Harry Potter star Emma Watson has revealed that she is very proud of her new movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Emma admits that it took some getting used to, playing such a different character than what she was used to but once she got into the swing of it she felt great.
Watson explained before a gala screening at London's Mayfair Hotel, “It was challenging. I was very nervous. Having played someone who was so restrained and very English to playing this free-spirited American girl, which was at the other end of the spectrum for me, it took a while to break down a lot of the barriers I didn't even realise I had put up for myself. So when I did, it felt very liberating. I'm very proud of the film.”
There have been many rumours recently that Emma Watson could be set to play the female lead of Anastasia Steele in the raunchy book Fifty Shades of Grey. Even Emma’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower co star Nina Dobrev admitted that Emma would be interested in the role and now it appears that Emma herself could be tempted.
She added, “I haven't read the book, but I hear it's quite raunchy. I mean, if there's interesting character development and an interesting story, then I would consider it.”
The Perks of Being a Wallflower was released in the US on September 21 and is set to be released in the UK on October 3.
