The “Beauty and the Beast” star Emma Watson recently had an embarrassing experience when her phone suddenly rang during an interview and revealed her Tina Turner ringtone.
The “Harry Potter” actress was in the middle of an interview with Mark Heyes for ITV’s daytime show “Lorraine” when the chorus of Turner’s hit song “Steamy Windows” suddenly played. The music came from Watson’s phone who had Turner’s song as her ringtone, Entertainment Weekly reported. The British star was mortified over the incident and immediately reached out to put her phone on silent mode.
She told Heyes during the interview that she was embarrassed that her phone rang and apologized for the incident. “That is so embarrassing. That is my phone. That is Tina Turner!” Watson said. Heyes just laughed the incident off and complimented the actress for her choice in ringtones. “That is ultimate respect. I think that’s the best ringtone I’ve ever heard!” Heyes stated. Watson was also grateful that Heyes had a laugh over her embarrassing incident. “I’m glad I’m forgiven because of Tina Turner, otherwise, that would have been terrible. I’m so sorry,” she said.
The two celebrities then continued with the interview where Watson talked about her upcoming movie projects that included “Colonia” and the live movie version of the hit Disney animation “Beauty and the Beast.” The “Regression” star also shared her excitement for landing the lead female role of Belle in the movie.
Heyes and Watson also discussed the actress’ style and fashion choices. She confessed her love and passion for fashion, as evidenced in the various stylish looks and fashion ensembles that she wore in red carpet events. Heyes even described her as one of “most stylish women in the U.K.”
Meanwhile, Watson, along with “Pacific Rim” star Idris Elba and “Star Wars” actor John Boyega was among the 683 new members invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Independent reported. The Oscar award-giving body has revealed that the recent addition of new members was its largest yet and represents a diverse mix of actor, actresses and filmmakers.
The list was unveiled on Wednesday, June 29. It appears that the Academy has also taken to heart the criticisms that it received following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Of the 683 member list, nearly half are female and 41 percent are people of color.
