Emma Watson hides hand written notes for lucky London commuters

She’s a successful actress, outspoken feminist and proud bookworm, but did you know Emma Watson is also a total sweetheart?

The Harry Potter star has surprised fans with handwritten notes hidden inside copies of Maya Angelou’s autobiography, Mom & Me & Mom, which she placed along the sides of escalators in a London tube station.

The 26-year-old took to Facebook last night to share a video of herself distributing the books in a move which has led fans to call her “the best human in the world”.

Some lucky commuters have already shared news of their finds online.

Pictures of the special notes reveal Emma’s hope that the books will be left in tube carriages once their finders have finished with them so that they can then be read by other passengers.
