hieronder nog een stuk uit het interview dat Emma had met Vogue, haar volledige interview is te lezen in het tijdschrift dat a.s. vrijdag verschijnt.
As the actor and activist Emma Watson approaches 30, she talks to Paris Lees about her extraordinary life, and transcending child stardom to become a voice for change in the December issue of British Vogue.
The story of how Emma Watson became one of the most recognisable women on the planet is folklore of sorts. She was nine-years-old when she was picked out of a line-up of would-be actors in her school gym to be in a film that would change her life forever. Twenty years later, and that child star is now one of the world’s most bankable actors and recognised activists.
This Christmas, Watson is back on the big screen as Margaret “Meg” March in Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. The project couldn’t be a better fit for Emma, combining, as it does, many of her loves: literature, film and exploring the female experience. “With Meg’s character, her way of being a feminist is making the choice – because that’s really, for me anyway, what feminism is about,” Watson tells Lees. “Her choice is that she wants to be a full-time mother and wife. To Jo [Saoirse Ronan], being married is really some sort of prison sentence. But Meg says, ‘You know, I love him [John Brooke, who is played by James Norton] and I’m really happy and this is what I want. And just because my dreams are different from yours, it doesn’t mean they’re unimportant.”
