Emma Watson has poked fun at herself over the grammatically incorrect fake tattoo she showed off at a post-Oscars party.

The actress was pictured on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair event with a cursive Time’s Up tattoo on her right forearm, although it was missing an apostrophe.

Fans were unsure whether the inking was real or fake, but the Beauty And The Beast star has now confirmed it was a temporary tattoo as she jokingly referred to the error.

Watson tweeted: “Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must.”

The 27-year-old was among the stars at the Oscars and the post-ceremony parties, many of whom wore pins backing the Time’s Up movement against sexual harassment.

The initiative was triggered by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s downfall and the others who have had claims of sexual misconduct launched against them.

Last month, it emerged that Harry Potter actress Watson made a £1 million donation to a new fund that will help set up a framework and provide support for those affected by sexual harassment.
