Emma Watson Did Not Cut Hair for ‘Dragon Tattoo’ Role

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates

A major rumor emerged today, courtesy of The Sun, which claims that Harry Potter star Emma Watson chopped off her hair to land the most coveted role in movies — Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

According to the paper, Watson’s new pixie cut is no simple style switch. It’s allegedly part of her strategy to win the Salander competition.

“Emma has auditioned with director David Fincher and cut her hair to look the part,” says the Sun‘s “movie insider,” since the film’s title character is a “misfit goth-type girl with spikey hair.”

So is it true that the woman who grew up as the proper Hermione Granger got the new ‘do to play the Dragon franchise’s star?


The rumor is “absolutely false on all accounts,” a rep for Watson tells Gossip Cop.

So ignore those reports of the actress ditching her hair to play the heroine.
