Emma Watson Talks Noah

Emma Watson stars as Ila in the religious film Noah directed by "Black Swan" director Darren Aronofsky. However, 23-year-old Watson had a hard time separating Aronofsky from his darker film reputation. "Darren does these very dark, very intense, very gritty, very real films," the "Harry Potter" actress explained. "And then Noah is kind of — you see this guy with the long beard and there's the animals. ... You can't really picture it."

Although, the young actress plays a major role in the movie she wasn't a big believer. Watson finds herself to be more spiritual than religious, but after reading the the script by Aronofsky and Ari Handel "I think it's a really original take on a genre, on a story, on an idea."

During a interview, she admitted that it was a bit intimidating knowing that the film would be physically demanding. "For a minute I felt very intimidated and then there's something about having done those "Harry Potter" films and they were very physical. We did a lot of stuff in Scotland. It was freezing cold, filming at four in the morning, working crazy hours. It's kind of comforting in a way to know that in some senses, nothing will be as hard as that again, and I'm pretty prepared for most things people can throw at me, whether it be animals, water, stunts, CGI (computer-generated imagery), whatever it is."
