Growing up is already so difficult but imagine what its like for young actors who blossom on the big screen! Emma Watson, who grew up before our eyes in eight Harry Potter films alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, has grown up to be a very mature and extremely fashionable young woman and is featured on the cover of Glamour Magazine’s October issue.
Wearing a Zadig & Voltaire coat, Nina Ricci dress, Stella McCartney bra and Salvatore Ferragamo necklace, the 22-year-old was photographed by Alexei Hay in London. During her interview, Emma opened up about her post-Potter career, getting caught kissing a boy at Coachella, and her hair!
Here are some excerpts from her feature:
On what acting in her new film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, made her realize about her career…
“Making this movie was so pivotal for me because I realized I do really want to be an actress, which wasn’t something I fully knew, since Harry Potter was such a singular experience. Obviously I’m nervous to see what other people think, but it kind of doesn’t matter to me. It’s so cheesy to say this, but it’s the journey, not the end goal, that’s important.”
On the paparazzi, and being caught kissing someone at Coachella…
“I know! My friend got me tickets for my birthday, and what am I going to say? No, I’m not going to go, because I don’t want to be photographed? But it was a huge crowd, and I thought there was no way anyone could get pictures of me, but somehow they found me. It’s difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!”
On working with a stylist…
“Yeah, I have to at this point. When I was younger, I used to do it all myself, but I’ve had to get help because it’s gotten to a stage where I can’t show up in my Converses or whatever I bought from High Street. And just practically, these gowns are ridiculous. You’re being photographed from every angle, so not only do you have to consider how the thing looks, but whetheryou’re going to be able to sit in it and whether people are going to be able to see up your skirt.”
