To celebrate the release of Sophia Copolla’s The Bling Ring starring Emma Watson, we at Thn bring you the Top Ten Former Child Stars That You Now Totally Would. Before you accuse us of being ‘Acolytes of Savile,’ this is a celebration of the actors that Used To Be child stars and have grown up to be bang tidy. There are no historic cases here, we are ogling them As They Are Now.
Having said that (Yewtree speed-dial at the ready…), we shall discuss that odd and unique feeling of fancying someone (now) who was famous when they were just a kid.

Actor reunites with Harry Potter makers for new Game of Thrones-style cinema saga
Harry Potter star Emma Watson is returning to fantasy cinema after signing on to play the lead in "Game of Thrones-style" saga Queen of the Tearling, reports Variety.
Watson will play 19-year-old idealistic princess Kelsea Glynn, created by Erika Johansen after the author heard a 2007 speech by a pre-presidential Barack Obama. Johansen signed a seven-book deal in February and the first novel in the series is due next year. It is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe, when a malevolent Red Queen reigns over the kingdom of the Tearling. Glynn must defeat the monarch to reclaim her deceased mother's crown, and publishers have compared the tone of the series with that of George Rr Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire saga, which is being adapted by Us network HBO as Game of Thrones.

Emma Watson, best remembered for the hugely successful Harry Potter franchise, will be starring in the movie adaptation of Queen of the Tearling. Since the conclusion of her role as Hermione Granger, Watson has opted for appearing in smaller movies such as My Week with Marilyn and The Bling Ring, both of which featured great performances from her. She was also radiant in yet another book-to-screen adaptation, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and will be seen in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah in March of 2014. The actress has definitely been keeping busy.
Queen of the Tearling is the first novel in a trilogy written by new author Erika Johansen. Watson will take the lead role of Kelsea Glynn. The character was created with inspiration from a speech given by Barack Obama in 2007. According to Variety the plot ”is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe when a malevolent Red Queen holds considerable power. »

Emma Watson has successfully created an acting career past Hogwarts. She's carefully moved forward with supporting roles in notable films such as My Week with Marilyn, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, a small part in This Is the End, and next year she's co-starring Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic, Noah. But now it looks like she's ready to step into a lead role, and do it in a franchise of her own. According to Variety, Watson will re-team with Harry Potter producer David Heyman for an adaptation of Erika Johansen's trilogy of fantasy books, Queen of the Tearling. Hit the jump for more. Variety reports that the book features a 19-year-old female protagonist, and "is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe when a malevolent Red Queen holds considerable power." Johansen was partly inspired by a 2007 speech from Barack Obama. I guess I missed his "malevolent Red Queen" speech. »

From the moment the "Harry Potter" series finished, Emma Watson has (mostly) steered clear of major tentpoles, opting instead to flex her muscles in smaller-scale films. While "My Week With Marilyn" didn't give her much to do except get walked all over, she shone in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and is pitch perfectly airheaded in "The Bling Ring." And right now in theaters, she gets what is arguably one of the best moments/sequences in "This Is The End." And oh yeah, she's getting all Biblical with Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" next spring. But now, she's ready for another franchise. Watson is reteaming with 'Potter' producer David Heyman for “Queen of the Tearling.” An adaptation of the first book in a trilogy by Erika Johansen, whose lead character partially came to life thanks to no less than Barack Obama and a 2007 speech he gave (writers: keep your idea »

Book is part of Erika Johansen’s fantasy trilogy whose 19-year-old female lead was partly inspired by a speech the author heard Barack Obama give in 2007. Harper Collins will publish the trilogy, which has been described as a female “Game of Thrones” beginning in 2014. The book is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe when a malevolent Red Queen holds considerable power.

As a 20-year-old film critic, one of the things I always look out for, and do my best to thoughtfully report on, is how filmmakers represent modern teenage life. Having been in high school only a few years ago, the lack of authenticity in cinematic representations of adolescence is a constant annoyance to me, albeit one I understand. Those who have progressed enough in their careers to actually get movies made are far removed from their teenage years, and if youth is a subject they want to tackle, they will either have to craft a period piece specific to their personal memories and experiences – which can turn out spectacularly, as both Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower and David Chase’s Not Fade Away, for instance, took spots on my 2012 top-ten list – or work in a contemporary setting and risk seeming completely out of touch.

It seems like Emma Watson has been in just about everything lately: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "The Bling Ring," "This Is the End." As it turns out, however, she almost ended up being in nothing. The actress revealed in an interview with Total Film that she nearly quit the business after wrapping the "Harry Potter" series.
Questioning whether Hollywood was the right place for her, the erstwhile Hermione Granger took a hiatus from the acting world to determine if it was where she truly wanted to be.
"I basically took two years out and stepped as far away from it as I could," Watson reportedly said. "I mean, the 'Harry Potter' films were still coming out, but I took time to really try and figure out who I was and what I wanted to do. I even considered not being an actress."
That hiatus found Watson heading to Brown University for college. »

Actress Emma Watson, famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" movies as well as more recent films like "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," will return to Brown University in the fall of 2013.
Watson talked about her decision to return to Brown with Rookiemag.com. She left the university after her second year, surrounded by rumors -- which she debunked -- of bullying. Now, after two years focusing on her film career, Watson is looking forward to designing her curriculum going forward.
When asked about what she was looking forward to in school, the 23-year-old actress was enthusiastic:
"I really like the fact that [Brown] has a very open curriculum, that there aren't any requirements. Really, I've kind of been in charge of my own education since I started out on 'Potter' when I was 9 or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to, »
Los Angeles, May 30: Emma Watson is trying to get rid of the "Harry Potter" franchise tag with parts in films like "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and "The Bling Ring". She wants to get herself established as a serious actress, but admits she feels "inadequate" about her skills.
Watson plays Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" franchise.
"It's called the impostor syndrome. It's almost like the better I do, the more my feeling of inadequacy actually increases, because I'm just going," the 23-year-old said in an interview with Rookie magazine, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"Any moment, someone's going to find out I'm a. »

It might not have the lyricism of "Mud," the eccentricity of "Moonrise Kingdom" or the angst of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," but "The Kings of Summer" brings its own strengths to the table, from the oddball wit of Chris Galletta's screenplay to a charming ensemble cast that includes vets like Nick Offerman and Mary-Lynn Rajskub as well as a slew of young TV talent. This big-screen debut from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is a delightful spree, a goofy lark and the perfect hot-weather diversion for audiences who want summer movie »

A new trailer Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters has been released. The follow-up finds the titular Percy (Logan Lerman) and his friends venturing to a mythical land known as the Sea of Monsters to retrieve a golden fleece that is essential to the survival of his home. Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) takes over directing duties from Chris Columbus this time around, and this trailer actually looks pretty fun. The creature designs are neat and the action sequences look to be visually exciting, and we also get an extended look at Nathan Fillion as Hermes. Lerman really impressed with his performance in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and he already looks more in command in Sea of Monsters than he did in the first film. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Stanley Tucci, Douglas Smith, Leven Rambin, »

From Josh Boone; the chap who’s recently signed on to adapt the hugely popular The Fault In Our Stars comes Stuck In Love. His debut flick dallies with similar subjects: teen love; adult love; err…alright, it’s a film about love. He’s obviously got a lot to say about the troublesome mistress that is romance. If you’re intrigued by a film which isn’t going to sugar coat it, then check out the trailer below.
Writer-director Boone’s first feature, Stuck In Love has a number of things going for it. Two of those are Jennifer Connelly and Kristen Bell. Sure, Greg Kinnear is in it too and he’s a solid actor who always brings the dependable. In an period of cinema where boundary-shattering roles are few and far between for women though, it’s exciting to see Connelly in…well, Anything. The Oscar-winning actress »

Emma Watson has opened up about her insecurities, confessing that she feels like a "total fraud" as an actress.
The Harry Potter star admitted that she feels more inadequate as her success increases, explaining that she has struggled with her confidence since the franchise ended.
"It's called the impostor syndrome. It's almost like the better I do, the more my feeling of inadequacy actually increases," Watson told Rookie magazine.
"I'm just going, 'Any moment, someone's going to find out I'm a total fraud and that I don't deserve any of what I've achieved'. I can't possibly live up to what everyone's expectations of me are.
"It's weird - sometimes [success] can be incredibly validating, but sometimes it can be incredibly unnerving and throw your balance off a bit."
The sun has set (or risen?) on Summit Entertainment’s venerable vampire series — but even though it, like Robsten, is officially kaput, Twilight still holds a hypnotic power over people of a certain age. (That age is “young.”)
