Emma Watson returns to social media with a bang as she shares personal essay

Emma Watson is notoriously private when it comes to her personal life and very rarely posts on social media.

But that all changed on Saturday, when the Harry Potter star shared what might be her most personal life update yet on Instagram to mark her 33rd birthday.

Emma explained that she’d ‘stepped away from life’ over the past couple of years and went into great detail about what she’d been up to.

From learning to surf to adopting a dog and even ripping off a fingernail, the A-lister gave fans a no holds barred peek into her life.

Alongside a striking black and white image of herself, Emma wrote: ‘This is 33. Holy moly. Before 29 I hadn’t even heard of a Saturn Return as a concept.’

The Little Women star went on: ‘Let’s just say that now I am well acquainted. I stepped away from my life – I learned to surf (badly), I rode some horses (that went better), I did a lot of therapy (YESS therapy!).

‘My brother and I figured out how to make a gin using recycled wine grapes!?  (@renaisspirits) I adopted Sofia in Mexico, who seems to be an angel not a dog.’

Emma added: ‘We filmed a Harry Potter reunion. I said goodbye to my Grandma and Grandpa. I retraced my steps. I started a women’s environmental investment fund.

‘I played Pickleball with @sugarrayleonard and I even played golf and then tried to make all of my girlfriends learn too.

‘I cut my thumb nail off on both hands trying to cook for myself and then was only able to do things one handed for months.

‘I felt really sad and really pissed off about a lot of things. I learned more about love and being a woman.’

She concluded: ‘It took me three years but I have finally figured out a daily practice and can actually keep it for more than a few days in a row. I burned some things down. I eat green things now!

‘I got obsessed with making Squarespace websites. I directed my first commercial.

‘These pictures were actually taken on my birthday last year, but I wasn’t ready to come out of my Covid Cocoon. Today I feel [butterfly emoji].’

Needless to say, her 70.5million followers were delighted that she’d shared such a personal update with them, and even Emma’s famous followers were quick to celebrate her return to the social media platform.

Vanessa Hudgens wrote: ‘What a goddess,’ beneath Emma’s post, while Nicola Adams added: ‘Life is a journey,’ and Karlie Kloss left a slew of fun emojis.

Glad to have you back, Emma!
