Miller has shared that Watson became one of their “closest friends” and they developed a “brother and sister” relationship while starring in the 2012 film. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star also shared that they immediately contacted Watson after being cast in the Harry Potter spin-off for her advice.

“Emma was the first person I called,” Miller said. For the past year, there have been a number of controversies surrounding the Justice League actor. Although it is unclear if Watson and Miller are still close, many questioned the 33-year-old actress for not speaking out about the controversial behavior of her The Perks of Being a Wallflower co-star.

Emma Watson Pulled into Ezra Miller’s Controversies

Ezra Miller has caused a major outburst among people following their behavior. They have been accused of assault and the alleged grooming of a teenager and have been arrested twice in Hawaii for disorderly conduct. The outrage surrounding the Trainwreck actor soon pulled in their former co-star Emma Watson, as people criticized her for calling out J.K. Rowling but not saying anything about Miller.

While it is unclear if Watson is still close to Miller, many still claimed that she could have said something about Miller, as she wasn’t hesitant to speak out against the Harry Potter author.

The Beauty and the Beast star is also known for speaking up for women’s rights.

No one is defending Miller. It’s gross that you’re trying to use Miller’s crimes to belittle a woman for disagreeing with you.

However, her silence toward Miller’s actions caused people to question her believes in the same and urged the actress to share her thoughts on Miller’s controversial behavior. Watson’s fans also came to her defense, saying that the Little Women star does not have to answer for Miller’s actions and is not responsible for them.
