In an interview with TimeHelena Bonham Carter discussed a variety of topics, including her feelings about how Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling was treated after she shared her opinion on her website about transgender issues and feminism.
“I think she was bullied,” Bonham Carter said. “It’s taken to the extreme when people are judging. She allowed her to speak her mind, especially if she was being abused. pain. You don’t have to all agree on everything – that would be crazy and boring. She doesn’t mean it aggressively, she’s just saying something from her own experience.” Bonham Carter added that her younger co-stars, while defending Harry Potter fans and their beliefs, and those of others of their generation, should also allow Rowling to have her own opinion on some issues.
While Bonham Carter doesn’t necessarily agree with Rowling’s comments, she seems to think people overreacted. In addition, she pointed out that this issue in feminist thought has taken on additional importance for the younger generation, who in many cases continue to disagree with Rowling’s remarks and, by extension, with her creative work.
