"I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me. That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else."
The truth is that I’m genuinely a shy, socially awkward, introverted person. At a big party, I’m like Bambi in the headlights. I feel a pressure when I’m meeting new people because I’m aware of their expectations.That makes socializing difficult.

"I know when to put the armour on and I’m usually pretty good at it. But underneath that armour, there isn’t a special jab that I’m given because I’m famous or I’ve earned a lot of money. Like every other human being, I’m trying to figure out … life."

"I remember saying to myself, ‘If I pull this off, if all three of them actually turn out to be happening, people are giving me proper chance.’ I mean, I’d really prepared myself to come up against alot of prejudice - you know, not being considered a real actress because I’d been part of this big blockbuster franchise" - Emma Watson on casting in movies by Sofia Copolla, Darren Aronofsky, and Guillermo del Toro [GQ UK Oct 2013].

“It sounds like a cliché but I also learnt that you’re not going to fall for the right person until you really love yourself and feel good about how you are. Well, that was revelatory to me. But it’s a journey and the sad thing is you only learn from experience, so as much as someone can tell you things, you have to go out there and make your own mistakes in order to learn.”
