Emma Watson Fires Back At Critics Of Her Vanity Fair Shoot

Emma Watson on Sunday responded to critics who said she strayed from her feminist roots when she posed for a revealing photo in Vanity Fair.

In a recent shoot for the magazine, the 26-year-old “Beauty and the Beast” star appears in a white crocheted jacket with no shirt or bra. The pictures, shot by fashion photographer Tim Walker, sparked backlash across social media and from some media outlets.

Watson told Reuters that she’s simply confused by some of the flak she’s received. “It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is of what feminism is,” she said.

“Feminism is about giving women choice,” she went on. “Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality. I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it. It’s very confusing.”

“I’m confused. Most people are confused... I’m always just kind of quietly stunned,” the former “Harry Potter” star added.

Along with the criticism, though, came plenty of support for the photo shoot.

For her part, Watson enjoyed the photo shoot, calling it “incredibly artistic.”

“I was so thrilled with how kind of interesting and beautiful the photographs [were],” she said.

Watson has long been an advocate for women’s rights, teaming with the United Nations as a Women Goodwill Ambassador and working on the HeForShe campaign.

Emma Watson 'stunned' by criticism that Vanity Fair cover is not feminist

The actor Emma Watson has hit back at critics who say she has betrayed her feminist ideals by posing for a revealing picture in Vanity Fair magazine, in which parts of her breasts were exposed.

The Harry Potter co-star and pioneer of the HeForShe campaign to make men advocate for feminism, talked about the photo shoot while promoting her latest film, the Disney live-action Beauty and the Beast.

“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. I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it. It’s very confusing.

“I’m confused. Most people are confused. No, I’m just always just quietly stunned.”

The photo shoot, by acclaimed fashion photographer Tim Walker, showed Watson in an open, white crocheted bolero jacket with no bra or shirt underneath.

“We’d been doing so many crazy things on that shoot,” Watson said, “but it felt incredibly artistic and I’ve been so creatively involved and engaged with Tim and I’m so thrilled about how interesting and beautiful the photographs were.”

Fortunately, Emma was NOT playing around with that bullshit, and she said as much in her quote to Reuters about the entire dust-up:
"It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is. 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. I really don't know what my tits have to do with it. It's very confusing. I'm confused. Most people are confused. No, I'm just always just quietly stunned."
We are stunned, too, Emma! We are stunned too!
