Emma Watson's haircut sparked rumors about her sexuality

She tells British newspaper The Independent, "I had journalists asking me if this meant I was coming out, if I was a lesbian now. That haircut did make me realize how subjective everyone's opinion is. Some people were crazy for it and some people just thought I'd lost my s**t."

However, the 21 year old insists she's learned a valuable lesson: "All I can do is follow my instincts because I'll never please everyone."
