Master of Deception and Spin?


Emma Watson is the master of deception and spin


This is the title of Echee's last post. I hope Echee is OK, by the way. I have been a pain in the ass on his Blog for over a year, but always thought Echee was a decent guy.

Anyway, I am not convinced Emma is a 'master' of deception and spin.


Does Emma sometimes contradict herself? 
Yes

Does Emma sometimes say silly, inane things on Twitter and in interviews (mostly in women's magazines)?
Yes

Is something funny going with Emma's education?
Yes

Emma, Logan, and Ezra (the so called new trio) have done a lot of promotional things for Perks in recent weeks. 

Is this all some big act? Is it all fake just to promote the movie so it makes more money?


I don't think so. I don't see it that way.

I think Emma genuinely likes how the movie came out and is proud of how she did playing Sam. Emma, Logan and Ezra seem to actually be friends. There is an authentic feel to how they act around each other.  I don't think the 3 of them are just pretending to like each other to promote the movie.

When Emma hugged those guys on Anderson Cooper, I don't think it flashed through her mind, "Oh shit, I have to hug another pathetic douche bag fan!, Jesus, the things I do for my career."

I think it is the exact opposite. Emma seems to like hugging people. She seems to like people in general and people seem to like her. I don't see that she is some mega diva bitch who no one likes working  with. 

I don't see Emma as some coldly calculating, manipulative, "master of deception and spin".  I think she bumbles her way through the media game sometimes. She makes it up as she goes along. 

In conclusion, Emma is a little bit fake. There is some image spin going on, but I think she is mostly the real deal. 

I think she is goofy and nerdy sometimes. She exaggerates the importance of things like the damn tunnel. When she says she cried half way through watching Perks the first time, her eyes were probably a bit watery. Maybe more hyperbole.

But no one is the world is that big of a 'master' of deception and spin. The majority of what we see of Emma is genuine in my opinion. Some people read too much into quotes from Elle and Glamour and Seventeen and then over analyze things from there.

Ok,first of all I want Echee back so bad!!!! I hope he comes back ASAP.

Second,Emma has been doing LOTS of promotion for perks considering it's such a small moviw.

Anyways I noticed during interviews and magazin articles (those including with ezra and logan )she gets the most amount of attention out if them. which is not fair. Ezra did the best performance compared to Logan and Emma (based on reviews I read) He really stood out. you can tell by watching the trailer only. Logan came second and Emma was a close third. And yet the spotlight is always on Emma. I think Its not fair and I believe that Logan and Ezra are secretly bummed about it.

Btw,First anon well said. The movie got good reviews...true but that doesn't mean she did a great job in it. Sam was a pretty easy charactor to play. She was just a slightly more slutty vetsion of Herwhinie. Lol the loons have already started oscar buzz for her...lolz

It is starting to sound like Emma did better than I thought she would, but I doubt she will get any awards. Sounds to me like Ezra was the real standout in Perks.

Me too. Hope he is alright. I think there is a chance that he might have computer problems and maybe can't afford another one right away.

He said he was going to be away for a bit, though. Maybe he never came back from where he went.

Someone should start a new blog about her. I can't believe she is going to get away with abusing the education system to make herself look smart.
It's disgusting.

I just came to know about your blog. It looks like you haven't posted anything since September 2012. Why? I really like your blog, as do many other people, I'm sure.
