Emma Watson says there’s nothing wrong with showing a bit of cleavage. The “Harry Potter” star fired back over the weekend at critics who have accused her of betraying her feminist values by revealing her cleavage in a recent Vanity Fair photo shoot.
I really don’t know what my t- -s have to do with it. It’s very confusing,” the 26-year-old British actress and activist told Reuters while promoting her new flick, Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast.”
In addition to being a UN goodwill ambassador, Watson has helped launched HeForShe, a UN campaign encouraging men to advocate for feminism. She appears on the cover of the magazine’s March issue, but it was a shot inside of her in an open white crocheted bolero jacket with nothing on underneath that drew criticism.
British journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer suggested the image, taken by fashion photographer Tim Walker, was hypocritical, given Watson’s feminist advocacy.
“Emma Watson: Feminism, feminism . . . gender wage gap . . . why oh why am I not taken seriously . . . feminism . . . oh, and here are my t- -s!” Hartley-Brewer tweeted. Speaking to Reuters, Watson said her critics were distorting what it means to be a feminist.
“It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is,” she said. Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with.
“It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality.” Hartley-Brewer, meanwhile, received nearly 100 responses to her Watson-bashing tweet — overwhelmingly in support of the actress.

It’s hard to imagine Emma Watson is in her thirties with the way she looks. The actress, who acquired fame in almost every nation today, is best known for portraying our favorite childhood characters.
For some, she’ll always be Hermione Granger, the frizzy-hair overachiever from the Harry Potter film series, or Belle, the bookish Disney princess. Despite this, Watson has gracefully transitioned from both roles and into maturity. The shift can be seen in the causes she champions. She is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Women and Girls, and she is an ardent feminist. She owes it to herself to make sensible fashion choices. Watson has used her fame to promote firms that share her values as an early user of sustainable fashion.
Wearing labels that work with zero-waste manufacturers, ethically sourced materials, and a cruelty-free promise are examples of this.
One of her favorite outfits is the bodycon dress. As much as she loves her natural self, she often likes to flaunt her sexy figure.
