Sweetie Hollywood actress Emma Watson covers Glamour UK, October 2012 issue. The 22-year-old star looks flirtatiously beautiful in the photos, showing off her “kitten” side and amazing style sense. Inside the magazine, the actress opens up and dishes on such issues, as her personal life, her hair, dating rules, her career and the new film, ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. Read on to learn more!
Talking about ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’, Emma says: “Making this movie was so pivotal for me because I realized I do really want to be an actress, which wasn’t something I fully knew, since Harry Potter was such a singular experience. Obviously I’m nervous to see what other people think, but it kind of doesn’t matter to me. It’s so cheesy to say this, but it’s the journey, not the end goal, that’s important. “
As for her obsession with Lena Dunham, Emma confesses that, “I am literally obsessed with [Girls creator and star] Lena Dunham. She’s, like, my favorite person in the world. I follow her on Twitter; I read her every day. And, yes, Girls is an example of something so refreshing because it feels real.”
Apparently, Emma want to keep her University life out of spotlight. “I just — I don’t know. I just feel like if I start opening the door to talking about my university experience, then people just kind of…own everything,” she says. “There was a lot of stuff a couple of years ago saying that I was bullied at Brown and awful things like that, none of which were true. But it’s my personal experience and it’s my personal life…and I would just go crazy if I didn’t have a reality, if I didn’t have a life outside of the roles I play. The entertainment industry is pretty nuts, and having had that experience outside of it and going to university has really made a big difference. It’s important to me to feel like I have my own life.”
As for her personal life and being seen kissing someone at Coachella, Emma says that, “I know! My friend got me tickets for my birthday, and what am I going to say? No, I’m not going to go, because I don’t want to be photographed? But it was a huge crowd, and I thought there was no way anyone could get pictures of me, but somehow they found me. It’s difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends.”
On her amazing style and best fashion moments, Emma says, “That’s so nice! In my real life I can be a bit scruffy, but I love dressing up for the red carpet. I really try to do my research and look into new people who are coming onto the scene. It’s creative, and I’m really into art, and it’s fun.”
When it comes to working with a stylist, Emma admits that, “Yeah, I have to at this point. When I was younger, I used to do it all myself, but I’ve had to get help because it’s gotten to a stage where I can’t show up in my Converses or whatever I bought from High Street. And just practically, these gowns are ridiculous. You’re being photographed from every angle, so not only do you have to consider how the thing looks, but whether you’re going to be able to sit in it and whether people are going to be able to see up your skirt.”
Emma also talked about her cute pixie cut, saying that now she has to grow her hair for the new role. “I have to for roles. But if I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever. Of course, men like long hair. There’s no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, ‘Why did you do that? That’s such an error.’ And I was like, ‘Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!’ I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair — I felt really good in my own skin,” she says.
