From insidemovies.ew.com August 2013, "During the last few years of the Harry Potter franchise you seemed really unsure that you wanted to have an acting career. I’m kind of surprised that you decided you did. 'I know! I think my agent was pretty surprised, too. [Laughs] I was really unsure, but then I read the script for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and falling in love with that and then having such a great experience on that movie kind of sealed the deal for me. I stopped intellectualizing it, and it became much more instinctual. I just got the bug and got very driven all of a sudden, which I really wasn’t before. But I’m so happy. It’s all felt very new to me, really.'"
Wasn't driven before, eh?
From telegraph.co.uk July 2007, "It's the first time I've been anything but Hermione. Pauline is headstrong, so in that way she is quite like Hermione, but she is not academic. In fact, she actually reminds me of myself as a child, much more than Hermione does. Pauline is utterly obsessed with being an actress and I was just like that when I was younger. I dreamt of it. I practised speeches in front of mirrors. Whenever there was a part at school, I went for it. I was probably a bit of a show-off in the sense that any chance to get up and be seen, I did it. I was such a drama queen. I used to wail and moan and cry, and little things were blown up into being big things. I don't know how my parents stood it, really. I've grown up a bit. I've had to. I actually really want to be an actress, a proper actress who makes it her career. I'm was always expecting to be found out and I thought, 'If I'm no good, now is the time to find out.'"
ORLY NOW? She said the same thing at the DH2 premiere in July 2011.
From torontosun.com July 9th, 2011, She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Watching the new film I feel I've really learned something in these 10 years. For the first time I really felt like an actress and I have an idea of what I can be as an actress. And that is very exciting. I've worked with animals, special effects, I've done some serious stunts and I've worked with some of the best actors and actresses in the world. I couldn't have had better training. I feel I've graduated from the most difficult, hard-core film school of all time and I can't believe how lucky I've been. Now I'm ambitious to use what I've learned to do good work."
From entertainmentwise.com May 2013, “After Harry Potter I didn’t feel very confident in myself as an actor. It’s lucky that I’ve improved that now, but back then I needed someone to believe in me, and Stephen really did.’”
Seriously? This girl is a role model? Haha... please, she can't even tell the truth.
I could post so many quotes disproving her new quote. I did a post a few years ago called Emma clarifies her acting dreams where she contradicts herself like she is doing here. You can click here to read that. She's really full of shit.
From gq-magazine.co.uk May 2013, "How have your ambitions changed since you became successful? 'I think when I was younger I wasn't really sure if I wanted to act, so I played around with a few different ideas. I wasn't sure whether I might want to write or whether I might want to do something in fashion. I wasn't really focused in the same way that Dan was from the get go. His parents [worked in the industry], he went to the theatre, he watched films, he was absolutely set from the beginning: 'I'm going to be an actor.' We had maybe four tapes in the whole of our house. My father doesn't watch films, and I'd been taken to the theatre maybe twice on a school trip. I'd always enjoyed acting in school plays, but that just wasn't an ambition that I really thought about. I guess how I've changed is that coming out of Potter I've become more focused. I've zoned in on what I actually want to do, which is act."
There she is lying again (it's so fucking funny because she's blatantly lying when you read the Ballet Shoes quote above) and notice how she talks about her parent not being too interested in movies or acting and then read what she says below. Keep in mind I am really limiting quotes to save you some reading. I could add so many more to seal the deal. In fact for everything in this post I could do that.
Now about her parents
From insidemovies.ew.com August 2013, "Well, you hadn’t had a chance to make an adult decision about being an actor and suddenly other people were making it for you. 'That’s exactly what it was. I wanted to make a conscious adult decision that this was what I wanted to pursue, because that decision was made for me as a nine-year-old. I had no idea what I wanted. I had no idea who I was really. So I wanted to step away and make sure this is what I wanted to pour my life and my energy and my blood, sweat, and tears into.'"
Oh you had no choice, huh?
From glamourvanity.com Emma told The Times in June 2009, “You wouldn’t believe how much I was compelled to play Hermione. I knew I was right to play her, even when my parents were trying to convince me not to. I made it my life for three or four months, just getting through those auditions,” From celebitchy.com August 2012, "Parental advice: "Yeah, I think I’ve been lucky in that neither of my parents got swept up in it, it wasn’t something they wanted for me, it wasn’t something that they were overawed by. They gave me the best advice they could, and I think they gave me very good advice." From iheartwatson.net Sunday magazine 2009, "I loved the books—I was a massive fan. I just felt like that part belonged to me. I know that sounds crazy, but from that first audition, I always knew." From iheartwatson.net Interview Magazine: April 2009, “Of course, all this terrified my parents—there were literally thousands and thousands of girls going out for the audition, and my parents were anxious about what I would do if I didn’t get it. They were trying to make me stay realistic—but I wasn’t having any of it. I was going to get that part. This is a sweet thing: My dad did a roast on a Sunday, and he gave me the wishbone, and I obviously made the wish that I would get this role. I still have that wishbone upstairs in my jewelry box.” From iheartwatson.net CBBC Newsround Interview: November 2001, "David Heyman actually invited [Rupert Grint] and me to come in. We sat down in his office – very casual – and he said, ‘You’ve got the part.’ I was so shocked and I just stood there and said, ‘Pinch me!'" From celebitchy.com November 2010, "On becoming a child actor: “I started working on the audition at 9 in the morning and didn’t stop until 5 in the evening,” she recalled. “The tape was just me doing the same thing hundreds of times over, until I got it exactly right. I was just amazed at my stamina. The grown-ups said, ‘We had to stop you; you wanted to keep going.’ I’ve always been like that; I give 100 percent. I can’t do it any other way.” Watson’s parents, who divorced when she was very young, are both lawyers—her father is a telecommunications attorney, and her mother is a solicitor—but their little girl made it clear they were not to stand in her way. “I would never have forgiven my parents if they had made me turn down that opportunity,” she said. “I just loved performing. It just made me feel alive. It’s scary, but that’s part of it. I think it’s important to have that extra adrenaline. It gives you that extra zing.”
Seems to me her parents let her make up her own mind. This is Emma plying the victim card. This is woe is me Watson. This is her thing with all the dramatics and over exaggerations. She made the choice at age 9 when she went out of the part of Hermione. So in her newest quote where she says she had no choice what is she implying and who is she talking about? Who forced her to act? It certainly was not her parents. Her parents seemed to let her make her own decisions at a young age, and if you remember Emma said her father never treated her like a child.
Now a mean professor said she should not act.
From insidemovies.ew.com August 2013, "How affected were you by all the hand-wringing in the press about whether you and Daniel Radcliffe could have post-Potter careers? 'For a while I kind of bought into the hype of, ‘Will they ever be able to play anything else?’ It gave me a sense of paralysis and stage fright for a while. And then a professor told me that they didn’t think I should act, either. So I was really grappling with it and wasn’t feeling good about it. And then, I don’t know … it got so bad and people had put me in a box so much that it started pissing me off. I suddenly wanted to prove them wrong. It gave me fuel, in a way. I’m not sure why that shift happened.'"
What in the hell is she talking about? I've been doing this blog on and off since February 2011 and not once have I ever came across anyone putting her in a this "box." In fact the opposite has been true. Her name has came up for so many films that she's never done btw and they journalists write about her like she's this A list actress with much acclaim and awards. Her fans keep on saying she'll win an Oscar one day, lol. It's her that has this Hermione hook up and not anyone else. Her fans are one thing but non-Potter fans don't have this she'll only be Hermione to me attitude. Non-Potter fans knows she's a horrible actress to begin with so Hermione is not even part of the equation for them. And the professor, really? That's bullshit. We never heard that one before, and this is a girl that is so repetitive in her interviews. Besides she can make up any story she wants and not have to prove it because she's famous and the other person is not.
She was happy and content at Brown and then she left abruptly. She said so many positive things but she ran away after these quotes. Her are a few.
From aceshowbiz.comNovember 5th 2010 She tells U.S. magazine Parade, "I get some amazing offers to act, and sometimes it's hard to say, 'No, I'm going to stay here and do my homework.' People are like, 'What do you mean she's not available?' This college experience is really important to me, and I won't give it up. From glamourvanity.com November 2010, "One morning I was walking down the corridor from the bathroom in just a towel and I thought I must be mad, anyone could take a picture up my towel and put it on Twitter. But no-one did,” Emma gushed." From thehollywoodgossip.com November 2010 She told Marie Claire magazine, “Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me. They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I’m part of it."
Keep in mind that first quote was at the same time she left Brown for a few weeks to film her small part in MWWM so that was a lie. She never did show up for the January 2011 term. She tweeted a week prior about ready to go back but then deleted it. Don't forget about that. She just spins and lies and manipulates the readers and her fans because she knows the interviewer and the media will not do any fact checking, and her fan base are just clueless and probably could careless because it would fuck with their fan fiction and fantasies. She can make anything up and it will go under the radar until people like me say, "wait a moment" and then present prior things she had said and done.
BTW about this school thing.
From movies.ndtv.com July 2013, "As well as continuing her acting career, Watson is determined to finish her degree at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where she is studying English Literature. "I feel incredibly fortunate that I get to juggle so much, because I think there's been times in my life I wondered whether I would be able to get my degree as well as keep everything else going. There are times where it's really hard and I have to work hard at it, but hopefully I get to graduate next year and that will be really satisfying," she said.
Her take has always been she never had time to do other movies because she's always studying or "busy" as she likes to put it but now it's not even a problem and she amazed how she can juggle it all? How don't know you when you'll graduate? What? Does she attend a clown college? She is really full of it and she gets away it. Hopefully she'll graduate she says? Hold on a second?!
From snitchseeker.com September 2012, "Amazing. So you’re going back to school? I have one semester left, which I’ll go back in January to do, probably at Brown. Brown is great because they offer independent study programs, and there are lots of different options, which is one of the reasons I chose it."
And she "supposedly" did that one semester in a independent study course from her NYC apartment.
From dailyrecord.co.uk Cannes May 2013,"While other kids would be, well, kids in a sweet shop at such fame and fortune at an early age, Emma has always, like her character Hermione in Harry Potter, been well-grounded. Rather than being happy with an acting career, she went to Brown University in Rhode Island, US. Smiling, she said: “I just finished my semester. I am on holiday now."
This entire display of spin is Emma playing the victim card, woe is me, being over dramatic and over exaggerating as usual. Then she wraps it up in a big ball of lies and contradictions. She's always playing angles by trying to present herself as a greater worth than she is in Hollywood with a touch of first class problems. Oh boohoo! Her post Potter career is not going as planned I suppose and now she is trying to make it seem like she was never passionate about acting until recently. It's not like she's portraying these deep roles or getting lead parts in movies. There has been nothing but speculation of parts that never materialize, and I think that's done on purpose by her people to keep her in the news when it's slow. Emma is nothing but a younger Jennifer Aniston that is lauded for her quotes, hair and looks which projects her to be this A list actress, but in reality she is an A list celebrity with a B list acting credentials that needs fashion and cosmetic brands to keep her working. Ironically Emma's a brand herself.
You've read her quotes on how she said she made Perks happen and how all big Whigs in Hollywood come to see her for roles. She must be the greatest supporting and cameo actor of all time. Since I was not born yesterday or since I am not one of her stans, she says these things to continue the illusion that she is really high up on the list for roles, and for her image that has always been this anti-celebrity not attracted to fame or money even though she always in the press saying how she's not into those things as she continues to do it. Image and perception is everything when your goal is to appeal to an audience which nowadays is as good as having talent. She can't do that from some dorm room. And the reason she left Brown, and then left Worcester was to stay relevant by taking supporting roles she does not want but if she does not take them she might be forgotten. She's being used for her fan base, and at the same time she trying to shed that Potter goody two shoes image she hates, but as always Emma is deceptively spinning it as, "I 'like'so want to act now."
The only thing she told the truth on was her parents not being into Hollywood. Everything else is lying and even playing her typical “woe is me Watson” routine by implying she had no choice to be an actress. In fact she went to RADA for a bit before Potter finished so if she was not sure she would have never gone or at age 6 she would have never trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts. Her post Potter career is horrible so she’s making excuses.
