Watson was born in Paris, the daughter of British lawyers Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson. The actress was reluctant to dedicate her life to acting without completing a university education and she recently graduated from the prestigious Brown university with a degree in English literature.
Most Stinking Scandals: Watson isn’t quite as straight-laced as Herimone, however! While she was still working on the Potter franchise a picture surfaced of the actress chugging down a Corona at the dinner table aged 15. But, apart from a couple of embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, Watson has been a remarkably good girl. She even dumped her last long term boyfriend, Will Adamowicz, over allegations of his drug use.
Watson was appointed in July 2014 as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador.
Emma Watson broke up with American Will Adamowicz, whom she met at Oxford in 2011, in the summer of 2013. She later began dating Oxford rugby player Matt Janney, whom she met at a varsity match in December. Matt Janney might be a strapping sportsman, but Emma Watson admitted in a recent interview that she felt the need to protect him. She said;
“I don’t date people who are famous and I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them” Bless her!

Will Adamowicz scandal
Emma Watson was dating Will Adamowicz, who she met at Oxford University, for the better part of the last few years. They mostly stayed off the radar, getting papped very rarely and not posing together at events. However, a random Facebook photo showing Will in very suspicious circumstances has quickly gone viral. The photo shows Will surrounded by white powder, and it’s pretty obvious that he’s about to snort some cocaine. I mean, anyone who’s been to college is probably familiar with this scene. Anyway, Will obviously thinks we’re all idiots, since he issues the most nonsensical apology ever. He apparently stated, “The picture is not compromising. It is not what you think. They are not packages. They are not drugs. They are just bits of scrap paper. I don’t take any drugs.”
Riiiiight. They’re just scrap papers. And I guess the white powder is just baking soda? The picture is pretty much as incriminating as it gets, and I’m guessing Emma’s team knows that. Emma’s rep released a statement saying that Emma and Will broke up last summer, which means that they’re doing as much as possible to distance Emma from this possible scandal.
UN Goodwill Ambassador role
Those wondering whether they hand out UN titles to the famous like biscuits would be pleased to learn that Watson earned her new humanitarian role by promoting education for girls in Zambia and Bangladesh.
Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, said it was an “honour” to have the actress with her on the team. “The engagement of young people is critical for the advancement of gender equality in the 21st century,” she said. “I am convinced that Emma’s intellect and passion will enable UN Women’s messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally.”
