Emma Watson, actress known around the world as “Harry Potter’s” Hermione Granger, has an exciting new role to announce. The 24-year-old told fans this week she will star in a new Disney live-action. “I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast!” she wrote over social media Monday. “It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There’. My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it.” SEE ALSO: Bizarre health fads celebrities follow Though not much is known about the much-anticipated film, Watson is busy preparing for it, sticking to the fitness routine she prefers which includes being comfortable with her body shape. “I’ve accepted my body shape more as I’ve got older,” she said in an interview with Examiner. “I went through a stage of wanting to have that straight-up-and-down model look, but I have curves and hips, and in the end you have to accept yourself as you are.” Emma keeps her celebrity figure through yoga, dancing and playing tennis, among other things. She indicated that it took a long time for her to understand that being rail-thin wasn’t the same as being healthy, and she expressed concern that so many young girls struggle with body ideals. “It makes me sad to hear girls constantly putting themselves down,” she said. “We have these unbelievably high expectations of ourselves, when actually we’re human beings and out bodies have a function. We say that the pressure is coming from men, but actually it’s from each other. I think women feel so much pressure these days and it can turn us against each other. But we really damage our own confidence when we put ourselves down, so I try not to.” As for her diet, Watson knows how important it is to pair nutrition with fitness. She told The Celebrity Workout her diet revolves around eating what she likes–with a few golden rules. The “Harry Potter” star keeps added sugar, saturated fat and salt at a minimum, while loading up on fresh fruits, vegetables, leans meats and healthy salads. She indicated that because she loves food and loves to cook, she eats “nice meals” and just modifies her exercise routine to match.
