Only at the Airport: Emma Watson Mistaken for Unaccompanied Minor
January 14, 2013 at 9:32 AM
We don’t have time to review the Twitter accounts of each and every famous person, as they do their best to navigate through the world’s airports. So we do apologize for missing this one a couple weeks ago, but we still think it’s worth mentioning. It seems that Emma Watson—famous for doing her thing as Hermione in the Harry Potter films—had a little difficulty with those passport checkers at the airport.
It sounds like she was getting ready to complete her holiday travel, as she was heading into JFK Airport on December 22. Apparently her star power didn’t translate well to the airport officials checking passports, as they were pretty sure that she was traveling by herself—as an unaccompanied minor.
She took to her Twitter account to share her airport funny, and commented how she’s not going to wear a backpack anymore thanks to creative use of the hashtag—#neverwearingabackpackagain. We’ve embedded the pair of her Tweets above, so you can check out things for yourself. Otherwise just make sure you follow us on Twitter, and we’ll let you know the next time a 22 year old celebrity is harassed at the airport for looking too young.
