Greta Gerwig "Emma Watson is way out there trying to do everything she can"

[Version française]

Below is the part about Emma. Full interview at Entertainment Weekly:

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.”

It's no doubt that Emma is committed activist, but as an actress I'm not so sure anymore. She's rarely playing in movies, she's taking a long breaks in her carrer, which does not make her any good, cause she's not as gifted and expierienced like Daniel Day Lewis, she desn't try any tv series, or at least mini series. Of course she can do whatever she want, but in my opinion trying to do everything she can, as Gerwig said, doesn't allow her to be on top of her profesion. I'm very eager to see how good she's gonna be, compare to Saoirse Ronan or Florence Pugh.

Sweet jesus: 150£ for a t-shirt 😶 (I'm also eco-aware and know the difference between primark and eco-cotton, but the price of this piece is just crazy).

It's easy to be eco friendly, when you can afford on every single piece of clothes you wanna.
