Douglas Booth is the latest celebrity to take part of the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. As part of the challenge, Booth has to keep the chain going by nominating friends for the cause. Of all the people on Booth’s list, the actor nominated his onscreen partner in “Noah,” Emma Watson.

Emma Watson and Douglas Booth shared quite the chemistry onscreen for the biblical adaptation of “Noah” directed by Darren Aronofsky. For the “Harry Potter” star, the love story between her character and that of Douglas’ character is the “special kind.”

“[Emma’s character] falls in love with Shem, who is Noah’s older son, and they form this very, sort of special love story. I think it’s a very youthful, innocent, hopeful love story, which brings a kind of light to the eclectic chaos. So yeah, it’s a really special love story,” shared Watson to Parade.

This “special love story” could have progressed off screen into a special friendship. Months after the premiere of “Noah,” Douglas still has open line of communication with Emma Watson. Much recently, Douglas even challenged his onscreen partner to the ALS Ice Bucket challenge.

Wearing a white shirt, Douglas Booth accepted the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Check out the video of Booth’s challenge below. After taking on the challenge, the “Jupiter Ascending” star challenged Emma Watson on Twitter.

“Over to you @grimmers and @EmWatson You have 24hrs! #ALS #IceBucketChallenge,” tweeted Booth.

The challenge was made by Booth last Aug. 20 yet Watson still hasn’t taken it on. For one, the actress turned UN Women’s Goodwill ambassador is busy taking on other challenges with regards to women empowerment.

Early this month, the actress took to Twitter to slam a Turkish politician with regards to his comment that women should not laugh out loud. Watson posted a photo of her doubling down in laughter with the hash tag #direnkahkaha which literally translates to “resist and laugh off.”

Name: Emma Watson

Occupation: Actress

Residence: London and New York

Favorite item of clothing: Jackets. Whether it’s a classic trench, a BLK DNM leather jacket, a great oversize J Brand denim jacket or a beautiful Miu Miu opera coat, I love that they always look and feel better the more you wear them.

Favorite place to shop: I love shops with a unique point of view. In London, I buy my lingerie from Tallulah. I do my vintage shopping in Notting Hill. English Topshop is hard to beat. In Paris, I will always go to Isabel Marant. In New York, there is a great shop called Otte, and another called Bird. In California, there is this great boutique called Anaïse where I stock up on beautiful handcrafted hair accessories. Net-a-Porter or Shopbop are great for online.

Favorite shoes: Paul Andrew made me the most beautiful shoes for my graduation. I won’t wear shoes I can’t walk in and his were so comfortable. Recently, I’ve been falling for Ancient Greek. But day to day, my trusty Alexander Wang Kori ankle boots or Tabitha Simmons suede Early booties get me through most daytime occasions. For nighttime, I almost always wear my Prada pointed-toe suede pumps. I’ve had my pair five years now, and they are still perfect and go with everything.

Favorite accessory: My go-to daily little jewels. Every day I wear a tiny, drop diamond necklace on a sweet gold chain from Catbird, a very special Jennifer Meyer gold bar necklace that was a birthday present, and my tiny rings from Hirotaka, Boucheron, and one vintage one from my mother.

Scent: Diptyque’s Feu de Bois candle.

Watch: Cartier Tank Solo in gold.

Style icons: Lauren Bacall, Sofia Coppola, Cate Blanchett, Françoise Hardy.

Actress Emma Watson tweets a photo of herself laughing, in protest against comments made by Turkey’s vice prime minister that women should not laugh out loud

When Turkey’s deputy prime minister gave a speech about what he saw as Turkey’s poor moral state, he wanted to deliver a message to his people.

Bulent Arinc, speaking at a ceremony to mark Eid – celebrating the end of Ramadan- urged Turkish women to abide by a rigorous code – and know what is “haram,” or forbidden.

“A woman will know what is haram and not haram,” he said. “She will not laugh out loud in public. She will not be inviting in her attitudes and will protect her chasteness.”

His comments were widely ridiculed, with Instagram, Facebook and Twitter ablaze with pictures of women laughing and the hashtag, #direnkahkaha (ignore him – laugh) was born.

On Friday Emma Watson joined in, tweeting a photo of herself laughing in public.

The Harry Potter star shared an image in which she was laughing and wrote: “#laugh #direnkahkaha @UN_Women”. She also included a link to a newspaper article about the deputy prime minister’s comments.

Despite the conservative nature of politicians in the ruling AKP party – of which Mr Arinc is a member – they usually do not say such bizarre soundbites.

The day after his controversial speech, Mr Arinc explained he intended his comments towards men also. But he went on to further isolate and offend women.

“There are some artists who now laugh artificially and send me their photos. Real laughs relieve a person, but these are artificial ones. Those who go for a vacation with their lovers while leaving their husbands behind and can’t wait to climb poles when they see one,” Mr Arınc added.

The backlash against the politician’s comments continued, however, and Emma Watson was not the only one from the western world to get involved. Femen activists, feminists across the world and the vice-president of the EU Commission, Neelie Kroes, have also tweeted.

But the most vocal were Turkish women infuriated by comments they deemed ridiculous.
