About the makeup trailer on the HP set (2011): "That was my playground. I would sit and play with lipsticks, foundations, and eye shadows, and every now and then Amanda would let me do the extras' face paint for the Quidditch matches."

Should We Bring Back the Calendar Competition?

In December we ended our calendar competition. That post had the biggest response in comments we’ve had in a long time, with many people saying they were sad to see it go, or wished it could continue. I too was sad that the competition was over after so many years and have had thoughts of bringing it back. It’s been gone a few months now. Would you still like to have a competition? And do you have any suggestions for getting more people to participate in making calendars?

I know there has been a lot of Emma news the last few days. Sorry, I’ll try to catch up on that tomorrow.

For now, here is our calendar for March thanks to Jia.

New Clip of ‘Belle’ from Beauty and the Beast

Disney has released a new clip of Emma Watson singing “Belle” in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Don’t watch if you don’t want to be SPOILED. In theaters March 17!

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Emma Receives Woman of the Year at Elle Style Awards

Emma Watson was awarded “Woman of the Year” in recognition of her campaigning for gender equality at the ELLE Style Awards on Monday.

Emma spoke of the current political turmoil in the US, and the recent Women’s March on Washington she took part in. “That has been the upside of the downsides of late which is difficult times, but also this emerging, very cohesive group of women that are being very vocal and showing real solidarity. The fact that we managed to organise one of the most peaceful, largest protests in history, says so much about what we can achieve and about us as a group. It feels very exciting.”
