Tilda Swinton has a reason for not liking Harry Potter films
Its normal to have opinions about Hogwarts, the British school where young witches and wizards were sent to learn about all things magical, for Harry Potter aficionados.

However, Tilda Swinton seems to have a beef with Hogwarts due to its portrayal of boarding schools.

Recounting her time at West Heath Girls’ School in Kent during an interview with Scots magazine, the Michael Clayton actress said, “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.”

Children need their parents. That's why I dislike films like Harry Potter, which tend to romanticise such places,” she added.

Several pupils’ fates are also somewhat pre-ordained at Hogwarts, which is fine if your destiny is to slay dragons, but not so great in the more prosaic real world. I grew up under privileged circumstances and was expected to marry a duke,” Swinton explained.

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.”

The actress is passionate about education, to the extent that she even set up her own independent school in 2013 with an emphasis on “art based practical learning.”
