Emma Watson is a proud feminist and is not afraid to shout it from the rooftops.

The movie star is even an ambassador for the UN Women initiative HeForShe and it was during a press conference to launch HeForShe Arts Week that she revealed the most disgusting paparazzi incident.

Years ago Emma was out celebrating her 18th birthday party and when she came out of the venue, paparazzi lay down on the pavement and took photographs up the actresses skirt, which were then published in newspapers the following day.

Emma was obviously livid and made the point that it would never have happened to a male actor.

She also went on to say “I’ve had my [ass] slapped as I’ve left a room. I’ve felt scared walking home…I don’t talk about these experiences much, because coming from me they’ll sound like a huge deal and I don’t want this to be about me,” she told Esquire magazine, “But most women I know have experienced it and worse…this is unfortunately how it is.”


Sounds absolutely horrific.
