British actress Emma Watson has been working in Hollywood for a long time now, taking on some top roles in some big movies along the way. Her latest project sees Emma taking on the role of Belle in the live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and the actress has been talking about a particular scene, which involved a snowball being thrown at her face, something which was not CGI.
Watson was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, when she recalled, "On the day, the guy kept missing me (with the snowball). I would stand there, trying to catch the snowball. He did it a thousand times. I really got hit in the face with a snowball. It wasn't as big as the one (shown in the movie), but I still got smashed in the face with snow!"
She added, "By the end we were so concerned that this poor guy was under so much pressure, you have this huge film set, there's like 300 people in a Disney movie, trying to get the target right, he gets it wrong every time. By the end, you can tell he's so nervous. Lots of it was real. Actually, Bill Condon... really wanted it to look as real as possible, the sets, everything was real. But there were some parts of it that were special effects."
We have been looking forward to seeing Beauty and the Beast for quite some time now and we are still excited to see how this new live action adaptation will compare to the original movie. Beauty and the Beast is set to hit the big screen on March 17 in both the US and the UK.
