Bill Condon: "Women's issues have become Emma Watson's life's mission"

Bill Condon gave an interview to The Movie Times about 'Beauty and the Beast' and talked about Emma at 2:25.

Here's a transcript. Credit Watsonuncensored if you use it.

"How do you distinguish Belle again 25 years later in a live-action way? I think that was so much a part of the casting of Emma Watson. Because I do think of all the actresses her age, of her generation, she is the one who's sort of most closely defined with women's issues. Her activism with the UN... But in general it's really become her life's mission. So it was very exciting. I remember writing her a note and kind of pointing out that choices that people, actors making their careers sort of become part of their own autobiography, and that seems to have such a great fit in her life that I was hoping she was interested. Turned out she had been interested for years, have been developing her own version of it and what was then so exciting when she got on board was to work together with her."

And she inspired many others to do the same.

why doesn't she do more for the backward countries then? instead of preaching from her safe space?

ugh can we just enjoy this film for what it is please?

All dimensions of the Movie and the production are what it is Anon and can we not accept Emma as a person doing what she can, like the rest of us please.

she is the one who is using HFS for her own image. Every event, it's always focused on her. I know she is very privileged. The main reason why I cannot take her feminism seriously is mainly because despite that privilege, she still doesn't do anything real.

And what do you do exactly Anon, apart for the cowardly unjust attack on someone who does more in a week than I venture you would in a year. She helps does not spend Time on insulting people who deserve only praise.
