Emma Watson

She sure kept this one hidden, but sure with his good looks, we'd want him all to ourselves too.

Emma Watson is reportedly dating tech entrepreneur William 'Mack' Knight for the last four months, reports The Sun. The pair have apparently just finished their first holiday together in sunny California.

The actress first met the businessman in September and the pair are said to be just home from a romantic €9,000-a-night getaway.

"Mack is just a normal, down-to-earth guy who has nothing to do with Hollywood and Emma loves that," a source told The Sun.

"They're really happy with each other and see each other whenever Emma does not have work commitments."


Well, just go and rip our hearts right out of our chests, why don't you.

If there's anyone that should be invested in a happy ending for Ron Weasley, it's Rupert Grint, who played him in all seven Harry Potter films.

But speaking at a Warner Bros event recently, Rupert revealed he had a very different idea of poor Ron's fate.

Despite defeating Death Eaters, Dementors and Voldemort himself to be together, Ron and Hermione's relationship just didn't last the distance. At least that's what Rupert thinks.

"I would expect Ron has probably divorced Hermione already. I don’t think that relationship would have done very well," he told the audience during a chat at Universal Studios in Orlando.

"[Ron’s] living on his own, in a little one-bedroom apartment. He hasn’t got a job," Rupert continued.

OUCH. Luckily for Harry Potter fans, Rupert's former co-star Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) interjected, saying, "Don’t say divorced. Say they’ve split up. They can reconcile."

Sadly Emma Watson herself wasn't there to offer her own version of events, but we hope it wouldn't have been quite so bleak as Rupert's one.


Tributes for English stage and film powerhouse Alan Rickman have been flooding in today.

The actor, who was 69, passed away from cancer while "surrounded by family and friends."

As well as messages of shock and condolences from fans and colleagues alike, some of Alan's own quotes and messages have been doing the rounds online too.

One piece in particular, the actor's sweet goodbye letter to the Harry Potter film franchise in which he played Severus Snape, definitely brought a tear to our eye:

The letter was published in Empire magazine back in 2011, after the seventh and final film was released, and was shared by a fan on Imgur today.

"A lifetime seems to have passed in minutes," he wrote. 

"Three children have become adults since a phonecall with Jo Rowling, containing one small clue, persuaded me that there was more to Snape than an unchanging costume."

Many of those who worked with Alan on Harry Potter – including JK Rowling herself – took to social media today to pay their emotional tributes:

I'm very sad to hear about Alan today. I feel so lucky to have worked and spent time with such a special man and actor. I'll really miss our conversations. RIP Alan. We love you

Rest in peace, Alan.


Emma Watson is channelling her inner Hermione with the announcement that she is launching a feminist book club on Goodreads. 

Emma revealed the plans yesterday when she tweeted to her fans asking for them to come up with a good title for the club. 

After some good and many questionable suggestions later, Emma settled on the title Our Shared Shelf

The book club is to include many thought provoking and feminist literature and the first title Emma picked is the biography of activist Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road. 

"As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too," she wrote on the official page. 

"The plan is to select and read a book every month, then discuss the work during the month's last week (to give everyone time to read it!). I will post some questions/quotes to get things started, but I would love for this to grow into an open discussion with and between you all."

"Whenever possible I hope to have the author, or another prominent voice on the subject, join the conversation. If you fancy it, please join up and participate. Everyone is welcome. I would be honoured!"

Well if you are into a good read, this sounds amazing! You can find the page here and discussion has already started. 


After there was a lot of speculation about the new Hermione, Ms Noma Dumezweni, the original Hermione, Emma Watson, has taken to Twitter to voice her thoughts.

And guess what? She's totally into it:

Sharing her excitement about the new cast, Emma tweeted, "Can't wait to see Noma Dumezweni as Hermione on stage this year," and then followed it with a million hearts. What a cutie pie.

Emma clearly wanted to send a message to the people who doubted that Noma could play the role. And we totally can't wait to see a pic of the two witches together!

Roll on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! 



Though we may model our #browgoals on eyebrow queens such as Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins, most of us know that their deliciously thick brows would probably look ridiculous on us. 

That is because no matter how much you live for a thick, bushy brow in theory, it definitely does not mean that it would suit your face in practise.

In fact, according beauty experts, your natural, pre tweezed arches are probably going to be the best brow shape for your face. Which is ideal, because the natural looking brow is definitely coming into its own. 

However, after all the plucking, tinting, waxing and threading, many of us probably do not even know what our natural eyebrows look like anymore.

So put down those tweezers and step away from that mirror! We have everything you need to know about rediscovering your natural brow. 

1) Let em grow!

Sometimes the hardest part about trying to find your natural brow shape is actually letting the brows grow. 

According the eyebrow expert and beauty guru Kristie Streicher, the first two months of growing out those brows will be the toughest. 

"The most difficult stage is the beginning, [because] tweezing can be a habitual pleasure for most of us, so breaking the habit, in addition to seeing your brows look unruly for several weeks, is not easy."

Growing those bad boys out means no waxing, threading or plucking and it can take up to a year for the hair to grow out if the area has been heavily plucked or waxed. 

If there is a drastic shape change, Kristie says "Sometimes there may be a distinct line between your previous shape and where the hair is growing — trust me, this will fill in." So make sure to persevere ladies! 

2) Try a tint!

Tinting is an eyebrow game changer. 

Whether you have fair, blonde hair or deep and dark arches, tinting can really show you what you are working with. 

"It's a natural way to enhance what hair you have, as well as richen and define your brows," says Kristie.

"Even adding the same level of colour can help fill in any sparse areas and give the illusion of a fuller brow."

3) We'll let you tweeze, just a little! 

While you shouldn't tweeze any hairs close to the brow while they are growing out, you can tackle those strays that fall outside the brow line. 

According to Kristie you just need to figure out what should and should not be tweezed. 

"With each tweezing it's important to maintain a rather large 'buffer' between what you're tweezing and your growing eyebrow shape. It is also very helpful to fill in your ideal eyebrow shape with pencil or powder first." 

"Be sure to extend ends all the way across the brow bone when filling in—the ends are most important. This will give you a more clear idea of what should be tweezed and what should be left alone."

4) Say NO to waxing!

If you like the super precise finish of a wax, than we say 'you do you, boo.' 

But if you are looking to enhance your natural brow, Kristie tends to avoid the hot wax. 

"I only tweeze. The eyebrow deserves the detail-oriented and precise approach of tweezing. Waxing can create a very clean and distinct hair-to-no hair line of contrast, and in my humble opinion, this can look contrived and quite dated." 

"Tweezing allows the brows to be a bit more feathered looking, leaving a soft line." 

5) Fill em in 

No matter how long you wait for those pesky brows to fill in, some areas may be naturally more sparse than others. So, thank goodness for eyebrow pencils and powders! 

"Using short feather strokes, shade just above and just below the brow line (or where you have spare areas of hair)," says Kristie.

"Then use a brush to blend, in order to create a fuller and thicker looking brow."

6) Gel em!

If you worry that your brows never seem to stay in place, use a clear gel to set the hairs exactly where you want them.  

"Think of it as the mascara of the eyebrow," says Kristie. 



So, picture this. It is New York City on New Year's Eve, 1979. Everyone who is anyone has rocked up to infamous nightclub of the stars Studio 54. Frequented by Michael Jackson, Diane Von Furstenberg and Andy Warhol, it was THE only place to be seen on the weekend. 

This New Year's Eve party was packed to the rafters and as the clock struck midnight, four TONNES of glitter was dropped onto the dance floor as guests shimmied their way into 1980. For months after the now historic event, if you spotted a few flecks of glitter on the collar of your brunching partner, you knew exactly where they spent their NYE.  

Here we have proof, ladies and gents, that glitter is NOT just for kids. YAY. 

Don't be afraid to add a little sparkle to your makeup looks this holiday season in a slightly less messy (but equally as glamorous) manner. 


1) Make glitter your focal point 

Whether it is your eyes, your lips or even perhaps your hair (yep, glitter in hair is officially a thing), make one of these the focal point for your glitter obsession. By applying glitter heavily to the eye area, for example, it is important to leave the lips clean and fresh perhaps with just a light gloss. Glitter is intense to wear so try not to go overboard! 


2) Use eyelash glue as adhesive 

Eyelash glue is the ideal tool to apply glitter to your face and to make sure it lasts the entire night. Spread some adhesive on a smooth surface and use a tweezers to dip individual specs of glitter into the glue and apply any way you like. The more sparkle the better. 


3) Play with colour

When people think glitter, they tend to think silver and gold immediately but this sparkly stuff comes in all different colours. Choose shades that compliment your make up look or highlights accents in your outfit. Looking this good means planning, ya'll. 


4) Get Creative

Glitter does not have to dominate your look. Apply shadows and use specs of glitter to add some interest to the eye. Play around with different designs such as a cluster on the outer lid or a strip underneath the lash line. Cute!


5) If actual glitter ain't your thing, opt for intense shimmer 

Okay, we get that actual glitter might be a bit too much for some but that does not mean you shouldn't sparkle. Shimmering eye shadows are a super popular way to add that eye opening glisten to the face without actually sticking glitter on it.

So indulge in a super shimmery shadow and apply to the entire eye lid crease. Remember darker shades create striking shadows to the outer corners of the eyes and white or nude shades open the eyes when applied to the inner corners. 




For as long as we can remember, Emma Watson has stuck to her golden roots and is not one to drastically play up her looks. 

But the 25-year-old recently donned a much darker hair colour than were all used to for a romantic gothic photoshoot for Vogue Italia.

The actress was photographed for an editorial spread and to no one's surprise, she looks gorgeous – even with the hair change. 

Her hair wasn't the only thing going a little darker though as she was featured with very smokey eyes, and moody clothing; quite the opposite from her usual bright and girly attire.

There's no telling if the new look was strictly for the shoot, but if it's permanent, she totally rocks it. Here's Vogue Italia's video of the fab photoshoot:


James Franco loves Emma Watson so much that he just went and got a tattoo of the star inked on his NECK. 

The actor revealed his new tattoo in a topless Instagram post, with the caption, "I love Hermione. Ink by @idiangiver."

The tattoo is a portrait of Emma with her hair up in a bun and below it is her name. 

Now, thanks to Ed Sheeran sparking a huge debate over his lion tattoo, the Internet is VERY sceptical as to what is real and what is fake – and many IG users are right with this one; it's a fake. 

In fact, it's the clever work of artist Cheyenne Randall, who uses his Photoshop skills to add ink to pictures of celebrities. 

He tagged James in his original post, writing: "@jamesfrancotv #shoppedtattoos."

You almost fooled everyone James, fair play. 



Jennifer Lopez has just announced she has joined the ranks of women fighting for gender equality. 

The singer has just joined the front lines of the gender equality fight, starting a new position as global advocate for women and girls at the U.N. Foundation, a role which both Beyoncé and Emma Watson acquired before her. 

But J Lo is adopting the cause for a personal reason, as she told U.N. President Kathy Calvin at an event on Friday. 

"Having boy-girl twins really opened my eyes to how different men and women are and makes me think about how I treat my boy and how I treat my girl."

The U.N. set goals last week to achieve gender equality in 15 years – and Jennifer is determined to get to that finish line because of her family. 

"At the end of the day, when I picture 2030 when we reach these goals, I want my twins standing side by side and I want them looking at a landscape that has the same opportunity for both of them," she said.

"That the world is as much of an oyster for Emme as it is for Max."

Viola Davis and Patricia Arquette's speeches hot home for the 46-year-old, according to The Cut, and motivated her to use her own following to make a difference. 

"As an artist, I strive to inspire so people can aspire to do bigger and better things with their lives," she said.

"And for me, women should have all of those opportunities and should aspire to be the President of the United States…it could happen soon!"


It's the age old question. 

Every woman has wondered this every once in a while – but many are too afraid to take the plunge.

Whether it was Posh Spice circa 2008 or Jennifer Lawrence circa 2013, celebs seems to pull off short hair so effortlessly – but then again, they have stylists doing their do' every morning. 

Cosmopolitan UK reports that Giles Robinson, senior stylist at John Frieda has come up with a special formula that can determine if a short pixie cut will flatter your face shape. 

All you have to do is place a pencil or pen under your chin horizontally, then place a ruler under your ear, vertically. Next, measure the height of where the pencil and the ruler intersect. 

If it measures less than 2.25 inches, go for it girl! 

If it's longer than 2.25 inches, long hair might flatter your face shape more. 

As always though, (like all beauty rules) there are exceptions and in the end you should wear whatever hairstyle makes you feel like Beyoncé. 

But for anyone that has been debating this question for a while, this could be your extra push to go for it – it'll always grow back!


Over the weekend rugby payer Keegan Hirst came out as the first openly gay player.

In an interview with The Sunday Mirror, he spoke openly about coming out to his teammates and how he found it challenging to come to terms with his own sexuality at times.

Keegan, 27, who plays for Batley Bulldogs and is a father of two children said that it was as if he was “letting out a long breath that I’ve held in for a long time.”

He raised by a single mother in a council estate in Batley and Keegan says that he struggled as a young man to come to terms with his sexuality:

“I had a wife and kids. I’ve been a builder, doorman, worked in factories, I play rugby. I tick every macho box. How could I be gay? I’m from Batley for goodness sake. No one is gay in Batley.”

Only a few weeks ago he split up with his wife who he says blamed herself but Keegan says he couldn’t bear the guilt of it all, “of her not knowing.”

Since the news broke, many people have been sharing messages of support with the sports star.  One of those being human rights activist and Harry Potter star Emma Watson.

In a series of tweets about courage, Emma proved to one of many A-list stars to show their support for Keegan’s decision to speak publicly about his personal life.


Another was Stephen Fry.

In 2013 Emma, a UN Goodwill Ambassador with the HeForShe campaign made headlines for her speech inviting men to join the fight for gender equality.

She continues to speak on issues of equality regularly, something which Keegan himself has recognised for a while now it seems!
