Emma Watson says she has made her “transition into being a woman on-screen” after finishing up on upcoming live action rendition of Diseny’s 1991 classic “Beauty and the Beast”. To add to this, and to many men’s delight, she has taken her most risqué magazine shoot to date.
British fashion photographer Tim Walker snapped the 26-year-old actress wearing a chunky open-weave bolero jacket, with nothing underneath for the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine. A very cleverly crafted high-fashion photo to protect Watson’s modesty, that also sees her crossing her arms across her bare stomach.
Maturing from Hermione to Belle in @beautyandthebeast is a true coming-of-age story for @EmmaWatson: “I couldn’t care less if I won an Oscar or not if the movie didn’t say something that I felt was important for people to hear.” Read the full cover story at the link in bio.

Despite starring in films since the early age of 11, she feels that it’s the recent effort of Beauty and the Beast that has made her feel come of age. She describes her character, Belle, as a strong one, despite being “absolutely a Disney princess”. She also added that Belle isn’t a passive character and is in charge of her own destiny.
Watson previously had wishes of quitting acting for good and turning her back completely on Hollywood, but says she is now better in herself as an actress. The March issue for Vanity Fair is on sale this Friday (3rd March).
