After spending seven years gallivanting around England largely unsupervised with her friends while fending off the minions of He Who Must Not Be Named, you’d think Emma Watson could handle entering the United States alone. Last month, however, the 22 year old actress, best known for her role as Harry Potter’s friend Hermione Granger, was stopped by passport control at JFK, who though she was an unaccompanied minor.
Watson(@EmWatson) took to Twitter and wrote, “Passport control: ‘Unaccompanied minor?’ Me: ‘Sorry?’ Passport control: ‘Where is ur (your) guardian?’ Me: ‘I’m 22!!!!!!!’ Never wearing a back pack again… The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened.”

We guess there are Death Eaters everywhere. Best be careful, Ms. Watson.
