British actress and activist Emma Watson stars on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, March 2017 issue. Photographed under the lens of Tim Walker and styled by Jessica Diehl.
For the cover image, the 26-year-old actress posed in Oscar De La Renta white dress from their Spring 2017 collection while in the inside editorial brings Emma posing in a white, ropy Burberry top that revealed much of her breasts.
Can you be a feminist and pose in a nearly see-through top for Vanity Fair?
There were slamming critics who suggested that posing with her breasts partially exposed for a recent Vanity Fair photo shoot was hypocritical of her feminist views.
British radio presenter and commentator Julia Hartley-Brewer accused Watson of being hypocritical.
Here are the most interesting party of the inside interview with “Beauty and the Beast” star:
On not taking photos with fans anymore: “For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data…I’ll say, ‘I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can’t do a picture.’ I have to carefully pick and choose my moment to interact. When am I a celebrity sighting versus when am I going to make someone’s freakin’ week? Children I don’t say no to, for example.”
On not talking about her boyfriend in interviews: “I want to be consistent: I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can’t have it both ways…. I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.”
On her version of Belle today: “I was like, ‘The first shot of the movie cannot be Belle walking out of this quiet little town carrying a basket with a white napkin in it,’ ” she says. “ ‘We need to rev things up!’ The original sketches had her in her ballet shoes…which are lovely—don’t get me wrong—but she’s not going to be able to do anything terribly useful in ballet shoes in the middle of a French provincial village.”
Maturing from Hermione to Belle in @beautyandthebeast is a true coming-of-age story for @EmmaWatson: “I couldn’t care less if I won an Oscar or not if the movie didn’t say something that I felt was important for people to hear.” Read the full cover story at the link in bio. Photograph by Tim Walker.
