Emma Watson knows exactly why Belle chose the Beast over Gaston, and we’re pretty sure anyone and everyone will agree with her on why.
The British actress stars in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie, out in theaters in less than a month on March 17th.
“I think she can see in Beast that there’s someone who has been fundamentally good who has been damaged and who just needs rehabilitating,” she shared in her interview with Entertainment Weekly. “He is just in need of love, whereas Gaston is someone who has had nothing but love and admiration and easiness, and because he’s never suffered, he doesn’t have any empathy.”
“He’s [Gaston] essentially a narcissist, and it’s very difficult to intervene in that. He’s about building himself up while pushing others down. With Beast, you can tell he’s being unkind because he’s unkind to himself.”
