Emma Watson's Biggest Regret About Harry Potter

Emma Watson earned both fame and a rather impressive fortune, thanks to her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film franchise. She's gone on to star in popular movies like 2012's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, 2017's Beauty and the Beast, and 2019's Little Women — while also studying at Oxford along the way. Considering the fact that Watson's accomplishments have shaped quite an inspirational life, it seems safe to say that this is one woman who's aware of what it takes to become who you truly want to be.

"I think that it is very important if you know what you want, understand where you are heading towards, and try your best to get it," Watson once said, according to a Facebook post from the star. "It is only when we use our hearts to do it, and fall in love with what we are doing, then can we really get real determination."

Watson may be in love with what she does; however, it turns out there's one thing she wasn't terribly keen on when it comes to the very first Harry Potter film.

Emma Watson had one specific issue with Hermione Granger

When you watch the Harry Potter films, you're likely enthralled with Hermione Granger's mastery over magic and her hardcore dedication to her enchanted education as a student of (the sadly fictional) Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You may have also noticed that in the first movie Hermione had a slightly disheveled hairstyle that seemed to reflect the notion that she cared more about her studies than her appearance. 

However, when Emma Watson, who played the young spell caster, looks back at the film, it turns out that her hair is what she sees first. In fact, it's her major regret when it comes to the movie. "When I see the images of the first Harry Potter, I immediately think of how ugly my hair was," Watson told Vogue Italia (via Time) in 2015.

Thankfully for Watson, she's experienced a stunning transformation over the years. And frankly, according to the star, "feeling beautiful has nothing to do with what you look like," so perhaps she can look past her hair the next time she sees an early image of herself as the undeniably adorable Hermione.
