Emma Watson Tells Gloria Steinem She's Just Like Hermione in an Epic Feminist Bonding Session

In a move that would make Hermione proud, Emma Watson is taking a year off from acting to focus on being a feminist. Her plan? To read one book a week, starting with Gloria Steinem's My Life On The Road.

Emma recently interviewed Gloria at the Emmanuel Centre in London, and they chatted about a number of important topics, including eyebrow insecurity—something we can all relate to.

"I used to hate that I had strong eyebrows," Emma said. "As a 9-year-old, I desperately wanted to pluck them and make them two thin lines. You come to embrace these things. My mother desperately tried to tell me that they gave my face character."

Gloria's response? "Our bodies are instruments, not ornaments. We should celebrate our different shapes and sizes, our Caesarean scars and all the other beautiful imperfections that make us who we are. I hope every woman in this room goes home tonight, looks in the mirror, and says, 'Yes, this is fan-f*cking-tastic!'"

On it, Gloria. And speaking of people who are eyebrow proud, Emma admitted she has more in common with her Harry Potter alter ego Hermione Granger than she used to admit. "I feel as though I spent a long time trying to pretend I was not like Hermione," she said. "And, of course, I was rather like Hermione. I've finally come to accept the fact."

Hermione is basically the Hillary Clinton of Hogwarts (she gets sh*t done and is also a wizard), so it's safe to say that having something in common with her is a good thing.
