‘Beauty and the Beast’ Star Emma Watson Donates Money From Advice Booth to Planned Parenthood

“Beauty and the Beast” star Emma Watson recently donated proceeds from an advice booth to the abortion and contraceptive giant Planned Parenthood, declaring, “They’re the best.”

Watson, also known for her role as Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” films, recently participated in “Vanity Fair’s” video series “Derek Does Stuff With a Friend.”

In the segment, host Derek Blasberg served as a walking advice booth at Grand Central Terminal in New York, where for $2 participants could ask Watson for her thoughts as she interacted live via Skype through Blasberg’s tablet. Questions ranged from how to announce a pregnancy, to relationship advice, to what to do for the day.

At one point, a young male participant praised Watson’s work with the women’s equality campaign “HeForShe” as being “inspiring,” which sparked her to inquire if the teen is a feminist.

“I’m definitely against sexism,” he replied. “I’m definitely against, you know, arranged marriages, and I’m definitely pro-choice.”

“You’re obviously a complete legend and definitely a feminist,” Watson quipped, joking that she wanted to obtain his name and phone number.

At the conclusion of the segment, Blasberg asked Watson what she wanted to do with the money raised from the advice booth.

“It has to go to Planned Parenthood,” Watson instructed. “Planned Parenthood. They’re the best.”

Vanity Fair has noted that the funds were indeed donated to the organization as per Watson’s wishes.

As previously reported, the upcoming live action remake of “Beauty and the Beast”—in which Watson plays the role of Belle—has been making headlines for another reason: its reported “gay moment.”

Director Bill Condon, who is an open homosexual, told the outlet “Attitude” last month that the character LeFou, who serves as the sidekick to Gaston, will have a subplot surrounding his attraction to Gaston. Luke Evans, an open homosexual, was cast as Gaston, and Josh Gad plays LeFou.

“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” Condon told the publication.

“He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings,” he continued. “And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.”

The group One Million Moms is currently calling for a boycott of Disney, and has over 58,000 signatures on its pledge as of press time.

    Emma Watson is headed for Hell if she doesn’t get saved….turn or burn.

    • Chris

      Fundies are headed for hell if they don’t give up their ego worship. Turn or burn.

      I know you’ll agree since I’m just echoing you but inserting another target.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        You decide not a thing. Atheists believe nothing anyway. Fundies go to Heaven because of redemption. Those who conduct abortion go to hell because they are murderers. You must repent of your sins to get saved. John 3, Revelation 22.

    Thank you Emma. You’re an amazing caring humanitarian. 👍👍👍👏👏👏👏

  • Not Guilty

    Gee, Emma, your mom didn’t have an abortion, did she?

    • Ambulance Chaser

      She might have. She might not have. What’s your point?

      • Amos Moses

        still cant connect the dots i see ………..

        • Ambulance Chaser

          No, you can’t.

          • Amos Moses

            no … YOU cant …………

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        You are a fetus that survived and are alive. Value the life of your fellow fetuses unconditionally. That’s the point.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          I’m a fetus?

          • Delectable

            No, they’re much more intelligent.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Once you were. Inside or outside of a womb, human is always human fully since the conception. Psalm 139. Luke 1.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Bible verses aren’t medical texts.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            But the Word of God decrees what is right and wrong for all mankind. “You shall not murder.” (Exodus 20) Human life starts at conception. Killing the children out of inconvenience is heinous murder worse than Nazism.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            The Word of God decrees that? Prove the Bible is the Word of God. Or prove that God exists to have a Word.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You don’t believe in the Holy Bible; therefore the Holy Bible is true.

          • Bezukhov

            That has to be the strangest example of Logic I’ve ever seen.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            The most realistic logic. Every man must look into self and admit he is a sinner.

      • Coach

        She didn’t, her mom didn’t abort her, that’s the point not guilty was making.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Yes, so what?

  • Reason2012

    Would they “be the best” if it’s you someone else paid to end your life when you were in the womb?

    • Amos Moses

      or when you were not …………..

  • Ambulance Chaser

    Whatever. Her money, her choice.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      Americans should not use their money for Nazi cause. That’s not why the USA was created. The USA exists to bering everyone life and freedom and justice.

      • Ambulance Chaser

        Well you’re in luck. She’s not supporting any Nazi causes.

        • Grace Kim Kwon

          Abortion kills children. It IS Nazism in a different form.

          • Tangent002

            Abortion was illegal under the Nazis, at least for Aryan women.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Killing of the innocent human beings – it is the same for the Germans and Americans and Chinese. Abortion is murder. You guys are alive and well today only because the Church taught your parents that abortion is murder.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    The same kind of birds. She is so much prettier without the heavey make-up. Women and girls should value the life of human babies. Period.

  • Delectable

    Overpaid, emptyheaded tarts.

    • Lexical Cannibal

      Impotent, loudmouth imbecile. See, I can do it too. It’s kind of fun! Like a poetry form, but mean!

      Facile, uncreative stooge.

  • http://www.gmail.com/ David van Heerden

    I’m confused. This article says Watson plays the role of Belle. I thought she played the Beast?! She certainly seems amply equipped for the role.

  • InTheChurch

    Donating to the murder of children is the same as me driving the car after my buddies robbed a bank.

    • Chris

      Fetus’ are now children?

      • InTheChurch

        Yup, beating heart, developed limbs, functioning brain and moving. Yes, a child.

        • Chris

          If the fetus has to have all those things to be considered a child then, since the brain only begins to function around week 10-11 then it can’t be a child at conception.

          • InTheChurch

            the brain functions at 10-11 weeks, how about the heart?

          • Chris

            From the Texas Heart Institute “Before birth, the fetal heart does not have to pump blood to the lungs
            to pick up oxygen. In other words, the fetal heart does not need a
            separate pulmonary artery and aorta.”

            So it would seem that the heart begins to function much later.

          • InTheChurch

            I have read that the heart starts to beat at 16 days. Ok, so the heart is not doing it’s function but the heart is alive and beating. Or in your case, not alive and useless.

          • Chris

            Thank you for the insult. And here I was treating you with respect. I won’t make that mistake again.

          • InTheChurch

            Chris, if you are referring to the last statement, ok, a bit harsh and my bad, sorry. But, you have stated that you don’t think a fetus is alive, you minimize it and you don’t think much of it from your posts. So one can ASSume that you don’t care for the fetus or hold it in high regard.

          • Chris

            “But, you have stated that you don’t think a fetus is alive,…”

            Incorrect. It has the same level of life as a mass of cells.

            “…you minimize
            it…”

            Incorrect. I am recognising it as it is rather than romanticising it.

            “…and you don’t think much of it from your posts.”

            Incorrect. Life is important. The more developed it is the more important it is.
            It’s merely that since life gradually develops then a gradualist view is the only rational view.

            “So one can ASSume
            that you don’t care for the fetus or hold it in high regard.”

            I’ve always liked strawmen, don’t you?

          • InTheChurch

            I am man enough to know when I did wrong. Now knowing that you are a spiritual person, the statements make more sense. I was wrong about you and I am not ashamed to admit it.

          • Chris

            Thank you for your gracious apology.
