    Think about it. It’s the end of the day, you’re tired after a long day at work and really you just want to go home, make yourself a cuppa and get back to binging on your latest boxset.

    So, you’re now rushing through one of the busiest train stations in the world to go back to your safe space when you spot a man holding an iPad and a giant sign that reads ‘Advice from Emma Watson.’

    Yep, we’d stop in our tracks, too.

    American writer and editor Derek Blasberg (AKA good friend to the likes of Karlie Kloss etc) was offering up life advice from actress Emma Watson – who the world can’t wait to see in Beauty and The Beast – via an iPad in New York City’s Grand Central Station.

    It’s still unsure as to why or what this was for – we’re guessing some sort of philanthropy project – but people did actually talk to Emma about their life issues and pay up the $2 fare. You can see her here in full action:
