Oh, JK Rowling Crashed the Pottermore Website? Well, Emma Watson Brought Down the Whole U.N.

By Vivian Kane | Celebrities Are Better than You | July 8, 2014 | Comments ()


You may have heard that JK Rowling crashed the Pottermore website by releasing a new short story. To which Emma Watson replied (in my imagination), “Oh, you crashed your little wizard fan site? That’s cute. I JUST CRASHED THE WHOLE F*CKING UNITED NATIONS.” Yes, that’s probably exactly what she said.

Emma Watson has been appointed as a UN Women as a Goodwill Ambassador (along with Nicole Kidman), where she’ll focus on “empowerment of young women and will serve as an advocate for UN Women’s HeForShe campaign.” Watson announced the news on Twitter:

Those little tweets drove so much traffic to the UN Women’s website that it crashed.

Next up: Daniel Radcliffe will crash Craigslist by putting an old sofa up for sale, thereby completing the Harry Potter Internet Takedown of 2014.

    The weird thing about Emma Watson is that I love her, but don't always quite know why. So every time she does something cool, I feel a little more secure in my love. Which clearly is the important thing here.

    How much is Radcliffe's couch? Do you have pics?

  • emmalita

    It may be permeated with dog hair and cigarette smoke. On the other hand it is Harry Potter cigarette smoke, so probably expensive.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm still amazed that all the main Potter kids have turned out so well. They are amazing adults. Compare to them to child actors Hollywood has cranked out, Lindsay Lohan, Macauley Caulkin, etc. and I suffer from fremdschämen. I can think of very few American child actors who have turned out well as adults. (I did not say NONE. There are a few good ones, Elijah Wood, Danica McKellar, Mayim Bialik.)

    I remember Daniel on Graham Norton talking about how protective he was
    of the child actors in the film he was promoting as they had been so
    well looked after on Harry Potter he wanted everyone else to have that
    great an experience.

  • Bananapanda

    Fred Savage said the same thing about directing kids.

  • stella

    Mara Wilson turned out awesome too...

  • Maddy

    I didn't think it was possible to love her more. YAY HERMIONE.

  • logan

    I think Emma looks the very personification or a proper young Englishwoman in that pic.

  • denesteak

    The header photo of her makes her look like a live-action version of an anime character.

  • stella

    Omg Hermione would be so proud of her! But seriously, kudos to you Ms Watson.

  • John W

    Kudos to her and Nicole Kidman.

  • NateMan

    Sadly, it was probably the first time the site was actually used.
