Emma Watson Thanks Steve Carell For His Support

Emma Watson Wrote Steve Carell the Sweetest Note Thanking Him For His Support

On Oscars Sunday, Emma Watson took to Twitter to thank nominee Steve Carell for wearing HeForShe cuff links in support of the #HeForShe gender equality campaign. The actor wore Monique Péan for HeForShe cuff links and shirt studs, which were codesigned by Emma and Monique Péan. To thank him, Emma tweeted a picture of a supersweet note that she wrote for him, which read:

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 now you are wearing ‪#‎HeForShe‬ cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality. Couldn't be more proud. THANK YOU.

Love,

Emma x

Steve replied on Monday, tweeting, "Thanks @EmWatson. An honor to support #HeForShe and gender equality." He isn't the first actor to stand behind Emma and the campaign; days after Emma delivered a powerful speech at the United Nations, Tom Hiddleston showed his support with a selfie, writing to Emma, "You are impeccable and extraordinary. I stand with you. I believe in gender equality." Take a look at some of Emma Watson's best quotes, and then see why she'll be a perfect Disney princess when she stars in Beauty and the Beast.
