Emma Watson Reveals a Hidden Message in 'Beauty & the Beast'

Emma Watson is bringing Beauty and the Beast to the Big Apple!

The 26-year-old actress stepped out in a gorgeous black gown at the premiere on Monday night (March 13) in New York City.

She was joined by Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Josh Groban, Audra McDonald, Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGregor.

Emma recently opened up about how her character Belle’s love of books holds an important hidden meaning.

“[Books are] so powerful and they have the ability to change your life and your outlook, and this story really speaks to that, the sacred nature of books and their ability to transport you and empower you,” she told Mashable.

Emma added, “We still live in a world where there are probably over 80 million girls who won’t get to go to school just because of their gender.”

FYI: Emma is wearing Christopher Kane and an Eva Fehren earcuff. Audra is carrying a Judith Leiber x Disney Beauty and the Beast collection clutch.

Emma Watson Explains Why She Didn't Star in 'La La Land'

It’s no secret that Emma Watson was in the running to play the female lead in the Oscar-winning film La La Land and now she’s opening up about why she couldn’t take the role, which went to Emma Stone.

The 26-year-old actress was already committed to star in Beauty and the Beast and was not able to fit La La Land into her schedule with all the training she had to do to play Belle.

“It’s one of these frustrating things where sort of names get attached to projects very early on as a way to kind of build anticipation or excitement for something that’s coming before anything is really actually agreed or set in stone,” Emma told EW during a SiriusXM Town Hall.

“I knew I had horse training, I knew I had dancing, I knew I had three months of singing ahead of me, and I knew I had to be in London to really do that,” Emma added. “And this wasn’t a movie I could just kind of parachute into. I knew I had to do the work, and I had to be where I had to be. So scheduling conflict-wise, it just didn’t work out.”

Emma Watson had the coolest idea on International Women’s Day!

Earlier this week, the 26-year-old Beauty and the Beast actress left some of her favorite books around the streets of New York City.

Emma partnered with Book Fairies and placed the books – with her handwritten notes inside them – at monuments that celebrate women’s accomplishments.

“Today I’m a red-striking ninja book-fairy out to spread some wise women’s words,” Emma shared on Instagram along with the photo below. “Happy International Women’s Day! @bookfairiesworldwide #IWDOurSharedShelf #IWD #ADayWithoutAWoman.”

Some spots she visited were the Harriet Tubman Memorial, the Joan of Arc Memorial, the Gertrude Stein statue, and the Eleanor Roosevelt Monument.

Emma Watson Responds to Beyonce Fans Who Called Her a Hypocrite Over Feminism Quotes

Emma Watson has responded to people who criticized her for posing topless in Vanity Fair despite once saying that Beyonce‘s Lemonade visual album “felt very male.”

The 26-year-old actress has already defended the photo and said that “feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with,” but some Beyonce fans think that she did just that to the entertainer with her comments in 2014.

“This is the part of my 2014 interview with Tavi where we talked about Beyoncé. My words are in bold,” Emma wrote on Twitter along with an excerpt from the interview.

The full quotes from the article reveal that Emma really did think that Lemonade had some great feminist qualities.

Here's How the 'Beauty & The Beast' Movie Sends a Nod to Broadway Version

There are only a matter of days until the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast hits theaters and we have details on how the new movie sends a nod to the Broadway version of the musical.

There are several new songs that were written for the 2017 version of the film, but none of the original songs written for the Broadway show were used in the new movie.

One of the most memorable moments of the stage version is the song “A Change in Me,” which was added to the Broadway show four years after it opened to give Toni Braxton a special moment when she joined the cast. The song stayed in the show for the next nine years until it closed in 2007.

“A Change in Me” is a song that Belle sang after The Beast let her leave the castle and she reunited with her father Maurice. She opened up to him about how she changed as a person while living at the castle and developing feelings for The Beast.

Emma Watson Admits Ruining Takes During 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' Filming!

Emma Watson is opening up about those adorable Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone outtakes that show her inadvertently mouthing her co-stars – Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint – lines during filming.

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday (March 6) in Los Angeles, the 26-year-old admitted that the whole experience was “quite traumatic” for her.

“You laugh, this is actually quite traumatic for me because I created issues because of this,” Emma revealed to Jimmy. “Yes, I would ruin takes. [Director] Chris [Columbus] would be like, ‘Cut. Emma, you’re doing it again. You’re mouthing Dan’s lines,’ and I’d be like, ‘Ooo, I’m so sorry, so sorry. Oh, I feel so bad.’ But I couldn’t help myself.”

“I was such a loser, I really loved those books, I really wanted to do my job well, and I kind of overdid it,” Emma joked.

Emma also talked about being a book ninja and promoted Beauty and the Beast.
