But despite this, Emma Watson has criticised the ‘dangerously unhealthy’ pressure put upon young women by the fashion industry.

The 23-year-old actress told Sunday Times Style magazine that she has felt pressure in the past to look her best but has since made peace with what she has.

She said: “I can take criticism on the chin a lot more.

“As a younger woman, that pressure got me down but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy.”

Emma also went on to admit that she believes women who aren’t perfect are far more interesting to look at than those who are.

“I’m excited about the ageing process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling,” she explained.

Emma recently put her words into practice by tweeting a picture of herself dressed in a stunning Oscar de la Renta dress ahead of the New York premiere  of Noah with the caption: "I did NOT wake up like this."

This was then followed by a picture of all the help she recieved to complete her red carpet look.

And it would seem that the Harry Potter actress doesn’t take fashion advice from a stylist, instead choosing to listen to the opinion of people much closer to home.

She added: “I love showing them images and asking, ‘What do you think of this dress?’ I call on my boyfriends for advice all the time - ‘I mean friends who are boys, and my girlfriends.’”
