How did Emma get connected with her father?

Since Emma was just five when her parents got divorced and used to get to see her father only on the weekend, that scared her because it was fundamental to her relationship with her father. 

Her father was fond of reading her books on long car drives and before bed, and it was from there her interest in acting emerged. 

It was their shared love of books that kept them connected throughout. During an interview, Emma said that it was books that gave her a way to connect with her father, which she described to be her most precious and treasured moments. 

She added, remembering him reading to her before bed and how he used to do all the different voices. Books were her connection to the outside world growing up in the film sets.

As a parent, she, along with her then-husband, did not have any idea to protect her celebrity daughter

In an interview with Marie Claire, Emma shared how her parents wanted to protect her but had no idea how to. 

According to her, she never felt anything to rebel and did things in her way because she always had way too much freedom. 

She was just 10 when she had her job, and by the age of 17 or 18, she was already living on her own, making money, and traveling around the world. 

Having too much freedom was sometimes hard, she said. She added that her parents wanted to protect her, but they had no idea how to, so she had to learn as she went by, making her own mistakes.  

The journey of her acting from totally unknown and never acting professionally to landing a role in a major movie and being popular was so sudden that she had no time to work things out. 

In the same interview, she said she would never have forgiven her parents if they had made her turn down that opportunity. She added, saying she loved performing. 

It was something that made her feel alive. Having known it’s scary, she also feels that it is part of it and, at the same time, is important to have that extra adrenaline to have extra zing.
