Emma Watson's pick for the "Avedon 100" exhibition at Gagosian in New York

[Version fran├žaise]










Richard Avedon was a very influential American fashion photographer. He would have turned 100 on May 15 and to celebrate him and his work, The Richard Avedon Foundation set up an exhibition at the Gagosian Art Gallery in New York where more than 150 public figures, including Emma, picked a photo from his portfolio "that they believe explains, in its own way, the enduring influence and genius of the celebrated photographer", according to Derek Blasberg, one of Emma's good friend who also worked on the exhibition. Emma picked one of his shot of Donyale Luna. According to Ocula, "Emma Watson's pick, a 1965 portrait of Donyale Luna, the first Black model to illustrate Vogue's cover, pays tribute to Avedon's indiscriminate eye—the image generated controversy at the time, leading to the artist's resignation from Harper's Bazaar."

The shots will also be part of a book that will be released on September 5, 2023. In the book, Emma says "Avedon was a pioneer of allyship for diversity in the fashion world. We see it many times, including with his insistence that fashion magazines use images of women of color, like the time he threatened to quit working for Harper’s Bazaar if the publication didn’t run a now-iconic 1958 portrait of China Machado ashing a cigarette."

You can pre-order the book on Amazon (link affiliated).

what is everyone's thoughts that now the hp series is coming emma will never play hermione granger again?

Anonymous said...

We don’t know that. They could decide to do different versions. Or it could flop and in 5 years time they go back to older cast. She could do the stage version…
None of the above are massive leaps. Weird things happen in Hollywood. Much much weirder things.

Anonymous said...

You know that how? They could easily scrap it and revert if it fails. Or have a film version and tv version (ie the Flash!)

Anonymous said...

The only way Emma would/could play Hermione again is in the epilogue episode(s). I’d love for Dan, Emma, Rupert, Tom, and Bonnie to come back for the final episode(s). It would be like a little bit of an Easter egg or a throwback to the OGs. Other than that, there’s no reason for Emma to play Hermione again since most of what they’re making is about their Hogwarts years.

I don't think she was ever going to get involved in any franchise again. Studios keep an even tighter grip on those than on standalone movies, so if she hates the lack of control she normally has I don't see her going back to something even worse.

Anonymous said...

O think it is fine that she will not play a role in the series. Young people will most likely want to see stars of their generation that speak to their interests. Emma, Rupert, and Daniel are in their 30`s and have moved on. I also do not think it would do their careers any good if they played in the series. I take that back- only if the series is based on different stories within the novel. But no, I do not see it, unless she plays a parent role in The Cursed Child, but I remember reading somewhere, that Rowling said that The Cursed Child was written for the theatre and that the story is not intended as a film.

I no longer support hp its good emma wont be in it for me

A soulless reboot cash grab when the series barely just finished? no thanks!

I will just ignore it like all this other reboot trash :)

I think lots of people are just ignoring to be honest - the excitement for it versus the reunion is negligible

Emma should do her own projects where she is happy and in control time to move on from the past

Emma's not involved so i no longer care to pay attention to it really HP is over and that's fine greedy CEOs in suits can remake it all they want but the fans will know its made without passion just for money

Anonymous said...

I agree, it is better that she completely moves on from HP. I kind of hope she does Queen of Tearling, but Heyman has the rights. After she finishes her degree, she will be well on her way to really fill her desires, for then she will have the proper tools.

I have no interest in the series, and I will not watch it. The original movies with Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe are the best for me. I will enjoy them many years from now. Other than the new Batman with Robert Pattinson, the reboots- in my opinion are a yawn. I take to guess that I think that because one knows the ground story. I am looking forward to read what Emma writes and produces and even directs. She has so many good qualities; it was a joy to watch her grow up in the Hermoine role. She did not turn to drugs or delve into other questionable behavior. Yes, she is a role model for young women. Actors in our world have very questionable doings, which makes them unattractive. Sometimes it seems to me that they are unable to separate fiction from real life. Emma is going her own way and keeping her character. Admirable!

Anonymous said...

I am not sure why people are keen to see Emma writing and directing if she is not in the movies then we won’t see her.

Anonymous said...

because fans hope it make emma happy to do something she enjoys creatively?

Anonymous said...

They could literally do a prequel like The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones that fans will def love, but they choose reboot instead. I'm still surprised they didn't cancel it considering the amount of hates they got in the comments or news

WE WANT EMMA TO BE HAPPY!!! Besides if she's the director she could has a cameo in her films thooo­čśť

Anonymous said...

There's no particular reason she couldn't star in her own movies, plenty of directors do it.

Anonymous said...

I wanted to say the same thing about her starring in her own films. Mel Gibson did it. I think a pre-sequel like The Hunger Games would be great. I always wondered about the Gaunt family, Voldemort's ancestors from his mother's side. The books have a lot of characters to flesh out. I remember Mad Eye Moody mentioning a great wizard by the name of Granger after he met Hermoine and detected her range as an upcoming wizard. I remember that my brain ticked. I thought a lot would come in connection to Hermoine and her ancestry. Maybe that was a lost thread of the story or a Nixe out of dark waters to have the reader wondering. I wish J.K. Rowling luck in her endeavors; I have read the Strike series. It is well written and entertaining, but HP is to date her best.

Seeing that Emma broke up with Brandon Green today. Didn’t know they were still dating

lol that new daily mail list of her boyfriends is so dumb didnt even list the most serious ones of mack knight or Matt or the other rugby guy tom drucker they just picked the worst guys to make emma look bad smh

it was over as soon as we saw her with an ex tbh even if you are just friends you dont hang out with your exs while serious with another person really

allegedly broke up at christmas going by daily fail and we heard emma was on a skiing trip at that time so maybe it didnt go well or green didnt even get to go haha

They weren't, this is just the media catching up to where we were months ago.

well whatever people do stay away from daily fail comments section its the new levels of misogyny and shaming Emma for her love life

i should never have looked but i saw like 200 comments after only 1hr of posting and was wondering why it blew up so much and yeah its just hate smh

I think that was the joke.

daily fail suggests she broke up with him around her birthday actually and says it was the 'Saturn return thin' that made emma feel she need to change her life...at least thats how i took what they were trying to say...its all bs imo....green was never serious he was seen with her 4 times in 2 years it was casual hookups imo

Anonymous said...

I think whilst we figured it out yonks ago (and wasn’t skiing at Christmas) this has likely been leaked as she’s started seeing someone else

Anonymous said...

Emma knows for her 2024 comeback to go well she cant have media dragging her for being involved in green family, daily mail has been pushing how terrible philip green is and headlines about it being 'shocking' Emma Watson is linked to them for 2 years now and its been messing with people's views of her
Its wise to move on even if brandon isnt like his dad the bad family name was hanging over them the whole time and i dont know how happy emma could be with all that neagtive press coming at her

Anonymous said...

lol Eden get your lawyers they claim its 'exclusive' story to them that they broke up but its been on your blog since January the idea that she had moved on lmao xD

Anonymous said...

the 2 year time limit was up lol
i know its a meme with emma that's how long her bfs last but i think its something too it now where she actually decides only to ever date for 2 years before moving on
and actually does believe in her self-partnered thing

Anonymous said...

The fandom have prayed for this day good its finally here!

sorry but this guy was too immature for her from how we saw him acting in pics and reading about his 'playboy' lifestyle

I just never saw it working out at any point

oh well now we can focus on Emma's 2024 project fully and no more silly dating rumors about green to drag it down :)

Eden said...

"green was never serious he was seen with her 4 times in 2 years it was casual hookups imo"

We only had a few photos of them but she could have been with him every single day we didn't see photos or videos of her, which is hundreds.

Anonymous said...

pretty sure she got seen with her ex last month to kick off the news that she is single again and remove headlines about her and Green

She was always across the ocean from where green apparently was though for much of the 2 years
so it looked kinda obvious it wasn't that serious

Remember that the Daily Mail were the ones that said they had "sources" saying she was going to settle down and have kids with Leo... after they broke up. As has been said, people here figured this out months ago.

She has lost a lot of power/influence she had a decade ago. Not going to happen.

Anonymous said...

DM are using the fan blogs and comments plus Emma's insta posts about a change in her life after Saturn return to speculate that the relationship is over the same we have but there is no official statement from Emma or her team or any legit sources given

i agree the DM are just guessing and using fans' info as their own lol

I'm sure she and green really are over though it's going on 7 months+ since the last sighting of them together and Emma seems to be focused on herself and work not Green.

it wasn't even an exclusive to eden the news they broke up xd i recall many other sites like 'Metro' posted "Emma Waston reconciles with her ex brendan wallace" as a headline back in March

The Queen of the Tearling movie was chewed up and spat out after the Disney-Fox acquisition as far as I know.

Anonymous said...

TqoTR IP might not be that popular anymore for a movie to happen also it could have came and went by now sadly

Anonymous said...

Queen of the Tearling was Warner Bros and was put on an indefinite hold following the failure of Jupiter assending. WB have lost a huge amount of money on original fantasy and they aren’t going to back it no matter who is in it. Also it’s even more unlikely as the books went downhill after the first (really good) one.

Anonymous said...

Queen of the Tearling was WB who then lost a tonne of money on fantasy right after it was announced. As budget is even worse now it’s not going to get made. Hardly anything with the expensive budget it would need gets made now unless it’s superhero IP

Anonymous said...

Emma's team haven't made statements about her dating life in years and years maybe mack knight break up was the last? (Eden do you know when they stopped confirming breakups?) in any case I doubt they will ever address this and neither will Emma.

we will know its fully over when she is at the beach with a new guy probably.

Anonymous said...

queen of tearling struck me as an attempt to cash in on the young adult fantasy trope that was big at the time but it fell in popularity and its unlikely any movie for queen of tearling will come these days tbh

'jk rowling fell off hard after hp, reviews of beasts film writing show she lost the touch imo'

I think she's probably coping.
JUst published Sunday Times 2023 rich list has her worth £875 million (191st richest person in the UK).
FWIW Emma is listed at £60 mill, Daniel £92 mill.

As I do every time I see the Daily Mail talked about, I ask why are people still giving it clicks?
I mean it's going to piss you off reading it, why not just ignore it?

Anonymous said...

its clear she needs an editor like back during first few hp books to keep on track otherwise her scripts and novels veer wildly off course...i dunno if she used to have ghost writers or some top tier editor but yeah something changed
maybe not hungry or passionate after huge success who knows
Hp seems to jsut keep going as a brand these days so it can be miled by warner bros mainly

just to say online net worth posts are always guess work there is never any source to show the actual wealth of celebs and even if its directly from the person's mouth they could be exaggerating or holding back how much they actually have

Emma has 80m+ easily dan is also more likely at 130m as he keeps working all the time

they both also own property and other investments making passive income pretty sure

Anonymous said...

its said emma gave away 20m to echo projects though so maybe she did take a big hit to wealth but i take the point a lot of these lists are guesswork and not proven

Money is not the be-all and end all either
Emma and Dan have love of many fans and try to help people and are very respected that makes them truly 'wealthy' :)

Anonymous said...

"20m to echo projects"

I'm assuming that meant eco. She invests in eco projects, she doesn't donate to them. The $20 million you're referring to was actually a group of angel investors, of which she was one of 12.

Anonymous said...

Emma set up of two production companies, that will have taken millions as well...but owning those companies would still count as an asset and actually add to her overall net worth too?

it's hard to calculate these things a lot of factors to consider other than just how much we know she made on her films

We need her total property, cars, investments, and stuff no one but she knows

Anonymous said...

probably owns about 5 houses, one in uk one in france one in spain
maybe 2 is USA LA/NYC and who knows where else
could have spend 40m there alone on all the properties

last year she spent a lot at a kering charity dinner too or something?

i kinda do expect dan to have the most money still i think he leads a very normal life style and you hardly ever see him appear doing a lot of globe-trotting or stuff Emma does so it tracks that he has a bit more money imo (also yes he acts often still while emma does not)

I can only think of using Insta, Eden do you think that's the best way?

Anonymous said...

I wonder if Emma understands what acting means, for to be a good actress you have to be able to step out of your comfort zone: see the character you are going to play with their intelligence and emotional side, and the social arena. Saying that she feels caged because she is unable to help decide, puts me on edge, and makes me come to the conclusion that she does not understand what it means to be an actress. You have to be humble enough to let yourself be guided in a role. Anyway, I am looking forward to watching and read anything she may produce and write. But I just wanted to express my feelings about Emma's attitude.

Anonymous said...

100% agree with the previous poster. Acting is becoming another person entirely…just because you are unable to stand for the characters beliefs or morals and you have to justify why you did the role to others is not what acting should be. Most actors who do really well embrace the differences between the character and themselves. This is what makes them great - stepping out of their comfort zone.

Regardless, I always thought she would go into writing and would do better on the producer/writer front given her education/background. I’ll probably read a memoir/book of hers more than care to watch a film that is done because she “fits” the same character she has always done

Anonymous said...

Reading both posts makes me think of Meryl Streep in Osage County, where she plays a dying, insane, vicious wife and mother and she nailed the role. She almost got an Oscar but- I think was beat out by Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmin. Both of these characters are mentally ill and nasty women, but both actresses captured the character, personality, and insanity of their character. Both are mothers of four and five children and married to one man. Admirable. I would conclude that they have their act together.I also have to think of Charlize Theron in Monster where she played this man killer. She was so barbaric and disturbed I only realized half way through the film who the actress was.I said 'Charlize, she is great, scary...'. I am sure that all three of these women are not of such character but they understood who their character was and delivered with bravour and stylistic beauty.
I am not sure Emma is capable of reaching this range in acting. Hermoine was well-acted, but she did very little to develop her skill. If she had been really serious about acting she would have taken more courses in acting.
