Washington: Emma Watson, whose cropped hairdo has been lauded as influential, has revealed that its initial inception wasn’t exactly constructive.
The 21-year-old face of Lancome said that her red carpet style is also hotly contested.
“I had journalists asking me if this meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now,” People magazine quoted her as telling U.K.’s Independent.
“That haircut did make me realize how subjective everyone’s opinion is. Some people were crazy for it and some people just thought I’d lost my mind,” she said.
The actress said that after graduating from the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, “I was fully game for ‘Throw me in this, throw me in that’.”
“The press destroyed me over this Rodarte dress I once wore — it was bright blue with chains on it. I loved it,” she said.
Perhaps Watson has decided to tone it down as a result of the negativity.
“I have to be more careful with my look in my everyday life,” she said.
Still, she refuses to apologize for the decisions she makes.
“I’m a multidimensional person and that’s the freedom of fashion that you’re able to reinvent yourself through how you dress and how you cut your hair or whatever,” she added.
