The actress opened up about agreeing to portray Belle in the mag’s Beauty and the Beast preview issue, on newsstands tomorrow (February 17)!
Here’s what she had to say:
On Belle’s superpower: “What’s so beautiful about this story as a whole is this idea that Belle is able to see past these extraneous, external, superficial qualities of Beast. She is able to see deeper, and that’s one of her special powers. It is her superpower: empathy.”
Also in the issue, Emma reveals what struggles she sees today for women and girls, as well as the movie that made her decide to not quit acting. EW also looks into how the Beauty and the Beast design team crafted the Beast’s ballroom.
