The 22-year-old, who shot to fame by playing Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" series, says she felt really comfortable and confident after she cut her hair short, reported Daily Mirror.
"Of course, men like long hair. There's no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, 'Why did you do that? That's such an error'.
And I was like, 'Well, honestly, I don't really care what you think!' "I've never felt so confident as I did with short hair - I felt really good in my own skin. If I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever," she said.
