Does Emma regret her decision?

Emma Watson has finally spoken up about turning down the role of Mia in critically acclaimed La La Land. Emma Stone, who was eventually cast, went on to to win an Oscar for her performance, and we think Watson may be a little upset about her decision.

Emma Watson and Miles Teller were initially slated to play the roles of aspiring actress Mia and jazz pianist Sebastian in Damien Chazelle's multiple Oscar-winning musical, but the final roles were given to Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling

Now, the Harry Potter star has finally spoken about losing out, and said it was her firm commitment to Beauty and the Beast that eventually led her to decline the role of Mia.

"It’s one of these frustrating things where names get attached to projects very early on as a way to kind of build anticipation or excitement for something that’s coming before anything is actually agreed or set in stone,” the 26-year-old revealed in a SiriusXM Town Hall interview.

“But it was one of those situations where I had been committed to Beauty and the Beast at that point for... years. And I had to be where I had to be, and scheduling conflict wise it just didn’t work out," Emma added.

Was Beauty and the Beast worth it Emma? We really hope so!
