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 schools.
"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 added.
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.
