Emma Watson scans from Live. Daily Mail excerpts: ‘I wasn’t one of those girls who always dreamed of being an actress. I went to a normal school and then these film auditioners turned up when I was nine. Then I just fell into this whirlwind. I had lots of times when I thought:
‘Woah, woah, hang on, I’m not completely sure about this. I didn’t come from a background of films. I didn’t even really ever watch films. The fact is, my parents weren’t into that stuff, and neither was I.’
On dating: ‘I’ve had the same group of friends since junior school and it has saved me. People I’ve dated have been friends of friends. I’d be unlikely to go out with anyone famous. I just wouldn’t.‘ On acting: ‘There was always uncertainty about me having a future in acting at all.
It wasn’t like this was something I thought of as my future. After Hermione, I didn’t know whether there was anything else. You don’t know if you can exist outside of that or whether you even want that, because it was something you never really pursued in the first place.’ Credit: Emma-Watson.
