Emma Watson Named “Most Dangerous Celebrity” to Search for Online

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


Emma Watson fans, beware: searching for the Harry Potter star online could harm your computer.

Watson is the “most dangerous celebrity” to search for, according to an Internet study by security software company McAfee.

There’s a one-in-eight chance that searching for the actress will lead to a malicious site, with users potentially getting a virus or having personal information stolen.

Jessica Biel and Eva Mendes ranked second and third, respectively, with Selena Gomez and Megan Fox also high on the list.

McAfee says the results this year proved that female celebrities are far more dangerous to search for than males, with Jimmy Kimmel the only guy in the Top 20.

Last year’s chart-topper, Heidi Klum, failed to make the Top 10.
