JFK air­port stops Emma Wat­son, thinks she is a mi­nor

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

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.”
