Nude Photos of Emma Watson Circling at Brown University
Often thought of as innocent Hermione Granger, real life actress Emma Watson’s squeaky-clean image has hit a rough patch. A nude photo of her is circling around Brown University’s campus.
According to the Daily Mail, topless photos of the 20-year-old Harry Potter star are ending up in students’ email boxes. These alleged photos show Watson, a junior at Brown, standing by a hot tub wearing only a towel around her waist.
“Emma is trying to seek out the source so she can put a stop to it,” Watson’s friend told the Daily Mail. “She says the picture has been faked.”
One of her representatives had this to say about the alleged nude photos:
“There have been a number of nude fakes over the past two months. Emma has seen them and finds them tiresome. People should know better.”
While Watson claims the photos are phony, she told The Sun that she wants to stray away from her good-girl image. “‘I wished I’d done more naughty things,” she said. “Three months ago I cut my hair and at that moment I felt I became a woman. I’m ready to start taking risks.”
The release of these photos have made unusual timing, as they came out days after Watson’s interview with Marie Claire where she told the magazine that her college friends were very protective of her.
“I found a great group of girlfriends… Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me,” she said in the magazine interview. “They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I’m part of it.”
