Hermione Granger is officially open for business

Overgrown lad-mag Ask Men has finally trained its sights on a barely post-pubescent Emma Watson. It’s a wonder the editors were able to hold off as long as they did. Perhaps they concentrated on baseball statistics or something.

  1. Hey! Don’t malign baseball stat-heads, we got culture!

  2. It’s a wonder the editors were able to hold off as long as they did.

    Insert your own “grass on the pitch” remark here.

    OK, I will admit that the Emma-Watson-as-Hermione-Granger would have been my dream girlfriend when I was her age. And from the Yule Ball scene in Goblet of Fire, it’s clear that she is going to be a lovely young woman.

    But what the hell, people? Everyone gotten over their obsession with the Olson twins finally?

  4. I don’t get it. What’s so bad about that article/interview? It seems like the typical “she’s got a huge movie coming out” thing to me. Am I missing something?

  7. I’ve seen many angls. 45-degree ones, 90-degree ones. You know how it goes.

    Everyone gotten over their obsession with the Olson twins finally?

    Well yeah, I mean, they’re over eighteen now, aren’t they?

  8. Or a dictionary.

    Look, spell check is included on Firefox now. I get the feeling that’s a person beyond help.

    I’ll stick with the pole-vaulter, thanks very much. At least she’s 18…

    Hey, don’t make fun — he may be writing in Middle English.

    Not to kill the snark, but IME, someone with spelling that bad probably has a learning disability. I’ve never been fond of online spelling flames for that very reason.

    But anyway, Hermione. Yeah, she’s fine, but give me a big helping of Harry first. Now that the young actors are over 18, the HP films promise bisexual eye-candy galore.

    Nope. I’ve seen college kids write paragraphs that aren’t much better. They grew up using texting shorthand (ur, schol, r, 2day, b4, wuz, cuz, etc.)

    I once ran across Romeo and Juliet transcribed into text messages. It was hilarious. I can’t find it again.

  13. My eyes! My eyes!

    First a snarky Mitchum deodorant ad making fun of t-shirts with flowers and teddy bears (and sweat stains and white marks).

    Then off to the side of the article, cleavage with this come on:

    From the Bar to the Bedroom: the 11 rules for picking up and pleasuring women.

    Makes me glad I don’t venture out into the internet past my well-beaten paths all that often.

    I’ve never seen a Harry movie (yes, we exist), but I saw Ms. Watson on a talk show and she was lovely. Let the objectification begin! (Don’t you think her hips could use a little photoshopping…?)

  14. I don’t get it. What’s so bad about that article/interview? It seems like the typical “she’s got a huge movie coming out” thing to me. Am I missing something?

    Well, the source makes the reason why they did an article on her in the first place highly suspect. And then there the fact that they lead into the interview with “Emma was also on the cover of Teen Vogue* and she was ranked 98th sexiest woman in the world by FHM in 2007.”

    The interview itself isn’t bad except that her answers come across as “girl-power!” and “girls stuff is silly, boy stuff is cool.” A part of the may be Ms. Watson, but since she also claims to be “a bit of a feminist” I’m also guessing some of it is what the interviewer wanted to focus on. I don’t think it’s off enough that she would complain about the article, but I have a feeling it doesn’t quite come across the way she meant it to. But that may just be wishful thinking on my part.

    *note, Emma Watson was on the cover of Teen Vogue – and so was Daniel Radcliff. Just saying.

    “look i never seen an angl befor”

    I’ve seen lots of Angles – and Saxons, Jutes, Normans and Picts. Well, their descendants, anyway. There are some FINE looking Angles out there, and I concur that Ms. Watson is among them. She’s quite the fair maid. Too bad the pulp press won’t leave her alone to get her work and schooling done now.

    And of course the pulp press isn’t going to go on about her obvious acting talent, nor her (impressive – at least to unskuled Ahmurrcans) intellect. They’re too busy ogling and drooling. At least they can pretend to be better educated than our unfortunate commentor. NCLB, anyone?

    Txt R&J was funny. Short and funny. I was surprised they had any part of the Shakespearian quotes in there though.
