Whether they’re channeling excellent music taste or embracing the mantra of all-black everything, sometimes emo makes it to the big screen. From Janis Ian of Mean Girls to Wednesday Addams, here are movie characters who are so emo, they’ll have you saying, “SAME.”
1. Charlie (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower)
Charlie deals with some pretty traumatic stuff, and he copes the only way a true emo knows how by making and listening to mixtapes, eventually forming a special attachment to “Asleep” by the Smiths.
No matter who your actor of choice is, the many different versions of the caped crusader have been full-blown emo. The guy truly gives a whole new meaning to the word sulking.
3. Janis Ian (Mean Girls)
Janis is super in touch with her emotions and therefore the art of not caring. Plus, she totally crowdsurfed at that mandatory assembly in true emo fashion.
4. Kat Stratford (10 Things I Hate About You)
She expresses her true feelings through tear-filled poetry, which is pretty much the most emo thing ever.
5. Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Deadpool series)
The side-eye she serves is next level.
6. Lydia Deetz (Beetlejuice)
Lydia feels alone and ignored, so she befriends the strange and unusual in a totally emo move.
7. Allison Reynolds (The Breakfast Club)
When they’re dishing out stereotypes, she gets the basket case. We rest our case.
8. Norah (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist)
Norah’s idea of a great date is setting out on a search for a secret show by her favorite band, which only a true music lover would dig.
9. Eeyore (Winnie The Pooh series)
No one can compare to the melancholy that is Eeyore.
10. Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World)
Ramona has a lot of emotional baggage given her seven evil exes. Plus, her constantly color-changing hair is totally enviable.
11. Wednesday Addams (The Addams Family)
Wednesday’s all-black aesthetic speaks to our souls.
12. Nancy Downs (The Craft)
Nancy is peak emo with her anti-social tendencies and all-black outfit choices.
13. Sid (Toy Story)
Sid kept to himself as he tortured toys, which is probably for the best, but his overall demeanor is totally in line with the emos of the world.
