Commutes are stressful for everyone—but there are few things as heart-racingly and claustrophobically miserable as navigating New York City’s Grand Central Station during rush hour. On Valentine’s Day, however, travelers were greeted by a familiar (and stress-reducing) face: Emma Watson.
In an endearingly wacky act of public service, the actress and UN ambassador was giving out advice (at $2 a pop), via FaceTime from an undisclosed location, Mashable reports.
Taking inspiration from Lucy in Charlie Brown, CNN style editor and reporter Derek Blasberg carried a portable advice desk around his neck—with an iPad broadcasting Watson’s face and a money jar—while he wrangled those who sought the 26-year-old’s counsel.
And although you can’t quite hear her responses in the few clips scattered on social media, from what we know about the super-inspiring star, I’ll bet Watson’s advice was top-notch. (Plus, there was a full camera crew in tow, so fingers crossed that she unveils the footage publicly.)
