Emma Watson 'Staying Away' from Blockbuster Franchises

Emma Watson 'Staying Away' from Blockbuster Franchises

Emma Watson walks into JFK Airport to catch a flight on Friday (June 15) in New York City.

The 22-year-old English actress recently was asked by a fan what types of movie roles she’s drawn to.

“I am definitely staying away from blockbuster franchises for a while! In terms of the type of parts I am drawn to, I need to be interested in the role, and who I would be working with,” Emma wrote on her official website.

“The director’s vision is key,” she added. “Sometimes what’s on the page isn’t always representative of what a piece can ultimately become and a great director can take a good script to another level and make it incredible.”

    Now that the Harry Potter checks have stopped coming in, she better takes what is offered to her, because soon the offers will dry up.

    Let’s be honest here; she has little acting talent. These days she’s known for her many boyfriends, and for being a college dropout.

    She looks beautiful, I like her outfit!

    Why hatin on her/compare her to KStew? She acts better than Kristen, TBH. No acting talent? Go see all the HP films and see how versatile she was and how able she was to adapt to various kinds of situations.

    Wow @ some of these comments. First of all, what does Kstew have to do with this? Where in anything Emma said above did she snidely mention Kstew? Delusional stan, sit down and stop causing drama. In addition, she’s doing pretty well for herself at the moment. She has a contract with Lancome, filmed two movies already, made a cameo in a comedy, she’s the upcoming lead in “Beauty and the Beast” as well as “Your Voice in My Head”. And she might have a supporting role in “Noah” if the rumors are true. Yeah, poor her, she’s not getting any jobs at the moment. Please.

    I love her, she’s making the right moves, it is hard to step away from a role like Hermione, it becomes so defining in many eyes. Good thing she was a kid, so it’ll be easier and she’s going to make it I think. I just wish she, and everyone else, stopped using that to another level phrase. I am cringing at it these days. There are alternatives people.

    None of her films post-Potter are released yet. The films she is rumoured for hasn’t even filmed yet. It may get cancelled, who knows. No one can say she is anything until her first movie away from the Potter franchise is released. Her acting critiqued, opening weekend box office calculated. At this stage, she is a worser actress than Kstew. Kstew has done many films in between and post-twilight. Snow White did well at the box office and she has the starring role. On the Road has favorable reviews for Kstew and she was nude a couple of times throughout the film. Until Emma can open a blockbuster movie as the lead, and act in a role that’s not teen-centric, her acting is still considered safe and thus not limited, not a box office draw.

    kingkayski’s spelling is fine. Delusional is the only word she spelt wrong and with instant spell check, it is more due to speed than making an actual mistake.
    You should pick on someone else and stop being racist, amanda. Emma fans show their true colors.

    hap Says:

    @May: LMAO “worser.” You’ve just summed up your intelligence in that one misspelling. It’s funny how you mention Kristen’s nude scenes like it helps your argument. Kstew’s name will most likely be met with “the blank-faced girl from Twilight” whereas Emma will be known as “Hermione Granger.” I doubt Emma cares that much about the huge franchise checks, girl’s going to be a Brown graduate.

    look at her imdb page she has plenty of starring roles, she will have a long career after Potter.

    @May: worser? your grammar basically shows how seriously we can take your comment. and a lot of the movies like “the perks of being a wallflower” are in post-production and have a release date so they’re not going to just “cancel”them, genius. please let’s not talk about kristen stewart. when has she ever “open a blockbuster movie as the lead”? what you and all other twi-hards fail to see is that if you look at all of the ads (both billboards and commercials) for snow white and the huntsmen they rely on charlize theron and chris hemsworth as leads.,r:0,s:0,i:73 if you look at the pic you don’t even see “kstew” at first glance because they know she can’t carry a movie as big as this. get over it and don’t take out your problems on an actress that has nothing to do with kristen stewart

    Why are some Emma Watson fans obsessed with Kristen Stewart? Its so weird…Talk about Emma if you like her but leave Kristen out of it!!! I am so sick of all the stupid comparisons.

    @keke Says:

    Actually Kristen Stewart was the main box office draw for SWATH. Charlize Theron has never been a big box office draw and Chris Hemsworth did well as Thor but people would have seen it no matter who played Thor! Top analysts have actually written articles on this. Kristen proved she can open a big movie and thats a fact. I’m sure Emma will prove she can do the same when the time comes. I like both these young actresses and think they get far too much undue criticism..often from fans!

    7 Movies? Please help me, because I can’t count 7 Movies and I’m talking about Movies which are confirmed and have a Filming Schedule ( I don’t count End of the World though, she is just playing herself as a Cameo)

    Anyway I like her Outfit, I just wish she would stop whining :/ I mean she wanted this Life, didn’t she?

    God, leave the Hate please, it’s useless and will just keep going on with the stupid Fanwar. Just don’t care about her, if you don’t like her.
    But the Fans can leave the “Emma is the Godness” Behavior as well. I like Emma as well, but I won’t say she will have the biggest Career ever, because noone knows if she will, same goes for Kristen, Jennifer and whoever. That is not just a Opinion, it’s a Fact. You all just predict a Future of what is now, you don’t know how it will be in 1 or 4 or 5 Years. Why don’t you wait a few Years and see? Then you can still say “this Person will be this and will have that” and just enjoy the Movies. A Career is not a Competition. This is more a Opinion War than anything else here -__-

    Emma’s fans are racist teen girls. Stay in your momma’s basement dear because the world consists of more than English speaking countries…
    SWATH is Kristen Stewart’s star vehicle. No matter what the posters look like. Kristen is top billing, it is her movie.
    Nude scenes or not, she put her self into Mary Lou, didn’t short change the role. A good actress can handle nude scenes, something I think Emma will never be able to do. As for her choice in doing small roles, that also shows her lack of commitment and why she is a poorer actress to Kstew. Until she proves otherwise, she is still a one-hit wonder at best (the Harry Potter movies being her one hit).

    sam Says:

    @Mary: “A good actress can handle nude scenes”? Riiiight. So an actress should only be taken seriously if she does a nude scene then?! Next you’ll be saying Kristen will be nominated for an oscar. I’m sorry but Kristen Stewart is like the only actress who when I read reviews for her movies countless critics are saying she is a bad actress. If critics are calling your acting bad then its time for you to quit.

    @sam Says:

    LOL. You quit too easily. Critics make their living in finding faults about other people’s work. Why should they keep their job and she quit? Lol, you are truly jealous of kstew’s fame and success. Yes, a good actress should be able to do nude scenes. It shows dedication and commitment to your craft. Like I said, Emma will never act in a nude scene. Comedies don’t win Oscars. I’m not saying Kstew will win an Oscar for On the Road, but Oscars aren’t just awarded for one role, it is an accumulation of good roles that help you to gain respect in the industry. On the road is one of many roles that will result in a best actress Oscar win in the future. Emma has a long ways to go, sorry.

    god, can people stop talking about kstew? this is emma post, and she’s looking gorgeous as always. I wish both of them the best, and whats up with this fanwar anyway? cause the last time I know, I saw them talking and being nice to each other at mma

    Maria Says:

    @sam: Sorry, but I like Kristen as well and I read good Reviews,mixed, but most good Reviews. Same goes for Emma. And what is with your Hate for godness Sake. Not Kristen should quit something, you should.
