JFK airport stops Emma Watson, thinks she is a minor
Actress Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame was left red-faced at an airport when she was stopped by officials who thought she was too young to be travelling alone. The 22-year-old Harry Potter star was travelling in December 2012 when the embarrassing incident occurred at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, and she reveals it is not the first time she has been mistaken for an unaccompanied minor, usually deemed to be children under the age of 14.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, she wrote, “Passport control: ‘Unaccompanied minor?’ Me: ‘Sorry?’ Passport control: ‘Where is ur (your) guardian?’ Me: ‘I’m 22!!!!!!!’ Never wearing a backpack again... The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened.”
