Emma Watson Doesn't Think She's Ready to Write a Book Yet

Emma Watson has been hard at work for the past year on her activism work, but she doesn’t think she’s quite ready to write a book about her work as a feminist.

The 26-year-old Beauty and the Beast actress is on the cover of Elle UK‘s March 2017 issue. Here is what she had to share:

On taking a year off from acting to concentrate on activism: “It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything…I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.”

On dealing with her critics: “It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.”

On whether she would consider writing her own book: “I need to see and do a bit more first… I’m no expert, and when people push me into a corner of ‘here’s Emma Watson to lecture you on feminism,’ it’s uncomfortable because I am aware I have a long way to go. I am not sure I deserve all the respect I get yet, but I’m working on it.”

On her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast: “For me, Beauty was the perfect, most joyful thing to do… There was something connected about Hermione and Belle, and it was good to be reminded that I am an actress; this is what I do. The film is pure escapism.”
