Emma Watson to star in Perks of Being a Wallflower

Pin it

Just because the Harry Potter movie franchise is coming to a close this summer doesn't mean that Emma Watson's done being moody. On the contrary, the girl whom we all feel like we helped raise is set to keep the angst alive in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, in which Watson will play that wallflower's love interest 

For those with short memories, Perks is a young-adult novel put out by MTV in the late '90s, long before "snooki" was a proper noun, and was one of MTV's first forays into publishing. It centers around the letters of a fifteen-year-old outcast who in his journey encounters themes like drugs, homosexuality, sex, and suicide. 

Which is exactly what parents would let their kids see these days! No, wait, it's not at all
