Watson Interviews

Actress Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) was recently revealed as the cover girl for the July 2011 issue of Vogue magazine.

In an extensive interview with the fashion magazine, Ms. Watson discusses what life was like balancing Harry Potter and her education, her other projects such as the ethical clothing line People Tree, and preparation for her next film, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." The article also includes quotes from producer David Heyman, director David Yates, and co-star Daniel Radcliffe about their time working with Ms. Watson.

In time, the crew on the set of Harry Potter became Emma’s surrogate family, too. It was not just about bonding with her costars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint: Heyman’s emphasis on continuity ensured that year after year the same driver took Emma to and from Leavesden Studios, the same cafeteria lady doled out her eggs, and the same hairdressers combed her famous brown tresses. Emma grew close to the head of makeup, Amanda Knight, and would while away the hours experimenting in the makeup trailer. “That was my playground. I would sit and play with lipsticks, foundations, and eye shadows; and every now and then Amanda would let me do the extras’ face paint for the Quidditch matches.”
The entire article is available to read online and includes some fantastic new photos of the actress taken by photographer Mario Testino.

I can’t get the slideshow to advance beyond the second picture, but from what I can see, I don’t like the Vampira look on her. She looks unhealthy, like she hasn’t been outdoors in 6 months.

Other than that, props to Ms. Watson for saying flat-out ’I’m a feminist.’ I hope that all her young female fans take note. I also hope that at some point it will occur to her that obsessing over fashion and makeup doesn’t exactly make one a great feminist role model. Just because some women are able to make a living off their looks doesn’t mean that a woman’s looks are the standard by which her contributions in life ought to be evaluated.

I am so sorry for the multiple posts – I keep getting frozen screens and Bad Gateway errors, then suddenly they all appear at once. I wish there were a way to delete the extras. My apologies.
