Now that Emma’s a serious college student, she couldn’t actually celebrate her b-day in Paris – so she went for the second best option by bringing Paris to her!
Emma Watson took some time out from hitting the books to throw herself one heck of a birthday bash April 14. The Harry Potter starlet rang in her 20’s with a Moulin Rouge-inspired party in Providence, RI. Ooh la la!
“Emma wanted the party to be low-key,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com of the Brown University freshman. “She kept it small with just a bunch of her friends from Brown.”
It isn’t surprising that the fashionable actress (and designer!) – whose actual birthday is today, April 15, would choose Moulin Rouge as her party theme, considering she’s mentioned it twice before!
“I would love to be in a musical. I want to sing. I want to do a crazy Baz Luhrmann Moulin Rouge sort of thing,” she told MTV News in 2008. Previously, back in 2006, she told ElleGirl that if she could listen to one song for the rest of her life, it would be “Roxanne” from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.
Happy birthday, Hermione….er, we mean Emma!
