Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Emma Watson Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
I just feel like if I start opening the door to talking about my university experience, then people just kind of… own everything. There was a lot of stuff a couple of years ago saying that I was bullied at Brown and awful things like that, none of which were true.
I could never really imagine myself doing one thing, and I’m pretty sure that I’ll end up doing four or five different things. I want to be a Renaissance woman. I want to paint, and I want to write, and I want to act, and I want to just do everything.
I love Karl Lagerfeld. I worship him. I was brought up in Paris, and my mum used to wear a lot of Chanel. I love the brand.
I want to be normal. I really want anonymity.
I feel like a voodoo doll. It’s grim. It’s gross.
I guess what really forms you as a person is what you do within your family to receive love or attention. In my family, what you had to do to receive attention was to have good conversation at the dinner table or for me to do well at school, and those were really my focuses because that was what was valued the most.
I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love – and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.
I didn’t come from a background of films. I didn’t even really ever watch films. The fact is, my parents weren’t into that stuff, and neither was I.
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.
I’ve always been fascinated by Elizabeth Taylor, and I had read that her first kiss happened on a film set, which actually made me a little sad. You need to have normal experiences of your own.
I want to be a Renaissance woman. I want to paint, and I want to write, and I want to act, and I want to just do everything.
I have had no control over my life. I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.
Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint to me are like a pair of warm-hearted brothers.
I don’t really buy designer stuff. I have a few nice things, but I don’t really have the occasion to wear couture too often.
I just loved performing. It just made me feel alive. It’s scary, but that’s part of it. I think it’s important to have that extra adrenaline. It gives you that extra zing.
I like books that aren’t just lovely but that have memories in themselves. Just like playing a song, picking up a book again that has memories can take you back to another place or another time.
I’m really interested in modern history, but to fulfill a History degree at Brown you have to do modern and pre-modern.
I love painting and have a need to do it.
I don’t consider myself to be a celebrity. I don’t fit that mould.
It sounds so geeky, but I really do like studying and reading, and if I’m not working on ‘Harry Potter,’ then my greatest relaxation is to sit with a book.
If I went to somewhere busy, I wouldn’t last very long. I can’t go to a museum – I’ll last 10 or 15 minutes in a museum. The problem is that when one person asks for a photograph, then someone sees a flash goes off, then everyone else sort of… it’s sort of like a domino effect.
I always have several books on the go at any one moment, so it’s no good you asking ‘What’s on the bedside table at the moment, Emma?’ because often I can’t even see the table!
I had a job when I was 10. I started living on my own when I was 17 or 18. I’ve earned my own money; I’ve traveled the world. What would I rebel against?
I’ve never understood having crushes on people who you don’t know in real life.
I dance a lot and I run and do yoga and play field hockey and tennis. I like to be active. I don’t always have time for that stuff, but I do always feel better afterward.
I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.
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.
It’s amazing people get so detached from what they eat and what they wear. No one has any contact with how things are made that are put in their body and put in their mouths and I just find it alarming that no one questions it.
People don’t really understand, but having people stare, and point, and take pictures, even if it is in a positive framework, is quite isolating; there’s no two ways about it. You feel a little bit, you know, freakish.
I thought, If people are going to write about what I’m wearing, then I would wear young British designers who need the publicity.
I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn’t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I’d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.
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.
My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.
And I always keep cards people send me. I have a whole wall covered with them.
I’m not going to school just for the academics – I wanted to share ideas, to be around people who are passionate about learning.
It’s very hard to describe your own style. And I’m young, so I’m still experimenting. But I think it’s quite British and very much about individuality.
All I can do is follow my instincts, because I’ll never please everyone.
I really love animals and enjoy working with them.
It’s quite stressful knowing that every time you walk out the door, someone is going to be giving you a very good look up and down, judging everything you wear.
It sounds like a cliche but I also learnt that you’re not going to fall for the right person until you really love yourself and feel good about how you are.
Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.
As an actress I take roles I find interesting.
In terms of men I fancy, I think the actor James Franco is gorgeous. But I find it odd to be described as a sex symbol myself.
As I’ve got older, and since I cut all my hair off, I’ve felt a bit more liberated about trying different things out.
I’m a real Londoner. We have very grey weather in London, and I think it encourages a very eclectic and crazy fashion sense. I mix high-street stuff with more high-end fashion, and I love vintage.
I stole a piece of the chess set on the first film. I took a piece of the treasure out of Bellatrix’s vault on this film. And I’ve taken my wand and I’ve got my cloak.
I think the actresses who are really successful are the ones who are comfortable in their own skins and still look human.
Hermione uses all these big long tongue twister words. I don’t know what she’s going on about half the time!
I don’t think my dad really knew what to do with me, as a daughter. He treated me like a boy; my brother and I were treated the same. He didn’t do kid stuff. There were no kid’s menus; you weren’t allowed to order off the kid’s menu at dinner – we had to try something from the adult menu.
Field hockey is my strongest sport, and if I lose a game, I take a long, hot bath and moan about it.
I’m a very heady person; I’m in my head a lot.
I try to avoid wearing black because sometimes it’s the easy option. But I’m young, so it’s nice to be able to play with color and not just wear black all the time. I can save that for when I’m older.
I’m very romantic and of course I want to be in love.
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.
Let’s be honest, I have enough money to never have to work again.
