Emma Watson is on the cover of Elle UK March 2017 issue and she opened up about how she has dealt with critics over the years.
See excerpts below:
On taking a year off from acting to concentrate on activism
It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything…I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.
On dealing with her critics
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.
On whether she would consider writing her own book:
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.
