Could Emma Watson play Elizabeth Taylor in her biopic


Emma Watson is our dark horse for the coveted part. Just think, she can identify with Taylor's past as a child actress, and her unexpected pixie cut last year proved she is up for drastically changing her look. Also, a biopic seems like a good career move for Emma, in addition to her role in the upcoming dark comedy Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Would you rather Camilla Belle? Kristin Davis? Angelina Jolie? Lindsay Lohan?

Basically yes, but not at this point of her career. Emma has improved a lot but i dont think she could handle this role in the next years. its too huge for most actresses imho.

Yeah, it's too early on Emma's career to take on a role like this. This is a legend, and as HP fans, we know she has gotten better, she's a damn good actress, but she has yet to prove herself to non-HP fans. What she's doing now is great. A little part in My Week with Marilyn and now Perks.

She's smart not to take on a huge leading role now. We've seen RPattz and KSpew do that while doing Twilight, and you all have seen how that went...

Not right now. If she complains about fame with Harry Potter imagine if she plays a role like this. Beside that, she is a good actress, but not that good.

None of the actresses apart from Angelina Jolie, maybe.

What does fame have to do with it? She's an actress. I think Emma could do it with enough preperation.

She is an actress but sometimes she complains too much. I don't think she is prepared for a role like this. Maybe in a few years.

LOL on this post. Talk about overrated to teh max regarding her acting skills. Please will someone tell me what success on screen does she have other than playing hermione? A role she said came naturual because "she's so much" like Hermione but now as she described in Remix it "feels good" that she can be "herself again."

nope,I Jolie would be great,she is one of the best and remember Emma want's support and little Role and Theatre Expierience ,so it could be that she will concentrate on this soon or just on Fashion,who knows

Emma even want's long Hair again,so this Article doesn't really make Sense

anon thats what she says she wants but it doesn't mean thats what she actuyally wants. I dont think she gets much respect within the industry in terms of acting. Id that were the case she'd get more parts. She's a pretty face. That's all. She's proven nothing otehr than being hermione and being photogenic. Let me now when she starts winning awards for her craft.

I think in another five or six years she could be ready for this part...
I must admit though she didn't really impress me as Hermione. There was a lot of exaggeration in her performance and as E-Chee Wah-Wah pointed out she's said that she's very much like the character.She has potential though.Give her a couple years and she might be able to pull it off.
As for the rumors about her possibly playing either Natalie Wood or Audrey Hepburn I must say bloody hell no!
