British actress Emma Watson appears on the September cover of Vogue U.K. with the words, “Voice of a generation,” emblazoned under her name.
In 2014 Watson became a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, giving a speech that resulted in the #HeForShe campaign. Part of her speech was directed at men as a whole, saying, “Gender equality is your issue, too.”
Watson talked about her speech in the new Vogue interview, saying, “I now feel this sense of peace. People say that I’m different since I did it.”
While feeling confident in her role as a Goodwill Ambassador, she admits that she tends to shy away from recognition for her acting.
She elaborated, saying to Vogue, “When I was younger, I just did it. I just acted. It was just there. So now when I receive recognition for my acting, I feel incredibly uncomfortable. I tend to turn in on myself. I feel like an imposter … it was just something I did.”
Watson began her career in the Harry Potter series as the head of the class wizarding student Hermione Granger. Since the Potter films have come to an end, she’s starred in movies like 2012’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower and 2013’s The Bling Ring.
She’s confirmed to star in 2016’s tech-driven drama The Circle, opposite Tom Hanks. We look forward to seeing her in the Disney live action remake of Beauty and the Beast as Belle, scheduled for 2017.
