It's interesting looking at VF Hollywood issues over the years and seeing who made it on top and who sizzled out. I fear Emma is falling into the latter category already.

I don't think she'll fizzle out cuz she has too much drive. I think she's dangerously close to Rachel McAdams territory though: a talented actress who lets herself get typecasted into safe romantic comedies/vanilla roles.

She's contracted for Spiderman, but she could step away from the other popcorn flicks picks she keeps doing and try something more edgy/indie. (Basically, take a page from Jennifer Lawrence maybe?)

i have to disagree. i think although her look has gotten away from her lately, the talent is still there. albiet, yes, jennifer lawrence for instance has a bigger range and will be the top actress people reach out to for coveted rules, emma has staying power and the industry still adores her. besides spider-man, she's got her cameron crowe movie (which, nobody really knows the details of positively yet) and is rumored to be in guillermo del toro's next horror flic which is nothing like she's ever done before. i think even she knows she has to step outside the box and her comfort zone. i remember her saying, i believe at the gangster squad premiere, that she is interested in doing more indie flicks and attaching herself to interesting projects that need help with funding.

I for once don't really see the reason for panicking. Her career is going well, she has some really nice projects coming and I can only see her going up from here.

But about the hair, I agree. Blonde really washes her out, especially with the bangs. The red hair used to ad a great singularity to her, I hope she goes back to it asap.

Right? All this because her hair isn't on point right now?

lol wait just because she did a major worldwide press conference and hasn't been smothering the limelight with her presence for a few months means she's sizzling out? what. god forid she slow down a little. she's not a cw star who can't get work. we go months without hearing about michelle williams and then she always pops up in another amazing role.

More because she was terrible in the awful Gangster Squad and has yet to show any range. Her limited skills + fading looks could turn her into the next Alicia Silverstone.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought these comments were a little strange. While I think eventually she'll fade out (and that she's a little overexposed at the moment), it's certainly not a year after The Amazing Spider-Man. She still has the Cameron Crowe project.

Maybe, but I don't think she has to worry about that just yet.

Maybe Emma WILL take a page from Jennifer Lawrence now that they're becoming friends.

I'm glad Emma got to meet her as she cites Jennifer as one of her inspirations. I think Emma has to find what works for her career wise whilst taking risks. For example Carey Mulligan, who I am a big fan of, recognised she was in danger of getting typecast so she went for incredibly diverse supporting roles which has paid off really well. Guillermo takes forever and day to actually get his projects going so that isn't going to happen for a while but if it does, I think it will be good for her.

I think Emma certainly has the skills and the range to do whatever genre. For anyone that has seen "Paper Man", that character was much unlike any of her other more well-known roles and she pulled it off brilliantly. We all know she does the "funny girl" exceptionally well but it will be nice to see her venture into darker, more dramatic roles in the future.

Yeah, while she's obviously well-known for her comedic roles, I think she's more than capable of doing dramatic ones just as well. I honestly think she has a lot of staying power if she plays her cards right.
