Dan Stevens Interview – Beauty and the Beast – “It’s all very well telling women that feminism is important, but it’s men who have to understand that”

PREVIEW

If audiences held their breath in anticipation of Kenneth Branagh’s 2015 live action version of Cinderella, then the stakes are even higher for Bill Condon’s upcoming live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.

THE INTERVIEW

Q: Emma has become a powerful activist and a feminist. Did she inspire you in any way?

Dan: … It’s all very well telling women that feminism is important and that women can be empowered, but it’s men who have to understand that as well. It’s this spectrum and the balance of that which is in Emma’s message that is so important and powerful.
