Emma Watson celebrates a birthday today.

And although it may seem hard to believe – because she’s been in our lives for so long and because she comes across as more mature than many celebrities twice her age – the young woman behind Hermione Granger is only 22 years old.

Watson will next be seen in The Bling Ring, a film based on a real-life clique of fame-obsessed teenagers used tracked the whereabouts of various stars – from Paris Hilton to Orlando Bloom to Ashley Tisdale to Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan – in order to rob their homes.

It will be released some time in 2013.
