Harry Potter beauty Emma Watson has been working in Hollywood since she was just a young girl and she has decided to use her fame to bring attention to causes closer to her heart, such as the HeForShe campaign. Emma says that it really upsets her when people criticise her for her feminism talks, although it has toughened her up.
During an interview with Elle magazine, Watson said, "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. There were a couple of days when I just didn't want to come out from under the duvet... I realised I needed 24 hours to sulk."
While Emma Watson has been more than happy to take to the stage and give speeches on feminism and other things that she feels strongly about and are close to her heart, she has admitted that she is a long way from ever writing her first book. Emma says that there is still plenty more for her to see and do before that time comes.
Watson added, "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."
As for her Hollywood career, Emma Watson plays the role of Belle in the live action Beauty and the Beast movie, which is set to open on March 17 in both the US and the UK.
