Emma Watson is So Sick of People Being Obsessed with Her Sexuality

Although Emma Watson is long past her Hermione days, some people seem to be stuck in the past.

Watson stars in a new film, Colonia, and the trailer shows a quick flash of Watson in bed with co-star Daniel Brühl. Although this isn’t out of the ordinary, it’s literally the only thing people can focus on. Even the Daily Mail published an article titled, “Emma Watson indulges in passionate display with Daniel Brühl as they roll around on the bed.”

LOL, is that what they call it these days? Watson unveiled her frustration in an interview with The Times:

“Yes, three and half seconds of nude pictures which were not particularly risqué. It’s deeply irritating… I’m 26 now. I’ve been in 15 films in total and me kissing somebody else shouldn’t be risqué or horrifying, but I think that will continue for a long time. There have been lots of advantages to being part of that franchise [Harry Potter], and playing that role for a long time, but inevitably there are obstacles and that’s one of them.”

In case anybody hasn’t noticed, Emma Watson is a grown woman, and she’s allowed to be a sexual being.
