I think the number one thing that I find important is the importance of honesty with your friends and your parents, if you can be. But I think that telling people how you really feel, being who you truly are, being safe and taking care of yourself is the most important thing.

“My boyfriend [Nicholas Hoult] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody…We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass.’ I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”

'It’s called the impostor syndrome. It’s almost like the better I do, the more my feeling of inadequacy actually increases, because I’m just going, Any moment, someone’s going to find out I’m a total fraud, and that I don’t deserve any of what I’ve achieved. I can’t possibly live up to what everyone thinks I am and what everyone’s expectations of me are. It’s weird—sometimes [success] can be incredibly validating, but sometimes it can be incredibly unnerving and throw your balance off a bit, because you’re trying to reconcile how you feel about yourself with how the rest of the world perceives you.’ - Emma Watson

The strangest part about being famous is you don’t get to give first impressions anymore. Everyone already has an impression of you before you meet them.

"I like languages. I like working on different accents. I speak English, French and Spanish. I’d love to learn more but I think, as you get older—not that I’m old, I’m 27—but I think your brain is a bit slower. I’ve been trying to learn Italian a little bit but I’m terrible at it. And Hungarian. After three years in Hungary I picked up a few words but not enough."

For me, in order to become a successful performer, it’s taking hard work, perseverance and most of all passion, because you want it to be perfect.

Most people are really nice but some stare, like you’re some kind of zoo exhibit and not a real person with real feelings. Even when you take away all the glamour and attention and premieres and everything, it still comes down to the fact that I’m acting.
