We all remember Hermoine Granger from Harry Potter. Right?

If you did not know, her real name is Emma Watson and she is a lot of things: actress, model, feminist and activist.

But what she isn’t (until now), is a celebrity with an inclination to go nearly-naked for magazine shoots.

The 26-year-old surprised us with a topless shoot for Vanity Fair this week.

Posing without bra in the magazine’s March issue, the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ star looks fierce and flawless in the shoot by legendary photographer, Tim Walker.

Emma’s modesty is protected by a white, caged cape from Burberry (fresh from the brand’s recent London Fashion Week show collection), paired with an Elizabethan inspired ruff.

The actress, who is a UN ambassador for women’s rights, said (and we can see), that she has come of age.

In the shoot’s accompanying interview, Watson, who starred in the new ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie, said, “When I finished (Beauty And The Beast), it kind of felt like I had made that transition into being a woman on-screen. I’ve been doing this since I was 10 or 11, and I’ve often thought, I’m so wrong for this job because I’m too serious; I’m a pain in the ass; I’m difficult; I don’t fit. But as I’ve got older, I’ve realised, No! Taking on those battles, the smaller ones and the bigger ones, is who I am.”

She is definitely one hot nude model.
