Emma Watson Has Revealed Why She Won't Take Photos With Fans

Emma Watson has revealed she no longer takes photos with fans because she worries that people will upload them to social media and she will be tracked down.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, she said: "For me, it's the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they've created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 metres. They can see what I'm wearing and who I'm with.

"I just can't give that tracking dat ... I'll say, 'I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can't do a picture'."

Emma also added that she's very careful to ensure she keeps her boyfriend out of the limelight and refused to talk about him during the interview, saying: "I want to be consistent: I can't talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can't have it both ways."

Sounds fair enough to me. The woman is entitled to a private life, isn't she? Just because we've seen her in films doesn't mean she has to be up for posing whenever anyone asks. I mean, can you imagine the amount of requests for selfies she gets every single day? It's got to be hard to nip to Spar to pick up some toilet roll when you're one of the cast of Harry Potter.

However, Emma also went on to say that there were some exceptions to her rule: "I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact. When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone's freakin' week? Children I don't say no to, for example."

While Emma might shy away from the camera her Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe enjoys having a bit of fun with paps. He told Jay Leno and Graham Norton that he would wear the same clothes so photographers wouldn't be able to sell the photos on, because they always looked old.

He said: "I would wear the same outfit every single time with different T-shirts underneath but I would wear the same jacket and zip it up so they couldn't see what I was wearing underneath, and the same hat," he said.

"So they could take photos for six months but it would look like the same day. They became un-publishable, which was hilarious because there's nothing better than seeing the paparazzi get really frustrated."

He also managed to prove what we knew all along, that fashion pages are bollocks. He said: "There was one hysterical moment when my 'stage door outfit', as it was called, ended up on, like, one of the fashion bits in the newspaper, which is like an old dirty hat and a jacket that hasn't been washed in ages and somehow it got in there. I was very proud."
