Mentions of Emma Watson in the media [April 27 - May 3, 2015]

  • Emma Watson and Carey Mulligan for '21 Jump Street'?

There is a reboot of the movie '21 Jump Street' in the work with an all-female main cast. Eonline proposes a few duos, among them Emma and Carey:
It's a Brit invasion! These two are obviously better known for more serious roles, but they've got comedic chops just waiting to be seen by the world.

  • Cofounder of Fizziology mentions Emma:

Fizziology is one such social media research firm which provides studios with reports sourced from online sentiments. 
Casting someone who has a young fan base in an R-rated movie, for example, seems like an unwise business decision. 
Emma Watson has a huge social following online and anything she appears in gets a ton of conversation,” Ben Carlson (cofounder of the Indianapolis, IN-based company which has built software that plugs into Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and blogs to follow conversations about movies.) notes. “But that might not translate to a movie that doesn’t attract her typically female audience.”

Why we love Emma Watson
Oh, how close we came to not knowing Emma ‘English Rose’ Watson, having nearly lost her to France, where the elfin Harry Potter starlet lived until she was five. Sarkozy’s loss is our gain, of course, and once the accent was dropped the young natural blonde was bagging roles in school plays like The Happy Prince
Surprisingly, perhaps, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone was Emma Watson's first professional acting gig at 11 – it was also the top-earning film of 2001 and netted her nominations for five awards. Yeah, only five, but it was her first role after all so we’ll let her off. Still living at home with her mum in Oxford keeps Emma grounded. But somehow, though… we like that, they've clearly got an AGA. 
Five instalments in to the Harry Potter set however, Emma Watson decided to do other work too. Shattering a bunch of Hogwarts-worshippers illusions, Emma appeared in a television film called Ballet Shoes. With all of the Potter films now finally done with, it’s time for Watson to fully branch out in to the real world. Well, as real as the world can be when you’re raking in millions of pounds a year. She started with a film called My Week with Marilyn in 2011, and with her fingers in many a fashion pie – including modelling for Burberry – we can expect to see plenty more of her in the coming years.


  • Tena Dedae (actress) picks Emma for most stylist:

The most stylish person in show business - Emma Watson.
She picked Taylor Swift as her style icon though.

  • Nick (left on the picture) from the music band 'The Press War' definitely has a thing for Emma

Some people take words too seriously, so let me say first that he's very much into sarcasms.
DREAM GIG:Nick: Serenading Emma Watson over a candlelit anniversary dinner with our children and Uncle Tony and Uncle Ceddy. 
5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH:Nick: Emma Watson, Barbara Palvin, Victoria Justice, Miranda Kerr, and Bill Burr.

If you want to listen to their music:

  • Carey Mulligan (actress): "What Emma Watson does is incredible"

Carey Mulligan's CV is already pretty full, and yet she would still be happy to take on a UN role as Emma Watson famously did last year, becoming a Women Goodwill Ambassador.

When we asked if she'd consider accepting such a position, she replied "definitely", before going onto discuss Watson's work for the organisation

"Definitely," she said. "What Emma does is incredible and it's such an important role. She has such a huge following, so everything she says is closely followed and watched. The great thing about our job is that you have a platform to talk about things you're passionate about. I work with children in conflict with War Child and I also work with Alzheimer's Society. Care for the elderly, and for children is something I feel strongly about."

Hello Eden... Days ago I found this video It's from a girl in Argentina and she said how she met Emma and how she talked with them for 10 minutes. She said many interesting things... I hope you find it interesting.

Interesting that they'd propose Emma for a 21js reboot, though I doubt she'd do it if it meant working with Tatum again at all. The rumors about his sexual harassment of Emma on set are still just rumors...but she did start going public with supporting feminism soon after that.

Is that really true with Tatum. I had read about that and was horrified. Since Tatum is a married man, I could not believe he would behave in such an infantile manner.

The rumours only come from one extra.

James Franco also commented about it, and he said that whatever happened was in the script, that Emma (though he didn't give a name) knew about it before hand.

Unless Emma herself comments about it, I don't think it's very fair to judge Tatum based on that one report of an extra who was saying she was playing a zombie in the movie, even though there were no such things.

Emma could have been upset over something that had nothing to do with anyone in the cast.
