This time around, Josh Olins is the photographer who captured the 25-year-old actress, for the cover. Watson is seen wearing a white and gold jacquard dress by Stella McCartney, with her hair loosely pulled back highlighting her natural make up and serene face. The cover line chosen for Watson's second appearance in the prestigious magazine is "Voice of a generation".
As a matter of fact, the Harry Potter actress has taken some worthy causes under her wing, when she launched her HeForShe gender equality crusade at the United Nations last September with an impassioned speech that had great success on YouTube. The starlet has also revealed that from now on she will balance her on-screen jobs with her work for HeForShe, and role as a UN Goodwill Ambassador.
"Part of me relaxed after I took on that position, it gave me a sense of belonging and purpose,” Watson told Vogue of her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women. "Everything clicked into place, in a way that it hadn't before. I understood what I'm here to do and knew where to channel all this energy that has been coming at me. I now feel this sense of peace. People say that I'm different since I did it."
"It's something I've really wrestled with. I've gone back and I've quizzed my parents," Watson said about her prodigious acting career that started at a very young age. "When I was younger, I just did it. I just acted. It was just there. So now when I receive recognition for my acting, I feel incredibly uncomfortable. I tend to turn in on myself. I feel like an imposter… It was just something I did."
The 25-year-old beauty doesn’t have even a slight moment to breathe! But we have a lot to learn from such an enterprising woman, whose aim is to inspire the new generations to be participant in the world. And she’s doing an incredible job by doing just that!
