Emma Watson Explains Why She Was Dropped From 'La La Land' Starring Role

Emma Watson (photosEmma Watson photos) almost landed the starring role in 'La La Land' that eventually went to Emma Stone in Damien Chazelle's Oscar-nominated musical.

In an interview on SiriusXM's Town Hall, Watson explained: "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 really actually agreed or set in stone."

The 26-year-old said she had also committed to Disney's live-action 'Beauty and the Beast'.

"Beauty and the Beast wasn't a movie I could just sort of step into," Watson said. "I knew I had horse training, I knew I had dancing, I knew I had three months of singing ahead of me and I knew I had to be in London to really do that. This wasn't a movie I could just kind of parachute into."

"I knew I had to do the work, and I had to be where I had to be. So, you know, scheduling conflict-wise, it just didn't work out."

Stone went on to win the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in 'La La Land'.
