About Harry Potter (2004): "One of the things about Harry Potter that makes it so great is that young children can watch it to grannies... I mean, everyone has something on so many different levels that they can relate to with Harry Potter. And magic isn't just something the kids want to believe either, I think it's escapism. Everyone, somewhere, wants to believe that magic is real and that there is Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry... I know I would like to go! (laughs)."

Emma in Nylon and Elle

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller were featured in Nylon magazine, credit to septimiu29 for the scans.



Elle also has a feature on Emma in their Women in Hollywood issue. Thank you to SaRa for sending in a transcript.

As Harry Potter’s wand-wielding, scene-stealing, know-it-all sidekick Hermione Granger, Emma Watson grew up before our eyes. Now she’s working her magic in a series of challenging, high-profile adult roles. Hogwarts? What Hogwarts?

In 2001, a reedy-voiced, frizzy-haired slip of a girl in a school cloak and tie slid open a train door on the Hogwarts Express and uttered her opening line: “Has anyone seen a toad?” Thus the world met Emma Watson, who, at nine years old, beat out squillions of other hopefuls for the role of magical Muggleborn witch Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. “I just knew, from the moment I read it, that I was meant to play that role,” says Watson, now 22 and having undergone, over the course of the nine Potter films, a Polyjuice Potion–worthy transformation from that tiny, tenacious Hogwarts newbie into a gamine, self-possessed, exceptionally charismatic grown-up. “My first impression of her was that she was so young and successful and beautiful, but had so much to prove to herself. That gave her a lot of depth, and also a touch of loneliness,” says Stephen Chbosky, who directed Watson’s first major post-Potter role, in an adaptation of his 1999 best-selling novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, about a group of high school misfits. As Sam, a troubled but tenderhearted teen, she projects both a surprisingly mature emotional intelligence and a riveting, bursting-from-the-screen energy. “She is one hell of a leading lady,” Chbosky says.

The Graduate By WILL SELF | August 17, 2012 New York Time T-Magazine

Emma Watson, the onetime co-star of the most successful movie franchise ever, is a very grateful and a very lucky person. How do I know that? Because I sat down with the 22-year-old in a gastropub in a trendy neighborhood of North London, and in the course of an hour’s conversation she said “grateful” five times and “lucky” eight. True, of those five “grateful”s two were of the “ungrateful” form — yet these were embedded in clauses like “I felt guilty because I felt like that meant I was ungrateful. . . .” So, as you can see, Watson is a young woman who wants it put firmly on the record that she understands human lives are shaken up in the snow globe of uncertainty, and that simply because she’s ended up being covered in golden flakes, she doesn’t take it as her due, oh, no.


Emma Attached to del Toro’s “Beauty”

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Variety is reporting that Emma Watson is in final negotiations to star in Beauty, Guillermo del Toro’s vision of the classic tale of ‘The Beauty and the Beast’ for Warner Bros. Rumours of Emma’s involvement began last July when producer Denise Di Novi, who is working on the project with del Toro, said Emma was lined up to star. In August, del Toro confirmed that he would like to direct Emma in Beauty, saying “I think she is the perfect character to do that movie.” del Toro now plans to direct as well as produce the film. Emma has said a few times over the years she would like to work with del Toro.

Beauty is said to be loosely based on the novel Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of the Beauty and the Beast by Robin McKinley. Warner Bros. has hired Andrew Davies (“Brideshead Revisited”, “The Three Musketeers”, “Bridget Jones’ Diary”) to write the screenplay.

Update: According to Robin McKinley, she knows nothing about all this, other than Warner’s did option her novel in the past. She thinks it unlikely the movie will be made, and if it is, that it will have nothing in common with her novel beyond the Beauty/Beast premise. Perhaps it will be a loose adaption of just the title. Thanks to Jay for bringing this up.

In an interview for MTV’s Rough Cut, Guillermo del Toro has confirmed that he would love to direct Emma in a remake of Beauty and the Beast, saying “It’s a movie that you have to make in the next few years for Emma to be perfect for the part. I think she is the perfect character to do that movie.” So, Emma is being considered for the role, but this may be another project that goes nowhere. del Toro says he has started writing the storyline, but he also says “I really hope to do (the movie)”, not that he will.

Emma in Beauty and the Beast?

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

So, the latest movie rumor making the rounds has Emma starring in another remake of Beauty and the Beast, by Guillermo del Toro. While promoting another film, producer Denise Di Novi told that she was working on the project with del Toro, and that Emma Watson ‘is lined up to star’. There’s no confirmation from other sources, but that one line was enough to spread the rumor across the net. We’ll have to wait and see if there’s anything in it.
