Emma Watson was spotted out in Santa Monica yesterday, getting quite cozy with her "Perks of Being a Wallflower" co-star Johnny Simmons.

He's clearly under her spell.

J.K. Rowling Presents ... Homeless Theater

7/20/2011 3:50 PM PDT
"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling just got iced up with a 40-diamond bracelet -- but perhaps she'd like to hand it over to a someone in need ... like a homeless person ... played by Harvey Levin?

'Harry Potter' Author Scores Multi-Million $$ Thank You

7/20/2011 5:00 AM PDT
As if J.K. Rowling wasn't rich enough -- Warner Bros. gave her a token of its appreciation for the latest "Harry Potter" flick -- an insanely expensive piece of jewelry.

Sources close to CEO Barry Meyer tell TMZ ... Rowling scored a white gold, antique 40-diamond bracelet worth millions of dollars -- which he presented to her at the London premiere after-party.

According to sources, Rowling was nervous about donning such a valuable piece of jewelry before she got it insured ... but  she got a more primitive form of insurance -- a bunch of burly security guards at the bash.

Price, of course, is relative -- wordwide, the latest movie has grossed more than half-a-billion bucks.

Emma Watson Shortcut in Dorm Room Evacuation

9/29/2010 8:00 AM PDT
Emma Watson modeled her little boy haircut during an emergency evacuation at Brown University yesterday morning -- but TMZ has learned ... unlike Hermione's 'do, the scary situation was a false alarm.

According to sources at Brown, the fire alarm at the dorm where she was staying went off around 10am -- and we're told, it all started with a leaky steam pipe ... which triggered the emergency alert system.

No one was injured -- and after about 10 embarrassing minutes outside in their pajamas, the students were allowed to return to their chambers of secrets.

Accio eye shadow!

Swine Flu -- All the Rage in Hollywood

9/24/2009 1:10 AM PDT
It's the newest craze sweeping through Hollywood -- celebrities with Swine Flu!!!! And now two new members are on the infectious bandwagon!

's chief medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta just got over his bout with the Swine Flu -- and Marilyn Manson just announced that he's got S.F. right now!

"Harry Potter's" Rupert Grint had it ... "The Early Show's" Harry Smith thinks he has it ... and Lisa Rinna claims her entire family got down with the sickness. It's a full blown trend!

According to Manson, he didn't contract it by "f**king a pig" -- we're guessing Gupta didn't either.

'Potter' Star Guilty in Potted Pot Plant Case

7/16/2009 3:00 AM PDT
The kid who plays Vincent Crabbe in the "Harry Potter" movies could be heading to Azkaban wizard prison soon -- he just pled guilty to growing magical marijuana plants inside his mother's London home.

Jamie Waylett -- who plays the school bully in all six "Potter" flicks -- was popped in April after cops found eight bags of weed in the car in which Jamie was riding. Cops then searched Waylett's mom's place and found 10 pot plants.

Waylett will be sentenced on Tuesday -- he faces up to 14 years in the slammer.

Daniel Radcliffe -- He Who Must Not Be Bothered

8/21/2008 5:48 PM PDT
Daniel Radcliffe must have had some kind of magic stick up his butt the other day in NYC -- because he snubbed a huge group of Potterheads outside the New York Times building. Even Will Smith stops for all his fans!

Might want to try that cloak of invisibility next time.

Evil Harry Potter Smites God-Fearing Librarian

5/28/2008 4:50 PM PDT
When you think "Harry Potter," you think of an evil, Occultist, pagan, heathen devil, don't you?

Well, in this lawsuit, a Missouri librarian refused to push the Potter books on kids because she was afraid that The Boss -- the Almighty One -- would bring his fury on her and cast her out if she did. Unfortunately, she ended up incurring the wrath of the boss -- the one who pays her rent -- and got herself canned as a result.

So now Deborah Smith has invoked the help of the highly secular ACLU, which is helping her sue the Poplar Bluff Library for money. You know, the earthly kind. Amen.

Hermione Ditches Hogwarts for Millionaire School

4/17/2008 11:49 AM PDT
Emma Watson turned 18 this week and got a $20 million (10.5 million GBP) present - plus a $10 check from grandma.

Watson received full access to her millions and has reportedly agreed to take a money management class offered for rich kids. Her dough is in Coutts Bank which offers a course for "children" aged 17-25 to ensure they don't spend all their coin on stuff like diamond encrusted shoe laces and pet robots.

The class is taught by former alumnus, Richie Rich. We kid, of course.

Hermione's rep did not return calls for comment.

Hermione Won't Flip the Bird

7/10/2007 2:05 PM PDT
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.

Harry Potter And the Disappearing Co-Star

9/28/2006 4:30 PM PDT
Admit it, you love the "Harry Potter" movies. The movies transcend age groups and have spawned millions of wizards-in-training. So are the much beloved tales about to lose one of its most important stars?

That's the situation Emma Watson has potentially created with her inability to make her mind up about signing up for the last two films. Emma, who plays Hermione Granger told Newsweek on a recent visit to the "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" set, " I don't know yet... I love to perform, but there are so many things I love doing."

Now before everyone panics and starts hiding beneath their invisibility cloaks, producer David Heyman says that Emma went through the same questioning process before signing on for the third and fourth films and he is cautiously optimistic that she will sign on for the last two.

Just to ease the situation, it might help if you keep your fingers crossed, your dragons in a row and chant a few spells and hopefully Hermione will stay enrolled at Hogwarts for a few more years.
