Mentions of Emma Watson in the media [June 25 - July 01, 2018]



  • Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie: "Emma Watson is so confident and she speaks out about her values"

Among the fast-rising talents presenting at the Cannes International Film Festival in May was Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, a young New Zealander who plays the female lead in Debra Granik’s “Leave No Trace,” which opens today in the U.S.

[...]

Fellow New Zealander Jane Campion is a close family friend, and Harcourt McKenzie acted in a short directed by Campion’s daughter, Alice Englert, who she lists among her role models. Actors she admires include Emma Watson, “because she’s so confident and she speaks out about her values,” Meryl Streep and Frances McDormand.

  • Emma part of a conspiracy theory

Baseball great Curt Schilling has quite a story he’d like to share—and it’s not about his famous “bloody sock” playoff game. On Tuesday, the retired Boston Red Sox pitcher promoted a video on his Facebook page explaining the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy, which posits that President Trump and his allies in the military are about to sweep away a cabal of globalist elites responsible for all the evil in the world.

The video also includes allusions to the Pizzagate conspiracy, which has been embraced by many QAnon believers. The video shows an apparently random selection of celebrities, including Eminem, Jonah Hill, Jackie Chan, and Emma Watson, before showing an image of a child with a hand over its mouth.

I don't get it. What does it have to do with emma?

Heh, didn't know Perks wasn't already on Netflix. Was actually planning on re-watching it soon, funny how that works. My favourite movie and performance from her.

i remember the perks era fondly so much hope for her and her career.....the she joined the he for she for he for yawn and it all went wrong

"she joined the he for she for he for yawn and it all went wrong"...
So she should haven't joined the campaign for women's equality and she souldn't promote women's rights?
She should think exclusively about her acting career???
You're so pathetic.

(I'm anon @ 6/29/2018 03:21:00 am) I somewhat agree with both of you, actually. I really appreciate the she does in gender equality. As an actress, I thought Perks was a good sign of her career potential after Harry Potter, but it has been more inconsistent than I was hoping since then, as far as reception and some of her choices of roles, some I thought being pretty good, others not so much. And now it seems to have been put on hold, no signs as to when, if ever, another movie would come.

I'm pretty sure those numbers rest largely on "Harry Potter" and "Beauty and the Beast," because -- although it was a very good, if not amazing, movie -- "The Circle" certainly underperformed at the box office.

Agreed.

The numbers are a bit skewed because they rest solely HP and BATB. Its not like she is consistently grossing a lot of money with her other projects. Swap her out with some other actress for those movies and the same would be said. I know, i know, i can hear the whining from the stans that im hating but im really not. Its just the straight truth about her financial situation and the stats provided above.

Oh my god the same old silly song. It has become nauseating. It does not mean nothing. Every other actress in her place would have brought the same number box office wise. You are a broken record. I am not an hater but I will bring this points every time someone mention her box office revenue to belittle her achievements. Vomit. I don't know how this place became so filled with people like you tbh

"Oh my god the same old silly song. It has become nauseating."

lol exactly

"Swap her out with some other actress for those movies and the same would be said. "

So what? that could be said about (almost) every other actress or actor in that list. Do you think Avengers would have done less if Emily Blunt played Black Widow instead of Scarlett? Most of those actors in that list are also there because they have decades and decades of movies under their belt, Emma is one of the youngest and thus with the less numerous philmography.
It's also not completely true that those movie would have done the same if another actress was there. She is one of the main reason Batb made more than a 1 billion, she helped Perks being made and that movie wouldn't have done the same with her star power, she was the main focus of the promotion of the Bling Ring and while mine is only an anectodal story most of my circle of friends went to see it because of her. Some of her movies did not made bank but I'd argue most would have done less than they made without her involvement.

" I know, i know, i can hear the whining from the stans that im hating but im really not. "

Yet you are here providing for the hundred times the same weak arguments every time someone brings up her box office results.

"Its just the straight truth about her financial situation and the stats provided above."

What stats? Oh my god lol. The only stats is the one provided above. Any other thing is your personal opinion.

Not everyone who states the truth is a stan.
Is Emma in the top 50 most succesful people box office wise? Yes---> FACT
Would have those movies done the same without her? Yes -----> OPINION

Learn the difference

Emma Watson should quit acting if she hasn't already because clearly she only Does acting for Money & Fame.
Her mind is elsewhere.
You can disagree with me but in your Heart you know it's True ��

Awe, how cute. Someone is all angry. Lmao

Holly said...

I'm glad for Emma's success, all the more so considering she's not worked in a little while. I say, good for her. She's in a place where she can afford to work or not. And she's doing what she wants behind the scenes.

She is also the one with the highest average per movie according to that graphic. Rupert Grint, whom Emma's haters love to lust over, has one movie less than her in a lead role and yet less in average.

I could continue but I think I have already put you little girl to shame enough

RDJ playing Ironman is was instrumental to it's success. No Ironman with RDJ and MCU would not be the sucess it is today. Oh dear.....


As for the others no one is saying they deserve being in this list. It's you seemingly thinking Emma is still relevant. LOL.

Oh you middle aged stans make me laugh so hard. Sad.

Anonymous said...

I like how you picked RDJ, SJ and SLJ both worlds apart from EW in terms of acting and recognition. Epic fail on your part.

But you old man stans don't do logic. Keep talking to your EW poster above your bed in your moms basement pal!

:D xxx

And yet, it's her who was chosen for both roles. Nothing will ever change the fact that she was in these films, and they were a success. They are part of her career. She's the one playing these roles, and can't be dissociated from these films. You can imagine "any other actress lol" in your head, won't change the final result. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"It's you seemingly thinking Emma is still relevant. LOL."

But if she's so irrelevant, why are you here? LOL

Anonymous said...

"And yet, it's her who was chosen for both roles" yeah that is the lamest attempt at attacking an actress or actor or whatever than one can do. Maybe the haters can go live in one of universes where another actress was chosen for those films and Emma isn't objectively one of the most successful at the box office. aHAHAHAH

Because their life are irrelevant,they are spending their sunday in summer arguing on a blog about how "irrelevant" an actress they don't like is.

So whats wrong with being a stan or a fan or whatever? Like atleast these people spend time on reading about people they are fans of, how is your life better than theirs when all u do is hunt down stan/fan blogs anad spread ur hate?

"So whats wrong with being a stan or a fan or whatever?"

Nothing wrong with being a fan, im a fan as well but not a fanatic. Its fine being a fan but its also fine challenging ideas and challenging those same idols whether the topic may be. Sure, you will have those who troll because they have nothing better to do but its also equally as annoying when you try to make a point and then the "stans" as you call them start insulting, trolling, etc doing all the things you say the haters are doing but end up doing yourself.

If you cant live a life without challenges or disagreements than how are you any better than those you feel are "haters"? I keep seeing comments about "get a life" but then i have to wonder why are you here? Isnt the ideo to discuss the topic which happens to be Emma Watson? From what ive seen nothing on this site says "Positive comments only". Ive been a fan of Watson's for a few years now so its easy for me to pick up those who are trolling for the sake of trolling and those that make valid criticisms even if i dont agree with them.

Not everyone is a stan and not everyone is a hater but if it bothers you that bad to where you act like they do than maybe stepping away from the site for a while would benefit you. Some people can be a fan of a celebrity/athlete/musician etc and yet still have valid criticism. There is no rulebook that states you have to stick your head up that individual's ass to be a fan. I mean come on. Lol

Anonymous said...

Answering to a post which states her objective success at the box office is "valid criticism"? You are delusional

I love it when the same person pretends to be more than one person. These stans are sooo salty. LOLZ

Sundas said...

Haha you have nothing proper to say so you're changing your tone. First of all I'm very much a different person which is why I go by my name. Just because everyone can see you're dumb as hell and start your bs eveytime she breathes, doesn't mean its the same person. And I'm sorry valid criticism? You come on fan sites , call yourself a "fan" but lash out at fans call them names and ridiculous things and think thats ok?? Please educate yourself and learn to be more tolerant. I have been a fan of Watson for as long as I can remember, yes I may not agree with what she is doing or whatever and sometimes I feel let down that this is not what my role model was supposed to be but at the end, heck beginning of the day, its her god damn life and she can do whatever the fuck she wants. Why do I come to the site? Because I can. What I cant do is be mean to strangers just to validate my feelings and existence. Which I don't but you do. So Please take a long hard look in the mirror and get help. Sincerely, Sundas :)

Cheers Sundas. Can't sleep due to the heat so will read your comment to get me off later.

Merci

Haters by definition is someone who criticize even when there is nothing to criticize. Even if it was 100% true, who cares if another actress would have done the same in her place? She still was the one chosen forma both HP and Batb. And if indeed she is as talentess and plain ad some of you love to spout, and at the same time Batb would have done the same without another actress, then why Disney did chose her? If she really did not bring anything to the table, not talent nor name recognition then why picking her?

Sundas said...

More like cant sleep due to the deafening sounds of ur failure :) Enjoy!

Anonymous said...

Nothing wrong with "valid criticism". Except there's none of it here. They are trolls, trolling.

As for not coming here because of trolls... Why should people who actually enjoy Emma's work, or want to support her, or like her as a person, or think positively about her, not be able to do so because idiots come here to spread BS on every positive article? Why shouldn't they be the ones to leave?

Anonymous said...

Thanks Sundas.

Now I was going to ask you to tell me what EW has coming up on her résumé but that wouldn't be very long.

Thanks again.

Anonymous said...

It's all right, you can still watch her previous projects, including "Beauty and the Beast", where she's the leading lady. Or you could watch any other actress' movies.

Sundas said...

She can do whatever she wants wih her CV. She doesn't owe you shit. :)

As long as she wastes time doing nothing. I am happy.

If Emma had never done BATB what would you hyper fans have to cling on to? She would never be cast such a role today, it was only because of her HP fame she got the role.

She has been so disappointing.

Aronofsky yes but Coppola not so much. She was cast in those movies during her honeymoon period post Potter. Today? Not a chance in hell.

LOL.

"hoping she goes under the radar like dan and do some interesting indie stuff"

Yes! I think this would be really cool and maybe less stressful in terms of promotion/box office expectations, etc. But she doesn't really seem interested in any of this anymore.
