For many people, Emma Watson has had a presence in their lives for years. She starred as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series and has gone on to star in numerous other films, such as Beauty and the Beast and The Bling Ring.

However, being a famous actress is only the beginning. True to Hermione's character, she studied at Worcester College, Oxford and Brown University from 2011 to 2014, eventually earning a degree in English Literature from Brown. She's also done work as a model and fashion consultant. She certainly knows how to stay busy, and she has an amazing support network. She has plenty of celeb best friends to cheer her on along the way, and this list runs down the best friends of Emma Watson.

Some of her friends she met through her films. She's remained close to Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, who played Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, respectively. However, she also has some unlikely celebrity friendships, such as her friendship with Sophie Sumner, who was a winner on America's Next Top Model. Emma Watson and friends often bond over activism, as the HeForShe founder is passionate about intersectional feminism and making a change in the world. Another surprising Emma Watson friend - from her political activism - is the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau. 

But a lot of Watson's celebrity best friends are actors, such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Ezra Miller. Taylor Swift is another of Watson's celebrity friends, and with her passion for feminism, it's no wonder she wanted to make the Harry Potter star a member of her squad.
