We don’t know the spell to summon a cake, so let us just play it safe and say Happy Birthday! Emma Watson turns 25-years-old on April 15, 2015. In just a quarter of-a-century, Emma has accomplished more than most get done in a lifetime. Let’s help honor Emma’s special day by taking a look back at her amazing year!
Emma Watson’s Birthday: ‘Harry Potter’ Star & Activist Turns 25
Wow! Over the last twelve months, Emma has done a lot of good while looking good!
She kicked off her fashionable year with a stunning appearance on the cover of the April 2014 Elle Australia issue. Emma sported a sleek retro look, invoking 1950’s glamour on this modern day starlet.
If there’s one thing that could top dinner with the British Monarchy, it had to be this: graduating from Brown University! Emma completed her degree in English Literature on May 25, 2014. Congratulations to Emma!
While at the July 2014 Dior fashion show in Paris, Emma looked fierce, as usual. Suddenly, her friend Jennifer Lawrence came up and face-palmed her! Was it good fun or bad taste? Either way, these two seemed to get a laugh out of it.
Arguably Emma’s biggest moment of 2014 came in September. Emma was appointed a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador. She then delivered an intense speech on ending gender inequality throughout the world. Along with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Emma helped launch the HeForShe campaign with the goal of including more boys and men in the fight for equality.
Emma also campaigned for HeForShe at the 2015 World Economic Forum on January 23, 2015. Emma reported the positive initial response to the program, before stressing the need for additional efforts to end gender inequality, once and for all.
Emma’s HeForShe work reportedly led to an interesting event in her love-life. While she was being honored for her humanitarian efforts at the British Fashion Awards in December 2014, Emma seemed a bit star-struck by the award’s presenter, Harry Styles. Fans nearly exploded at the thought of these two adorable Brits dating. Their wish was granted, because Emma and Harry allegedly went on a secret date later that month.
While Emma and Harry ultimately didn’t work out, she reportedly went from British Music Royalty to actual British Royalty, as she and Prince Harry were reportedly dating. Emma went on to dispel these reports, saying that she doesn’t need a Prince in order to be a Princess.
2015 holds a lot of potential for Emma. In addition to her ongoing humanitarian work, she’s starring in two movies set for release this year: Colonia and Regression. Emma’s role in Regression is a drastic step away from the Harry Potter world, as she plays a girl who has been sexually abused by her father.
Still, there’s some fantasy in Emma’s professional life. She will play the role of Belle in the live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty & The Beast!
