Tilda Swinton Explains Why She Doesn't Like 'Harry Potter'

Tilda Swinton is not a fan of the Harry Potter series and she’s explaining the reason she dislikes the films.

The Oscar-winning actress attended a boarding school as a child and did not have a good experience there, so she isn’t going to an endorse an artistic piece that highlights kids living away from home.

“I think they are a very cruel setting in which to grow up and I don’t feel children benefit from that type of education,” Tilda told The Scots magazine (via Vulture). “Children need their parents. That’s why I dislike films like Harry Potter, which tend to romanticize such places.”

DO YOU AGREE with Tilda Swinton’s views on Harry Potter?

    After 5 years I decided to resign from my last job and that decision was a life changer for me… I started freelancing over internet, for a company I found online, for several hours every day, and I earn much more than i did on my previous job… My last month pay-check was for 9 thousand bucks… Superb thing about this job is that i have more free time for my kids…

    Lets see if JK Rowling responds. Since she likes to respond to everything, this would be one of those times where a response is warranted.
