As the Harry Potter star approaches her 30th birthday this coming April, she’s looking back on how “tough” 2019 was because she “had all these ideas” about what life was supposed to look like at this point:
“I was like, ‘Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal…’ Cut to 29, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious.’ And I realise it’s because there is suddenly this bloody influx of subliminal messaging around. If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out… There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.”
One thing she does have to look forward to this year is the release of Little Women, which comes out on Christmas day. The Brown University alum, who is starring as Margaret “Meg” March in Greta Gerwig‘s adaptation alongside Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, and Meryl Streep, opened up about the role:
“With Meg’s character, her way of being a feminist is making the choice – because that’s really, for me anyway, what feminism is about. Her choice is that she wants to be a full-time mother and wife. To Jo [Saoirse Ronan], being married is really some sort of prison sentence. But Meg says, ‘You know, I love him [John Brooke, who is played by James Norton] and I’m really happy and this is what I want. And just because my dreams are different from yours, it doesn’t mean they’re unimportant.’”
As for romance IRL, she’s living the single life! But there’s a different term she likes to use instead:
“I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel. I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”
Will U start referring to yourself as self-partnered, Perezcious readers? Sound OFF in the comments with your thoughts!!
