Emma Watson: My Pixie Haircut Sparked "Lesbian" Rumors
Although Emma Watson admits that cutting all her hair off made her feel more "liberated," she doesn't mean it signified any big secret about her sexuality. The Harry Potter star has just revealed that people assumed she was gay after she swapped her long, luscious locks for a cute pixie cut back in November 2010.
"I had journalists asking me if [my haircut] meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now," Emma told The 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 s**t."
But, although the Twiggy-esque hairdo sparked rumors about her sexuality, the 21-year-old doesn't regret trying something new and experimenting with different looks.
"All I can do is follow my instincts because I'll never please everyone," Emma explained. "As I've got older, and since I cut all my hair off, I've felt a bit more liberated about trying different things out," she added.
And you know what, we like her cut! She joins the ranks of Halle Berry and Michelle Williams as one of the few women who could pull off a cropped cut. Don't you agree?
