The actress opens up about the pressure of that term.
Emma Watson is one of the most successful actresses in the business, but one thing that scares her is most is the pressure that comes along with being a role model.
“When people call me a role model it puts the fear of God into me because I feel like I’m destined to fail,” Emma tells Entertainment Weekly.
Emma is a strong advocate for women’s rights, so it’s no surprise that she’s a role model to a lot of young girls everywhere. But the Beauty and the Beast star also acknowledges that she isn’t perfect and offers great advice for anyone looking to overcome their mistakes. “I think my mistakes have made me much stronger,” Watson said. “It’s nice to know that things don’t ultimately break you; that you need to go there to know.”
