PICS: Emma Watson laughs off fake tattoo fail

Cape Town – Emma Watson intended to make a statement with her outfit accessories at the Vanity Fair Oscars party but there’s one problem – grammar.

The Beauty and the Beast actress attended the after party dressed in a Ralph Lauren sleeveless dress accessorised with a temporary tattoo that reads, “Time’s Up” on the inside of her forearm.

The fake ink is inspired by the movement which aims to encourage “personal, social, legal and policy changes that will ensure everyone can feel safe at work, at play and at home.”

The only problem with Emma’s unique accessory choice however, is that an apostrophe between the ‘e’ and the ‘s’ is missing.

Of course, the accidental error caused a stir online prompting Emma to add some humour to the situation.

“Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must,” she wrote on Twitter.


According to People magazine Emma donated £1m (R16 360 150m) to the Justice and Equality Fund in February.

The GoFundMe page was started on Valentine’s Day which consists of “a group of UK-based women from the entertainment industry who have come together to challenge the sexual harassment, assault and discrimination that persists across all industries and sections of society.”
