Emma would like some ‘pep talk’ from Michelle

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood star Emma Wat­son (be­low) says that for­mer US First Lady Michelle Obama (right) would be her dream house guest be­cause she could give her a “pep talk.”

The 26-year-old Bri­tish ac­tor thinks the 53-yearold could give her some great ad­vice. “Just for a quick chat, a quick pep talk. That would be great,” says Wat­son, who is one of the am­bas­sadors for the United Na­tion’s HeForShe out­reach move­ment.

Mean­while, talk­ing about why she be­lieves her char­ac­ter of Hermione Granger is a strong fem­i­nist one in the Harry Pot­ter films, Wat­son says: “Hermione was that per­fect ex­am­ple of turn­ing on its head this ini­tial prej­u­dice that she gets. She finds a way to wield her in­tel­li­gence and be­come re­ally the leader in this group of two other boys and that’s kind of the role that she as­sumes.” The ac­tor added: “Harry is much more in­tu­itive. Ron is just along for the ride. Hermione is the one with the plan. She’s in con­trol. I think some­how that gave other women per­mis­sion to feel that they were al­lowed to take up space. What is so fun­da­men­tally beau­ti­ful about Hermione is her loy­alty to that group of friends. She’s re­ally the glue that keeps that

trio to­gether.”
