Emma Watson Has an Adorable Response to Emma Roberts ‘Harry Potter’ Reunion Photo Gaffe

”I was NOT this cute,“ Watson wrote on Instagram

Emma Watson seems to be totally fine with HBO Max mistaking a childhood photo of Emma Roberts for one of her. And according to the actress, Roberts was a much cuter child.

Early on in the “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” special, Watson (who played Hermione Granger in the franchise), reflects on the impact of the Potter books on her family when she was a kid. As she recounts her memories, a photo of a young Emma flashes on screen. Only the photo wasn’t of a young Emma Watson. Instead, the pic was of a baby-faced Emma Roberts of “Scream Queens.”

The photo, showing Roberts in a pair of Minnie Mouse ears and enjoying what appears to be a breakfast plate, was originally posted by the actress way back in 2012.

On Wednesday, Watson laughed the mix-up off on her Instagram. She re-posted the erroneous photo, captioned with a shoutout to Roberts. “I was NOT this cute,” Watson wrote, adding the hashtag “Emma sisters forever” and tagging Roberts for good measure.

Roberts responded via her Instagram story, writing “Haha! I don’t believe that!” alongside Watson’s post. The “Scream 4” star added in a few kiss print emojis, as well as the twins emoji for good measure.

While it took the actresses a few days to respond, fans were on it almost immediately. Shortly after “Return to Hogwarts” hit the streaming service on New Year’s Day, fans on Twitter pointed out the mix-up. In response, the producers of the show praised fans’ attention to detail and quickly removed the photo from the special.

“Well spotted Harry Potter fans! You brought an editing mistake of a mislabeled photograph to our attention. New version is up now,” a statement to TheWrap read.
