emma watson donates a million anti sexual harassment fund

Emma Watson is such a wonderful role model.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Harry Potter alum donated £1 million (approximately $1.4 million) to the Justice and Equality Fund. This U.K.-based organization was founded to fight against sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination. The foundation was inspired by the #MeToo and Time's Up movements.

Although, the Beauty and the Beast actress' donation isn't necessarily surprising as she's already done an extensive amount of women's rights advocacy work. Watson's charitable gift was joined by Keira Knightley and Emma Thompson's donations.

Girl power!!!

Emma Thompson dropped a bombshell about Donald Trump on Thursday, and she didn't even seem to realize it.

On the talk show Skavlan, the Beauty and the Beast actress told a story about how Trump had called her in her trailer while she was filming Primary Colors — more on that later — and offered her more "comfortable" accommodations.

When Emma had failed to grasp the thrust of the future president's offer, she says he got more straightforward:

"'Well, you know, I think we would get on very well. Maybe we could have dinner sometime.' I didn't know what to do with myself!"

Obviously, she did — she's a woman of culture and taste, so she said NO.

And that was the end of the story, as far as Emma was concerned. You can watch the delightful star tell it all (below).

Beauty And The Beast Is Beautifully Updated For Modern Audiences — But Still Isn't As Magical As The Original! Read The Review Roundup!

We're knee deep in the age of live-action Disney remakes, with the studio delivering hit-or-miss adaptations to cash in on the nostalgia cravings audiences are having these days.

Even though the trailers and music for Beauty and the Beast were beyond stunning, we still didn't want to get our hopes up that the latest version could match the magic of the Oscar-winning animated classic.

Lo and behold, critics felt the same way, noting that while the movie had many magical moments, the CG wasn't as spellbinding as the OG!

While critics were charmed by the film's modern updates — including more fleshed out characters (like Josh Gad's gay LeFou and a more feminist Belle courtesy of Emma Watson) and beautifully intricate sequences — the live action take just can't hold a candle (played by Ewan McGregor) to the animated magic Disney is known for.

Still, that doesn't mean Beauty and the Beast wasn't enjoyable (it's currently at 74% on Rotten Tomatoes) — just don't expect to fall in love as quickly as Belle falls for her furry captor!
