Emma Watson, best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, is currently doing loads of publicity for her new film. It’s a little thing called Beauty and the Beast–perhaps you’ve heard of it? However, some creep decided the new Disney princess was getting too much good press.
Watson’s private photos made their way to the internet. If you’re reading this hoping for nude photos, look elsewhere. The pics were simply from a fitting, and Watson isn’t naked at all in them.
“Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen,” her publicist stated. “They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”
Nonetheless, it’s a major violation of privacy. Also, it’s not the first time people have targeted Emma. After she gave a speech about gender equality as a UN ambassador, someone started threatening to leak her nude pictures.
“I knew it was a hoax. I knew the pictures didn’t exist,” she said. “The minute I stepped up and talked about women’s rights I was immediately threatened, within less than 12 hours I was receiving threats.”
