Emma Watson Held At Airport For Looking ... Too Young?

No, "Unaccompanied Minor" isn't the name of her latest film (though it does have a certain ring to it)—it's how customs agents at JFK mistakenly identified her when she flew into the airport over the Christmas holidays.

The "Harry Potter" star, who's been able to legally drink in the states for over a year at this point, revealed the incident herself through a series of Twitter posts. As reported by the New York Daily News, Watson said the agents asked where her parent or legal guardian was as she made her way through customs. She lamented, "The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this happened."

But how did it go down this time? According her tweets, it went something like this: "Passport control: 'Unaccompanied minor?' Me: 'Sorry?' Passport control: 'Where is ur (your) guardian?' Me: 'I'm 22!!!!!!'"

She did learn something from her experience, however. "Never wearing a backpack again," she declared. Now, while we're happy she took away such a valuable lesson, we're also kind of bummed for her... because backpacks are a wonderful way to travel.

But who knows, now that she's become such an international style icon, maybe some enterprising fashion house will design a custom backpack just for her that's sophisticated enough for an actress who has reached the ripe old age of 22.
