Emma Watson covers ELLE UK (March 2017)

Emma is ELLE UK's Woman of the Year and will be at the ceremony in London on February 13, 2017.


On taking a year off from acting to concentrate on activism:

'It wasn't about me necessarily proving anything… I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let's see what we can do to 'move the needle' and make a difference.'

On her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast:

'For me, Beauty was the perfect, most joyful thing to do... There was something connected about Hermione and Belle, and it was good to be reminded that I am an actress; this is what I do. The film is pure escapism.'

On dealing with her critics:

'It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that's a completely different ball game.'

On whether she would consider writing her own book:

'I need to see and do a bit more first... I'm no expert, and when people push me into a corner of "here's Emma Watson to lecture you on feminism", it's uncomfortable because I am aware I have a long way to go. I am not sure I deserve all the respect I get yet, but I'm working on it.'

Wait, wait! We're all missing the most important question of all:


Is the dog Emma's? Male or female? Name?
