Emma Watson Marks Her Thirty-Third Birthday With the Most Personal Message

year ago

After a long absence from social media, the Harry Potter actress returned with a powerful post for her thirty-third birthday. Watson gave some fascinating updates as she reflected on her life as of late. She even shared unexpected insight into her struggles and talked about her vulnerabilities since stepping away from the spotlight.

A long post from the heart...

The star shared with her over 70 million Instagram fans a stunning black and white photo of herself along with a beautiful message. She opened the post by acknowledging, ’’This is 33. Holy moly.’’

She then revealed, ’’I stepped away from my life,’’ before starting to list the many productive things she did during her time off, including learning to surf, riding horses, playing golf, cooking, and doing lots of therapy. The beautiful actress also added that she adopted a dog named Sofia, who she described as an ’’angel.’’

As she carried on, sharing her list of achievements, Watson noted, ’’We filmed a Harry Potter reunion. I said goodbye to my Grandma and Grandpa. I retraced my steps.’’ She also shared, ’’I started a women’s environmental investment fund.’’

The beloved actress also opened up about feeling ’’sad and really pissed off about a lot of things.’’
But on the bright side, she noted, ’’I learned more about love and being a woman.’’

Watson continued with her long list of exciting updates, including that she eats green now, that she directed her first commercial, and that she started making websites.

The Harry Potter star concluded her post by thanking her fans who ’’were so pivotal in helping me arrive at where and who I am now,’’ as well as many close people to her, including her brother who helps her ’’find the most challenging things, with time, incredibly funny.’’

We rarely hear about her personal life.


This long, detailed post is even more precious given that Watson doesn’t often give details about her private matters.

Moreover, the 33-year-old specifically avoids talking about her romantic life and once noted in an interview, ’’I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus.’’ She added, ’’I would hate anyone that I was with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.’’
