How will Emma Watson go from wizarding witch to wallflower? Does she have a spell up her sleeve?
Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev called into On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about their new film “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” while they were 33,000 feet in the air! The cast was flying from the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of their film.
Emma on “Perks of Being a Wallflower” premiere in Toronto
“Um, yeah we got a standing ovation. It was like, it was crazy. Everyone stood up, I couldn’t believe it, it was absolutely amazing. Um yeah, it’s amazing. We’re getting such good buzz like so many people showed up, it was really really really exciting.”
Emma on the Tone of “Perks of Being a Wallflower”
“This is like the third time I’ve seen the movie and I still cry, I had to run out and try and like fix my face before I had to come back on stage for Q&A cause I was like such a wreck. Definitely, the movie is definitely an emotional roller coaster. It’s a happy sad ending. It is a happy ending.”
Nina on Emma’s response to “50 Shades of Grey” Rumors
“He wants me to ask you about the rumors of whether or not you’re going to be playing Anastacia in “50 Shades of Grey?” What is your comment? She’s laughing a little bit nervously, like I’m sure everybody was when they read those books.” When we asked Emma is she could confirm the rumors that she would play Anastacia and Ryan Gosling would play Christian Grey she responded, “I would be far more interested if he would be playing Christian Grey!”
Nina on the Toronto Film Festival
“Um it was it was amazing, honestly the energy in the theatre, people, people were really upset by the movie and touched by the movie and they laughed and they cried and it’s really, really special. I can’t for everyone to see it because I feel like they’re going to love it.
Nina on the premise of “Perks of Being a Wallflower”
“Yes, yes it’s a coming of age film, but it’s one that everyone can relate to, everyone’s gone through it. Doesn’t matter if it was the 90’s or ten years ago or now. It’s just a story about real people and it’s not like Hollywood’s typical depiction about the clichés, it’s about the misfit toys… And there’s a lot more misfit toys in the world than there are you know, jocks and cheerleaders”
Nina on co-star Logan Lerman
“There’s actually a crazy story about how Logan got to, or didn’t get to the Toronto premiere. He forgot his passport in LA, so he had to go to Buffalo and walk across the border. Then they drove him to Toronto from there. It was quite dramatic, but you know what, he rallied and he is so fantastic in this film and such a beautiful nuance performance and we’re really glad that he came and he’s gonna be there tonight in spirit for sure.”
