It’ll take more than a pixie cut for Emma to shake the bookworm rep that came courtesy of her decade-long turn as Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” franchise. Logan Lerman (who stars as Charlie in “Perks of Being a Wallflower”) caught the real-life reader in the act, brushing up on the film’s source material.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)
This tells the story of an introvert freshman named Charlie (Logan Lerman) who is taken on the wings by his friends Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller), who welcome him to the world of sex, drugs and complicated relationships. Written and directed by the author of the original 1999 novel of the same name, Stephen Chbosky, the film doesn’t hold back from talking frankly about sex and drugs among young adults.
