• Places that she loves in Paris: Café de Flore, the bookstore Shakespeare and Company.
• She often comes to Paris where she still has family and friends in Paris. She lived in the Marais, at Maisons-Laffitte until 5. Everybody is French in her mom's side so she spoke English and French as a child but forgot all her French.
• She loves to shop at Isabel Marant, A.P.C., Agnès B, Chloé when in Paris and also loves Ladurée's macarons.
• In England she lives on the North of London alone, waiting for a friend to come living with her (the friend is a girl by the way, not Johnny ;p) but she spends lots of time in Oxford with her mom.

• Her favourite writers are William Blake, T.S. Eliot, Keats, Shelley, the Brontë sisters and Jane Austen.
• About the new roles she's playing, she's saying Sam (in The Perks of Being a Wallflower is very far from her own personality, that it was difficult to play. About playing with Kenneth Branagh and Michelle Willianms in My Week with Marilyn she says that it brought her in a very adult univers.
• She says Marilyn Monroe is not a model for her, that she feels closer to natural actresses like Natalie Portman and especially Julia Roberts.
• She's extremely shy but would love to work with Darren Aronofsky or Baz Luhrmann.
• She would love to write.

Quand je lis l'interview je reconnais pas Emma et son style (ça fait longtemps que je la suis, que je regarde/lis ses interview en anglais), j'ai l'impression qu'à la traduction ses mots ont été un peu "améliorés".
Qu'en pensent les autres ?

What is the time frame this interview took place? After/before perks filming? After/before HP DHP2 premiers?

She said it was difficult to play Sam so after filming Perks.

Forgive me as I do not speak French.

Google translate of the original article does not indicate she stated a sex of the person to move in her. Google Translate is not so trustworthy. I trust your interpretation a lot more. But what made you say that Emma's roommate was female?

It's Emma's words. She said "en attendant qu'une copine...". "Copine" means girlfriend, "Copain" means boyfriend. Copine and Copain are both used to talk about your friends, not lovers :)
