"It's very exciting that people are starting to see me in a different way. It means that they're allowing me the space to grow and develop and reincarnate myself. I've been saying since I was 16 that if it's the right role and important for character development and the story, then of course I'll do it," Watson told Hello! magazine.
Meanwhile, Emma Watson faces tough competition in getting the role of Anastasia Steele with other actresses who are also comfortable with nude scenes.
