Emma Watson had an interview and a stunning photoshoot with British Vogue, and she talked about her fears for reaching the milestone and the pressure of having a picture-perfect life. She said that she never believed the whole “I’m happy single” thing, and even though it took her a long time, she says that she’s very happy being single, and she calls it “being self-partnered”.
The actress, who is due to turn 30 in April, also discussed her fears of turning the magic number “due to the b****y influx of subliminal messaging”, which implies that a woman must have a husband, a baby, and a stable career by the age of 30.
She said that she was like “Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? It’s not a big deal”, and now, when she’s 29, she’s like “Oh my.. I feel so stressed and anxious”.
She realized that she feels that way because of the influx of subliminal messaging around that you’re not in some secure and stable place in your life and career if you have not built a home, have a husband, or have a baby at the age of 30.
Even though Watson insists that she’s happy being “self-partnered”, she was recently spotted kissing a mystery man outside a London bakery recently.
However, her new term seems to be a nod towards Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin’s famous catchphrase “conscious uncoupling”, which was used to describe their divorce.
The next step in Emma’s career is her starring role as Meg in the anticipated adaptation of the novel ‘Little Women’. She plays the eldest of the March sisters, who contend with societal pressures, money worries, and romantic escapades during the American Civil War.
Meg’s sister, Jo, is played by Saoirse Ronan, and Watson noted that she’s proud to play Meg and portray her own dreams on screen.
