We all know about the Disney princess’ cliches, which is why Emma Watson demanded that Disney does something different with her character Bella in the movie The Beauty and the Beast.
The Harry Potter actress demanded to Disney that her character was not equal to the same unrealistic stereotypes of the damsel in distress and to try that Bella, its personage in the film was a very normal girl.
“It’s subtle things; I insisted that she had some trousers on underneath her skirt so that she could get on and off a horse in a way that was not ridiculous”.
“I made sure that she wore proper boots, and I insisted that she had great pockets so she could carry around her books. Said the actress who also demanded that Photoshop not is used.
“I insisted on this film, for example, that they keep my freckles,” the Harry Potter star said. “Usually they block them all out. I insisted that my body shape is the body shape”.
“You come under quite serious pressure when you’re doing Hollywood films to wear a heavy amount of boob support and whatever else! Various things like that. I thought the more human I could make her, that to me felt the best way to serve her”.
Another demand of the actress was that her character was not sexualized and that her ideals were feminist.
As well as her new character, Emma Watson’s acting career may sound like a fairy tale. She was barely nine years old and had almost no acting experience when the role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone fell into her hands, without seeing at the time that she would become an infantile idol who now enjoys fame and fortune.
At 27, she has Hollywood at her feet, more than 80 million followers on her social networks, she is an advocate for women’s rights, and she became the princess of Beauty and the Beast.
In Beauty and the Beast, her character aspires to an interesting life, and her dreams are great because she loves to read.
One day his father goes on horseback and gets lost in an enchanted forest and takes refuge in a castle without imagining who lived there. The Beast believes that he is an intruder and imprisons him, so Bella changes his freedom for that of his father and begins a story in which only love will save the prince of the spell.
