Emma Watson is a natural beauty. She’s lit up the screen as Hermione in the Harry Potter movies and will be hitting the big screen soon in the highly anticipated Beauty and the Beast. And now, a doll has been made in her likeness as her Beauty and the Beast character, Belle.
Only, her doll form isn’t quite so gorgeous as the real thing. In fact, it bears resemblance to a certain bratty pop star. Yep, Emma’s new doll looks just like Justin Bieber.
And not just a little bit either. Once you see a side-by-side comparison, all you can see is Bieber and not so much Watson. It’s…creepy, really. Did they take an old Justin Bieber doll and just plop on some freckles, long hair, and a dress?
Colorado photographer William Herrington first posted a pic of the doll on Flickr after seeing it at a JCPenney. You can imagine the whole thing took off from there.
William told BuzzFeed: “I knew that Disney Store’s live-action dolls are never 100% accurate to the actors, but this one was atrocious!”
He added, “Her face was shiny and covered in freckles (that looked more like a skin disease) and her head looked like it was being ripped open and torn where the hair was rooted into the head.”
William noted, “As for any resemblance to Emma…yeesh. There really isn’t any.”
But the resemblance is strong with Bieber.
