From celebrities.ninemsn.comAugust 2012, “Emma Watson is buckling under the weight of a first world problem— she’s too popular for her own good. The actress revealed her woes in an interview with T, The New York Times’ style lift-out, which also features a blown-up face shot of Emma on the cover. "If I went somewhere busy, I wouldn’t last very long. I can’t go to a museum, I’ll last 10 or 15 minutes in a museum," she sobbed. "The problem is that when one person asks for a photograph, then someone sees a flash go off, then everyone else sort of …it’s sort of like a domino effect. "And then very quickly the situation starts to get out of control to a point where I can’t manage it on my own," said the 22-year-old. The thing is, Emma, when you’ve appeared in seven Harry Potter films and a bunch of other successful flicks, regularly lend your face to magazine covers and advertisements and try to become a famous actress, chances are you’ll probably become, err, a famous actress!" AWESOME because I've said this for far too long
Few comments from this website
While I do like Emma I think she is exaggerating a bit about how much media attention she gets. Yes, she is fairly famous but in retrospect to other celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton etc she is hardly photographed. Emma is making it seem like she's the most photographed celebrity when I actually think she keeps her personal life out of the tabloids pretty well considering her level of success. She is not to famous to go out in public. Michael Jackson was too famous to go out in public and Princess Diana was. They couldn't walk a step in public without paps and fans mobbing them. Emma doesn't get that.
Get over Yourself lovey... You made your bed so lie in it !!! You sound like a 10 year old winging about their play lunch that everyone wants !!
It's difficult because on one side you feel sorry for them but then you think about how much money she has at such a young age. If she quit acting tomorrow she would still have a wonderful life with all of the finest things...and she is only an actor. Just this week we have seen someone like Julian Assange who has put his life on the line for something he truly believes will advance the human race, and what does he get for it? Not fame, not money, but the threat of extradition to the US for espionage; a trial; definitely jail time and can be put to death! There are people in Hollywood who have committed far greater crimes than Assange and get paid millions of dollars to do it. I just struggle to feel too sorry for these people. Her lavish lifestyle should more than compensate for her loss of public anonymity, that’s the trade off right?....Just saying...you know?
The tragedy of being beautiful and filthy rich. sigh.
Echee says: Well there are people in Africa that are not able to feed their stomachs. This is from precursor of the museum talk in the actual interview that lead to the above quote. From NYT t-magazine interview August 2012, "I was also touched by Watson’s tales of coming to realize the horrific extent of her face recognition as a child star. She told me that up until she was 15 or 16 she still took the bus from Oxford to London, determined to be just an ordinary girl — this was her strange form of rebellion — but that it became too much when everyone on the bus was either talking about or at her." Then it goes straight into that comment about museums. It was her rebellion? She said she never felt the need to rebel. You are wrong, sir! From ctv.ca November 2010, "I do things in my own way, but I've never felt any need to rebel. To be honest I had to much freedom." See I told you. Don't write things you know nothing about. From wwd.com Nov 2010, Fashion was my rebellion.” Aww shit I am confused again. Sorry sir for my sanctimonious scolding. But I must continue. The show must go on! <-- Look exclamation points. Inside joke from the comment section.
Can't ride the bus, eh? At 15 or 16 you had a rough experience, eh? Well maybe or maybe not (click link below). I honestly can't tell you or even come to a conclusion to the real truth if it's now or then. She has too many conflicting stories. Why now? The point being? I hate to post these two quotes again but it goes with her new story. From splashnewsonline.com Dec 2010 "The 20-year-old Harry Potter actress told British newspaper Metro: "The funny thing is people look at me and go: ‘Is that the girl from Harry Potter?’ And then they shake their heads and say: ‘No, it can’t be, she’s on public transport.’ And I’m sat there secretly thinking: ‘Ha Ha that’s funny. The last quote was after Burberry and at the end of Potter. This was reworded quote from two years earlier. Why she repeats it I don't know. From makeushot.commakeushot.com Dec 2008, "I have a more normal life than people expect. When I take public transport, people are like, ‘That girl looks like the girl from ‘Harry Potter,’ but it can’t be her on the train’. I get stopped by people, but that’s fine." Here is what she said last year about fame. She seemed pretty cool with it. So what the fuck is she whining about? From iheartwatson.net Nov 2011, "So many people must wish they were in his position and think that he has the best life, but actually… there are prices you pay. Don’t interpret that from my perspective; it’s not so bad for me. I’m not in Rob’s (Pattison) position, I don’t have people screaming and crying and clawing at me. I’m so grateful for that.” Above she says, "I went somewhere busy, I wouldn’t last very long. I can’t go to a museum, I’ll last 10 or 15 minutes in a museum." I am having that confused moment again. Wait, maybe it's her not me? I think she was hit with the obliviate curse. You can read more of her quotes on fame below (of which she flips and flop on this subject) in links I provide from past posts of mine. Last year she said this. From fashion.telegraph.co.uk Jan 2012 "Someone asked me why I accepted this job, as I wanted to stand in the shadows. Actually, I gave up the idea that I could become anonymous again!" So what is she bitching about if she gave up the idea of being anonymous? She understand she never can if she continues being a famous actress.
Why do celebrities feel the need to whine about their lives when what they have is so much more than the rest of us no matter if you are working a blue collar job struggling or trying to survive in some mud hut. She works 15 weeks a year on a movie, banks millions and the rest is her leisure time while the rest of us are stuck with the daily grind of 365 days a year. That's not including the bank she makes from the likes of Burberry and Lancome. Get your head out of your ass Herwhinie Granger. Must I explain this any further. Sure there are annoyances I take it. I'm not even famous but I can comprehend certain moments in my head that would bother me. But from where I am sitting, even though I would never want to be famous, the pluses out weigh the minuses. Those moments that would bother me would make me realize how fucking rich and easy my life truly is. I'd say, "Well it sucks sometimes when I just want to eat a burger at my favorite restaurant but I got it made so I'll send one of my slaves out for the burger before I go on my tenth exotic vacation this year." I'm not going to go to magazines whining about it. Hmm millions of dollars boo hoo or unemployment line yay? I don't think those people looking for a job are going to feel sorry for me. That's how I see it. No one wants to hear this kind of stuff. What does this have to do with your up coming movies or projects? I thought she was a private person anyway? Isn't this private information? Is there anyone in Emma's camp that can sit her down and explain to her the reality of her situation, please? Or is she that dense or difficult? You know how she at least has a choice about her life when others are stuck in theres. Take the "slums of Bangledesh" for instance.
Emma is the one that made her name much bigger with attaching herself to international brands such as Burrberry and Lancome. Not everyone is a Potter fan. She expanded her fan base outside of acting. Not everyone watches movies. Wants anonymity and normacly and then signs huge modeling contracts. What the fuck is up with that? Then we have the countless magazines she's done over the years that spread out all over the world promoting herself more than the films. College was supposed to take care of this but she chose more fame, money and attention. That's why she left Brown and Worcester. Now she lives in America and is trying to become a big name there. Oh my, lol. What a maroon. No one is forcing her to stay in the spotlight. She has the money to walk away from it all to live a normal life. In time she will be forgotten like so many other young stars that never hit it big after their initial success. I've never heard anyone with as much as she has find something to whine about. She's old enough to make big girl decisions. Either quit yer bitching and deal with your choice you made or get the hell out of the business and take your little wand to.
Check this out lettersofnote.com. This letter should be re-written and sent to Emma Watson. Because like this letter points out Emma too wanted to be an actress at a young age. What are her interviews going to be like 5 years from now. I can only imagine. This is either her craving for an out pouring of sympathy like the attention whore she is or sometime in the near future she will have a Britney Spears breakdown.
From thesun.co.uk (comments to their article on her whining about fame)
Emma Watson - People like you really make me sick. do you really think you are? You were a little actress in a film and now you think the world revolves around your feet..... REALITY CHECK - You're not all that. You decided to go into acting. I don't suppose for one minute you were dragged kicking and screaming. I suggest now HP is over, you go and get a life.
If Prince William managed it, you can luv !!!
At what point am I suppose to shed a tear and say "oh poor you". If you don't want the fame/attention (not to mention the millions), then get out of the biz. I cannot stand when celebrities start to whine about how they can't go anywhere etc because they are so famous/popular. Guess what? That's the price you pay for being an entertainer - it goes with the job I'm sorry to say so just stop the complaining and suck it up OR get out of the business.
the girl needs a reality check when you take the money for what you do, you have to expect the public will want a piece of you im sure with $70 million you can live with it im sure
She has the personality of a lampost, been pampered to much at a young age, be thankful for what you have.
Tell you what , Emma, give me half your money. It might make things much better for both of us.
God!!! actors,sport stars,models etc are a weird bunch.They do everything bar murder to become rich and famous and when they do they bitch about it.With regard to this stuck up little madam my all time fav Harry Potter movie line was when Snape called her "an insufferable little know it all"With regard to fame if your happy enough to take the money and the lavish lifestyle then take the baggage that comes with it.If you don't like the rules of the game don't step onto the bloody field
I don't think i'd spot her in public in a million years, apart from being in harry potter which i have never seen what else has she done or is she only mobbed by children?
Is it really that everytime she opens her mouth she says something annoying, or is it just that the annoying things are the only ones that hit the news. Either way, if she stopped saying stupid things, they'd stop appearing!
I'm amazed she can manage to squeeze that big head of hers through the front door to go out in the first place!! Get over yourself luv, personally I could be standing next to her and wouldn't notice!! What a pretentious little girl!!!
she always seems to come across as a toffy nosed cow there are more famous people than her who have lives and go out in public
She complains about being famous , really ? How can being rich , famous , anything at the snap of your fingers be a burden ?
Emma doesn't know anonymity or total freedom (post from a week ago)
