Emma Watson Hits Out at 'Dangerously Unhealthy' Fashion Images of Celebrities

Emma Watson has hit out at media who give younger girls an unrealistic image of how celebrities look in real life.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, the actress spoke out at the increasing scrutiny she felt as a young woman, saying the 'pressure got me down' but has since made peace with it:

"I'm excited about the ageing process. I'm more interested in women who aren't perfect. They're more compelling."

The outspoken star went on to say the change in digital manipulation of images also means women are competing with false fashion idols,

"With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can be an unobtainable image that's dangerously unhealthy."

Emma, who was promoting her latest film Noah, has always been open about her body insecurities previously telling media:

“My weight has fluctuated between a size 6 and a 10. When you’re growing, your body is still figuring itself out and it takes a while to settle down.

“I keep telling myself that I’m a human being, an imperfect human being who’s not made to look like a doll, and that who I am as a person is more important than whether at that moment I have a nice figure.”
