* ContractualPurity: Has said she'd be willing to do nudity in films, presumably to avoid this trope. She's flirted with darker roles -- for example Sam in ''The Perks of Being a Wallflower'' was molested at a young age, and Nicki in ''The Bling Ring'' is a MsFanservice. She also joked that she's received about twenty Bibles as gifts from fans.

** She briefly considered leaving ''Film/HarryPotter'' after the fifth film, but soon realised she couldn't bear to see anyone else play Hermione. Ironically enough the reason she considered leaving was that she was finding it hard to keep up with her school work. She later joked at what a Hermione-ish thing to do it was.

* AbilityOverAppearance:[[invoked]] JK Rowling said it was very good that she spoke to Emma over the phone before meeting her in person - as she realised Emma was perfect for Hermione when she spoke for a whole minute without taking a breath. Then when she met the young actress, she realised she was much prettier than how she had imagined Hermione.
--> '''Creator/JKRowling''': "I just kind of had to go 'okay, okay, [[AdaptationalAttractiveness it's film]], deal with it.'"



* {{Corpsing}}: She was the subject of a featurette for ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' based around how often she lost it while filming scenes at Xenophilius's house. Rhys Ifans even nicknamed her 'giggles' and she had to be given a 'red card' (meaning sent off set to calm down).



* DyeingForYourArt: She became blonde to play Pauline in ''Literature/BalletShoes'', who is desirable because of her beautiful blonde hair. As a result, Hermione is also blonde in the fifth ''Harry Potter'' film.

* RealLifeWritesTheHairstyle:
** She had to dye her hair blonde for ''Literature/BalletShoes'' - and Hermione therefore has blonde hair in ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''.
** As noted above, she cut her hair into a pixie to celebrate finishing with the ''Harry Potter'' franchise, which is why she has short hair as Sam in ''Film/ThePerksOfBeingAWallflower''.



* WagTheDirector:[[invoked]] She felt Belle of ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' wouldn't wear a corset as part of her costume, despite the film trying to be slightly more historically accurate in terms of wardrobe.



** She turned down the role of Mia in ''Film/LaLaLand'' in order to star in ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017''. Creator/EmmaStone got the part after Damien Chazelle decided to make the protagonists a little older.
*** ''Film/LittleWomen'' reverses this, with Emma Watson taking the role of Meg March after Emma Stone dropped out.

* IAmNotSpock: She's gone to great lengths to avoid this since ''Harry Potter'' ended, cutting her hair short and pursuing very different roles - and not making it a secret that she'd be willing to do nudity. She has however said that she is very like Hermione in some ways.

* RealitySubtext: ''Film/MyWeekWithMarilyn'' was her first R-rated film, which is oddly paralleled in the scene where Colin and Lucy nearly do it - but get interrupted by her parents.

** She starred alongside Richard Griffiths in most of the ''Harry Potter'' movies and ''Literature/BalletShoes''. The latter also featured fellow ''Potter'' cast member Gemma Jones - who is only in three out of the eight films.

* BabyNameTrendStarter: Even the popularity of the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' films didn't suffice to put the girls' name [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Hermione]] into the [[https://www.ssa.gov/oact/babynames/ top thousand female baby names]], let alone the top ten (unlike, say, the less popular single film ''Film/{{Splash}}'' with Madison). However, ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' no doubt caused Emma's own name (already rising in popularity) to bump from 13th (in 2001) to 4th (in 2002) -- a jump much bigger than the ranks suggest. Emma has been in the top three girls' names every year since then.



** She uses the F-word several times in ''Film/ThisIsTheEnd''. Bonus points for being called Hermione after robbing a group of men, in the quote at the top of her Creator page.
