We previously reported that Emma Watson (Hermione in the Harry Potter films) would be on the front cover of the US and UK editions of Glamour magazine’s October issue to promote her latest film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Thanks to one of our HPP fans, we have scans of the interview with Emma Watson from the US edition of the magazine in our photo gallery.
In the interview, Watson mentions how her character Sam in Perks is quite a different school girl from Hermione, other than the fact that Sam is an American:
Glamour: Your character, Sam, is rebellious–she experiments with drugs and has quite a sexual history. I’ve read that in real life, you’re pretty straitlaced.
EW: Oh yes, Sam’s real. She has insecurities and a past. She’s very human, and that’s what drew me to play her. There are just so many teenage roles that don’t have very much to do with what it’s actually like to be a teenager.
Watson confessed that she did cry a lot upon seeing herself on-screen in Perks during her first view of the film because “It was a pretty emotional experience!” Yet, she did have the stamina to persuade studio executives to fund the film, even though they were reluctant to do so due to “the difficult subject matter” in the story.
“It felt very empowering to be able to get something made that I really believed in.”
The actress also confirms that she is in the middle of filming Noah with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly. And she admits to being “obsessed” with Lena Dunham, the star and creator of HBO’s Girls.
I like the “Five Things” list which is five things she can do now that she is no longer filming the Harry Potter series and the five things she can’t do. One of the five things she can do is: “Find time to watch really bad TV with my family.” One of the five things she can’t do is “Yell Latin at people”.
Also, there are quite a few interesting photos of Watson in the article. She is actually wearing cat ears in one of them, which seems appropriate for the upcoming October holiday of Halloween.
