Emma Watson Is A Spiritual Universalist Who Believes In A Higher Power

Posted: Updated:

Emma Watson stars in Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic "Noah," which has drawn attention from religious groups about its faithfulness (or lack thereof) to the scriptural account of the flood.

The actress, who plays Noah's adopted daughter in the film, opened up to The Telegraph about her own faith ahead of the movie's opening.

"I already, before I did the movie, had a sense that I was someone that was more spiritual, than specifically religious," she said. "I had a sense that I believed in a higher power, but that I was more of a Universalist, I see that there are these unifying tenets between so many religions."

Watson said that she was looking forward to the debate that would be generated from the film, commenting, "I think it's amazing to make a film that celebrates faith and that gets a conversation going, because it's such an important subject," according to Christian Today.
