Stephen Chobsky’s much-anticipated The Perks of Being a Wallflower finally hits theaters tonight, and we spoke to stars Nina Dobrev and Erin Wilhelmi to get the inside scoop on just what went down during filming—on and off the screen. From ’90s costume choices to working with Emma Watson for her first big American film (complete with a Pennsylvania accent!), click through to read what the actress’s had to say about their new film.
Perks of Being a Wallflower comes out in theatres September 21st, and although we’re most looking forward to seeing Emma Watson‘s adorable pixie cut on the big screen, we also can’t wait to get our hands on the film’s soundtrack, which landed in stores today. It’s an ultimate mixtape of ’80s and ’90s classics, including songs from The Smiths and David Bowie, and it perfectly accompanies Stephen Chbosky’s cult-favorite novel-turned-film. Plus, Perks’s music supervisor, Alexandra Patsavas, is also behind the music from The Twilight Saga, including the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 2, so there’s bound to be a few romantic ballads to swoon for, too.

Emma Watson certainly stepped away from the wall last night, as she shone alongside co-stars Ezra Miller and Erin Wilhelmi in a white BROOD mini (an up-and-coming brand she loves!) at The Cinema Society and Lancome’s screening of her new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York. The actress talked about how she got into her role of Sam for the film: “By just asking a load of questions, and talking to [co-stars] Ezra [Miller] and Logan [Lerman] about their high school experiences.” Catch the movie in theaters September 21, and click through the gallery to see more stars from last night’s biggest events.
After a whirlwind finale for Harry Potter last year, Emma Watson will return to the spotlight next month with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, out September 21st. And her pixie cut won’t be coming with her. The dramatic ‘do she showed off all last year is growing into a long bob, a look we often see her wear while out and about with her beau Will Adamowicz (the two met at Oxford). While we’ll miss her short crop, it will live on forever in our Hollywood Makeover Tool. Try on her style (and others, too), and be sure to share your transformation on Facebook and Twitter.

Break out the wands and conjure up a cake, because today is Harry Potter’s birthday! It’s been five years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows‘s literary release and a summer since the film of the same name hit theaters, but we’re no closer to being over the boy wizard (portrayed by Daniel Radcliffe in the films) or his best friends, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson). So to celebrate, we’ve rounded up the best of our Harry Potter content, from the stars’ on-screen transformations to the fashion at the final premiere. Scroll down to see it all! More
From Stephen Chbosky’s book to the big screen, the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower is here!

The film also stars The Vampire Diaries‘ Nina Dobrev as Charlie’s sister and Paul Rudd as an English teacher. Watch the full trailer above! The movie hits theaters September 14th.
