Emma Watson, who is releasing a premium gin, talked about how she feels regarding the concept of alcohol
Harry Potter fame Emma Watson got candid about intimate details from her life and shared that alcohol was never a ‘forbidden fruit’ for her as her father allowed her to indulge in wine from a young age. The recent revelation comes as a surprise as Emma has always been secretive about her private life.
The 33-year-old Harry Potter star, who often takes brief breaks from social media and the spotlight, has returned for the launch of a new product with her brother Alex Watson. Emma Watson, who is releasing a premium gin, talked about how she feels regarding the concept of alcohol. "I was quite surprised when other children were very excited about the idea of getting their hands on alcohol," she told Financial Times' magazine How To Spend It.
"Dad had been giving me water with wine at lunch since I was a child. So I was quite confused when I was a teenager and everyone thought alcohol was this forbidden fruit.," Watson added.
She also shared that her break from acting has been a profound change in her life. "I wasn't very happy, if I'm being honest. I think I felt a bit caged. The thing I found really hard was that I had to go out and sell something that I really didn't have very much control over," Emma Watson revealed.
"To stand in front of a film and have every journalist be able to say, 'How does this align with your viewpoint?' It was very difficult to have to be the face and the spokesperson for things where I didn’t get to be involved in the process. I was held accountable in a way that I began to find really frustrating because I didn't have a voice, I didn't have a say," she said.
Watson felt, "And I started to realise that I only wanted to stand in front of things where if someone was going to give me flak about it, I could say, in a way that didn't make me hate myself."
Recently, Emma returned from her social media hiatus by sharing a series of posts and made sure the fans were caught up with what she was doing in her downtime.
