While on a press tour for her new movie Beauty and the Beast, Emma Watson was greeted with some very special guests in an interview for Buzzfeed…kittens!
The actress sat down and played with an adorable group of kittens while she answered fan questions regarding her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast, current issues regarding feminism, and even her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise.
One fan asked what life advice she would give her future daughter, and Emma responded with, “I would want her to know that she is a force to be reckoned with and never to underestimate her own power.”
She continued, “Sometimes particularly young girls feel like their voice doesn’t matter or what they have to say doesn’t really matter and I think I would want her to know that it does.”
When asked if Belle and Hermione had anything in common, Emma said, “They’re super smart but they also have this incredible empathy and compassion and ability to see beyond things and be non-judgmental.”
At the end of the interview, Emma didn’t want to say goodbye to the kittens. “No I don’t want it to be over. Please don’t let it be over,” she said. We know if we were her, we wouldn’t want to say goodbye to the kittens either!
