Emma Watson Explains Why She Won't Take Photos with Fans Anymore

Emma Watson dons a chic look on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s new issue, on newsstands March 7.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Beauty and the Beast star had to share with the mag:

On not taking photos with fans anymore: “For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data…I’ll say, ‘I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can’t do a picture.’ I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact. When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone’s freakin’ week? Children I don’t say no to, for example.”

On not talking about her boyfriend in interviews: “I want to be consistent: I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can’t have it both ways…. I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.”

On her version of Belle today: “I was like, ‘The first shot of the movie cannot be Belle walking out of this quiet little town carrying a basket with a white napkin in it,’ ” she says. “ ‘We need to rev things up!’ The original sketches had her in her ballet shoes…which are lovely—don’t get me wrong—but she’s not going to be able to do anything terribly useful in ballet shoes in the middle of a French provincial village.”

Emma Watson Got Super Emotional Watching 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'

Emma Watson reacted to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in a way she didn’t expect!

The 26-year-old actress says she got super emotional seeing Noma Dumezweni portray Hermione in the hugely successful play.

“It was so strange. It was so emotional seeing Noma’s performance in a way that I had not anticipated at all. I went to the play…and she walked in the room and I just spontaneously burst into tears,” she explained to EW.

Emma added, “I had played that character so intensely up until that point, that to know that Hermione was going to be okay — I know it sounds crazy — but to know that everything turned out all right and everything in the world was okay, that there was someone else carrying her on and carrying her forward…it was just such a relief.”

Emma Watson Tells 'Elle UK' How Critics Have Toughened Her Up

Emma Watson is opening up about how she has dealt with critics for the March 2017 issue of Elle UK, on sale now.

Here is what the 26-year-old Beauty and the Beast actress had to share with the mag:

On taking a year off from acting to concentrate on activism: “It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything…I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.”

On dealing with her critics: “It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.”

Emma Watson Sings 'Belle' with the Townspeople in 'Beauty & The Beast' First Look Clip!

The first look at Emma Watson singing her character’s first song, “Belle,” from the upcoming movie Beauty and the Beast has been released!

The clip opens with the townspeople singing the famous, “Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour, bonjour, bonjour!”

Emma then goes into Belle’s line, “There goes the baker with his tray like always, the same old bread and rolls to sell. Ev’ry morning just the same, since the morning that we came, to this poor provincial town.”

Belle then shares a moment with the baker and you might notice that some of the dialogue between the two characters has been changed from the animated film. In the original film she says the book she just finished is about “a beanstalk and an ogre,” but in the live-action remake she says, “it’s about two lovers in fair Verona,” in reference to Romeo and Juliet.

Make sure to watch the clip of Emma singing “Belle (Reprise)” as well!
