Emma Watson

Current age: 24

Career at 20: In 2010, Emma ended her freshman year at Brown University, then kicked off her second before taking a break and eventually returning in Fall 2013. She also wrapped up filming for the Harry Potter franchise in 2010, promoting the first installment of the final chapter. Afterward, no longer having to play Hermione Granger, she cut her hair into a pixie cut. Emma also began negotiations for her role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and starred in the "Say You Don't Want It" music video for the British indie band One Night Only.

Relationship status at 20: Emma has been quiet about her personal life over the years, but she did say that fame made dating difficult at Brown, explaining that people must have been intimidated by the "fame wall."

Quoted at 20: In the December 2010 issue of Marie Claire, Emma talked about growing up, saying, "To be honest, I've always had far too much freedom. I had a job when I was 10. I started living on my own when I was 17 or 18. I've earned my own money; I've traveled the world. What would I rebel against?"
