Watson appears on the cover of the January 2015 issue of Elle South Africa magazine. She talks about the United Nations and feminism.
Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It’s not prescriptive, it’s not dogmatic. All we are here to do is give you a choice.
The actress appears on the cover of the April 2014 issue of Elle magazine. She talks about how she is jealous of other actresses.

Watson appears on the cover of the October 2013 issue of The Edit magazine. She talks about the Green Carpet Challenge and prepping for the red carpet.
Getting ready for an event can feel like a lot of pressure. You have to consider, ‘Will people see up my skirt? If a flash goes off, can you see through this?’ So I’ll do a test sitting, a test standing… It’s nerve-wracking. People really scrutinize… On the red carpet, I’m usually in so much discomfort – my shoes are uncomfortable, I can’t breathe in the dress. I don’t compromise like that in my everyday style.

It sounds stupid, or completely unbelievable, but that was when I really realized that I was famous. There are still days when I deal with it horribly and there are days when I deal with it really well.
Watson appears on the cover of the June/July 2013 issue of W magazine. She talks about her childhood, her character in Bling Bling, her Wardrobe in Bling Bling.
Who wouldn’t love to go to work in Uggs and very low-slung tracksuit bottoms? The iconic detail of Nicki is her tramp stamp. It’s a lotus flower, a Buddhist-like symbol just above her butt crack. Really classy! (Laughs) And at one point I told the costumer designer, ‘You can see my bra strap in this top; shouldn’t we pin it?’ And she said, ‘No, sweetie—Nicki is all about her bra strap showing.’ I was like, right, okay, different mind-set.
Watson appears on the cover of the May 2013 issue of British GQ magazine. She talks about her character in Bling Bling, choosing to do Bling Bling, and a role she doesn’t want to play.
Really I was open-minded about doing anything, but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I’d never get out again.
Watson appears on the cover of the October 2012 issue of Glamour magazine. She talks about kissing her boyfriend, her Lena Dunham obsession, and growing out her hair.
I have to for roles. But if I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever. Of course, men like long hair. There’s no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, “Why did you do that? That’s such an error.” And I was like, “Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!” I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair—I felt really good in my own skin.”

Watson appears on the cover of the Fall 2012 issue of T magazine. She talks about why she didn’t do other films during Harry Potter, her parents’ advice, and fame.
If I went to somewhere busy, I wouldn’t last very long. I can’t go to a museum, I’ll last 10 or 15 minutes in a museum. The problem is that when one person asks for a photograph, then someone sees a flash goes off, then everyone else sort of . . . it’s sort of like a domino effect. And then very quickly the situation starts to get out of control to a point where I can’t manage it on my own.
Watson appears on the cover of the August 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK magazine. She talks about why she left school, getting angry while acting, and her self-image.
I feel if I have to work out four hours a day, and count the calories of everything I put in my mouth, and have Botox at 22, and obsess about how I look the whole time, I will go mad, I will absolutely lose it.
Watson appears on the cover of the August 2011 issue of Seventeen magazine. She talks about relationships, playing hard to get, and which Harry Potter co-star she has a crush on.
For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush. He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.
Watson appears on the cover of the July 2011 issue of Vogue magazine. She talks about experimenting with Harry Potter makeup, Daniel Radcliffe, and balancing education and work.
I have felt for the last ten years I have had this battle; I’ve been fighting so hard to have an education. It’s been this uphill struggle. I was Warner Bros.’ pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult. I just realized at one point that I can’t fight everything. I have to move in the direction of it—and go with it.
Watson appears on the cover of the December 2010 issue of Marie Claire magazine. She talks about her new cropped hair cut and growing up grounded.

Watson appears on the cover of the November 2010 issue of Seventeen Mexico magazine. She talks about people liking because of her fame, a typical day in her life, and her fashion line.

Watson appears on the cover of the August 2009 issue of Teen Vogue magazine. She talks about her personal style, her romance in Harry Potter, and attending college.
I’ve been saying that I wanted to go to university since I was eleven, so if they didn’t let me, I’d be pretty upset. I just want to keep it private [my university choice] for as long as I can. I probably sound like a paranoid nut, but I’m doing this because I want to be normal. I really want anonymity. I want to do it properly, like everyone else. As long as I don’t walk in, and see, like, Harry Potter posters everywhere, I’ll be fine.
Watson appears on the cover of the May 2009 issue of Interview magazine. She talks about her biggest spending splurge.
I got myself a laptop. I took my dad to Tuscany. He works so hard, my dad, so I rang up his secretary and asked when he was free, and I booked us a holiday. What else? Oh, I got myself a car… I got my license last year, and I love the Prius, even if my friends say it’s ugly. They say I drive a brick. And, to be fair, it’s not the prettiest car on the road, but it’s good for the environment. It’s sensible and boring—like me.
