Emma Watson is Elle’s March Cover Star & She Reveals how Critics have “Toughened her up”



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.
