Watson hits back at critics of provocative photo shoot


    Emma Watson arrives at the world premiere of “Beauty and the Beast” at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES >> Emma Watson has hit back at critics who claimed her recent photoshoot for Vanity Fair betrayed her feminist ideals.

In one image from the shoot, photographed by Tim Walker, Watson poses in a crochet white top that reveals part of her cleavage.

The 26-year-old Watson said March 4 that the controversy represented “a fundamental and complete misunderstanding of what feminism is.” She said, “Feminism is about equality and it’s about choice.” She adds: “Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women.”

The British actress stars as Belle in Disney’s live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast,” which hits theaters next week.
