Hermione

Won't Flip the Bird

7/10/2007 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Emma Watson's on her way to being a starlet ... but she's not ready to flip-off the paparazzi -- yet.

TMZ cameras spotted the "Harry Potter" teenage witch shopping at celeb favorite Kitson on uber-trendy Robertson Blvd. yesterday, where she was quick to throw a wave to photogs snapping her pic. When a few cameramen started asking her to give them the finger, Watson just kept smiling, clearly not understanding the thick American accents of the photogs.

Maria Menounos, who was doing an interview with Watson, explained what paps were asking her to do, and Emma cracked up, shaking her head and saying, "No!!"

She's still got a lot to learn.

She is so freakin' cute...and I would love to see her flip the bird, but she's way too classy for that. Unlike the trash we spawn here in America! Love you, Emma!!!

Kudos to Emma! Perhaps she can raise the bar in America where it seems all right to call young women bitches, etc., She obviously can set the standard for being a young LADY with intelligence, grace, and good manners!

Are we really that crude, crass and rude in America? As a vet, I am not sure that is what we had in mind when we took up arms to defend the Amerudcan way of life.

Have we really relegated our daughters to such a low level? I certainly hope not! THANK YOU, EMMA! Stay the lady that are you!

And any detractors to what I say should take serious care. If you think I am a whoosy, you'd better think again. There's nothing I like better than a roll in the dirt with jerks - but I am always a gentleman to ladies of all ages.

Thanks again, Emma.

Why should she stoop to rude gestures....just because YOU want her to? What she did was show taste and good manners, some other "starlets" out there could learn a thing or two on good behavior from her.

I agree with you guys ( except poster 1# Spanky, get a life creep.) Kudos to Emma for staying a lady and not flipping the bird. There should be more girls like her!

Nope, it's called having class. They can't all be skanky Hiltons, ya know?

Smart girl, I'm surprised TMZ even featured her - she isn't driving under the influence, getting caught having sex, or flashing her body parts. It's refreshing to see a little class!

Well Done to Emma, even though she probably had no idea what the paps were asking her to do with the differences in culture.

It shows that not all young actresses/socialites fall under the bad influence of Hollywood, there are some well mannered one left out there.

Well done Emma.

Get the Facts Straight    

And if she HAD flipped the finger, you would have been all about posting the pic and saying how rude she had been. Nothing would have been said about how your photographers asked/harassed her into doing it!

This makes me wonder how many times that we "see" pictures of other stars making rude gestures are just responding to what they have been ASKED to do.

Hey, #10...whatever, dude. If she so much as even looked at you, I bet you'd piss right down your leg and run away crying like a little girl! Emma is a smart, classy girl and she doesn't deserve to be leered at by perverted idiots like you...dumb-ass.
