Growing up in the public eye must be crazy, playing the same role for a decade must be nuts. But Emma Watson did it. Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" series, is literally one of the coolest people ever.

Not only is that Louis Vuitton, it's recycled polyester.

But let's not forget THE DRESS
6. She chose to continue her education and went to Brown University after Harry Potter.
7. She was on the Brown University field hockey team.
8. Before Harry Potter, things weren't always sunshine and rainbows for the Watsons. In an interview, she revealed "I was very well-educated. My dad paid for me to go to a very good school but um, you know, when my parents got divorced we didn't have any money for a while," and "My birthday presents was my school uniform and pencil cases. And I think that's one of the reasons why my education means so much to me..."

11. She can beat box, just as Lin-Manuel Miranda.
