Emma Watson: Belle or Rebel in Vanity Fair?

The Beauty and the Beast star is under some backlash over the release of this semi-nude photo on Vanity Fair.

Watson who stars in Beauty and the Beast as Belle is also known for starting the #HeForShe campaign which promotes feminism. In 2014, she was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and continues to actively speaks out about women’s rights.

At the release of the Vanity Fair issue, it wasn’t long before people took to Twitter to target the star for the picture which they deemed anti-feminist.

Despite her critics, some of her fans were also backing her up on Twitter.

Watson added that the criticism has left her confused because feminism is about freedom and a woman’s choice over her body. Watch her school her critics below at what it means to be a feminist.
