Emma Watson covers the April (??) issue of Elle Australia. So far, we’ve only got the cover. Which is pretty. I’d like to see the full shoot, but I guess I’ll have to wait. This Elle interview is the same one where Emma was talking about looking forward to aging. More quotes have been released and Emma sounds… well, the yoga thing is somewhat interesting. Some highlights:
Emma on her dating rules: “I don’t date people who are famous,” she said, before adding that she also hates the downsides to dating non-famous people. “I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them.”
She’s a board two certified qualified yoga instructor: “People are like, ‘Where are you living? What are you doing?’ I don’t know. I’m too young to decide right now if I want to live here or in New York or in LA or wherever else. And I really struggled for the answers the past three years. I should really know! I should really commit!” So that’s when she became a yoga instructor. “I was like, ‘I need to find a way to always feel safe and at home within myself.’ Because I can never rely on a physical place.”
Getting rid of her good girl image by breaking into a pool: “It was at a hotel, it had a gate around it. My friends turned around and basically I was gone. The next thing they saw was me 7ft up in the air, scaling the fence. I shouldn’t be able to get away with what I’m getting away with.”

The dating thing is confusing. I wonder why she’s so adamant about only dating “civilians”? The mean part of my brain went to “I bet none of the really awesome famous people ask her out,” but in real life, I bet a wide variety of famous and non-famous men hit on her. So, she’s committed to dating civilians, and then she complains about how the press tries to find out stuff about them?
As for the yoga instructor thing… it sounds a little bit vapid to me, but hey, at least it’s something to fall back on. When all else fails, she could teach yoga.
