Ciara O'Connor

A gleeful internet descended on Emma Watson after photographs of her at the Oscars last week showed a misspelled ‘Time’s up’ temporary tattoo on her arm.

Emma Watson is that girl in school who always gets top of the class in exams but is also captain of the hockey and debating team. All the boys want to snog her and all the girls want to be invited to her birthday sleepover. The teachers kind of want to be her.

Since graduating from the Harry Potter franchise that shot her into the limelight at the age of 11, Emma Watson (pictured inset) has devoted much of her time to advocacy and activism work. She can be found on panels, speaking at feminist events and leaving copies of Maya Angelou books on the underground.
