Actress Emma Watson is out with a new interview revealing why she left behind the big screen in favour for some time for herself. Since 2019, the actress has been on sort of a retirement journey if you will afteer a series of mishaps on set led her to reconsider the direction she was actually going.
“I wasn’t very happy if I’m being honest,” she told the Financial Times on April 28. “I think I felt a bit caged. The thing I found really hard was that I had to go out and sell something that I really didn’t have very much control over.”
Her grievance s were compounded by the duties of publicizing her work.
“To stand in front of a film and have every journalist be able to say, ‘How does this align with your viewpoint?’ It was very difficult to have to be the face and the spokesperson for things where I didn’t get to be involved in the process,” she said. “I was held accountable in a way that I began to find really frustrating because I didn’t have a voice, I didn’t have a say. And I started to realize that I only wanted to stand in front of things where if someone was going to give me flak about it, I could say, in a way that didn’t make me hate myself, ‘Yes, I screwed up, it was my decision, I should have done better.’”
Watson’s last rle was in 2019 in the Oscar nominated Little Women.
