Emma Watson's photoshoot for Harper's Bazaar UK talking about university and LA scaring her



She tells the August issue of the magazine: 'Leaving Brown had nothing to do with bullying, as the media have been suggesting recently.

'I have never been bullied in my life. Like a lot of other students at Brown, I might spend my third year abroad.'

Although Watson is still musing over where to complete her studies, it appears her native England is unlikely to be an option.

When asked why she didn't originally chose an English university, Watson explained: 'I felt suddenly very claustrophobic...I thought, "I can’t stay here, I won’t be able to concentrate, I won’t be left alone."'

Since enrolling at university, Watson has been taking acting classes and admitted she was struggling to unleash her inner bad girl.

She said: 'My acting tutor said the hardest thing for me was to get angry. I almost broke down in tears when they tried to get me to be angry. I said, "I can’t do it, I just can’t do it."

'I keep all of that really bottled up somewhere and I feel unleashing it would be the scariest thing – and to let myself be powerful, sexy, all those things, it’s scary for me. [Even playing the bad girl in this shoot] felt a bit uncomfortable and awkward, it didn’t come naturally at all.'

While Watson is hoping to continue her acting career, she admits she finds Hollywood petrifying.

She admitted: 'LA scares the c**p out of me.

'I feel if I have to work out four hours a day, and count the calories of everything I put in my mouth, and have Botox at 22, and obsess about how I look the whole time, I will go mad, I will absolutely lose it.'

School in LA?lmao Emma wouldn't even think on living near LA.The Place scares her,so why should she want to live there,goes to School there or work for a Career there?I doubt someone of the Trio would ever do something for the Reason to have a Hollywood Career lol

I won't quote you, but I will bet you! How about 100 euros that she doesn't ever go to school in LA.

Echee - you were the one who said she never would return to Uni in the first place.

Wrong again.

I'd imagine she'll only go to LA to work like Keira Knightley and Kate Winslet and Rachel Weiz etc do. She might buy someone but she won't live there.
Only notice that the quote was why she didn't chose an English university Initally, she may still go to one.
She might go to Paris, there are some very famous unis there.

I might buy a house there, not buy someone lol!

Brown has no programs in LA. Do your homework.

She'll go to Cambridge or Italy where her apartment is.

Yeah her quotes about uni in England are in the past tense, talking about why she didn't choose an English college in the first place, her opinion might be different now. She refers to how she felt, maybe not how she feels now. Cambridge is still a big option I think.

I don't see her working like Keira Nightly or ever do such big Movies like her.I could really think that Emma want's to do UK Movies again,since she said once,she loves Movies there and acting and I'm almost sure she will return full to UK after Uni.

It's like Daniel,who is working in NY now.He said he will switch between NY and UK always.Seems he can't live full there,because UK is his Home.Emma wouldn't do this switching that often.It seems Emma is more Home-bonding than Daniel

While she could go to Oxford, Cambridge, Kings or Lse in England, I'm backing the Sorbonne in Paris. She was born there, it's a quick flight to England, she seemed to really enjoy her time there with lancome, it'd be a big and different experience for her, it's an exciting city and the Sorbonne is really presitigious.

Keira is predominantly based in London. She sometimes splits her time between London and New York, she's only ever in LA when she's working. I see Emma doing the same. Emma said in an interview she'd like London as her base but to divide her time between it and New York. Keira does a mix of stage, low budget and big budget movies. I'd like Emma to mix it up like that as well. I'm not saying I want her to have keiras career, I just think she might mix it up a bit like she does while spending most of her time in London. Kate winslet does the same.

Yeah, actually the more I think about it, the more I think you're onto something with the Sorbonne!

Echee said...

anytime emma says she will not do something or dont like something she ends up doing it. Thats all Im saying. LA - Johnny - college -Weinstein. We'll have to wait and see.

Well she hasn't moved to LA, she may or may not be dating Johnny, she is still in college she's just taken a break... These things happen in life, I've changed my mind about tones of things, I'd cringe if a lot of stuff I've said got repeated back to me, I'm open minded and can change my opinions and decisions, that's part of life. I'd rather be like that than narrow minded and totally fixed in my beliefs. Dating someone I wouldn't normally go for or having breaks from things has helped me with life, and at the end of the day they are major changes in beliefs or personality, people are allowed change their minds.

I ment they aren't major changes.

I always said I wanted to be an engineer, that's all I wanted to be, I'd do my degree and go and then go traveling, I didn't see the point in a masters, I'd then come back near home and get a job and I didn't want a serious relationship until my late 20s and when I did he'd have to have a stable job.
Then life actually happened. I studied law, did a masters, never went travelling, live abroad in an apartment that I share with my boyfriend who works freelance.
I don't really care if people stick to what their plans, I judge them overall as people, that's what matters. There's a saying where I come from 'make your plans and hear god laugh' and it's very accurate, I've changed my mind on tones of things, I'm very happy that I did, I'd be an awful engineer!!!

Ah, ça fait bizarre de la voir avec cette coupe de cheveux sur la 3ème photo. C'est bien qu'ils essayent de lui donner un style différent dans ce genre de photoshoot, par contre je trouve que ce n'est pas vraiment le style qui lui va le mieux. Et ça ne fait pas vraiment "bad girl" non plus.
J'ai hâte de voir la cover en bonne qualité.

J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance du shoot. Le décor est très jolie. Par contre pour la coupe de cheveux sur la 3ème photo ne lui va pas trop selon moi. Et les chaussures de la 4ème photo me font un peu peur étant donné que je me demande comment on peut marché avec des talons si fins. ^^

Yeah, Emma has some emotions you need for acting that doesn't seem natural in her personality. I hope she'll learn to control them to unleash the bad girl in her. You need that for sexy roles :P. She don't need to go to LA to continue her acting career. She can continue it in the UK, but i'm sur she'll find her way trhough the scary LA to stay herself ( Jay Baruchel did)
I like the photoshoot but yeah, I mean, she could have done a little more of the bad girl thing on the 3 and 4 pictures :P But anyway, everybody has a struggle with some emotions. mine is, like emma, be a bad girl. Some people never look sad, etc. some people can't even look like a good person lool :P

Well,let's remember that both of them-journalist and Emma-could lie,so still,we can only speculate about all of what she said,or what "Bazaar" have posted.Concerning photos-2nd & 3rd are pretty much...controversial,but I understand that she's growing, and however much Emma may wouldn't want to do "such" photos,someday she'll know that she'll have to,at least to attract publicity,or smth like that.I both like and hate them.

serge I am convinced you say these things to try to convice yourself. Not all celebrities lie. Journalists report what the celebrities say. Celebrities can pre-pick their questions as well.
