While Emma Watson has grown up in front of movie cameras thanks to her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films she says posing for still camera shots is still unnerving.
Watson recently told i-D magazine:
“Being myself is a lot of pressure. I feel a lot more insecure being Emma than if I take on a character.”
The actress says her nerves were at ease during her i-D spread thanks to Mariano Vivanco who shot the star in a French maid outfit.
Speaking of Mariano she said:
“This is the second time I’ve worked with Mariano. He’s like my naughty big brother. We do our own thing, leave the world behind and go off to create and invent stuff together.”
According to Watson the photographer taught her how to model and “He’s been very supportive of my career and definitely very involved in the decision for Lancôme to take me on.”
Watson says that during the shoot:
“I wore a little bit of everything for the shoot, including the beautiful Azzaro dress that I ended up wearing for the Lancôme event. Mariano was going crazy, chasing me around the garden, while I was pulling on different dresses and turning every which way.”
Watson has done a lot of growing up right in front of our eyes, I for one am glad to see that she’s stayed grounded and very loyal to the people who she actually wants to work with, giving credit where credit is definitely due.
