Emma Watson stopped by “Good Morning America” on Friday for an interview about the new “Beauty and the Beast” live-action remake. Emma was spotted heading into the show’s studios amidst New York’s bad weather. But the actress/activist had a big, warm smile–even if it looked a little forced.
Emma’s interview seemed to lack her usual heart. She was excited to see a group of tiny little Belles dressed as her character from the movie. A few were even tearing up while Emma was being interviewed. Even that wasn’t enough to make the actress sound passionate as she explained why she put her own spin on the classic Disney character.
“She is a little different,” Emma said of her take on Belle. “I think that we had a little bit more space and room to tell a bit more of Belle’s story in this one. I hope she’s a slightly more modern version. She was updated a little bit. But she was pretty progressive in her DNA really. She was a bit of a rebellious ‘Disney princess,'”
