Emma Watson was allowed to drink alcohol when she was just seven. The “Harry Potter” actress has revealed her parents Chris and Jacqueline, who are both lawyers who divorced when she was just five, always treated her like an adult and she was allowed to drink wine with meals as a child.
Emma, now 20, believes her parent’s attitude to alcohol stopped her from drinking to excess as a teenager like many of friends. She said, “My dad wouldn’t have any of this kids stuff. We would never be allowed to order from the kids’ menu in restaurants. He’d always expect me to have adult conversations. I wasn’t babied I was expected to step up when I was told to.”
“I was never not allowed alcohol – I was seven when I had my first glass of wine, mixed with water and with a meal. I found it really strange when I got to school and everyone was like, ‘Ooh, we’ve got alcohol!’ I wasn’t interested.”
