In her new movie Help, the actress plays Skeeter Phelan, an ambitious young writer who suffers from low self-esteem in the beginning of the film.
Emma says the role made her question how she defines attractiveness.
“I think at the beginning, understandably, [Skeeter] is deeply affected by her appearance and her mother’s disapproval of it,” she said.
“[Skeeter] was lucky enough to have [her maid] Constantine, who reminded her that she was beautiful and smart and could choose her life.
“Confidence is the only key [to beauty]. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ — not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves.”
Well said Emma!! 🙂
