Being a teen isn’t easy. Luckily, the stars of the new coming-of-age movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower gave Xtra some advice on making it through this sometimes turbulent time.
“High school is a small pond, and there is a big wide world out there,” says actor Emma Watson, who also starred in the Harry Potter movies.
“There are so many good things and so many opportunities beyond that small-minded place.”
Actor Ezra Miller, who recently came out as queer, talked about his sexuality.
“I see [using the term queer] happening a lot more and especially right now,” he says. “I think there is a great reality of people thinking about love as something that is an honour and should be inclusive.”
The Perks of Being a Wallflower will be released in theatres across North America this weekend.
Below is our coverage from the North American premiere of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
