The 26-year-old actor has appeared in a wealth of different movies since taking on the role of brain box Hermione Granger in the film series in 2001 but says there will be some people who will always link her back to that role, reported Female First.
“It’s deeply irritating. Well. Hang on. Actually no. Let me retract that. I think I used to find it more irritating than I find it now. I used to put a lot more value and a lot more weight on these things but I don’t know if it’s time or experience or just having been in there long enough, but it does irritate me.
Silliness is all it is. You have to accept that there will always be a certain portion of the media who will want to sensationalise and pigeonhole me in a certain way,” Watson said. She also says that headlines sexualising her is “deeply irritating”.
Recently, a number of headlines paid a lot of attention to her love scenes from the trailer of her forthcoming political thriller Colonia. In an interview with The Times, she admitted they have not gone unnoticed, reports independent.co.uk.
She said: “Yes, three and half seconds of nude pictures which were not particularly risqué... It’s deeply irritating.” The Harry Potter star added, “I’m 26 now. I’ve been in 15 films in total and me kissing somebody else shouldn’t be risqué or horrifying, but I think that will continue for a long time.”
