Annnd more photos of Emma Watson for Financial Times HTSI + Emma's message

[Gallery] [Fashion] [Version fran├žaise]










Thank you, Anons!

To the person who sent the pdf screenshots, thank you very much but I think you and I can get in trouble if I publish it as just reposting their website post is a no-no.

The editor's letter let us know that Emma's the one who reached out for an article.

The first photo below comes from the magazine, the others were posted by the photographer on his Instagram.



Emma also shared a post on her Instagram saying:

    Dearest friends,

With a heart full of warmth and nostalgia, I am thrilled to introduce - Renais Gin @renaisspirits It is an ode to the sun-kissed vineyards of Chablis where my family has been making wine these past 30 years. Renais Gin is our love letter to Chablis; a carbon-neutral product, lovingly made from upcycled wine grapes.
I’m having a proud sister moment. @alex.s.watson

With love, From Emma x    

Screencaps of a video whose original source I can't find for now. I searched for a few minutes but I barely slept last night and have even less patience than usual XD

eden im curious why emma only seem to hang out with alex and not her other relatives that much? are they step siblings while alex is her full brother so they are closer?

i don't know her family much but i always hear she have sisters and other brothers but it feels like Alex and her are closer than the rest so im just wondering :)

"eden im curious why emma only seem to hang out with alex and not her other relatives that much? are they step siblings while alex is her full brother so they are closer?"

We used to see her all the time with one of her step-brother and we haven't seen her with Alex for years. We only a ridiculous small amount of the people she spends time with. None of us here can tell who she's closer to.

"there are BTS shots going around two maybe you saw those as well?"

I did, thank you. I just can't find the original source and no one is crediting them. I'll just post screencaps for now.

Alex is just neared in age to emma than her younger sisters and brothers so maybe thats why also Alex tried to follow emma into modeling and being in the limelight so they work together and we all see them more in public than others who are more private and not seeking public attention so thats why we see alex more too

Eden said...

Emma and one of their step-brother are only a few months apart.

Anonymous said...

I would say also to remember Alex found out he disliked modeling and eventually left the spotlight so thats why he was not seen much for years either

Anonymous said...

tbh i didnt even know there were sisters of emma that exist so thats how little i follow her family lol

Eden said...

"tbh i didnt even know there were sisters of emma that exist so thats how little i follow her family lol"

XD One full brother, two step-brothers, one helf-brother and two twin half-sisters. They all went to the last HP London Premiere.

The girls are now 18, we got a candid of her with them a while back on holiday on Iceland. We also have Toby’s photos with her in LA. David lives in LA with his wife and child. We don’t see Andy much.
She seems pretty close to all of them. We’re just seeing a lot of Alex right now.

I remember Alex in The Order of Phoenix standing near Emma (she is looking at him) in the courtyard where Umbridge was humiliating and firing the Seer Teacher (The one who saw the prophecy in the glass ball). He also a boy eating in the great hall in one of the later films. He was quite young. If Emma was 15 in Phoenix, then he was about 13 years. Now he is a handsome young man; you can certainly tell they are related- actually it was always evident..

When emma had short hair they looked like twins haha

Anonymous said...

Emma hangs out with her stepbrother Toby some too

Eden said...

Toby is her half-brother ;)

Anonymous said...

Maybe because Alex and Emma spends a lot of time together since they were children (look at Alex's birthday post for Emma and before everyone knows about his IG account he also got a lot of picture of them together that he deleted)....

maybe the divorce of their parents made them closer? Since they are coming from the same exact parents.

Emma also seems like a very caring big sister towards Alex (e.g: HP first premiere, she brings him everywhere with her) Even up untill now, we could see them being bery affectionate with each other (that new picture when they were on holiday and Alex is hugging Emma from behind)

Anonymous said...

Personally, I really like Emma, she seems to me to be an intelligent, educated, wise woman, but I can't see that she fits in (I don't know if this is well said, I don't speak English very well) anywhere. I explain. She has been an actress, an activist, she has worked in fashion, she has directed a campaign for a perfume, an occasional interviewer with artists, writers, now she collaborates in the creation of a gin... which some of these things go together and others do not, but it's like she wants to do everything, which is okay, she has time and money, but she seems to me like a person who needs to fit in somewhere and if she doesn't fit in, she looks for another job, and if she doesn't fit in this, she looks for another project, I don't know, I repeat, everyone does what they want with their lives, but she seems to me the eternal teen who is constantly looking for her place.

Anonymous said...

Just because we see Alex a lot now doesn’t mean she isn’t very close to the others. We simply see the interaction with Alex now as it’s very public. She’s mentioned numerous times how close she is to Dave (and his wife Lauren).

Anonymous said...

ts clear she hit a dead end about 3 years ago with her life and career (all that stuff about going to therapy, being in a 'covid cacoon' so on) I think she really made up her mind to move to production instead of acting as it really wasnt going anywhere and decided to remove most activism from her public life too during this era as its been causing problems. I think her new phase as a behind the scenes business person in L.A starts fully now, going by the tone used.

Hi Eden!! what do you think about this new Emma´s project?

I insists the press is sleeping on this. There’s no highlights. Weird.

Some people have to have sour grapes at her doing well I see. Even on here as supposed “fans”

Ahh eden slept through the Emma movie announcement of course it would happen but yes she will star in Top Gun 3!!! xD

are you going to buy the gin eden?

Anonymous said...

Again the Press just took the one weird quote about her drinking wine as a child and used it for the most clickbait headlines ever they don't care about the rest of the news

Anonymous said...

so if it isnt actually hamnet what else could emma possibly be cast in?

i guess she could have met with other directors we didnt hear about and we have no hard proof for the zhao meeting anyway...

but ist still the best lead we have over all imo

Anonymous said...

what im curious about is why she is always traveling with her dad but her mum is never seen these days?
maybe she just hates flying? so only dad can follow her around xD

Anonymous said...

i wonder how long she will stay in LA before going back to UK for her study?

Anonymous said...

The black and white shot with her arm resting by her face is so amazing like woah!

Anonymous said...

Media do not pick up emma news that much as her PR team seems to be gone (notice emma had to contact the FT writer herself on insta DMs for the article to happen)

aside from that the media only wants negative news about emma they even turned her birthday post into a negative with headlines they used to try and make emma seem like a weirdo who is too far into star signs or whatever

I'm tired of it tbh I dread any news about emma because it seems to be an excuse each time for papers and trash websites to drag her

OMG said...

Emma and Alex were born to the same mother

Anonymous said...

The FT made a mistake of putting out preview extracts of the article a few days early so all the press stole that quote about her dad and wine and now a few days later they dont bother to check the full article and instead are happy to have got their clicks off the silly wine headlines

Anonymous said...

meh the less mainstream 'press' coverage of emma the better they will just write something like
"Emma Watson woke Gin ruined my life!!"

eden did you ever find a source for the bts stuff?

so when would she film her music video?

is it happening right now? already made? or will happen over the summer before her return to school?

Anonymous said...

I'm glad of frequent updates now it stops deuxmoi and other nonsense filling the void with fake news and rumours about what emma is doing as now we see what is really going on :)

Anonymous said...

I dunno if she would work with ed Sheeran he is in court atm accused of stealing music...it could be bad for emma to get attached to him if he is found to have stolen the music marvin gaye family claims he did or whatever

Anonymous said...

I think Toby resembles Alex very much as a younger version of him.

Eden said...

"are you going to buy the gin eden?"

Nope. Way over my budget and I don't drink alcohol. I find the limited bottle pretty though.

Eden said...

"eden did you ever find a source for the bts stuff?"

Nope. It might have come from an Instagram story so it might not be available anymore.

Firstly it’s a long weekend in the UK so the press will be on skeleton crews. Things from UK magazines generally get picked up by other Uk press first and then go international. The press is very quiet right now and next week will be focused on the royal family, lots of their teams will be on that.
Secondly just because we don’t see her mum don’t mean she isn’t frequently with her, we’ve only seen Chris twice and that was in press, her mum wouldn’t be in press.
Thirdly on Ed Sheeran it’s not Marvin Gaye’s family, it’s Ed Townsends, and it’s purely about chord progression. If the jury misunderstands it and says he copied it, let’s get it on wasn’t the original and hundreds of songs have used it since. The rhythm, melody and lyrics are different, and a chord progression is a building block of music. Theres only so many chords and orders they can put in. If he’s found liable (and most people think he won’t be and it’s just a shake down like the last lawsuit which lost against him) it’d be an incredibly stupid decision and you’ll see it called such publicly by anyone who knows about music. The jury would have misunderstood it (which is unfortunately common in copyright cases as they’re very technical).

People need to read the other thread about her Oxford course. The masters is an MSt so two years part time designed for people who are also working. It’s not like a degree or one year taught masters. She won’t be physically there a lot.

I did say there are emma insta stories from her friends that disappear sadly fans cant find all emma posts all the time

At least someone grabbed it before 24hrs were up xd I think emma has new rule arounds posts of her that friends make that maybe they mainly stay temporary for some reason maybe to stop too many fans commenting or something?

if its like brown emma will do alot of online study and courses she might never even travel to uk for it alot of things changed during covid with learning and many have been kept in place about online course work

With Ed sheeran a lot of people dont like him for some reason even in the industry so all kinds of lies and backlash happen to him, i noticed he first got really hated after a cameo in game of thrones years ago and people still angry about it lol

All these artist claim people took notes from them for quick money but as others said there are only so many musical notes and orders in which to use them some are going to sound similar by accident eventually really one of the dumber lawsuits I've seen (i don't even like Sheeran's music either tbh)

Its funny to think Emma just slides into dms of people to collab with haha

i had a feeling she runs her worklife now and not really some 'team' and you can tell she is happier being one in charge and making her own moves about what she is going to do next

so glad for her :)

I think it was ice skating actually?

not rollerblading but i know what pictures you mean it was like a decade-plus ago though

independent covered it yesterday but that seems like it so far

Anonymous said...

I think Emma is simply more suited to period dramas and historical settings like little women and Hamnet makes more sense for her than actions roles

probably more creatively fulfilling for her too

Anonymous said...

okay but where is 'deadline, variety, vogue, hollywood reporter, E online, Elle and others who used to do postive coverage on emma?

i kinda agree the press are sleeping on this news

Maybe its not 'entertainment' so wont go on those sites but they used to report emma's activism and stuff even when it wasn't 'entertainment news' per say

maybe it will happen next week and get bigger as others said

Anonymous said...

I think she could do both action and historical setting in a movie at same time maybe? xD

Eden said...

I think sites like Variety and Deadline will only talk about it when they'll have more infos. All they have to say right now is "Emma Watson will film something in 2024". They probably don't consider it worth an article.

Anonymous said...

I think the fact Alex is running it and Emma is just helping the promo a little with her name is making some of those sites listed not take on the story as really the headlines should be

"Alex Watson releases new Gin"

and if they don't mention Emma people will be like "Who" in the comments lol

Give it time though as other mentions it could take off on Tuesday after May Day holiday ends

or maybe you post on old thread and i didnt see it sorry if so haha

The photo is not new and her message is already posted on this post.

Anonymous said...

I think people misunderstood my meaning but eden understood actually that the real news is 'emma watson to return to acting in 2024!' not that she is helping release a gin lol
im nots hocked that gin news isnt trending but more the news of her comeback to acting isnt taking off
but maybe eden is right they dont have enough info...but that headline is juicy enough or clicks imo "Emma Watson plans 2024 return to big screen" would get clicks

Eden said...

"but that headline is juicy enough or clicks imo "Emma Watson plans 2024 return to big screen" would get clicks"

True. As another Anon said, it could be because of the long weekend. We'll see on Tuesday.

Anonymous said...

well, tbf hiding the news you will make a new movie in an article about your brother's gin is odd way to go about telling people anything lol

so yeah its not that surprising many outlets sleep on the news more than eden sleeps through emma news ;)

Anonymous said...

A key thing to remember is 'if everything goes to plan' in Emma's statement as that left doubt if her new film is confirmed 100% just yet so maybe newspapers don't want to jump the gun with another false Emma watson casting story, as readers will get fed up of fake news eventually

Anonymous said...

"not that surprising many outlets sleep on the news more than eden sleeps through emma news ;) "

omg! do not disrespect eden ace reporting skills like this! shade was not called for xd

Anonymous said...

in an unconfirmed case you just make sure to use the word "could" like 'could Emma watson return in 2024 to acting?'

That covers you if it turns out false later as you make sure to frame it as speculation

Anonymous said...

I think it has to be chloe zhao related role even if not hamnet it could be other works like directors can work on multiple projects in a year

Anonymous said...

Has Emma some company whose name starts with the letter T?

Anonymous said...

Those were the journalists words and not Emma’s, but Alex Biles is experienced and reputable, I took the “if everything goes to plan” as a reference to the timing i.e. it actually filming in early 2024. Filming start dates often change in Hollywood

Anonymous said...

It won’t be false it’s whether it shoots on time or not. Also Emma watson going back to acting isn’t much news for the likes of DM without the film. I expect deadline or variety to break it and then we’ll get a response!
As someone said there’s two UK holidays back to back right now due to the coronation, expect everything this week to be royal family related unless it’s strikes etc. I don’t expect much other news to break through unless major

Anonymous said...

I think the music video is being made atm while emma is in LA maybe? or she will leave it till the summer

kinda interesting that her country of residence for her UK production company listings is the United States, they were only registered late last year so her permanent residence must be considered to be the US right now

She was in mexico most of 2023 first though but in LA this last month and a half,bi think emma gave no fixed residence and a job listing for her company that people found said 'must be willing to travel" working for bread crumb productions will involve international travel it seems

Yep. "During her time at Brown, Watson described suffering bullying by other students due to her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films." She described the exact opposite

it was just a meme people made of saying '5 points to Gryffindor every time Emma would speak in class' Apparently it never happened

this is the best example yet of media making fake narratives about Emma all the time for clicks

Eden said...

It wasn't a meme, someone made the joke and people took it seriously and repeated it as if it had happened to them/their sister/brother/cousin... you name it.

Anonymous said...

I saw on Quora questions site people asking what it was like to be at Brown with Emma Watson and most people say like 'she was very nice' or 'oh we were too scared to talk to her in case she got bothered' so sounds like people did nothing wrong at all lol

Eden said...

I feel like if something bad ever happened there to Emma, someone visiting Brown would probably be responsible. I doubt anyone attending would risk coming for a celebrity and potentially being kicked out of a 50k a year university. (I'm assuming the amount of money, I don't actually know)

Anonymous said...

no one is bullying the celebs at their school as they know if it gets around they will be thrown out so fast as the faculty will side with celeb instantly lol

Anonymous said...

Today is a public holiday and as others have said I’d be very surprised if the press picked it up on Tuesday given it was one line in the article (the journo kept the main focus on the gin), and everything else going on in the UK this week.

On the Brown story she’s constantly denied it, just be annoying.

Anonymous said...

Why bring up Brown U. Emma was positive about BU and had friends like Scout Willis. She was in the theater at the university. You do not need to be a celebrity to get a bounce at university; that is part of life. But this is really old stuff and has not been mentioned for a long time.
