Emma Watson talked to the Daily Mail about being an adult and her terrible 18 birthday: ‘I find this whole thing about being 18 and everyone expecting me
to be this object..
I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’
embarrassing and confusing. If I do a photo shoot people desperately want to change me, dye my
hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the
choice of clothes.
I know everyone wants a picture of me in a
mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out
in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image.
I wouldn’t do that.
Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy
about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt have a
look at everything I’ve got’? My idea of sexy is that less is more. The
less you reveal the more people can wonder.It was pretty tough turning 18. I realized that overnight I’d
become fair game. I had a party in town and the pavements were just
knee-deep with photographers trying to get a shot of me looking drunk,
which wasn’t going to happen. I don’t have to drink to have a good time.
The sickest part was when one photographer lay down on the floor to
get a shot up my skirt. The night it was legal for them to do it, they
did it. I woke up the next day and felt completely violated by it all.
That’s not something I want in my life. I just kept thinking that if it
had happened a day earlier people would have sued their asses off.’
Emma on her rumored ‘good behavior’ clause in her contract for Harry Potter: ‘I
honestly think that’s a myth, but I actually wouldn’t ever need one.
It’s just not necessary. I’m not tempted by parties or drugs. I don’t
actually like being
drunk, particularly in public.
But I do understand
why people get sucked into a party lifestyle. I can see how it
happens so I’d never criticize someone who gets into all that. It can
get pretty tough. But you have choices in life. If I want to lead as
private and as
normal a life as possible I just can’t go there. So I
Emma Roberts new interview with MovieHole. What are the challenges for you in making the transition from adolescence to adulthood? ‘I just think it’s very thin ice you’re walking on, to make the
transition from child actor to adolescence. You know, so many
people just mess it up, and they do things that are so outrageous. And
it’s like, the whole point is, like, Anne Hathaway.
The fact that was
is Princess Diaries, like, you’d never think about that. Whereas, like,
Lindsay Lohan, you still know that she was in Freaky Friday and The
Parent Trap, and it’s hard to take her seriously. So that’s why I
really like, like, Anne Hathaway is a great example.
I think she’s
been nominated for so many awards this year. And the fact that she
starred in a Disney movie when she was in her teens, a lot of people
don’t even know that, I don’t think.
Do you feel lucky from the opportunities you have had? ‘I’m really
lucky. And I know I’m lucky. I’m just really, like, thankful for it
all the time, because I know that there’s millions and millions of
girls who want to be doing exactly what
I’m doing or want to be an
actress.What’s up with your new basketball movie The Winning Season? ‘It’s
like A League of Their Own, but for basketball. It’s very comedic, but
at the same time there’s some weight to it. And it’s just a girls
basketball team wanting to be taken seriously.
Everyone takes the boys seriously, and no one ever takes the girls’
team seriously. So they’re just trying to gain that respect. And the
coach, Sam Rockwell, is a misfit coach trying to gain respect.
You know, I’m one of them. So it’s great, to be able to do not
only so many movies, but so many different movies that are for
different audiences. So It’s really exciting.
How much basketball did you have to do? ‘Oh my God. We practiced
for, like, two, three weeks before the movie started. And – yeah. I got
along so well with all the girls in it. Like, they really picked a
great team, so we had fun messing around and playing and I think it’s
going to look really good.
Do you think you’re at the age now and the maturity that you
could go beyond playing the kid, and that you really want to play real
adolescents, like you do in, in Lymelife? Yeah. Definitely. No, also, I’m going to be 18 in three weeks,
so it’s kind of like, you know, it’s funny. Because when I did all
those, like, Hotel For Dogs, I was at the age where it would be
appropriate and now I think I’m
getting a little older.
But, you know,
I’ve really loved everything I’ve worked on, in different ways and I
don’t ever regret doing a project. But I’m looking now at more
independents. I’ve read a couple of scripts that I really, really have
an attachment to, and hope I can do some time this year or next year.
And do you hope that the independent world is something that
you’re going to continue to be drawn to, in terms of your acting? Yeah. I love it. I mean, I want to do everything. I really
like Natalie Portman, because I feel like she’s done a little bit of

Record breaking gold medal Olympian Michael Phelps is a pot smoker. A source revealed to News Of The World: ‘You could tell Michael had smoked before. He grabbed the bong and a lighter and knew exactly what to do. He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands..
..as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits. Michael ended up getting a little paranoid, though, because before too long he looked like he was nervous and ran out of the place.’
Michael released an apologetic statement: ‘I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.’
Do YOU think Michael should be stripped of his endorsement deals?
