哈！艾玛 别担心（放轻松） 你很棒
Ah, Emma, don’t worry about it. You look great!
I’m Reegis and she’s Kelly.
And welcome to our show.
坐这 艾玛 我们唠唠吧
Top up here, Emma. Let’s talk.
This is Emma’s first time in New York, first time in America.
So what happened when you learned you get the part, that must have been the thrill of your life, right?
Yeah, it was… I can’t believe it.
And what did the other kids say at school?
Why you? Why you, Emma Waston?
Emma Watson is in her mid-20s.
She is in the public eye because she has made some films.
But what she has to offer us is an example of positive character traits,
that have nothing really to do with the cinema.
We may benefit from having her example selectively in mind,
in relation to many apparently distant matters.
First and foremost,
Emma Watson is an example of the virtue of dignity.
It’s an honor to be joined by Malala Yousafzai
Emma: Hello, Malala.Malalah: Hello.
It’s quite hard to pin down what we might mean by dignity.
Probably everyone wants more of this quality.
But it feels odd to say so.
That’s because we easily confuse dignity with a couple of other things
that we tend to be very suspicious of.
Coldness and stand-offish pride.
There’s a worry that if someone has dignity,
they’re not gonna be very nice to be around.
But really dignity has to do with being confident of one’s own decency,
and fundamental soundness,
in situations where there’s pressure to loose this confidence and act otherwise.
When participating in a TV chat show,
Emma makes it easily with people
who are at times rather clownish or crass.
I remember, um…
being devastated coming into the studio and saying
Another little girl who
had actually been in films before.
呃……我就像是 嗯…… 就像是我从未想过
Ah, I was like … Oh, I’m never, never gonna get it,
she’s had previous acting experience and she’s…
去他的Judy Danch 她就是个小婊砸~
And that damn Judy Danch is a bitch.
She can play young as well, you know…
But she doesn’t become like them.
因此 她能成为一个很好的倾听者和参与者 但同时她也会保持与生俱来的尊严
So she can be a good support and join in without losing her natural honor.
She’s not cold,
and hence is a good example to have in mind
of how to pull off without strain a crucial everyday diplomatic move.
How to get on well with all sorts of people and yet still be yourself.
I don’t quite understand what you’re saying
We might tend to think that the great lessons we need to learn from others are complicated.
But the lesson is great because it’s basic
because we need it a lot
and so it will by definition look quite simple when stated.
Uhhh…Other than just to say
thank you so much for all of your support and…
And Emma is also good at gratitude.
It would be understandable if a person got sick of being labeled
just one thing: Potter Girl.
And therefore turned against being in the lime light,
becoming a bit hollow and mechanical in acknowledging the thing that had given them so much.
But Emma Watson seems to be genuinely understanding of the role that she has to play for other people.
She will always be, especially for younger girls, Hermione.
She has to be Hermione just as Elizabeth Windsor
has to be the Queen for people.
Even if she has moments of inward frustration
at having to be this character
In this way, Emma is like a good parent.
She knows the character is bigger than her,
就像母亲那样 慈爱 和蔼 善解人意
just as being mummy, someone loving, kind and understanding
It’s more important than being recognized by your children
for being the fuller, more complex
more ambivalent person you really are.
How many journals and dairies you have going?
I think I have thirty.
Emma is good, too, at generosity. She is clever,
but doesn’t humiliate people with the fact
She doesn’t go on Churchill and talk about poststructurelism or the early novels of George Eliot,
two of her acdemic specialisms.
Not because she couldn’t do that very well,
but because it would be unkind.
In fact her generosity is such that it seems strange even to note these possibilities.
I don’t believe for a second that it’s both of your birthday.
She beautifully evades even a hint
that she might have loves and needs and insights
that would leave others bereft,
and feeling abandoned by an old friend from Hogwarts.
Promise you’ll write in the summer. Both of you.
同样地 艾玛的着装风格 购物
In a similar way, Emma is causal in the way she dresses,
where she shops and how she lives.
What does it means when she dresses down,
is she a strange kind of fake? A fake ordinary?
她雇的起私人司机 也能配备私人保镖 她可以时刻看起来像个百万富豪
She could afford a chauffeur, she could have body guards, she could always look a million dollars.
Is she just playing at being like us? More likely
She’s makeing a point about how good it is to have an ordinary life,
she wants something that we already have.
在基督教传统中 上帝之子 天上的王 耶稣也变成了人
In the Christian tradition, Jesus, the son of god and the prince of heaven, becomes a man,
he is born to very ordinary parents.
he does all the ordinary things.
他工作 感受疲劳 感觉孤独
He works, gets tired, feels lonely,
and this is imagined as a consequence of love.
To love, is to want to share in the ordinary existence of another person.
沃森看来就像是没魅力 不出名 从未受邀走过红毯一样
Watson looks like people who are not glamorous, not famous, never invited onto the red carpet,
and she says implicitly, ‘I like how you do things.’
That’s very helpful indeed.
It’s important for us to have people in mind,
who have the option of opting out, who don’t have to live ordinary lives,
but who actually freely choose everyday things.
By so doing, these people teaches to appreciate a little more,
the things which we love less than we should.
I am inviting you to step forward,
to be seen,
and to ask yourself,
if not me, who?
if not now, when?
Thank you very very much.
