Emma Watson is the bona-fide British babe that first got everyone's
attention when she starred as Harry Potter's best friend Hermione
Granger, the frizzy haired know-it-all.

The world collectively fell in <3 with little Hermione, and
watched Emma Watson grow into an adult in the process of the films.

After ten years of filming, Emma revealed to Porter in this month' issue that she had no idea who she really was after filming had eneded. 

"[I've] spent more than half of my life pretending to be someone else." she said. "While
my contemporaries were dyeing their hair and figuring out who they
were, I was figuring out who Hermione was and how best to portray her.
Now at 25, for the first time in my life, I feel like I have a sense of
self that I'm comfortable with."

"This Emma is "my most authentic self. I don't want
there to be a big separation between the public and the private person.
It's definitely the harder road to tread but without a doubt,
ultimately the most rewarding. It sounds like a ridiculous thing to say,
but I'm very interested in truth, in finding ways to be messy and
unsure and flawed and incredible and great and my fullest self, all
wrapped into one. When you watch the work of someone like actress Emma
Thompson, you feel like you're seeing something true, and I aspire to

Respect Em. She also hits the nail on the head on
some of the ridiculous standards women have to live up to when it comes
to dressing, explaining she is DONE with dressing in things that are
just plain old uncomfortable.

"When I was younger, I remember being told 'no pain no gain,' but
recently my willingness to wear something that makes me freezing cold or
that I can't walk in has changed," she says. "I want to feel fabulous
and comfortable and sexy and strong and beautiful. And if it's making
you uncomfortable, don't do it. It's so sad if you need to go home just
because you need to sit down! Moving forward, I'm prioritizing just
feeling awesome."
