But really, there’s a reason why Emma would be such a perfect BFF for we ordinary ladies—several reasons, actually! And in honor of her upcoming appearance at the MTV Movie Awards, we’ve listed out the top five sources of Emma’s awesomeness. Check it:
1. She’s got the most raid-able closet, ever.
Emma’s style icon status means she’d be our go-to bestie for fashion advice, beauty tips and maybe the occasional loaner from her gorgeous wardrobe.
2. She’s un-ruffle-able under pressure.
It’s hard to think of anyone who’s coped with her celebrity status as gracefully as Emma; not only has she been totally straightforward about the effects of being so famous, but she’s never shied away from setting the record straight. (Remember those rumors that she’d left Brown University because of bullying? Her response: “I wasn’t going to wuss out of university because someone said ’Wingardium leviosa’ to me in a corridor!”)
3. She brought Hermione and Sam to life.
Playing a beloved book character on-screen is a heavy responsibility for any actress; Emma’s done it twice, spectacularly.
4. She’s not too cool for school.
And not just literally, either (although the actress has studied at two elite universities.) Emma has a famously down-to-earth approach to her social life, from kicking around with her non-celebrity boyfriend to (allegedly) adopting a pseudonym from 1980s British sitcom “Yes, Prime Minister” in order to stay under the radar at Oxford.
5. She’s the best at spells.
We know, we know; Harry Potter doesn’t exist, and magic is all make-believe. But, I mean, if it weren’t make-believe, and if it were real, and if we needed someone to obliviate all our ex-boyfriends so they’d never remember seeing us naked, then the brightest witch at Hogwarts would be a good friend to have. (P.S. IT’S REAL.)
