Emma Watson cover of “NY Times “T” Style” Fashion – also discusses “Perks” and “Beauty and the Beast”
When asked about her latest film of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is set for release September 14 in the USA, regarding her honing in her American accent for the film, she stated:
“My grandma said – when I was really young and I’d sing along to the radio – why do you sing in an American accent? I guess it was because a lot of the music I was listening to had American vocalists. And that was something Steve said to me as well: try singing the lines in an American accent. That kind of opened me up. Then I worked with a dialogue coach and I just put in the time to really, really listen and just go over it and over it and over it until I could do it without thinking about it too hard. And I just knew it was really important.”
In another article from New York Times, Emma confirmed that she will begin shooting with Guillermo Del Toro for the film Beauty and the Beast, stating:
“I went to him [del Toro] and said Warner Brothers have given me the script for ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ but the only way I’d really want to do it is if you did it. And then miraculously he said, ‘Oh, funnily enough ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is my favorite fairy tale, I can’t let anyone else do this, I’ll start putting a team together.'”
Emma is also shooting with Russell Crowe in the film Noah, so she has definitely been quite busy lately. What project are looking forward to the most from Emma? Let us know in the comments below.
