"I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder."

Thank you, Emma! I came across this and loved it! It makes me sad that a lot of females think they have to fit a certain image or a certain idea of what 'beautiful' or 'sexy' is. We are not objects. We are people who are intelligent, classy, and very capable. Let's present ourselves as such!
Besides, we all know it's much more fun to unwrap presents covered in colorful paper and ribbon than to have someone just hand us a gift that doesn't have so much as a bow on it, right?
