Over the last few days, Emma Watson had updated her official website by answering fan questions that were submitted to her Facebook Page. Below are the three selected questions and answers.
What’s happening with Beauty and the Beast?
Emma: Guillermo del Toro, the director, has just finished editing his last film and is working on the script and pre-production for Beauty and the Beast.
Would you be interested in directing/producing?
Emma: Absolutely. I still have a lot to learn but I would definitely like to do something like this in the future.
Are there any more fair trade collaborations on the horizon?
Emma: There has been a lot of speculation about my People Tree collections, with stories running that they 'failed' or that I was unhappy. This was really strange because I felt the opposite of this. From the two collections I did with People Tree overall sales were 446,000GBP which was a huge surprise. The collections generated work for 400 farmers, artisans and tailors! For me though, the most important part of the collaboration was that I was able to raise the profile of Fair Trade fashion which I think I did successfully. I visited Bangladesh to see the clothes being made and spoke with the factory workers first hand to understand what the real issues were so I would be able to talk about them in an informed and real way. In terms of other collaborations, I have decided I want to put all of my energy into my acting career but it was something I really enjoyed doing,learnt a lot from and am glad I did.
