Ok just kidding and it was apparently playful but Jennifer just did what many people wish they could do except when Emma's in full sentence with one of her whines or slut shaming moments.
But anyway did you hear the news? No not the news Emma was being investigated for having an illegal maid in the UK. Which by the way was hardly covered by the entertainment press of the act she cancelled her attendance at a David Cameron event for a holiday to Morocco. It's the news that Emma is going to be an Ambassador to women for the United Nations.
From snitchseeker.com July 2014, ""Being asked to serve as UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling. The chance to make a real difference is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly. Women’s rights are something so inextricably linked with who I am, so deeply personal and rooted in my life that I can’t imagine an opportunity more exciting. I still have so much to learn, but as I progress I hope to bring more of my individual knowledge, experience and awareness to this role,” said Ms. Watson
Then she posted this clearly photo shopped picture of herself for UN women (the one on the right) where her lips, nose and eyes which including shrinking her cheeks was manipulated if you look at the picture on the left.

The criteria for Messengers of Peace and Goodwill Ambassadors as posted at web.undp.org
"The role of Messengers of Peace and Goodwill Ambassadors is to engage in public advocacy; in fundraising where authorized and in accordance with the applicable regulations, rules, policies and procedures of the designating UN Agency, Office, Fund or Programme; and in public awareness activities. They are encouraged to participate in United Nations events and to visit United Nations operations in the field. Every Messenger of Peace and Goodwill Ambassador is expected to participate in a minimum of three activities or events every year. The Messengers of Peace and Goodwill Ambassadors are encouraged to develop an area of special focus, which would strengthen their advocacy role. This would provide the possibility of making them a ‘go-to’ person, who can speak authoritatively on a particular issue."

I don't get this move. I certainly don't think *giggling* ... that the U.N had this meeting and was brain storming as to who they could get as another ambassador to women and some guy from Bangladesh popped out of his chair and screamed, "Emma Watson" after hours of discussion. So yeah I totally question that Emma was really asked. How many times has the truth eventually came out with things like this? It never ends up being how she initially describes it. This reeks of Emma's people inquiring about a role and they were like "Sure why not" because she does have a squeaky yet fake and PR manipulated clean image and the U.N uses celebrities from time to time. Plus the maid story will really be forgotten now. ;)
Why Emma Watson? She is neither qualified or would be an ideal candidate because she's not very charismatic nor does she have the personality for it. I can't imagine her giving speeches. I can see a lot of scripted PSA videos to raise awareness. Everything is going to be scripted for her. That's if she speaks on camera. I could see her visiting places with a photographer or camera crew and then there would be some quote printed later that they attribute to Emma but it's not her words. IMO People Tree was exactly like that. You could tell that's how it was set up because in her People Tree videos she was not as articulate and knowledgeable like she seemed in magazines.
And what experience and what knowledge does she have that she is claiming? She's a girl born into a middle class white family with lawyers for parents and later went on to be famous for acting while dabbling in fashion becoming the face of two brands and then ended up becoming a millionaire. How can she possibly relate or understand the struggles of any woman when she's be sheltered and handed things her whole life because of her family and looks? Her personal empowerment came by chance/luck and not from an uphill battle. How can a woman from a 3rd world country look at Emma and see hope in her when all she would recognize is the color of Emma's skin, status in the world and Emma's first world privilege?
I just see her as a figure head for a cause (whatever that is) but not an actual person with a cause. That's what People Tree ended up being so this kind of stuff is right up her alley. She has no problem with saying she's for something when she's not because she just wants attention. If you followed her People Tree collaboration it didn't turn out to well in the end because she found high fashion more lucrative. But she loves the praise but not the duty. She loves the recognition but never gets her hands dirty. She puts her name on it as ownership but there's no passion behind it. I don't see this UN gig to be any different.
Here's a name they should have used... Malala Yousafzai. You know the Pakistani girl that defied the odds after being shot in the head by the Taliban because she wanted an education.
You do know this will make her ego grow even bigger? Prepare for even more pretentious quotes and delusions of grandeur from her. I've never seen a more hyped and lauded actress get so much attention for doing so little. It's baffling. And I wonder how many events she will drop because of other "commitments" like she did with Camfed? Time will tell.
Or being able to avoid the annoying arriving and departing procedures at airports by being whisked through by airport security personnel. Or being accommodated (scroll to bottom for story) at her college graduation by pushing out a family who was there to watch their child who actually attended school on campus graduate Or having to clean her place because she has a maid and probably other assistants that do her cooking and run errands for her. Or the fashion, electronics, etc freebies just so people see her with them and the expensive gift bags given at events and award shows that sometimes cost more than people make a year. Etc, etc and etc left out much but whatever you get it…..
Yet she's an advocate for "gender equality" and "woman empowerment". I'd say one example of gender equality consists of you holding your own umbrella and woman empowerment would be not accepting bogus and laughable awards like "sexist movie star" like she has because a women shouldn't have to sell sex (like she has) to be successful.
Btw Emma finally has an instagram account and let me remind you what she said at the Cannes last year: "How does the Internet alter the way we define ourselves? “It’s amazing how self-aware we’re becoming, as a result of constantly posting images on Facebook and Instagram or whatever else. There is so much branding of ourselves, it’s amazing. And I think that it’s a shame that some of that naivete, or just blissfully unaware stage, is shortened over time.”
Meanwhile she has a professional facebook that posts pictures and she uses twitter. Now she has a instagram. Btw her fans did find her personal FB which was deleted.
