“Becoming yourself is really hard and confusing, and it’s a process. I was completely the eager beaver in school, I was the girl in the front of the class who was the first person to put her hand up, and it’s often not cool to be the person that puts themself out there, and I’ve often gotten teased mercilessly, but I found that ultimately if you truly pour your heart into what you believe in — even if it makes you vulnerable — amazing things can and will happen.”
—Emma Watson, on winning the Trailblazer Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards

“After all we’ve been through together, I don’t think anything can tear us apart. We are really tight. I go to Rupert when I need cheering up. He’s just fun. Dan is incredibly articulate…but he doesn’t budge so it drives me crazy. At the end of the day, when something goes badly, he’s the one I turn to and talk it over with.”
Emma: The first film, when I had to run down the great hall and hug Dan, and it seems like nothing, but I made a huge dead out of it, I was so mortified - me hugging a guy.
Dan: Did wonders for my self esteem.
If you could eat just one food, what would it be?
Nutella, basically on anything.
Emma: The lack of privacy I find difficult, the lack of anonymity. You can’t go to the pharmacy without someone being “Oh you are the girl from Harry Potter” and I’m like yeah… I’m just buying my tampons, see you in a bit! So, it’s a bit awkward sometimes but yeah, I don’t know, it’s a bit surreal, I’m not gonna lie, it’s a bit surreal.
