IT IS TIME THAT WE ALL SEE GENDER AS A SPECTRUM INSTEAD OF TWO SETS OF OPPOSING IDEALS.— Emma Watson
The most provocative Emma Watson quotes that will transform you to a better person
There's nothing wrong with being afraid.
It's not the absence of fear, it's overcoming it. Sometimes you've got to blast through and have faith.
Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive.
Both men and women should feel free to be strong... It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.
For the record, feminism by definition is: 'The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.'
The saddest thing for a girl to do is dumb herself down for a guy.
Hermione uses all these big long tongue twister words.
I don't know what she's going on about half the time!
I'm going to do what I want to do. I'm going to be who I really am. I'm going to figure out what that is.
My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.
I have felt for the last 10 years I have had this battle;
I've been fighting so hard to have an education. It's been this uphill struggle. I was Warner Bros' pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult.
I have collections of quirky things from places I've been to, like a set of Russian dolls.
I don't have makeup on all the time, but when I want, I have fun with my friends choosing clothes and putting nail polish on.
If I could wear any label forever it would be Burberry.
It covers a huge span of stuff. You can't go wrong with a classic trench and a pair of jeans.
I don't want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself.
Becoming yourself is really hard and confusing, and it's a process.
It's often not cool to be the person who puts themselves out there.
All I can do is follow my instincts, because I'll never please everyone.
Feeling beautiful has nothing to do with what you look like. I promise.
If not me- who?, If not now- when?
I HAVE REALIZED THAT FIGHTING FOR WOMEN'S RIGHTS HAS TOO OFTEN BECOME SYNONYMOUS WITH MAN-HATING. IF THERE IS ONE THING I KNOW FOR CERTAIN, IT IS THAT THIS HAS TO STOP.
I truly, truly believe that beauty is something that comes from within.
I keep telling myself that I'm a human being, an imperfect human being who's not made to look like a doll, and that who I am as a person is more important than whether at that moment I have a nice figure.
Believe in yourself and go for it
Hermione is so close to who I am as a person that I've never really had to research a role. I'm literally rediscovering what it means to be an actress.
I want to be normal. I really want anonymity.
Don't feel stupid if you don't like what everyone else pretends to love.
I feel like a voodoo doll. It's grim. It's gross.
But it's a journey and the sad thing is you only learn from experience, so as much as someone can tell you things, you have to go out there and make your own mistakes in order to learn.
I've probably earned the right to screw up a few times.
I don't want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.
It is my belief that there is a greater understanding than ever that women need to be equal participants in our homes, in our societies, in our governments, and in our workplaces.
I've found that if ultimately, if you truly pour your heart into what you believe in, even if it makes you vulnerable, amazing things can and will happen.
There's nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point.
You want what you're wearing to say something about you, about who you are.
My friends are all really nice about my fame, they're just curious really, they ask lots of questions.
I used to look back at pictures and cringe but actually I'm quite proud that I've had fun with fashion and don't always look perfect. The only regret I have is when I look at something I wore when I was very young and it obviously looks like it belonged to someone else.
Really I was open-minded about doing anything, but the one thing I didn't want to do was get myself into a corset, because I was worried I'd never get out again.
Yes, I will put it out there - I will work for anyone for free if they're prepared to make their clothing Fair Trade and organic. It's really hard to get people interested in it.
I feel like young girls are told, I don’t know, that they have to be this kind of princess and fragile. It’s bullshit. I identify much more with being a warrior, a fighter. If I was going to be a princess I’d be a warrior princess definitely.
The saddest thing for a girl to do is to dumb herself down for a guy.
I like men with quick wit, good conversation and a great sense of humour.
I love banter. I want a man to like me for me - I want him to be authentic.
I like Valentino a lot - they never use actresses in their campaigns.
I do things in my own way, but I've never felt any need to rebel.
The most embarrassing one is that I had no idea - and please excuse me - that you guys call a condom a rubber. My version of a rubber is an eraser. I've done that - very loudly asked for a rubber and people have given me strange looks. That was embarrassing!
If you believe in equality, you're a feminist. Sorry to tell you.
There's nothing interesting about looking perfect.
Young girls are told you have to be the delicate princess.
Hermione taught them that you can be the warrior.
You might be thinking who is this Harry Potter girl? And what is she doing up on stage at the UN. It's a good question and trust me I have been asking myself the same thing. I don't know if I am qualified to be here. All I know is that I care about this problem. And I want to make it better.
I think that it is very important if you know what you want, understand where you are heading towards, and try your best to get it. It is only when we use our hearts to do it, and fall in love with what we are doing, then can we really get real determination.
If anyone else played Hermione, it would actually kill me.
I'm a perfectionist, so my bossiness definitely comes out.
I find the whole concept of being 'sexy' embarrassing and confusing.
If I do a photo-shoot, people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there's the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that's not me.
As a child, I loved being onstage. I loved singing, I loved the lights, I loved the adrenaline. I even loved learning lines. I was completely obsessive.
I paint and I draw and I write and I do other things too, and recently some people at school were asking if I'd ever publish any of my work. But I almost feel like I would have to publish it under another name because there's a definition of me out there that feels kind of stuck in the moment when it was formed.
It was unbelievable seeing me as an action figure! In a few months, toddlers all around the country will be biting my head off!
