It is fair to say that the Harry Potter movie franchise is one of the most loved in the history of Hollywood, but there seems to be one person in particular who is really not a fan of the films. Actress Tilda Swinton has been talking about her dislike of the Harry Potter movies, with Tilda claiming that they wrongly romanticise boarding school.
Swinton was chatting to The Scot magazine, when she explained to them, "I think they (boarding schools) are a very cruel setting in which to grow up and I don’t feel children benefit from that type of education. Children need their parents. That’s why I dislike films like Harry Potter, which tend to romanticise such places."
As well as talking about not being a fan of the Harry Potter movies, Tilda Swinton also went on to talk about what it was that made her decide to get into acting. Tilda says that she wanted to do something with her life, which would remove her from the setting and the path that her life seemed to have been deemed to take by her family.
Swinton added, "I grew up under privileged circumstances and was expected to marry a duke. I spent a lot of time and energy making certain that I would not find myself living a life that had been pre-ordained for me."
As far as her acting career is concerned, for those of you who have yet to see the new Marvel movie Doctor Strange (what have you been doing with your life), Tilda Swinton actually gives a very good performance in the film as The Ancient One.
