EMMA Watson has come a long way!

The actress hadn’t acted professionally before she landed the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films aged 9 — so she wasn’t that confident about her career.

“I’d done two tiny plays when I was, like, 6 and 8, but I wasn’t driven to act,” she said.

“I wasn’t doing Oscar acceptance speeches into a hairbrush. I took a Beanie Baby to my first Harry Potter audition.

“After Harry Potter, all that mattered was university.

“I didn’t even know if I wanted to be an actress.

“It took me a year or two to find my confidence. You can see that by the choices I’m making, from Sofia Coppola [The Bling Ring], then jumping to a biblical epic [Noah].

“There are no restrictions on me, which is a relief.”

Malaysia and Indonesia have banned the biblical epic Noah, joining other Muslim nations in vetoing the Hollywood movie because of its visual depiction of the prophet.

Film censors in both countries said today that the portrayal of the ark-building prophet by Russell Crowe was against Islamic laws. Depictions of any prophet are shunned in Islam to avoid worship of a person rather than God.

“The film Noah is not allowed to be screened in this country to protect the sensitivity and harmony in Malaysia’s multi-racial and multi-religious community,” Film Censorship Board chairman Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid said in a statement.

Malay Muslims make up about 60% of Malaysia’s 30 million people, and Christians about 9%.

In the world’s most populous Muslim nation, the head of Indonesia’s censor board Muchlis Paeni said the plot of the film directed by Darren Aronofsky contradicted both the Koran and the Bible.

“We have to reject Noah to be screened here,” Mr Paeni said. “We don’t want a film that could provoke controversies and negative reactions.”

The Indonesian Council of Ulama, the country’s most influential Islamic body, welcomed the move, saying films that could corrupt religious teachings should be outlawed. Many Indonesians condemned the ban on social media.
“The decision was very regrettable, so sad,” film-maker Joko Anwar said on Twitter, warning it was a backwards step for Indonesia.

Much of the Muslim world, including the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain, has already banned the film, which is a box-office hit in the US. Some Christian conservatives also have complained of its inaccurate portrayal of the biblical account of the flood.

Paramount Pictures added a disclaimer to its marketing material, saying “artistic licence has been taken” in telling the story.

The Koran mentions only 25 prophets by name, including Noah. Muslims believe that Noah, who is referred to in Arabic as Nuh, built his ark after God charged him to do it as people in his community refused to worship God alone.

While there are differences between the biblical and Koranic story of Noah, both mention a terrible flood and Noah’s vessel saving a pair of each species of animal.

On the pressures of looking perfect:

As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the aging process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.

… says Emma.
