While in Paris for the promotion of The Circle, Emma was interviewed by Juliette Delacroix for TF1, and the video was broadcasted live on Facebook. Thanks to Totally Emma Watson on Youtube, we can now share the video with you. Emma sort of summarizes the film’s plot in the best way she can without giving too much away, and says that the subject of how social media influences our lives and what it could become in the future is a “fascinating thing to go and see and talk about”.

Emma attended the Paris premiere for The Circle tonight! The event took place at Cinema UGC Normandie, and she wore a white satin Miu Miu gown covered in crystals and blue floral print. During her visit in the city, Emma continued her sneaky business of hiding books in unsuspecting places, and the chosen one this time around was “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood. Have you found any of them yet? You better be organizing group hunts for this! We’ll be joining you all in spirit and positive thoughts since we live pretty far away. Our gallery has been updated with images from tonight’s event!

Last night, Emma attended the MTV Movie & TV Awards where she received the award for Best Actor for her role as Belle in Beauty and The Beast. The movie itself also received an award– Movie of The Year! It was a very special night, with Emma’s speech making it to headlines and once again, inspiring each one of us. While there are no photos of the arrival, as it was raining and many of the guests weren’t able to pose, we’ve added to our gallery photos from the show and press room! You can also watch the speech and thanks to Elle, read the transcript bellow!

Wow. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. Firstly, I feel I have to say something about the award itself. The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.

This is very meaningful to me. Both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia [Kate Dillon]. Thank you for educating me in such—in such an inclusive, patient, and loving way. Thank you so much. I think I’m being given this award for a performance as an actor, but it doesn’t feel like that what it’s really for, although I am very grateful if you did think that I did a good job because the whole singing part of the situation was pretty terrifying—yeah, not kidding about that part!

But more seriously, I think I am being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents. The villagers in our fairy tale wanted to make Belle believe that the world is smaller than the way she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her—that her curiosity and passion for knowledge and her desire for more in life were grounds for alienation. I loved playing someone who didn’t listen to any of that. I’m so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does.

I want to thank Linda Woolverton for writing the original Belle, Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont for writing what the animated movie was based on, and Paige O’Hara for playing Belle in the original. And I want to thank every single person who voted for me. Thank you so much. Taraji [P. Henson], I can’t see you, but Daniel [Kaluuya], James [McAvoy], Hailee [Steinfeld], all of you, it’s a privilege to have been nominated alongside you. Lastly I want to thank any one and everyone who had anything to do with giving me this opportunity and for supporting me on that journey. You know who you are, and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you so, so much.

Hello Emma fans! Emma was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Thursday (April 27) to promote The Circle and talk a bit of Beauty and The Beast. It was such a fun appearance, where we got to know that on during very first appearance on the talk show, Emma mistook Jimmy Fallon for Jimmy Kimmel. Photos from the talk show have been added to our gallery, and you can also watch a clip bellow!

Variety has posted on their website a review of The Circle, which stars Emma, Tom Hanks and John Boyega. While the movie hasn’t had that many good critics so far, the publication highlights Emma’s performance in it. You can read all about it bellow (and under the cut)! Please beware that the review contains SPOILERS.

“The Circle” is a swankly sinister little mind teaser of a thriller. It’s a nightmare vision of what digital culture is turning all of us into, with all of our help. The movie, adapted from Dave Eggers’ 2013 novel and directed by James Ponsoldt (“The End of the Tour”), is about a corporation called The Circle that stores massive amounts of data — financial, medical, social, personal — about each of the account holders who belong to it. The company, based in the Bay Area, knows everything there is to know about you — but it’s all for your own convenience! You could call “The Circle” a dystopian thriller, yet it’s not the usual boilerplate sci-fi about grimly abstract oppressors lording it over everyone else. The movie is smarter and creepier than that; it’s a cautionary tale for the age of social-media witch hunts and compulsive oversharing. The fascist digital future the movie imagines is darkly intriguing to contemplate, because one’s main thought about it is how much of that future is already here.

Life imitated art when The Circle star Emma Watson walked the red carpet at the movie’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere facing the glowing lights of smartphone cameras. In James Ponsoldt’s new drama, adapted from the 2013 novel by Dave Eggers, the Beauty and the Beast star plays Mae Holland, an employee at the titular tech-world behemoth who agrees to live her entire life on camera — a status her corporate overseers, including Circle co-founder Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), label as going “transparent.” It’s a decision that carries a heavy personal cost, including the loss of friends and family as well as her own privacy.

One could say that Watson has been living a transparent life — albeit with less tragic consequences — since age 10, when she embarked on a decade-long odyssey playing Hermione Granger in the eight-film Harry Potter franchise. Speaking at a post-screening Q&A for The Circle, the now-27 year old actress remarked on the connection between the film and her real life. “It was a very vulnerable experience for me, this movie. It went to the bone of an experience where you have to look out from a stage, and there are things going on behind the scenes that nobody knows about. You just have to turn on and be this thing. Getting to play Mae and put that [experience] onscreen was very hard for me, and I’m so grateful to James for giving me to opportunity to live that.”

Watson went on to add that she’s become more “mindful” of her online presence — which includes a Twitter account with nearly 25 million followers, and an Instagram that reaches 33.1 million people —since making The Circle, which opens in theaters on April 28. Further encouraging her to take a step back is the recent decision by Congress to roll back Internet privacy regulations put in place by the previous administration. “All I can say is, there’s no right answer,” she remarked. “Trust me — I have grilled Dave Eggers! For me, it’s about taking back the information that belongs to us and to me. I didn’t think about most of this stuff before I read Dave’s book.”

While the Circle isn’t a real Silicon Valley conglomerate, Ponsoldt told the audience that the production team spent time at some actual tech companies for background research. “We visited a bunch of campuses to get sense of portraying this world and recognizing what’s positive [about it]. We all know the products, obviously, but wanted to spend time with the people there.” And, much like his star, the director of such acclaimed dramas as The Spectacular Now and The End of the Tour, has been thinking a lot about his digital life in the wake of researching and making The Circle. “When I read it, my wife was pregnant with our first child, and we began to talk about the freedoms our children would have and how intentionally we’d be documenting their childhood — or not.” Good thing that Ponsoldt knows an actress who can provide him with plenty of advice about the benefits and risks of growing up on camera.
