Watson told Jimmy Kimmel:

“On the day, the guy kept missing me,” she said. “We did it like 1,000 times.”

When questioned by Kimmel about whether it was painful, Watson shared that if there was any sensation, it was her empathy for the individual tasked with striking her during filming that stood out more to her.

Emma Watson expressed her genuine concern as she observed that, as time passed, they could see the immense pressure weighing down on the young man. On the sprawling Disney movie set, filled with around 300 people all striving for perfection, he consistently faltered in hitting the mark. As the production continued, it became increasingly evident that his nerves were getting the better of him.

Emma Watson appeared on the verge of joining this group, to the extent that director David Yates received cautionary indications that the actress might not return for another Harry Potter installment and was even contemplating departing from the franchise altogether.

Yates disclosed that the primary factor behind this decision was Watson’s unwavering commitment to her education, which she held above all else, and her uncertainty about sacrificing it for the sake of the franchise. The overwhelming fame that accompanied her role compounded this dilemma, as Watson struggled to acclimate herself to the spotlight. In addition to these challenges, Watson openly admitted to experiencing a sense of isolation during her time working on these films.

Beauty and the Beast is available for streaming on Disney+.
