Deadline EXCLUSIVE - Stephen Chbosky, who directed Emma Watson in the sleeper hit The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, has re-teamed with the actress at 20th Century Fox on While We’re Young. Based on the Adena Halpern novel 29, While We’re Young will be scripted by (500) Days Of Summer scribes Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter. John Davis is producing through his Davis Entertainment banner. The log line: A 75-year-old woman, still feeling frisky and that she has far more in common with her 29-year-old granddaughter than with her stuffy 55-year-old daughter, is granted a birthday wish. She gets to be 29 again, for a day. She uses the time to go on an adventure with her now same-aged granddaughter. The film tells the story of three generations of women.
It’s a departure for Chbosky, who adapted his own coming-of-age novel The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and got a WGA nomination for the script. He also wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of the Jonathan Larson stage musical Rent. Perks was a very important movie for Watson, as it allowed her to play a sophisticated young woman, warts and all, as she tried to create distance from Hogwarts and her childhood spent in the Harry Potter movies. Watson most recently starred in the Sofia Coppola-directed The Bling Ring, and will next be seen in the Darren Aronofsky-directed Noah for Paramount Pictures and New Regency. She’s separately attached to star in Guillermo del Toro’s live action Beauty & the Beast for Warner Bros and Your Voice In My Head. She’s also attached to star in and executive produce Queen Of The Tearling for Potter producer David Heyman at Warner Bros. Watson is repped by WME and Markham Froggatt Irwin, and Chbosky by WME.
Earlier this week, Emma attended the New York City Premiere of ‘Gravity’, a movie directed by Alfonso Cuarón. Wearing a very pretty J. Mendel Spring 2014 Off Shoulder Two Tone Mini Dress and J. Mendel Spring 2014 Criss Cross Metallic Pumps, she looks so gorgeous on the red carpet. I’ve added lots of HQ photos from the event to the gallery. Enjoy!
Benedict Cumberbatch was voted the sexiest male movie star in the world, according to the results of a British magazine reader poll released today, while Emma Watson took the honors of being the sexiest female movie star on earth.
Other top hotties in the guys’ category included Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling (who only came in at No. 4?!), Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth.
As for the sexiest ladies? Scarlett Johansson came in at No. 2, followed by Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone and Mila Kunis.
“It’s a great result for British stars, but what’s clear is that it’s less important to have lots of casual fans and better to have a dedicated hard-core,” said James Dyer, editor of Empireonline.com. “The Cumberbabes, Hiddlestoners, Twi-hards and Cavilliers all made their opinions heard! This list also reflects the continuing popularity of superhero movies: six of the top ten men have played superheroes and five of the top ten women have appeared in comic-book movies.”

Telegraph – Child star turned Hollywood A-lister Emma Watson spills beauty tips learned from a lifetime on set.
Start with a clean canvas
Good skincare is the best starting point for make-up, and if you take care of your skin you can wear less foundation. I spend a lot more time on my skincare regime than on anything else.
I’m scrupulous about taking off my make-up before I go to bed – I use a hot flannel or a soft piece of linen to remove my Gentle Cream Cleanser by MV Organic (£32, cultbeauty.co.uk ) – and moisturising properly.
If I’ve been on a film set and they’ve put a lot of make-up on me, I take extra care cleansing. I’m obsessive about sunscreens, too: a minimum of SPF 15 is a must every day.
DailyMail – Emma Watson is favourite to land the lead role in Scarlett Johansson’s directorial debut Summer Crossing.
The Harry Potter star leads a shortlist for the part of 17-year-old Grady McNeil in the forthcoming film, which is based on Truman Capote’s novel of the same name.
Emma’s recent performance in The Bling Ring brought her to the attention of Scarlett because she convincingly played a teenager, despite actually being 23.
Grady McNeil is a wealthy New Yorker who causes controversy when she marries a Jewish man in the 1940s.
For Emma, the role would be another step in her plan to ditch her good girl image and be seen as a sexy leading lady.
Emma believes she can absorb some of Scarlett’s femme fatale allure as well, although she wouldn’t be sharing screen time with the blonde actress as Scarlett has vowed to stay behind the camera this time.
A source close to Emma said: ‘This is the perfect next step for her. Not only is she a big fan of Capote, but she also wants to be considered a screen siren and believes Scarlett can help make that happen.’
Emma is on the cover of the newest issue of ‘The Edit’, a weekly magazine by Net-A-Porter, with a beautiful photoshoot made by Bjorn Ioos. You can find the photoshoot in our gallery and read the article below.

There is not much that Emma Watson will let stand in the way of her goals: not the way Hollywood pigeonholes its actors; not the staring eyes of strangers everywhere she goes; and certainly not the pitfalls that so often face child stars making the transition into adult life.
When we meet in a historic New York hotel restaurant for breakfast, Watson is so put-together, so utterly charming, that I can’t help but wonder how someone who has been in the public eye for more than half her life is so well-grounded. But as we talk, it becomes clear: Watson, 23, is professionalism personified. It is perhaps not surprising; she was just 11 years old when she won the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie. During the 10 years she was part of the multi-billion dollar franchise, she quietly matured into one of the smartest young actresses of her generation. She makes flawless red-carpet appearances, avoids club-hopping, and treats every aspect of her job like a pro – including showing up for interviews, like this one, early.
