Emma Watson will do anything for her fans, but taking a selfie is not one of them.

The ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ actress opened up to Vanity Fair about why she refuses fan photos — it all comes down to her safety.

“For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not,” she revealed. “If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data.”

Instead of bombarding her with photo requests, Emma is open to autographs and reminiscing about her days as Hermione Granger:

“I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact,” she continued. “When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone’s freakin’ week? Children I don’t say no to, for example.”

Emma is full of wisdom — you need to hear the advice she gave to strangers in New York City!
