Emma Watson has had to defend her latest photoshoot for Vanity Fair. It comes after fans criticised her (almost) topless shoot with on publication claiming she wouldn’t have “known herself” if she had posed “topless because of the patriarchy or despite it”.

Emma has brushed off these claims, saying “feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with.” She opened up during a press interview for Beauty and the Beast, saying "it's very confusing...I'm always just kind of quietly stunned".
