5 Times Emma Watson Was Belle Before 'Beauty & The Beast'

We have no doubt whatsoever that Emma Watson will be killing the red carpet on the press tour for Beauty and the Beast.

However, JJJ remembers all the other times that Emma, who plays Belle, reminded us of the amazing princess before she even got the role.

Belle, who made her animated movie debut in 1991, was a princess we never saw before — one that was kind and open and non judgemental.

Everything that Emma is.

So, before we all go see Beauty and the Beast and declare it’s the best movie ever, let’s go back and see all the times that Emma was actually the embodiment of Belle.

Emma Watson Definitely Knows That Harry & Ron Wouldn't Have Lasted Two Days Without Hermione Granger

Emma Watson Definitely Knows That Harry & Ron Wouldn't Have Lasted Two Days Without Hermione Granger

Emma Watson has finally said what we all knew all along — Hermione Granger was the true star of Harry Potter.

“Hermione was that perfect example of turning on its head this initial prejudice that she gets,” Emma shared in her recent EW cover story.

Emma played the role of Hermione for over 10 years, opposite Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.

“Hermione finds a way to wield her intelligence and become really the leader in this group of two other boys and that’s kind of the role that she assumes,” she added, reflecting on the exact impact she had on young girls.

“Harry is much more intuitive. Ron is just along for the ride. Hermione is the one with the plan. She’s in control.”

As Ronald Weasley would say, “We wouldn’t last two days without her.”

However, Hermione wouldn’t leave her friends behind for anything: “What is so fundamentally beautiful about Hermione is her loyalty to that group of friends. She’s really the glue that keeps that trio together. It’s fundamental, and the boys knew it, and they really treat her as if they know that.”

Emma Watson Cried Seeing 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' for the First Time

Emma Watson got super emotional while watching Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!

The 26-year-old actress explained that seeing Noma Dumezweni portray Hermione in the play brought her to tears.

“It was so strange. It was so emotional seeing Noma’s performance in a way that I had not anticipated at all. I went to the play…and she walked in the room and I just spontaneously burst into tears,” she explained to EW.

Emma added, “I had played that character so intensely up until that point, that to know that Hermione was going to be okay — I know it sounds crazy — but to know that everything turned out all right and everything in the world was okay, that there was someone else carrying her on and carrying her forward…it was just such a relief.”

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

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.”

Bonjour! Watch Emma Watson Sing 'Belle' in New Clip from 'Beauty and the Beast'

Bonjour! Watch Emma Watson Sing 'Belle' in New Clip from 'Beauty and the Beast'

One of the most iconic moments from the animated movie Beauty and the Beast is when the townspeople sing out “Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour, bonjour, bonjour!” in the first musical number and you can watch it come to life right now!

A clip of Emma Watson and the townspeople singing “Belle” in the live-action remake has been released ahead of the movie hitting theaters on March 17.

Emma is seen singing Belle’s line, “There goes the baker with his tray like always, the same old bread and rolls to sell. Ev’ry morning just the same, since the morning that we came, to this poor provincial town.”

Belle then shares a moment with the baker and you might notice that some of the dialogue between the two characters has been changed from the animated film. In the original film she says the book she just finished is about “a beanstalk and an ogre,” but in the live-action remake she says, “it’s about two lovers in fair Verona,” in reference to Romeo and Juliet.

Make sure to watch the clip of Emma singing “Belle (Reprise)” as well!

Emma Watson Declares Her Love For Belle & Beast's Love Story

Emma Watson Declares Her Love For Belle & Beast's Love Story

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.”
