Two years prior she said something completely different. If you have this dream or an aspiration like acting in this instance shouldn't it be the same all the time if you were speaking in past tense? From popsugar.co.uk Feb 2009, "On her background: "I wasn’t one of those girls who always dreamed of being an actress. I went to a normal school and then these film auditioners turned up when I was nine. Then I just fell into this whirlwind. I had lots of times when I thought: 'Woah, woah, hang on – I’m not completely sure about this.' I didn’t come from a background of films. I didn’t even really ever watch films. The fact is, my parents weren’t into that stuff, and neither was I." At the end of 2008 she says this. From glamourvanity.com Dec 2008, "It’s weird because I’ve always felt uncertain that acting is what I wanted to do, especially compared to Dan [Radcliffe] and Rupert [Grint]. I think that’s because I was nine years old when I was given the part without even going to acting school. I didn’t know I wanted to be an actress, they just found me out of nowhere. So it’s taken me a little while to work out that this was what I wanted to do – well, for now," From iheartwatson.net HelloMagazine.com: July 2011, "I got to be funny, which was very exciting for me. The budget was miniscule and there wasn’t a single special effect. It made me sure for the first time that acting is really what I want to do." Perks made you realize you finally wanted to be an actress? Well what about that BBC movie from 2007 called Ballet Shoes? From glamourvanity.com 2007, “I was all set to go back to school after finishing Harry Potter [and the Order of the Phoenix] but couldn’t resist Ballet Shoes. I really loved it.” “I always had concerns that I was Hermione because I looked like a Hermione – but what else did I bring? So this was the test. And it worked. Ballet Shoes was a small production, but it gave me the confidence to think I could actually have a career as an actress after the Harry Potter films. That I wouldn’t just always be Hermione.” Really Emma? Really you never wanted to be an actress or even gave it a thought and you are not sure?
Emma? From ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com June 2007, "What did you dream of when you were a child? Becoming an actress." <----- huh? Also 2007 like the last quote above she did an interview for the Telegraph. It was her first one outside of Potter. She talk about various things. One of which was her BBC movie Balllet shoes. It again is a different tone from the last quote but is similar to the first most recent one in 2011 but a complete flip flop from 2009 and 2008 quotes above. From telegraph.co.uk July 2007, "It's the first time I've been anything but Hermione. Pauline is headstrong, so in that way she is quite like Hermione, but she is not academic. In fact, she actually reminds me of myself as a child, much more than Hermione does. Pauline is utterly obsessed with being an actress and I was just like that when I was younger. I dreamt of it. (hence contradiction from above) I practised speeches in front of mirrors. Whenever there was a part at school, I went for it. I was probably a bit of a show-off in the sense that any chance to get up and be seen, I did it. (Well that explains why she is such an attention seeker and over exposes herself all the time with the look at, look at me, look at me via the media and all other forms where she get people's attention), I was such a drama queen. I used to wail and moan and cry, and little things were blown up into being big things. I don't know how my parents stood it, really. I've grown up a bit. I've had to" She went on in this interview to say this, "I actually really want to be an actress, a proper actress who makes it her career." I'm always expecting to be found out and I thought, " If I'm no good, now is the time to find out." and here is another quote that contradicts again, from iheartwatson.net Empire Magazine: ‘Harry Potter: The Questionnaire, August 2011 "I guess just not being at school anymore and that acting became a big part of my life, when it wasn’t before.” From iheartwatson.net July 2009, "First and foremost I’m an actress and that’s my focus, but it’s always nice to do something different, you know? It’s nice to have a change and it was that for me." This girls brain goes in every which direction but straight. But there is one more. From telegraph.co.uk Dec 2007, "I can relate to Pauline’s ambition," says Watson. "She’d sell her soul to be an actress. And I did always want to be an actress and I think I do still." She'd sell her soul to be an actress. Now that's dedication. Will she ever stick to one story? From usmagazine.com September 2012, "Emma also offered a little insight on her new role in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, saying it was the realisation she needed that acting is the right career for her - despite 10 years of Potter life. She continued: ‘Making this movie was so pivotal for me because I realised I do really want to be an actress, which wasn’t something I fully knew, since Harry Potter was such a singular experience." <----- WTF Emma, Stop, just stop, you're give me a migraine.
From zambotimes.com July 30th, 2011, "Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson was born in Paris, France. She move to Oxforshire, England with her siblings after her parents divorced. From the age of six, Emma knew that she wanted to be an actress and, for a number of years, she trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts, a part-time theatre school where she studied singing, dancing and acting." <--- acting school she said she never attended, lol
Echee says: Emma said recently, "I have spent more of my life being someone else than I have being myself," she continues, adding: "I've always had a strong sense of who I am and what I want, but I do need to spend more time figuring that out." And in a web article a journalist wrote, "Hmm. Emma Watson feels she's lived her life as someone other than herself yet at the same time, she's always had "a strong sense" of who she is? Right. Not only is this utterly ridiculous woman an insufferable bore, she obviously flunked Logic 101 at Brown University." Ok, we could use this as someone who does not know who she is, what she wants or what she believes in or as I've shown repeatedly on my blog this is Emma being Emma changing her stories to fit whatever is going on with her career at the time. You could say she is playing the fame game. The other example that is one my blog is where Emma said one year when she's out in public she forgets she's famous, the next year she said she can't ride the bus because she's famous and then the following she said she finds it funny that no one recognizes her when she rides public transport. Two years later in 2010 she repeated the same thing but it was not the same quote word for word and she's grown way more famous in that time span.
I have loads of these examples and it's not like changing your mind on what you are going to eat or wear. It's changing your story from what you said before and it's more complicated than changing how you feel. You know what I think. It's not about Emma not knowing what she wants. It's Emma playing the fame game. It's either that or she has a hard time keeping up with her own deceptions to keep track of what she's said prior. I completely and utterly question if anything she says is true and how she really feels. There is just to much contradiction, hypocrisy and deception from her not to the question that.
UPDATE (STILL LYING): From gq-magazine.co.uk May 2013, “‘How have your ambitions changed since you became successful?, “I think when I was younger I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to act, so I played around with a few different ideas. I wasn’t sure whether I might want to write or whether I might want to do something in fashion. I wasn’t really focused in the same way that Dan was from the get go. His parents [worked in the industry], he went to the theatre, he watched films, he was absolutely set from the beginning: “I’m going to be an actor. I’d always enjoyed acting in school plays, but that just wasn’t an ambition that I really thought about.’”
UPDATE: (STILL LYING) From justjared.com Sep 2012, "I never wanted any of the things that a lot of the people who go into this industry want […] I never wanted to be famous. My parents never wanted this for me. I never even wanted this until a year ago,” Emma said in a quote provided exclusively to JustJared.com. “I was so overwhelmed by the way that people responded to the idea that this might not be what I want to do [something Watson said publicly while promoting the seventh Harry Potter film], but I hope people will respect my choice more now that I really took time to consider it, and what it really means. Now that I’ve made my decision, I’m serious about mastering my craft and really doing things that I genuinely believe are important.”
*Her post Potter career has not been stellar so why not spin it like you never wanted to act so people will think you're now putting effort into it. In a few years when it's not any better and maybe even worse she'll have contradicting quote. Trust me I've been covering her for three years. This sort of thing happens a lot.
