Emma Watson: Call me a diva, I'll keep fighting for equality

EMMA Watson isn't worried about being called a diva.

The 'Harry Potter' star isn't bothered about being referred to as "difficult", a "feminazi" or a "First World feminist" and would rather focus on "doing the right thing" for women.

She said: "We are not supposed to talk about money, because people will think you're 'difficult' or a 'diva.' But there's a willingness now to be like, 'Fine. Call me a 'diva,' call me a 'feminazi,' call me 'difficult,' call me a 'First World feminist,' call me whatever you want, it's not going to stop me from trying to do the right thing and make sure the right thing happens. Because it doesn't just affect me.

"Whether you are a woman on a tea plantation in Kenya, or a stockbroker on Wall Street, or a Hollywood actress, no one is being paid equally."

The 25-year-old actress has also experienced her own share of sexism but admits she doesn't talk about it much because she doesn't want it to "sound like a huge deal" just because of her celebrity status.

She added to Esquire magazine: "I've had my ass slapped as I've left a room. I've felt scared walking home. I've had people following me.

"I don't talk about these experiences much, because coming from me they'll sound like a huge deal and I don't want this to be about me, but most women I know have experienced it and worse."
