Emma Watson Daily
- Your 24/7 online and leading source dedicated to actress Emma Watson -

Emma Watson is moving away from her “Harry Potter” image. The 24-year-old English actress is reportedly appearing topless in her new film “Regression,” and it has got worried.

The film, which also stars Ethan Hawke and David Dencik and is directed by Alejandro Amenabar, isn’t hitting theatres until August 2015, but a preview of it is apparently showing in U.S. cinemas. And although Watson has accepted more adult roles after she graduated from “Hogwarts” in 2011, the thriller drama is the first that she has shown more skin.

According to The Sun, moviegoers expressed concern over a particular scene in the teaser, wherein she appeared to be topless. One moviegoer claimed it was “useless and ineffective.”

“You can see her breasts but they are partially obscured. I think she may have been wearing pasties to cover her nipples,” the source said. As the film is currently in production stage, Watson’s alleged topless scene may or may not even make it to the final cut.

In “Regression,” Watson plays Angela Gray, who accuses her father (Dencik) of sexually abusing her, of which he has no recollection. Hawke plays Detective Bruce Kenner who investigates their case.

Following the successful release of the multi-billion-dollar “Harry Potter” film franchise from 2001 to 2011, Watson has chosen grittier roles to expand her repertoire as an actress. In 2013, she starred in “The Bling Ring,” which saw her in a role opposite her intelligent “Harry Potter” character, Hermione Granger. She will also be starring in the upcoming German drama film “Colonia Dignidad,” which will be released in late 2015.

Laverne Cox and Amy Poehler also made the list

The Ms. Foundation and Cosmopolitan.com have released a list of the top feminist celebrities of the year, and actress Emma Watson is number one.

As a UN Goodwill Ambassador, Watson helped found the He for She program this year and made a rousing speech urging men to take up the feminist mantle, telling them, “gender equality is your issue, too.”

Here is the full list:

1. Emma Watson
2. Laverne Cox
3. Rachel Maddow
4. Beyoncé
5. Cher
6. Amy Poehler
7. Tina Fey
8. Meryl Streep
9. Mindy Kaling
10. Ann Curry

“We celebrate all feminists every day, but today we’re giving a hat tip to celebrities who are helping to promote women’s equality,” said Ms. Foundation President Teresa Younger said in a statement. “Every celebrity on the list has either embraced the term ‘feminist,’ spoken out for women’s equal rights or battled against sexist oppression.”

As cover star of Porter’s winter 2014 issue, Cate Blanchett told the magazine how much she loved Emma Watson’s powerful speech about gender equality in September — and Blanchett didn’t hold back:

“I was so fucking proud of Emma Watson’s speech at the UN. It was brilliant, such an incredible use of her airspace, and really passionate. It was fantastic,” Blanchett said.

Blanchett is one of the many celebrities who showed support for Watson and her message, especially after hackers threatened to release nude photos of Watson just one day after her feminist speech at the United Nations. Though the photo leak turned out to be a hoax, started by Internet trolls to garner traffic for their fake company website, the threatening nature of the message was still harmful. Blanchett acknowledged the “horrendous” threats before adding a positive message:

But there’s hope. There are a lot of things happening in an international sphere, and there are enough women with enough clout to make those shifts happen. Enough is enough. And I hope the Emma Watsons of this world are going to say, ‘Fuck it.’
