Emma Watson has denied rumors that she has been case in the role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation, but that doesn’t mean she’s shying away from racy roles.
This week, the star graces the cover of British GQ in a Pretty Woman-inspired dress that shows off a large portion of Watson’s bare skin. The photo portrays Watson as her character from the upcoming movie The Bling Ring. In the movie she plays Nicki, a fame-chasing, despicable character that Watson told the magazine she “hated.”
“The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral,” said Watson. “She’s all of these things and I realised that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be.”
As much skin as Watson shows in the new GQ, it turns out that the GQ photo shoot isn’t even the most racy one the actress has participated in. A new book by photographer James Houston titled Natural Beauty will soon be released, which features photos Watson posed for while topless. Though the photos don’t appear to actually show the actress’ bare breasts, Watson previewed them recently on Twitter:
