future:

“I told them just because there are 60 articles on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s any less true than if there are three or four … The thing is I’m not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement.”

But Watson’s initial FSoG denial didn’t seem to stick — because the better part of a year later, Emma’s had to take to Twitter to again address the Emma Watson rumors about the eagerly awaited film.

Adorably, Emma Watson rumors were dispelled in a Saturday tweet in which the actress’ frustration was palpable — and Potter fangirls will most definitely hear this one in Hermione’s voice:

It gets better! In true Hermione fashion, Watson continues:

So even if the Emma Watson rumors aren’t true, there’s always something for fandom.
