Emma Watson Says There's No Stockholm Syndrome In 'Beauty & The Beast'

Emma Watson Says There's No Stockholm Syndrome In 'Beauty & The Beast'

Emma Watson has been a champion for changing Belle little by little for the upcoming Beauty and the Beast.

The actress didn’t wear a corset, and Belle was turned into an inventor for the film, and now Emma is opening up about one of the underlying messages of the film – Stockholm Syndrome.

Even when it was just an animated feature for children, the film was being talked about for that reason alone.

If you don’t know Stockholm Syndrome is a condition that causes hostages to develop a psychological bond with their captors, developing feelings of trust or affection.

“It’s such a good question and it’s something I really grappled with at the beginning; the kind of Stockholm Syndrome question about this story,” Emma shared in her new interview with EW.

She adds, “That’s where a prisoner will take on the characteristics of and fall in love with the captor. Belle actively argues and disagrees with [Beast] constantly. She has none of the characteristics of someone with Stockholm Syndrome because she keeps her independence, she keeps that freedom of thought.”

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.”
