Emma Watson credits the planet Saturn for allowing her to ‘step away from life and learn about being a woman’ as she marks 33rd birthday
Emma Watson has celebrated her 33rd birthday by reflecting on a year in which she made gin, surfed, did therapy and started a women’s environmental investment fund.
The actress, best known for playing Hermione Granger in all eight of the Harry Potter films, said she ‘learned more about love and being a woman’ over the last year thanks to ‘Saturn’s Return’.
Film star Emma, born on April 15 1990, has taken a break from social media since a previous post seen on Instagram in December 2022.
She shared a series of black and white pictures which showed her in various outfits, including shorts, dresses and jackets, that were taken during her birthday last year.
Emma captioned her post: ‘This is 33. Holy moly. Before 29 I hadn’t even heard of a Saturn Return as a concept. 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 joined forces @renaisspirits.
‘I adopted Sofia in Mexico, who seems to be an angel not a dog. 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 p**sed off about a lot of things. I learned more about love and being a woman.
‘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.
