Some outlets should know better than to try to make a wizard disappear.

A rumor that Harry Potter star Emma Watson has been dropped as the face of fashion house Burberry in favor of Transformers beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is everywhere this morning.

Sky News reported that Watson had helped boost sales for the company over the course of their partnership, but was going to be “sidelined” for a future campaign. Soon enough, and other major sites perpetuated the story that Watson was “canned.”

But Gossip Cop found out the Hogwarts heroine’s supposed ouster is hogwash.

Huntington-Whiteley’s rep tells us the actress-model’s involvement with Burberry is nothing new, and that she is not “replacing” Watson, who will remain with Burberry.

It looks like the only star for whom Huntington-Whiteley is a full-fledged substitute is Megan Fox.
