Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has revealed how, while she does like to get dressed up for the red carpet events, when she is at home she is actually very boring in what she wears. Emma also discussed her reasoning behind becoming the face for Lancôme, when she is known for being a person who does not embrace the limelight.
Watson explained, "My problem is that I am a little bit boring. I don't wear designer bags or big sunglasses. When I don't have to play Emma Watson in public, I'd rather not put myself 'out there'. I have to be more careful with my look in my everyday life. 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!"
She added, "Before, I used to insist on taking the bus or the underground as a way of rebelling against my fame. But, at one point, you have to give it up. Last year, in Bangladesh, I came across a really poor village, made of dried mud shacks. A little boy dressed in rags asked me, 'Hey, aren't you the girl in Harry Potter?' I would have never lend my image to a brand if I didn't feel in perfect harmony with it!
She concluded, “Lancôme embodies everything I like: France, where I was born, quality and stars who I admire for their sincerity and charm, like Julia Roberts or Penélope Cruz. And, most of all, Lancôme allowed me to work the way I wanted to. I appreciated that a lot.” Emma Watson can be seen on the big screen later this year alongside Logan Lerman and Nina Dobrev in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
