Emma Watson, who is famed for her staunch feminist views and activism, discussed growing up in the spotlight and her disregard for being prized with an Oscar.

Emma soared to fame in 2001 playing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter. It seems Beauty And The Beast has been Emma's true coming-of-age film, as she attributes the blockbuster for helping her become 'a woman' - in her transition from Hermione to Belle.

She explained: 'When I finished (Beauty And The Beast), it kind of felt like I had made that transition into being a woman on-screen'.

She is currently blazing the promotional trail with the live action take (right) on 1991 fairy tale cartoon classic (left) Beauty And The Beast.

While Emma is currently promoting Beauty And The Beast (left), she is said to have missed out on the role in Oscar winning picture La La Land (right).

It was reported last month by New York Post that Emma missed out on the prize-winning role of aspiring actress Mia due to the fact she was 'too demanding'.

According to the report, 'Watson was offered the lead female role, but she initially wouldn't commit. Then she began making all these crazy demands, like rehearsals for the film must be done in London — for a film called La La Land!'

The insider added: 'They jumped through hoops to make it work with her, but she just didn't feel the film was right for her.'

Emma claimed she did not care about winning an Oscar - after reportedly missing out on the role of Mia in La La Land, which won Emma Stone an Academy Award. Could have been you?
