The recent photos of Emma Watson for Vanity Fair sans bra and top accumulated both good and bad feedbacks. But what stood out more is the fact that most people, particularly Beyonce's Beyhive, have called her hypocrite. However, the "Beauty and the Beast" star is not one who shuts her mouth, instead, defends herself especially when needed.
In 2014, Emma Watson slammed Beyonce in an interview after discussing her sexuality in a visual album created in the same year, "Beyonce." Albeit this is a thing of the past, Queen Bey's fans seem to never forget and used it against the 26-year-old star.
"As I was watching [the videos] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her," Watson said in 2014 in an interview published in Wonderland Magazine.
Now, Beyhive fans are using Emma Watson's statements against her, as US Magazine reported. But instead of keeping mum about the issue, the "Harry Potter" star put up a full interview from the Wonderland Magazine, tweeted in on Mar. 6, and informing Beyonce's fans that she has never offended the "Run The World" singer.

The Wonderland's full article says that Emma Watson believes Beyonce is "making her sexuality empowering because it is her choice," and instead of backlashing the singer, she was, in fact, praising her.
Meanwhile. as per Refinery29, the issue about feminism and Emma Watson's stunning yet controversial Vanity Fair photos were somehow explained by the star itself in an interview with Reuters, saying that feminism is about freedom, liberation, and equality.
As per Beyonce, the 35-year-old mom was found busy with her family, watching the premiere of "Beauty and the Beast."
