Emma Watson Won’t Take Any More Fan Photos
I love me some Emma Watson. She told Vanity Fair that she is done taking pictures with fans – mainly because everything nowadays is so digital, and so trackable, that she doesn’t want that tracking data available about her. HOWEVER – she said she will sit there and answer as many Harry Potter questions for you as humanly possible. She would rather interact than take the picture. She also revealed that she won’t ever talk about her boyfriend in interviews. She realized you can’t have it both ways; you can’t talk about your boyfriend one minute and then ask for privacy the next – it sends mixed signals, and often times, who she is dating becomes directly tied to her work – which she doesn’t want.
