Emma Watson “Ellen DeGeneres Show” Video: Watch “Beauty And The Beast” Interview
Emma Watson appears on Friday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to promote her new film, Beauty and the Beast. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the world premiere of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast was held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on Thursday night in anticipation of the film’s official release on March 17. In the movie, a live-action adaptation of the animated classic, Watson stars as Belle, a young woman who is taken prisoner by the beast. Speaking of the role of a lifetime, Watson expresses, “Oh my god, if you had told me when I was 5, which is probably around the age I was watching [Beauty and the Beast] on repeat, that I would one day get to be Belle, I don’t know what I would have done.” “A, I wouldn’t have believed you, and B, I would have freaked out,” she says.
Watson goes on to discuss how she adapted the original character of Belle to suit a modern audience. “It was very important to me that she be very active, and very in control of her own destiny. I wanted her to be powerful. She already was, to be honest,” the actress notes. Check out the video below, in which Watson also reflects on her first Harry Potter world premiere.
