The 56-year-old, renowned Hollywood actress Tilda Swinton says
that she likes films like Harry Potter as it gives a false
impression to the children about boarding schools.
The actress thinks that the boarding schools are quite damaging
to children as they tend to be very "cruel" in their mannerism and
approach. She added, she was also sent to a Boarding school, West
Heath Girls' School in Kent, in South East of England.
Tilda, believes that in the Harry Potter films, the Hogwarts
School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has been portrayed differently
which gives children an unrealistic impression about boarding
"I think they are a very cruel setting in which to grow up and I
don't feel children benefit from that type of education," she said
in a statement.
"Children need their parents. That's why I dislike films like
'Harry Potter', which tend to romanticise such places," Tilda
The "Doctor Strange" actress said that it is unfair to give an
unrealistic picture about school to children. Harry Potter
"romanticises" the very concept of school and for that reason she
don't like the famous JK Rowling series.
"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," Swinton stated further.
