Emma Watson – Progressive Quote but Regressive Picture

Emma Watson - Progressive Quote but Regressive Picture

Emma Watson stars in the upcoming My Week with Marilyn and just did an interview for the cover of UK Elle. In the interview (the full interview is not yet available online) she talks about her worries about conforming to the Hollywood culture.

Here’s one of the great quotes from the piece:

I find LA quite scary because of that – all those young people having plastic surgery. But the thing is, I don’t want to look like everyone else. I don’t have perfect teeth, I’m not stick thin. I want to be the person who feels great in her body and can say that she loves it and doesn’t want to change anything. It’s ridiculous that seems such an unrealistic goal. I think the actresses who are really successful are the ones who are comfortable in their own skins and still look human.

But then she allows herself to be photographed in bunny ears. WTF? Bunny ears = Playboy = bad message for young women.

Photo after the jump.

What do you think of the picture?
