Why Was Harry Potter Star Emma Watson “Nervous” Making Perks of Being a Wallflower? (via eonline)
Emma Watson is ready to leave Harry Potter behind.
No, she’s not hating on the megasuccessful movie franchise that brought her fame and fortune, but…
She can’t wait for Potter fans to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a coming-of-age drama that marks her first starring role post-Harry.
“I think Harry Potter fans will love it because it has so much heart, like the Harry Potter stories do,” Watson, 22, told me yesterday at the MTV Movie Awards. “I feel like it’s the perfect transition from Harry Potter to kind of a more adolescent movie. It’s a little bit of an older tone. It’s darker.”
In the flick, Logan Lerman plays a shy high school freshman who is befriended by two seniors, Sam (Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller).
In one scene, Watson performs a dance routine from The Rocky Horror Picture Show in skimpy lingerie. “I was very nervous to that stuff,” she said. “It was tough.”
She was also nervous about doing her first American accent. “I really wanted to get that right,” Watson said. “But Logan and Ezra were very instructive. If I ever said anything that sounded weird, they were like, ‘That’s not right!’ and we would fix it.”
Costar Johnny Simmons said the movie might never have been made without Watson attached. “She read the book and became obsessed with it,” said Simmons, 25. “She heard they were making the movie and approached them about it. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her.”
And all the books you’ve read have been read by other people. And all the songs you’ve loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that’s pretty to you is pretty to other people. And you know that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing “unity”.
It’s like when you are excited about a girl and you see a couple holding hands, and you feel so happy for them. And other times you see the same couple, and they make you so mad. And all you want is to always feel happy for them because you know that if you do, then it means you’re happy, too.“
--Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
‘Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ Trailer:
Five Things We Still Want To See
It isn’t their first (Sam gives Charlie his first smooch earlier in the story), but it is their most intense. As the two discuss the nature of love (“We accept the love we think we deserve,” Charlie tells Sam), the pair finally disclose their true feelings for each other, which leads to a steamy, yet ultimately distressing moment in Sam’s room, which Lerman didn’t seem to mind. “It happened in front of a crew, and people were there, and we did it a few times. And that was it,” Lerman told MTV News at the Movie Awards. “It’s kind of odd when you’re doing it for a movie. It’s kind of weird. She’s cool. It wasn’t as awkward as it could have been. It’s Emma Watson, so I’m a lucky guy.”
“Perks” boasts a stellar supporting cast, including Dylan McDermott and Kate Walsh, but we’re eager to see more of “Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev, who had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the trailer. Dobrev plays Charlie’s older sister Candace, who’s hiding her own secret about her boyfriend, and we’re itching to see what she does with the role.
