Emma Watson Doesn't Understand the 'Male Gender'
The Harry Potter star opens up about men, loyalty and difficult times.
Emma Watson needs little help from her friends when it comes to understanding men.
“When I was on the set with Daniel [Radcliffe] and Rupert [Grint], it was normally me who went to the guys with the questions about guys because I don’t pretend to understand the male gender,” Watson tells Parade.com.
“I’m just like, ‘What is going on here? What should I be doing? I don’t understand,’ ” the actress, 20, says. “So they’ve helped me out a bit and been like my protective big brothers.”
While the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I star is currently single, she admits to being “fiercely loyal,” much like her character Hermione Granger.
“I really empathize with people and I can’t help but take care of them and protect them, sometimes in a kind of unhealthy way,” says Watson, 20. “I’m definitely a caretaker. I have to really pull myself back on the reins and say, ‘Put yourself first. Love yourself first.'”
Just because she’s said to be worth $32 million doesn’t mean Watson hasn t struggled with self-doubt.
“I’ve had dark times – this voice in my head that makes me pretty hard on myself,” says the Brown University sophomore. “I really don’t let anything go. I’ve been learning that I have to try and be a bit kinder and take care of myself a bit better.”
