Emma's quotes to remember

DISCLAIMER: This blog is my opinion. I'm not saying everything I say is true but I'm not making anything up. I pride myself on using facts, evidence, sources, and deductive reasoning. I'm not an inside source but I was not born yesterday. I use Emma's words showing her inconsistencies with what she says versus what she does. Everything she says is actually the opposite of who she is when you pay attention to what she actually does. She preaches about being honest and true to yourself when she isn't. She claims virtues and convictions she doesn't adhere to. She constantly portrays a false sense of modesty, morality and ethics that she never follows. It's not her actions that bother me. She can smoke crack for all I care. It's all her deceptions that built up her fake persona she gets lauded for. She is more of a brand than being the genuine article. Emma is a prettily weaved illusion designed to trick you. She is a celebrity (they get so much attention in society) and she is pretty (beauty culture obsession), and these days that’s as good as being a god (celebrity worship syndrome). This blog was not created to point out what an awful human being she is. I don't believe she's a horrible person but when it comes to a stereotyped fake celebrity she fits the mold perfectly. This blog was created as a push back to the mindless adoration and to point out what others refuse or fail to do. I don’t know Emma the private person but what I do know is Emma the public person (celebrity) is full of contradiction, hypocrisy and deceptions. Her entire public persona is built on being the anti-celebrity but in reality she's ever bit of the fame hungry attention seeker she claims not to be. Celebrities should be looked at as products. They're trying to sell us (the consumers) something by using the same marketing ploys we see in ads every day. They make millions doing this. We have every right as consumers to call bullshit when the product does not work as advertised. Celebrities made a choice to be public figures and can walk away if they wish, so anything they put out there is up for debate.

QUOTES OF EMMA'S TO REMEMBER: "There seems to be this feeling that all of us were bursting to break out of these images we had created but that’s never been the case (2009)." and "I do not think I "ought" to be a model of reference for my fame. But I want to do something good by using my public image and reputation (2009)." and "Actually, I'm quite shy, I've never liked attention and money. I feel myself a little bit like Finding Nemo's Dory. I just keep swimming and don't turn around to watch the mess (2010)." and "I think you should be yourself because otherwise, you'll be on the wrong path and the results are not gonna be pretty (2010)." and " It's very weird. I have to kind of like switch heads. Sometimes I manage it seamlessly, and other times I feel rather all over the place. I explained to a friend that sometimes I feel a bit schizophrenic, like I have a split personality (2010)." and "In terms of a role model the cleanest way to live as a human and artist to be true to yourself (2011)." and "Never have something to hide or lose (2011)." and "Fame was never something I ever aspired to and it's not something I aspire to now really (2011)." NEW ONES (I find these new ones peculiar because I've said she's fake and a brand repeatedly since February 2011: Is she trying to come clean?): "Let’s say there’s a side of me, the one represented in the media, that does not match who I really am in private life. (2012)." and "It kind of does feel that way [like I am a brand]. That’s just something I’ve come to realize, that there’s a public persona (2013)." and "When you’re playing someone else and you’re playing a public persona for the media, you almost lose your own identity and who you are." and "I try my best to be as authentic as I can. I try to be real, but I also understand there’s a distinction between the me that walks red carpets, and the me that is just myself, at home (2013)." and "Similar to you, I used to try to hide what I was doing, and I would end up in these awkward positions where I would have to go and do something [for work] but I would say I was doing something else. I would try to hide that I had a car picking me up—I would hide the car around the corner so that people would think I was walking. All of these elaborate kinds of schemes to pretend I was like everyone else (2013).”

ONE MORE EMMA QUOTE TO CONSIDER from an interview in 2009, "Did you ever steal any of the props? “Yes, I did. We were doing a scene in Gringotts and there was all of this plastic gold that’s in there, but Dan, Rupert and I spent like the whole week smuggling it out for crew members who wanted souvenirs. They weren’t giving any of it away, so we nicked it. We were actually competing in the end and I got really good at it. I looked like the innocent one, so they nobody really noticed me, but they checked the boys. So I think I got about four or five pieces out. That was funny.” And that's the just of it. Emma looks to innocent to be anything other than what she makes herself up to be. It makes doing this blog rather difficult at times because people do not want to believe Emma is anything but honest. There is also the issue of Emma stating for years she is just like the fictional character Hermione. People get confused between Emma the actress and Hermione the make believe character she was portraying. They are nothing alike.

OTHER QUOTES: "The great thing about Emma is that she's a chameleon that can communicate anything you ask." - Mario Testino. "Any actor who tells you that they have become the people they play, unless they’re clearly diagnosed as a schizophrenic, is bullshitting you.” - Gary Oldman. "The image is one thing and the human being is another...It's very hard to live up to an image, put it that way." - Elvis Presley. "It is much easier to be honest than to be caught up in a bunch of lies. At least this way, you know who you are." - Mila Kunis

Emma Watson's bossy HeforShe United Nations speech

I was reading some of the reactions to her speech. Some of them said "passionate" while others said "powerful". Did they watch the same video of her speech like I did. First off she came off very nervous of which I totally understand. She also looked like she was going to cry at any given moment. This was not exactly a speech given by a strong opinionated woman. She seemed like a scared child having a conversation with adults. Her facial expressions were really weird. It reminded me of her acting. So how was this speech passionate or powerful?

The "passionate" and "powerful" proclamations actually originated from one website and then the Internet just followed suit with it. Her stans and feminists just rolled with it because media was telling them how great her speech was. What she said I've heard out of other people's mouths and in chat forums on the Internet. She stated nothing knew, deep or intellectual. It just snowballed into this over dramatic social media juggernaut because a celebrity said it. 

Her feminism is nothing knew. She came out as feminist years ago.  Here are just two quotes: From people.com July 2007, "Likening certain aspects of her personality to Hermione, Watson says, "I'm a bit of a feminist. I'm very competitive and challenging." From iheartwatson.net Vogue US: June 2011, "I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation." The irony is this last quote. 

Here is some examples of feminist Watson giving shade to women 

From people.com 2007 "There are too many stupid girls in the media," Watson, tells Parade magazine in this weekend's issue. "Hermione's not scared to be clever. I think sometimes really smart girls dumb themselves down a bit, and that's bad." .... From iheartwatson.net Feb 2009 (Russian Elle), There are actresses who don’t know about things like doing their own laundry and getting the bus. I’m not going to be like that.” .... From telegraph.co.uk Feb 2009 “Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn't do that.Personally, I don't actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I'm here with my boobs out and a short skirt…have a look at everything I’ve got’? My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder."  You know this last quote out of all of them is reposted, reblogged and repeated a lot but she lying then and on this blog under "flashing" and "fashion nonsense" you will see she did not adhere to this quote.... Like so many she never does but no one pays mind to keep her honest but me. 

From stuff.co.nz May 2012, “Emma Watson thinks it's "sad" when women "hide themselves" behind layers of make-up. The British actress is famed for her understated beauty, and avoids wearing cosmetics during the day even though she is associated with cosmetics brand Lancome. Watson thinks more women should embrace their natural look. "I love the French 'less is more' look - there's something very classy about it. It's so sad when women hide themselves behind too much make-up." Later that year she admitted wearing a lot of makeup is one of her biggest problems. Girls hide behind make-up because of celebrities like Watson who are already naturally attractive but then has their image manipulated in fashion magazines and whatnot. From emma-watson.net Sept 2012, I think the line between what being an actor is and what being a celebrity is has gotten so fuzzy that people don’t even know what we do anymore. Models are actresses and actresses are models and actresses are designing sofas, and it’s crazy. I don’t know if it will change, but I’m going to try to do this the right way.” Coming from someone whose entire career mirrors this sediment. She's modeled for two brands and was the face of both and designed two lines of clothes. Yet she shades other actresses that do the same thing.

There's more where these came from but generally she shames women. Like she shamed Paris Hilton for her wardrobe collection calling her a kleptomaniac when Emma herself has a fashion collection of her own. She called Kim Kardashian low culture even though Emma's BFF at the time, Sophie Sumner, got her start on reality TV. I'm not a fan of either of these women and tbh I wouldn't miss them if they went away but why take shots at them? They're fake and come off as really shallow but so has Emma with all her repetitive interviews on her hair, make-up, fashion, etc. 

I'm not going to go deep into her speech or give yay and nay opinion on feminism. But I do want to comment on a few particulars with her speech. 

"I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not." Bossy is not sexism or is it one sided when gender is involved. Guys are called bossy. More so controlling but that also means bossy. Her line makes me think it has something to do with the #banbossy movement. Well should we #bancontrolling because that could discourage young boys? How about we ban nothing? What is this? Nazi Germany?
So what does Emma think about her own bossiness?
From community.livejournal.com May 2010, “Emma Watson told Vanity Fair on the similarities of her and the Hermione Character, “If I’m honest I was her,” says Watson. “I was very keen. I was super-eager to please and be good. And I was always kind of bossy.” Honest? LOL. So much for being good because she’s mischievous. From iheartwatson.net October 2010 “I hope I’m a little bit less serious than Hermione. I’m a bit more mischievous.
But anyway here’s another example. From justjaredjr.buzznet.com November 2010 Emma told Marie Claire magazine, “Playing Hermione just came so naturally; I had a real affinity for her. I felt like I knew exactly who she was. Like me, she’s very loyal and determined, she’s very intelligent, and she has a lot of guy friends, as I do. Her eagerness to please and to have the right answer is definitely like me. I’m a perfectionist, so my bossiness definitely comes out.” Could it be at age 8 other kids were like, “I don't want that Watson girl directing anything because she’s controlling (aka bossy)? BTW in November 2012 she admitted she lied about being just like Hermione. 
From journalgazette.net July 19th, 2011, "Because you bossed Daniel and Rupert around in the movies, did you ever do it accidentally in real life? "Oh, all the time, all the time! Definitely. They’ll tell you that I definitely bossed them around at times. Sometimes, I accidentally found myself directing, giving them direction on a scene that we’re doing together. I’d have to catch myself, because I’m like, that really isn’t my job. I really shouldn’t be telling them that." From iheartwatson.net The Sunday Times: ‘What next in life for Emma Watson’ December 2008, “Spending a whole day getting ready is ridiculous. [Because of] my surrogate mums. I hate wearing an outfit that looks too put-together and perfect. I choose the things I wear myself because I’m such an OCD control freak” I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Emma is probably a really bossy person that always wants her own way. I'm not saying she's a monster but I'm pretty sure she's the anal retentive type.

Then there is the number 18 she brought up at this speech.  "When I was 18...I decided that I was a feminist, and this seemed uncomplicated to me."  How ironic? Isn't it something that she also discovered how famous and wealthy she was but at age 8 understood what gender roles and sexism, etc were? From teenvogue.com June 2013, "It wasn't until she enrolled at Brown University, in 2009, that she began to grasp the enormity of her renown. "It sounds stupid,” she admits, “or completely unbelievable, but that was when I really realized that I was famous." From iheartwatson.net “My dad didn’t tell me how much money I was earning until I was 18." FYI: That first quote above where she claims to be "bit of a feminist and challenging" ... she wasn't even 18 yet. 

Check this post out I did on her being in denial of her fame. There is another ironic moment which reminds me of this one. Emma claimed to have understood the alleged poverty her lawyer parents were experiencing when she was very little before HP but had no clue how famous and wealthy she she was 18. What are the odds of this even being possible where you have more wisdom at 8 than 18? Unless she is bullshiting is. 

Also in this speech she claims to have been sexualized by certain elements of the press. Maybe and maybe not but here are three examples of Emma sexualizing herself.

1.) What’s the first thing she did when her ex-boyfriend’s coke bomb photos started to trend? She hopped on a plane to Antigua with a guy no one knew at the time to be photographed in a bikini sharing a PDA session with him. Up to that point everyone thought she was still with her ex. She did not want to be associated with those photos because people would think she a druggie as well. So she resorted to a bikini and showing affection to a guy in public which she never does. The coke bomb photos were long forgotten after that.

2.) The Bling Character she played. Pole dancing, openly flirting, provocatively dancing, wearing revealing and tight clothes, etc. Ok she’s an actress and she was acting but the reason she took the role was because she wanted to shed that goodie goodie Hermione image. She purposely sexualized herself instead of taking a role where it’s her performance that helped people see her as someone other than Hermione. She sexed herself up and allowed it to be marketed as such to attract male moviegoers.

3.) This little outfit that she wore to a sex club was not a mistake. All the big name directors and producers were in town. This was the time she was trying to be one of Harvey Weinstein girls. This was right after she left Brown the first time. Isn't funny how little miss modesty who once complained WB would not let her show flesh while playing Hermione said she had a hard time showing a bra strap while playing Nikki in Bling Ring but could wear that mini dress to such a place of filth and perversion? She didn't wear it to be comfortable. She wore it to impress big time directors and producers to show them she's not little Hermione so they would cast her in adult roles.

*Bonus: She’s accepted bogus PR driven awards of “sexiest movie star” without even a protest about being sexualized.

In this speech she also alluded that men’s problems to gender roles involving toxic masculinity. She says men should feel more comfortable with feeling vulnerable and being sensitive.  Agree or disagree with that but look who she dates: Matthew Janney, 21, star rugby player at Oxford, recognized for his looks, was voted most eligible bachelor and the best looking player. So while urging men to become less masculine, less stoic etc., she is dating the quintessential alpha male …. your stereotypical good looking jock. And if you remember before he put his twitter to private he had that tweet about another notch in the bed post. He just sounds so vulnerable and sensitive for sure!

I'm quite certain that the popularity, especially among her male contemporaries, of this bright-eyed screen heroine played a key factor when feminists chose her to represent their reputation-challenged cause. They were confident that the huge international army of male HP fans would go into instant white knight mode the moment anyone critiqued, contradicted or, God forbid, talked down to her. I critiqued Emma Watson’s speech, and will not be admonished for it by males who are into junior-level sword and sorcery fiction.

Then she brought up equal pay. "I am from Britain and think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts." Peculiarly enough Emma Watson and Rupert Grint both played secondary leads in the Harry Potter franchise but Emma was paid double the money. She was also given a lot of lines that were Ron's from the books. Does she think she should have received what Radcliffe was paid even though the title of the movie is the name of his character which made him the lead and the star of all the films?

Is Emma Watson really on the same level as Malala Yousafzai or Ayaan Hirsi Ali when it comes to fighting for women's rights and equality? We all should be offended that the U.N picked an attractive and wealthy celebrity who never faced oppression or inequality her entire life. Emma is part of the 1% club. Life even before fame was handed to her on a silver platter since she was born into a middle class family with lawyers for parents. Now she makes more in one year than most people will make their entire lives. Listening to her speak about pay equality is a like listening to a fish complain there's not enough water. She's not qualified nor credible for this position. 

This is why I loathe celebrity culture and celebrity worship because when any celebrity makes a politically correct speech they're instantaneously branded a hero or a champion of the cause without actually getting their hands dirty. This is a good example of the power of media when they use hype and sensationalism. They could make some people believe crap sandwiches taste good. 

don't really believe Emma's heart is in this. I say that because look at her past charities. People Tree was supposed to be really important to her but she let it got to waste side for Burberry and Lancome. She was supposed to be this huge supporter of Camfed but only used it to say how much she cares about girls education. What this feels like to me is someone who is desperate to stay relevant because her acting career is on life support. And with Victoria Beckham just added to the U.N ambassador to women I don't think Emma's appointment was unique. Her image is squeaky clean and she played Hermione so she's the perfect mascot for the U.N to target her age bracket. 

One last thing: How can the United Nations preach equality and rights when their nation members allow so much inequality and brutality to happen to women? Here's some examples: In Saudi Arabia a woman cannot leave her home without a male family member. If she's caught alone she could be arrested. Also women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive. In Pakistan Muslim women can have acid thrown in their face for adultery and even stoned to death. In some areas even if they just show their face from beneath their veil or burqaJust recently in Iran a few women were sentenced to 6 months in jail and 91 lashes for dancing in a youtube video to Pharrell's 'Happy'. In Yemen women are subject to honor killings if they disobey or bring shame to their families. In Canada a few years ago there was this Muslim father and brother who killed their daughters/sisters for becoming too westernized. You want to see real patriarchy I suggest you gto those places. However here is the U.N ignoring all that to focus on feminism in first world nations. 

Here's my last post on her 4chan nude threats

The Emma Watson 4Chan Nude Leak Threat Was A Marketing Ploy

Source #1
From theblemish.com Sep 2014
A couple days ago, news spread across the web that, after Emma Watson’s UN speech on feminism, the hacker posting on 4Chan threatened to release her nude photos. A website titled Emma You Are Next popped up on the web promising to show that this “feminist bitch is as much of a whore as any woman.” Much outrage was had because a direct threat over a speech about humanity was a huge overreaction which bordered on insane.
Now it’s come to light that this was a marketing ploy by Rantic Marketing. Digging into Apache server logs, internet sleuths discovered that the site in question belonged to Rantic Marketing, a corporation specializing in social media marketing who've worked with NASA, EA, Steam, Rockstar, and, most telling, FoxWeekly. Why is that important? Because FoxWeekly was the first outlet to report on the story. Check out the timeline here.
In either case, it doesn't matter because Rantic has admitted it made the whole thing up. As of now, the Emma You Are Next website leads to Rantic.com which is calling for the shuttering of 4chan. They’ve posted this message.
”We have been hired by celebrity publicists to bring this disgusting issue to attention. The recent 4chan celebrity nude leaks in past 2 months have been an invasion of privacy and is also clear indication that the internet NEEDS to be censored. Every Facebook like, share & Twitter mention will count as a social signature — and will be step closer to shutting down www.4chan.org. ”

From mashable.com Sep 2014

The nude photo leak surrounding Emma Watson threatened earlier this week turned out to be a viral marketing stunt by an organization known as Rantic Marketing to shut down the website 4chan. The website surrounding the false leaks, EmmaYouAreNext.com, threatened to release nude photographs of the 24-year-old actress on Saturday at 12 a.m. ET, but the website which has been counting down the minutes included a note on Tuesday indicating an earlier launch.

By midnight Wednesday, Watson’s face and the countdown clock had been replaced on the website, which now pushes visitors to Rantic Marketing’s own homepage, which includes an open letter to President Barack Obama that claims celebrity publicists hired the company to popularize a call for internet censorship and the end of 4chan.

Initially, the anonymous, forum-based website 4chan was fingered for the threats, after Watson delivered a well-received speech at the United Nations on Saturday. 4chan has previously been the center of previous celebrity photo hacks.

A previous version of Rantic’s website claimed to have worked with such organizations as McDonalds and Rockstar Games, it now displays a campaign to shut down 4chan, including the letter to Obama.

The timing with this right after her U.N Speech was suspect. It was the perfect ploy to signal boost her speech to even more people who were not aware of it. They attempted to kill two birds with one stone but were caught by Internet sleuths. 

I don't imagine Hollywood throwing one of their own under the bus like this. It's something I believe her agent Luke Windsor would be on board with. It makes Emma look like a victim and it makes her speech relevant. They just got caught being very disingenuous like the website they want to shut down. Like I said in an ask on my tumblr, "If someone actually had real nudes of Emma they would be out and they would not leak them for free." 

I have an issue with their letter of which one part states, "The recent 4chan celebrity nude leaks in past 2 months have been an invasion of privacy and is also clear indication that the Internet NEEDS to be censored." I do believe in privacy rights but I am against censorship because once you start going down that path you'll never stop because people will find more things to regulate, ban or control. What I think they should do is prosecute to the fullest extent of the law and make the punishment severe enough that it will deter people. And if celebrities want to talk about privacy maybe they should think about the people's public records, phone numbers, addresses and other information that is easily accessible on the Internet of which they are lucky to be privileged enough not to have to worry about. 

Here's my new post on her speech

Jennifer Lawrence bitch slaps Emma Watson at Dior event

At a Dior even this past week in Paris during fashion week Emma and Jennifer posed for a photo together and Katniss let Hermione know what is up and where she can stick that wand.

Ok just kidding and it was apparently playful but Jennifer just did what many people wish they could do except when Emma's in full sentence with one of her whines or slut shaming moments.

But anyway did you hear the news? No not the news Emma was being investigated for having an illegal maid in the UK. Which by the way was hardly covered by the entertainment press of the act she cancelled her attendance at a David Cameron event for a holiday to Morocco. It's the news that Emma is going to be an Ambassador to women for the United Nations.

From snitchseeker.com July 2014, ""Being asked to serve as UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling. The chance to make a real difference is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly. Women’s rights are something so inextricably linked with who I am, so deeply personal and rooted in my life that I can’t imagine an opportunity more exciting. I still have so much to learn, but as I progress I hope to bring more of my individual knowledge, experience and awareness to this role,” said Ms. Watson

Then she posted this clearly photo shopped picture of herself for UN women (the one on the right) where her lips, nose and eyes which including shrinking her cheeks was manipulated if you look at the picture on the left.

Thanks to  for comparison photo

The criteria for Messengers of Peace and Goodwill Ambassadors as posted at web.undp.org

"The role of Messengers of Peace and Goodwill Ambassadors is to engage in public advocacy; in fundraising where authorized and in accordance with the applicable regulations, rules, policies and procedures of the designating UN Agency, Office, Fund or Programme; and in public awareness activities. They are encouraged to participate in United Nations events and to visit United Nations operations in the field. Every Messenger of Peace and Goodwill Ambassador is expected to participate in a minimum of three activities or events every year. The Messengers of Peace and Goodwill Ambassadors are encouraged to develop an area of special focus, which would strengthen their advocacy role. This would provide the possibility of making them a ‘go-to’ person, who can speak authoritatively on a particular issue."

Thanks to  for UN link info above

OK soo....

I don't get this move. I certainly don't think *giggling* ... that the U.N had this meeting and was brain storming as to who they could get as another ambassador to women and some guy from Bangladesh popped out of his chair and screamed, "Emma Watson" after hours of discussion. So yeah I totally question that Emma was really asked. How many times has the truth eventually came out with things like this? It never ends up being how she initially describes it. This reeks of Emma's people inquiring about a role and they were like "Sure why not" because she does have a squeaky yet fake and PR manipulated clean image and the U.N uses celebrities from time to time. Plus the maid story will really be forgotten now. ;)

Why Emma Watson? She is neither qualified or would be an ideal candidate because she's not very charismatic nor does she have the personality for it. I can't imagine her giving speeches. I can see a lot of scripted PSA videos to raise awareness. Everything is going to be scripted for her. That's if she speaks on camera. I could see her visiting places with a photographer or camera crew and then there would be some quote printed later that they attribute to Emma but it's not her words. IMO People Tree was exactly like that. You could tell that's how it was set up because in her People Tree videos she was not as articulate and knowledgeable like she seemed in magazines.

And what experience and what knowledge does she have that she is claiming? She's a girl born into a middle class white family with lawyers for parents and later went on to be famous for acting while dabbling in fashion becoming the face of two brands and then ended up becoming a millionaire. How can she possibly relate or understand the struggles of any woman when she's be sheltered and handed things her whole life because of her family and looks? Her personal empowerment came by chance/luck and not from an uphill battle. How can a woman from a 3rd world country look at Emma and see hope in her when all she would recognize is the color of Emma's skin, status in the world and Emma's first world privilege?

I just see her as a figure head for a cause (whatever that is) but not an actual person with a cause. That's what People Tree ended up being so this kind of stuff is right up her alley. She has no problem with saying she's for something when she's not because she just wants attention. If you followed her People Tree collaboration it didn't turn out to well in the end because she found high fashion more lucrative. But she loves the praise but not the duty. She loves the recognition but never gets her hands dirty. She puts her name on it as ownership but there's no passion behind it. I don't see this UN gig to be any different.

Here's a name they should have used... Malala Yousafzai. You know the Pakistani girl that defied the odds after being shot in the head by the Taliban because she wanted an education.

You do know this will make her ego grow even bigger? Prepare for even more pretentious quotes and delusions of grandeur from her. I've never seen a more hyped and lauded actress get so much attention for doing so little. It's baffling. And I wonder how many events she will drop because of other "commitments" like she did with Camfed? Time will tell.

Or being able to avoid the annoying arriving and departing procedures at airports by being whisked through by airport security personnel. Or being accommodated (scroll to bottom for story) at her college graduation by pushing out a family who was there to watch their child who actually attended school on campus graduate  Or having to clean her place because she has a maid  and probably other assistants that do her cooking and run errands for her. Or the fashion, electronics, etc freebies just so people see her with them and the expensive gift bags given at events and award shows that sometimes cost more than people make a year. Etc, etc and etc left out much but whatever you get it…..

Yet she's an advocate for "gender equality" and "woman empowerment". I'd say one example of gender equality consists of you holding your own umbrella and woman empowerment would be not accepting bogus and laughable awards like "sexist movie star" like she has because a women shouldn't have to sell sex (like she has) to be successful.

Btw Emma finally has an instagram account and let me remind you what she said at the Cannes last year: "How does the Internet alter the way we define ourselves?It’s amazing how self-aware we’re becoming, as a result of constantly posting images on Facebook and Instagram or whatever else. There is so much branding of ourselves, it’s amazing. And I think that it’s a shame that some of that naivete, or just blissfully unaware stage, is shortened over time.”

Meanwhile she has a professional facebook that posts pictures and she uses twitter. Now she has a instagram. Btw her fans did find her personal FB which was deleted.

Emma Watson faces probe over maid 'working illegally in Britain'

From dailymail.co.uk June 30th, 2014, "They could call it Harry Potter and the Mystery of the American Housekeeper. The Home Office is probing whether actress Emma Watson’s maid has been working illegally at the star’s £2m north London home.

Officials are looking into claims that the housekeeper only had a tourist visa, which would bar her as a foreigner from working here.The woman was stopped by UK immigration staff who questioned how she could pay for her stay here, it was claimed. Employers who breach the rules by hiring foreign staff illegally can face a fine of up to £10,000.

Watson, 24, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, first started using the maid’s services in her New York apartment last year. But the woman allegedly made trips to London and was paid to help out at the star’s three-storey Georgian terraced house in Islington, it was claimed. Between September last year and February this year, she is said to have spent a total of three months in the UK. It was on one of her trips to London that UK Border Agency staff allegedly questioned her about her ability to pay for her stay. A source at the Home Office said: ‘An allegation has been received and processed and has been allocated for further action.’

Watson, worth £30million, has been living in the States where she recently obtained an English literature degree from Brown University in Rhode Island. But she is currently believed to be in London to attend David Cameron’s ‘Cool Britannia’ party in Downing Street tonight. Mr Cameron’s former immigration minister Mark Harper resigned earlier this year when it emerged his Colombian cleaner was in the country unlawfully. Records showed the cleaner received at least £2,000 from Mr Harper’s Westminster expenses before second home allowances were tightened up.

And in 2009, it emerged how Labour’s Attorney General Baroness Scotland had employed her Tongan housekeeper in breach of the rules – which her own department had drawn up. Baroness Scotland was fined £5,000 because she had failed to keep copies of her housekeeper’s papers.

Employers can avoid being prosecuted or fined a civil penalty if they can show they did everything possible to check the immigration status of a worker.

Watson, who starred in all the Harry Potter films from the age of nine, graduated last month from Brown University. She made headlines after it emerged the ‘friend’ who accompanied her at the ceremony was actually an armed guard, carrying a gun beneath her gown. The high-security was a marked contrast with her stated aim of having a ‘normal’ experience as a student at the prestigious US college.

Watson, who is dating rugby-playing Oxford student Matthew Janney, has often sought to play down her celebrity status. Last night the Home Office declined to say anything, and Watson’s spokesman did not respond to requests for comment."

You know I could post quote after quote from her through the years (especially the last five) where she paints this picture she is a normal girl, a feminist even, and one that knows her way around the kitchen even though she joked about ruining meals and even mishaps washing her clothes. Meanwhile she has a maid. She basically hired a female slave to literally do her dirty work. I bet she didn't want to break a nail. She probably also has a cook that cuts her meat, back scratcher and someone that comes over to water her plants while she's out by the pool.

For what might I ask would she need a maid? It's not like she's been super busy filming all these movies or that she actually attended Brown University. She stopped that after 2010. Nor has she filmed movies at great lengths like HP franchise. She left school to film Perks, TBR and Noah. And when she continued she did online classes. She could have been like regular women who juggle work, school and maintaining a house or at least clean up after themselves which the latter is not a task. But be that as it may since she does not have regular 9 to 5 job and most of her time is leisure, how couldn't she take online classes, wash her clothes, make her bed, run the sweeper and clean the toilet at the same time? Maybe she could have used a maid here?

But is this really any surprise about a celebrity that preaches about charity and attached herself to causes like People Tree but opted to wear high end fashion to promote all the biggest designers in and out of England because as she admitted once, "Fair trade clothing is ugly and boring?" It's no surprise to me because this is the same celebrity that loves to give herself props for her charity work she did during Hurricane Sandy almost two years after the fact and in a few publications. People who generally want to help others don't go screaming what they did on the mountain. And don't get me started on her CamFed comments and those self portraits.

So no, I wont go the usual route posting hypocritical statements from her that contradict the very essence of having a maid because her fans will only make excuses for her. I'm sure right now they'll lay it on thick saying she was filming all these movies, going to school and make up other things she was doing.

Like her ex-boyfriends alleged coke bomb photos she covered up with her PDA moment with new boytoy while wearing a bikini on a beach, don't be surprised to expect someone similar here. That's how she roles. Emma apparently has pulled out of David Cameron's 'Cool Britannia' party at Downing Street and was seen at an airport so only time will tell.

Guillermo del Toro drops out of directing Emma Watson in Beauty and the Beast

From blogs.indiewire.com June 2014, "“The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” star Emma Watson is probably feeling a lot like she looks in the above photo: annoyed with a touch of exasperated, “c’mon, really?” Because her director-to-be, Guillermo del Toro, has dropped out of helming “Beauty & The Beast.” Did the recent announcement of Disney’s live-action reimagining of the project kill it, you ask? Nope, Warner Bros. is still going ahead with the project, they’ll just have to do it with a new director. Why did del Toro drop out? Why does he drop out of half the projects he’s attached to direct? Because like folks like Ridley Scott or Leonardo DiCaprio, del Toro tends to over-commit to projects that run long and then he realizes he’ll never be able to make the 16,000 projects he had in development (remember his “Frankenstein” movie at Universal that didn’t go anywhere for a random, off-the-top-of-my-head example?)."

^^^ Seems like excuses why this film can't be made. This film has been in the works since late 2011 with Emma's name unofficially attached. It was only until she began talking about it in 2012 that it became official.

Del Toro said this last summer: From mtv.com July 2013, "The upcoming project of del Toro’s that is sure to grab a lot of attention is his retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," which currently has Emma Watson attached to it. The director said that she is, in fact, still involved and that they’re close to casting a monstrous co-star for her. " ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ we’re waiting to close on the Beast. We are weeks away from getting who plays the Beast," del Toro said. "We’re talking to the makeup effects guys who are going to render the Beast. We’re going to do a solid, fantastic makeup job. We’re going to fuse digital and makeup in a way that I think is quite cutting edge."

They never cast the beast or any other actors. If they were so close on this film what the hell happened?

Emma said this back in January: From mtv.com Jan 2014, "She's been hoping for "Beauty & the Beast" to finally get made. The fairytale project has been in development with director Guillermo del Toro for so long, who knows if we'll ever see it. "I hope so," Watson said about the project's prospects. "[Del Toro] always has so many things he's working on at once, so we're still putting it together. I hope so."

She said this in 2012: From hypable.com June 2012, "Q: What’s happening with Beauty and the Beast? A: Guillermo del Toro, the director, has just finished editing his last film and is working on the script and pre-production for Beauty and the Beast.

Emma said in AUGUST OF 2012: From celebitchy.com August 2012,  "I’m doing a film with Guillermo [del Toro] next summer (2013), and I went to him and said Warner Brothers have given me the script for ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ but the only way I’d really want to do it is if you did it. And then miraculously he said, ‘Oh, funnily enough ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is my favorite fairy tale, I can’t let anyone else do this, I’ll start putting a team together."

But of course in Emma fashion she contradicts herself because she goes from WB gave her a script to Del Toro working on one: From mtv.com/news Sept 2012, "We [del Toro and I] met a week or two ago, and we started working on the script, and it's going to go next summer. It's so funny, obviously I've been doing a lot of other work, and I was nervous. I was like, 'Is this going to go away?' And Guillermo is so psyched about it, and he's like been thinking about it so much." "He bought the book," Watson continued, referencing the director's infamous sketchbooks in which he logs his ideas. "I was like, 'Ah, this is killing me.' I'm very excited."

My original post on BATB by clicking here

Those last two quotes I provided is such bullshit from her. You can tell she is lying. The first quote she claims it's his favorite story but the second one she said he had to go buy the book? Why would you have to go buy a book about a story that has been your favorite? BATB was around before Del Toro was born so at some point he would have already had a copy (since it was his "favorite story") and therefore would know it really well. And then she says WB gave her a script but then later states Del Toro is working on one? Huh? Makes no sense. Which is it? Then she implies she's has some clout with helping write the script. Well we now see how that all ended up.

It's also been reported Del Toro is going to stay on as a producer and that Emma is still attached to the role. I could see Del Toro completely leaving the project to focus on his other movies. I wonder if she will stay on board or drop out? She's dropped Del Toro's name a few times as part of her director wish list. She's been in this mindset of working with only big name directors with major awards or at least well respected ones. She could work with Spielberg and her acting will still be moderate to poor. I say this because this reminds me of her role in YVIMH with how the director left (David Yates) and another one signed on. Then Emma dropped out and another actress signed on. Then that actress dropped out and Emma signed back on. Then the new director dropped out and then Emma dropped out again. You can read that post by clicking here.

If Del Toro was excited as Emma states this movie would have been made by now. It would have been his priority to work with the greatest actress of the 21 century (lol) Emma "eye brows" Watson. If she was excited she would have left college like she did for Perks and TBR to film it.

For a so called in demand movie actress isn't it something how the two lead roles she has been offered post HP could never get going? Meanwhile Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence are tearing up the box office and winning/nominated for major awards. While her PR team has to resort to fan fiction moves like this and releasing old magazine shots to keep her relevant. Just saying.
