WHEN Emma Watson showed up on the red carpet at the New York premiere of her new film Noah, she looked like the belle of the ball.

But from a look at the contents of her handbag, it appears that even the multi-million pound actress has bad hair days.

The Oxfordshire actress tweeted a picture of the full contents of her handbag in New York on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old actress who went to Headington School, known for playing Hermione in the film adaptations of J K Rowling’s Harry Potter novels, shared the picture on Twitter with the words: “Couldn’t have survived today without.”

The picture shows full make-up kit, sweets and spare knickers.

Oxford Mail Friday Life columnist Anusha Couttigane said: “From the look of it, Emma Watson has a well curated kit of handbag essentials.

“The best bit has got to be the can of Batiste: don’t tell us that our Harry Potter princess actually uses dry shampoo?”

Noah, the Biblical epic featuring Russell Crowe, opens in the UK on April 4.
