Emma Watson thanks Steve Carell for #HeForShe Oscar cufflinks in adorable note
Emma Watson thanked Steve Carell for supporting her #HeForShe campaign typically adorable fashion.
The 24-year-old actress was last year as a UN Goodwill Ambassador and has taken the campaign, which is 'described as a 'solidarity movement for gender equality', particularly seriously.
Steve Carell, who was nominated for Best Actor in Foxcatcher, took the Academy Awards as the best opportunity to showcase his support for feminism, wearing a pair of #HeForShe cufflinks with his tuxedo.
Not only did Watson notice, but she posted a picture on Twitter of a handwritten note, thanking him: "I think you're so awesome and today you are wearing #HeForShe Monique Péan cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality. Couldn't be more proud! THANK YOU."
She wrote a similar note to actor Jake McDorman of American Sniper.
"I decided that I was a feminist," she said during her now famous UN speech last year. "This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists.
"Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive. Why has the word become such an unpopular one? I think it is right I am paid the same as my male counterparts.
"I think it is right that I should make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that affect my life. I think it is right that socially, I am afforded the same respect as men."
