It has been released the first theatrical trailer for Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women, which stars Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan. In case you might have missed it, Emma plays Meg March – the oldest of the March sisters. Director Greta Gerwig’s spoke briefly with Entertainment Weekly in honor of the trailer release, about casting Emma for the role of Meg. The trailer and the piece of article can be found below. Little Women is set to be released in theaters on December 25, 2019.

To play Jo’s elegant sister Meg, Gerwig turned to Emma Watson. “To me, [Watson] embodies everything that I was interested in, in terms of who the March women were,” Gerwig says. “She’s just smart. She’s on multi-governmental organizations that speak to the U.N., and she’s so thoughtful and present. She is way out there trying to do everything she can.”

Watson, an outspoken activist for gender equality, is best known for playing a witch and a princess who refuse to be limited by systemic oppression or social expectations — but here, she is not the obviously feisty Jo, but her much more outwardly conventional sister. “For me personally, Meg March is a character that is long misunderstood,” Gerwig says. “In terms of what [Watson] did with the character, she has so much open-heartedness and so much love combined with that much intelligence, it’s heartbreaking and potent. Because she’s absolutely herself with understanding the struggle of who that character is.”

The actress (and noted feminist book clubber) “would always bring so much to the conversation” from her extensive reading and research, Gerwig says. “She is all-in, not just as an actor, but as a mind.”

Emma has teamed up with Time’s Up to help launch a Workplace Sexual Harassment Hotline! According to the website Rights of Women, the line will provide the only specialist free legal advice line for women in England and Wales experiencing sexual harassment at work – “The legal advice will be provided by Rights of Women legal staff and volunteer women employment lawyers through a dedicated telephone line. Women calling will be able to get specialist legal advice on what behaviour constitutes sexual harassment, how to bring a grievance against their employer, how to make a claim in the Employment Tribunal, settlement agreements and non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) and other related legal problems faced by women experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace.

The advice line is funded by the TIME’S UP UK Justice and Equality Fund, managed by Rosa, the UK Fund for Women and Girls, kickstarted by donations from British actor and activist Emma Watson and others.

Read Emma Watson’s official statement below:

“I’m honestly delighted that the funds raised by the public through the Justice and Equality Fund, which TIME’S UP UK catalysed in collaboration with women’s organisations, is powering the only free, specialist legal advice line for women in England and Wales experiencing sexual harassment at work*.

However, it’s completely staggering to think that this is the only service of its type given that research has found that as many as one in two women experience sexual harassment in the workplace. It finally feels like people are realising the scale of the problem, and I’m certainly hopeful that with global standards such as the recent International Labour Organization treaty on harassment at work, we’ll start to see a new climate of prevention and accountability on this issue domestically.

Understanding what your rights are, how you can assert them, and the choices you have if you’ve experienced harassment, is such a vital part of creating safe workplaces for everyone, and this advice line is such a huge development in ensuring that all women are supported, wherever we work.”

Emma has joined the Pirelli Calendar 2020 –  a project which purpose is to mark the passing of time with images taken by high acclaimed photographers, by capturing and interpreting contemporary culture. 2020’s a tribute to Juliet Capulet, from Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. Emma will be playing one of the many Juliet’s (yes there is more than just one) and we bring you some official behind the scenes photos from the shoot!  You will also find below a behind the scenes video, and an article published by Vogue US on the project.

Summer’s in full swing, but Pirelli has just closed next year’s calendar, a tribute to the heroine of Romeo and Juliet. True to Shakespeare’s play, the photographer Paolo Roversi shot images in Verona, Italy, as well as in the city he calls home, Paris. But in keeping with the spirit of the times, for 2020 this production is all Juliets (yes, plural), shown variously in costume, in situ, and IRL.

In an exclusive interview, Roversi said the classic served as a springboard for a make-believe construct about a director in search of “his” Juliet. “There’s no Romeo here, there are only Juliets who show up for a casting call, respond to questions, and reveal their own version of the character before re-enacting a passage from the tragedy, in costume,” he explained. “What was very moving was to see actresses of this level audition like it was their first casting. There’s something so innocent, naïve, and sincere about it that really corresponds to Juliet.” In a neat piece of cinema verité, that is how a short feature film—a first for Pirelli, and a standalone work directed by Roversi in tandem with shooting the calendar—plays out.

In the end, Roveri cast not one but nine Juliets, a diverse gathering. American actors Yara Shahidi, Kristen Stewart, and Indya Moore keep company with singers—the Chinese artist Chris Lee and the Spanish artist Rosalia—as well as the British actresses Claire Foy, Mia Goth, and Emma Watson, and Roversi’s daughter, the Franco-Italian artist Stella Roversi. “I wanted a true casting, with women who would correspond to a kind of a journey featuring women of today from different countries and cultures,” he said. “Every one of them was marvelous. They all brought intensity and lots of emotion to a project that above all glorifies beauty and love.”

For Roversi, the calendar has wrapped but his search for Juliet will go on indefinitely. “I think every woman has her inner Juliet,” he said. “In the end, the story is about love, and Juliet is a dream.”
