Emma Watson Stopped At Airport, Mistaken As A ChildBy Marhgil Macuha on Jan 9, 2013 in Entertainment, Hollywood, Lifestyle, Travel •
British actress Emma Watson was stopped at JFK Airport in New York after she was mistaken as a child and travelling unaccompanied by an adult.
According to reports on Monday, January 7, 2013, the Harry Potter star tweeted about the incident, saying, “Passport control: ‘Unaccompanied minor?’ Me: ‘Sorry?’ Passport control: ‘Where is ur guardian?’ Me: ‘I’m 22!!!!!!!’ #neverwearingabackpackagain.”
Apparently, Watson was wearing a backpack when it happened last month, December, 2012. According to Watson as quoted in the reports, this is not the first time it happened to her.
“Emma was mortified. Not only did they not recognise her, they thought she was a child. It was very embarrassing but she managed to awkwardly laugh it off,” a source reportedly told the Sunday People newspaper.
Watson was later allowed to enter through security after she was able to convince them of her age, reports said.
