New and a bit alarming. Who'd have ever thought that this could be? True that she's no Prince Charming. But there's something in Emma Watson that we simply didn't see—until this afternoon. As it turns out, what we did not see inside Emma Watson was her burning desire to play Belle in a live action version of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
