Emma Watson simply couldn’t resist the chance to sit down with an armful of kittens recently as she answered a string of questions from her adoring fans.
“I’m here with Buzzfeed. I’m playing with tiny cute kittens — my day is made,” she said while taking part in “The Kitten Interview”.
The actress, who oohed and awed her way through the Q&A, chatted about her latest film “Beauty and the Beast”, and of course, her favourite topic, feminism.
“We think that we live in a post-feminist society, and we do not,” she said, speaking about the biggest problem facing young women today. “We’re told we don’t need feminism anymore, that we have the vote, that, like, we’re all good. And I think, actually, that’s incredibly disconcerting because then, when young women move into the world and they realize, ‘Oh, why am I not being paid the same, why am I being treated differently?’ And they start to blame themselves because they don’t understand that they’re part of a historic pattern, they’re part of a much larger system which is kind of working a little bit against them.”
As for the “#1 life lesson” Watson would pass down to her future daughter, the 26-year-old star offers up some compelling advice for young girls. “I would want her to know that she is a force to be reckoned with and never to underestimate her own power,” she says. “Sometimes, particularly young girls feel like their voice doesn’t matter, and what they have to say doesn’t really matter, and I think I would want her to know that it does.”
Watson somehow manages to keep her composure as five adorable kittens climb all over her. “I want them all,” screamed Emma Watson — and so do we!
