Is Emma Watson being a diva on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows set?

harry potter location 120509

I never thought I’d hear the words “diva” and “Emma Watson” in the same sentence. But new reports from Wales – where the next two installments of the Harry Potter series are being shot back-to-back – tell another story. Production staffers on the movie say that Emma has always been the “most testy,” but that it has gotten even worse for this movie and she’s been “more ofa pain than usual.” The “diva” title has been given to her because she shows up late, and is always complaining.

Of all the “Harry Potter” stars, Emma Watson always has been the most “testy,” according to a production staffer who has worked on most of the films based on J.K. Rowling’s super-popular novels about the famous boy wizard.

But word coming from Wales — where “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″ is being shot (back-to-back with “Part 2″) — has the young actress being “more of a pain than usual.”

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and the rest of the cast “are a dream to work with,” said the source Wednesday, “But Emma is even more moody than usual. … She’s always complaining, showing up late and has upset both cast and crew members with her rudeness. … She’s really become a big diva. … Everyone’s sick of it.”

[from Chicago Sun Times]

Emma has never struck me in the least as a diva, but maybe she’s just good at covering it up for the press. She’s always seemed like a sweet, intelligent girl to me. She’s said in the past that she has problems being sexy, and she’s nervous about kissing Rupert Grint (who plays Ron) in the new movie. She’s also looking forward to going to college in the fall.

On the other hand, this could just be a total crock. I hope so – I want to think that there is at least one young actress out there that isn’t an entitled diva.

Here’s Emma Watson filming on the Pembrokeshire Coast set of ‘Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows’ on Tuesday. Images thanks to .

    she’s a teenager and they’re working her ass off. i’d be moody, too.

    It’s false. The original source for the article is a tabloid, and other on-set reports that are actually true never mentioned any of this behavior, in fact one person described her as lovely despite the paparazzi bothering her. And in the pics you can see she is either walking calmly on the beach or is smiling while taking pictures, signing autographs, and waving at people. All credible reports state that she is a nice, down to earth, intelligent girl. The real question is why someone would write this garbage

  3. KimiD says:

    Highly doubt this is the case. Agreed Flourpot. Someone just looking to spit on her image. I mean, trust the girl is likely no saint, but combined with the article DanRad just gave about Brit child actors being more manageable than their US counter parts, this seems too convenient.

  4. j. ferber says:

    Leave the girl alone. Maybe she was being assertive and it was immediately translated into “bitch.”

    here!here! Flourpot!

  7. Bob says:

    But isn’t never being a diva give you leniency to be a diva? It should

  8. ! says:

    I doubt this report. I don’t believe a single word of it. If this girl was truly a diva, then her interviews would reflect it.

  9. Kat says:

    It’s all utter B.S.

    I needn’t point out the double standard.

  10. czarina says:

    How would they sell magazines if they couldn’t accuse someone of being “difficult” or a “diva”??

  11. Joe says:

    uhm…the “posse” pic pretty much confirms Divaness…worked on 35 major films with much bigger stars and I have never seen that many people accompanying one actor to the set.

  12. Trashaddict says:

    Joe, did I miss something? To what “posse pic” are you referring? The one with about 4 people around her? How do you know they are not part of the film crew??? Anyway, if there is any diva-like behavior, I’m betting the double standard applies.

  13. Mairead says:

    Well Joe – I don’t know about the 35 films you’ve worked on, but in the UK, manual staff on any project, from concerts to construction wear PPE gear like the two fellas in front.

    Perhaps yours were small films, or not properly compliant with Health & Safety regulations?

  14. Rodney Bone says:

    She’s probably being cranky because she has an unbelievable amount of pent up sexual frustration. I would be willing to help her with that.

  15. HP Fan says:

    She’s strikingly beautiful.

  16. loldongs says:

    If that’s the case, then why are Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe so easy to work with?



  17. Joe says:

    We refer to the AD’s, PA’s and Security as “posse”. Typically only the 2nd 2nd or the Key PA would accompany an actor to the set. On rare occasions a Security guard.

    Actors I have worked with that have only had the 2nd 2nd or Key PA walk them to the set with no security: Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page, Robert Deniro, Wil Ferell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Jude Law, John Cusack, America Ferrara, Carmen Diaz, Robin WIlliams, etc, etc.

    Not “small” films or talent, Mairead.

    Steve Martin didn’t like to have anyone walk with him. All I am saying is that is an awful lot of crew members to walk a one trick pony actor to a set. Reeks of needy divaness.

  18. Mairead says:

    Fair enough Joe, you’ve the advantage of knowing who each person in that photo is or the significance of the colour-coding on the tags – I don’t.

    I just saw the Hi-Viz jackets and assumed they were crew, just not necessarily security.

  19. reesa says:

    Or – she’s a teen star, and the extra security is to protect her from paps or fans ready to pounce.

  20. orion70 says:

    Rodney, wipe off your screen and go to bed.

  21. Joe says:

    Mairead…lol…doesn’t matter…i admit i shouldn’t be judging based on a picture…she is quite cute and also young…what the hell do I know…just a bit of jousting….we are all divas in one way or another aren’t we.

  22. Taya says:

    Emma seems like a complete diva to me. The only reason why she is in show buisness anyway is because her Aunt Julia, who by the way is a major whore, is a famous actress. This girl is looks like such a spoiled brat.

  23. andy says:

    only a matter of time i guess!

  24. jkate says:

    Taya, you’re thinking of Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts’ niece. Emma WATSON has no famous aunt Julia.

  25. spiceh says:

    Taya, who’s her Aunt Julia u were referring to? Watson did mention that her family members are not involved in the entertainment industry.

  26. Lem says:

    dude the last set of pics showed the poor girl in a flimsy dress whilst all the boy folk were jacketed and scarfed. She probably just cold.

  27. DiMi says:

    I don’t believe it. I think somebody jealous is spreading rumors.

  28. Lita says:

    Hi Joe – cannot tell anyone anything about anything (one of the beauties of working in marketing, phew!) but pray tell .. What is a 2nd 2nd??!!

  29. anonymous says:

    This article mentions, twice, that Emma Watson, is late and always complaining! There is no mention, of how late, or what exactly it is, that she’s complaining about. As if someone just decided to write that down, and repeat it again, to fill the space, of the article. She hardly seems the type, to be demanding. People throw the words diva, & posse, around like it applies to anyone. A typical, story of how writers think, that people in entertainment, should be knocked down. That’s just rotten.

  30. Joe says:

    2nd 2nd Assistant Director in Directors Guild of America is 2nd person under the 1st Assistant Director. The 2nd 2nd’s job is production reports, tracking talent in between shots and coordinating background extras among other duties. In the Directors Guild of Great Britain this job is titled Third Assistant Director

  31. Peter says:

  32. O says:
