Emma Watson isn’t taking a selfie with you. And it’s perfectly understandable.
In the March issue of Vanity Fair, Watson explains why taking “selfies” with fans won’t be something she’s doing anymore.
Frankly, she could tell us she’s decided to run over the elderly with her car and we’d all be like “We understand.”, because it’s Emma Watson. But this makes sense.
She tells Vanity Fair, “For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data. I’ll say, ‘I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can’t do a picture’ ”—and much of the time people don’t bother. “I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact. When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone’s freakin’ week? Children I don’t say no to, for example.”
