Emma Watson was too busy not dating Prince Harry to attend the Oscars on Sunday night, but she still made her presence known. The Harry Potter star has added “activist” to her portfolio of skills, including launching the HeForShe campaign, which aims to bring together “one half of humanity [men] in support of the other half of humanity [women], for the benefit of all.”
It’s a noble and worthy endeavor, and during the Academy Awards, Steve Carell, who was nominated for Best Actor for his work in Foxcatcher, wore special HeForShe cufflinks.
Dear Steve Carell,
You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favourite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love, I hated that guy you played in The Way Way Back, and then you were mind-blowing in Foxcatcher. I think you’re so awesome and today you are wearing #HeForShe Monique Péan cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality. Couldn’t be more proud! THANK YOU.
