Emma Watson hits back at critics who branded her a ‘hypocrite’ for braless magazine shoot

Emma Watson and her photo for March cover of the Vanity Fair made a lot of noise, especially on the social networks, the user criticised an actress for the posing ‘topless’ underneath a chic cape, calling her non-feminist.

Emma Watson made the world to tell about her after the appearing on the Vanity Fair’s cover, the March issue of which is on the news stands since March 3. Emma faced a barrage of online abuse, the main line of accusations was a hypocrisy of the 26-year-old star, her neglecting of the feminism mainstream in Hollywood.

The young and smart Emma (whose parents are successful lawyers, by the way) patiently and politely explained her choice to go topless, saying the photo by Tim Walker doesn’t undermine her opinions. Ms Watson said:

‘Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality. I really don’t know what my t**s have to do with it. It’s very confusing. I’m always quietly stunned.’

Explaining to her colleague Dan Stevens the controversy of accusations and whole situation around her photo, Emma added:

‘They were saying I couldn’t be a feminist and have boobs’.

It is obviously that the fresh photo set for the world famous magazine added popularity to Emma but there is the question: what are the reasons for such a mess? The cover is looking good, stylish and very feminine. Maybe, too feminine for the woman today is not good?

According to the social networks’ users, Emma is neglecting the basements of the feminism because she is beautiful and smart. Such an acute reaction to the new photo set made the 26-year-old star completely ‘stunned’ by the controversy of a situation.
