While reading the series I thought, "Wait, wait, wait, when did Ginny go from the shy girl who'd hide every time she saw Harry to this kick-hand Quidditch player, bat-boogey hexer, and popular boy-magnet/love of Harry's life?"
In the later books she seems to be Lilly Potter re-born. When does this happen? It's magic.
And another thing, why do the movies make Ginny look so plain? Bonnie Wright is not that plain.
I have proof. -->
Maybe it's her acting. Every time there's a love scene between her and Harry, I want to excuse myself just so I don't have to be SO UNCOMFORTABLE and AWKWARD!
Won't somebody please help us!? Anybody!? Oh the awkwardness!!!!
OK - Here's an edit. I agree with Jamie in the comments; the magazine cover is not that great of a photo to show you what I mean, because she's obviously very made-up. Here's another photo of her where she's not so made-up, and she's not so plain-Jane either.
Not convinced??? Here's some more.
So why are all of those pictures gorgeous, yet in the movie she's just awkward-sauce?
UPDATE: No. I'll have to make another post for this update. See this.
