    I realize this is beside the point of the Harry Potter article, but Emma Watson’s breasts/figure look rather digitally enhanced in the poster that is presented. Has there been any controversy surrounding this at all?

    Hmm. The Neville story – don’t you see the problems in equating the positive development of Neville’s character and the physical development of the actor? In film-land, yes, physical appearance might equate to positive attributes, but in real life, not necessarily. I found it just a bit of an excuse to leer over a good-looking young man. Problems.
