Back in 2018, Emma Watson broke up with her acting career after falling out of love with the profession she’s been a part of since she was a wee wizard in Harry Potter– adding her to the growing list of stars who decided to explore new territories outside of acting and transition to civilian-hood. Her last role was in 2019’s Little Women, and she really didn’t do press for it, so what happened?! Besides, Emma Watson’s American accent getting dragged across the internet.
Generally, well-tolerated kook Helena Bonham Carter admitted to having consulted a psychic to ask permission to play Princess Margaret on The Crown. But it doesn’t take a psychic to know that railing against “cancel culture” in defense of Johnny Depp and J.K. Rowling is a great way to transform yourself into a formally well-tolerated kook. Instead of paying some smelly hippy in a headband to read her Tarot cards, Helena could have just read the room and learned, FOR FREE, that J.K. and Johnny are perfectly capable of reminding us how much they suck without her help. Unless, of course, that smelly hippy with a headband was Johnny all along, posing as a psychic to trick HBC into accusing Amber Heard of jumping on the #MeToo bandwagon “because it’s the trend and to be the poster girl for it.” Say what you will about his aroma, but the man can really sell a bit!
In the 20th Anniversary special of the Harry Potter series–Return to Hogwarts which airs on HBO Max on New Year’s Day–Emma Watson opens up about how she became world-famous as a child and her struggles with fame nearly caused her to quit the series.
Earlier this month, we learned two things about Emma Watson. One, that she had appeared to have sustained some kind of injury to her knee, which required her to walk with the assistance of one of those sporty little four-wheeled mobility scooters. Two, that it looked like she had what appeared to be some kind of engagement-looking ring on her left hand’s ring finger. Well, speaking of possible breaks and engagements, The Daily Mail has been doing a little digging, and they seem to think that Emma Watson is taking a break from Hollywood to pursue her current situation as a possibly-engaged person.
Emma Watson isn’t just an actress. She’s also a feminist, activist, and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. Bow down,
bitches sisters! In early March, Emma interviewed political science professor and Sex and World Peace author, Valerie Hudson. Teen Vogue just published a condensed version of that conversation.
The two discussed feminism, labor issues, #MeToo, and forced child marriages in Malawi. They also talked about sexy shit, and while discussing gender roles in relationships, Emma praised same-sex relationships, and also let us know that she may be liking rope bondage tweets Armie Hammer-style.
Gwyneth Paltrow just nervously shifted in her seat and instructed an intern to find out more about this Emma Watson person. It’s about to be Calm Down Drink Time at the Goop offices, because Gwyneth could be worried that people are still talking about Emma’s vaguely new age-y idea of being consciously coupled with yourself. But she probably doesn’t have to worry. Emma is once again talking about the frilly term she made up to avoid saying the word “single,” and it sounds like she wasn’t seriously looking to be the next actress-turned-relationship expert when she made it up.
