50 Shades of Emma

Sorry, but this was too good not to post today.

Back in February Aunt Giggles felt compeled to call me to the carpet for allegedly attacking poor little Emma Watson over this FaceBook, fem-popularized, meme.

In all honesty my intent with that post was to draw attention to a larger social convention, and Watson’s public declarations of ‘bringing sexy back’ that made androgynous, pixie-cut asexual women feel good about themselves was really just a convenient illustration. I mean, we all know what a horrible Man I am for revealing that it is in fact men who define what’s sexy about women, and questioning Emma’s sexiness and her commitment to “The Less you reveal the more people can wonder.”

Well, as curious as I am to report this, it appears that Emma has had a change of heart about her commitment to ‘revealing less’. You see Emma is actually more than comfortable with full frontal nudity now, so long as it’s in portraying Anastasia in the upcoming movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey.

“I’ve been saying since I was 16 that if it’s the right role and important for character development and the story, then of course I’ll do it,” the 22-year-old actress told Hello!

Ah! Such dedication to her craft, and she decided at 16 that she’d do it under the right circumstances. Run hamster, run! The celeb nude aficionados on 4 Chan are ready to welcome your craft with open arms. To think we’d live to see the day that it might no longer be necessary to clone Emmas face over the girls in bondage porn.

“It’s very exciting that people are starting to see me in a different way. It means that they’re allowing me the space to grow and develop and reincarnate myself.”

I wonder if that reincarnation will include growing out her hair to look sexier for the role? We can only hope. Then again, Emma’s not the only one with “dedication to her craft”, there are a lot of other starlets who’ve got more ‘sexy experience’ and are far readier to claw her eyes out to be sexually dominated:

Emma could also have some stiff competition when it comes to winning the honor of playing Anastasia Steele since many of the other fan favorites for the part have shown that they’re comfortable filming nude scenes. Kristen Stewart went topless in On the Road, and Emilia Clarke’s dragon queen character gets naked in almost every episode of Game of Thrones.

Emma Watson’s competition for the 50 Shades of Grey movie could also include Emmy Rossum, who has stripped down in Shameless. But perhaps Emily Browning should be the biggest favorite for the role of Anastasia Steele. The alluring actress was Stephenie Meyer’s top pick to play Bella in Twilight, but Emily never auditioned for the part. Instead the star of the family film Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events went on to shock her fans by starring in the 2011 movieSleeping Beauty, which is nothing like the Disney fairytale. The film actually feels a lot like 50 Shades since it’s about a bizarre sexual fetish, but instead of being tied up before having sex, Emily’s character is drugged so that she passes out. Needless to say, she was required to shoot a lot of nude scenes for her risqué role

,…and the God of Biomechanics laughed atop his throne of genitalia,…

I actually believe the comment she made at sixteen. Most of the actresses I know feel the same way. Women are willing to be sexualized as long as it’s on their terms and they have a certain amount a safety doing it. Being admired as part of an art and craft does that. Having some pervy photographer try to slide his lens up her skirt as she comes out of a club doesn’t. So, the real quote should be that Emma doesn’t want to be a sex object in certain situations to certain people and does to others – which… Read more »

The ability for girls to have two mutually-exclusive viewpoints at the same time is always astounding.

here is a question, there has been talk that porn and the ‘coming sexbot revolution’ will reinvert girls, that they will lose all their value because guys are getting their kicks without them…but my question is as follows, isnt THIS what we are seeing already with the vast expanse of porn out there, yet the girls as we all know are INSANE with their false high valuations of themselves.

Reminds me of a David X seminar I watched recently. He mentioned that there was some event where all the former Bond girls got together and discussed their roles, and despite most of them being feminists, they all enjoyed the experience of being portrayed as a womanizer’s sexual conquest.

She said that her ‘idea of sexy is less is more’.

She also said the idea of being sexy is ’embarrassing and confusing’.

Ergo, full-frontal nudity is not sexy or embarrassing and makes sense to EW’s hamster.

Well played, Emma.

Well played indeed. Tease the fan boys out with denials she’ll ever do nudity, play to their “good woman” ideals, go back and forth on the roll in separate interviews, ramp up the attention/tension/anticipation. Cash in for largest pile of cash and attention prizes at the height of her sexual attractiveness.

Everything that Watson says about “sexy” is spot on, and it was (briefly) encouraging to hear it in a sixteen-year-old. So she backslid. The temptations and pressures placed on starlets to backslide are practically irresistible. So what?

The celebrities will not lead the culture to a sustainable place. Their raison d’être is to promote vice, not virtue. Humble efforts, like those of Rollo’s daughter, will provide the needful leadership, one individual at a time.

Dammit! I went off half-cocked. I knew I should’ve mined Giggle’s response post before I posted this up. There’s so much gold in her ‘analysis’ in light of this. She is expressing that she doesn’t want to have to “be sexy” for the public. Well fucken ‘eh? One might think portraying this century’s version of Lady Chatterly in a BDSM context might qualify as ‘being sexy for the public’. She’s being true to herself, refusing to market fakery. Since her goal is not to be a sex symbol, but a serious actress, she refrains from displaying her most sexual self… Read more »

I would read this post from The Red Pill Room about The Female Social Matrix. http://theredpillroom.blogspot.com/2012/05/female-social-matrix-introduction.html Its long. Very long. But one of the most excellent pieces of writing in the manosphere. Women have to deal with the Female Social Matrix in a way that is a priority over any dealings with men. Ian Ironwood writes that sluts or slutty behavior is shamed among women because either one debases the whole Female Imperative. He says women determine their position relative to other women in both a local and global matrix. The are not only aware of their position in the… Read more »

Emma Watson may be a closet lesbian, who is (poorly) playing up her assumed heterosexuality for the benefit of her career.

If this is true, she won’t be able to keep up the charade forever.

Or, she may be bisexual, and if that’s the case, I’d not have any qualms about “having her over for dinner” with myself and my main squeeze.

Reminds me of Teri Weigel who had a quote in her Playboy centerfold article in 1986 where she said something along the lines of “porn is sick and disgusting”. And then 4 years later she was getting shtoinked on film, because when your best asset is your tits, that’s where the money is, and you can’t eat your principles.

And “the less you reveal the more people wonder” is a nod to Mae West’s “sexy isn’t what you have, it’s what people think you have”. And also is a good justification for wearing a burqa.

She’s not that pretty to begin with. I only found her attractive once IIRC through the entire HP series. And her dyke-do since then does nothing for her.

But I actually agree with her idea of “less is more” in celebrity world. How do you compete with the red carpet barely there dresses and/or Britney Spears-esque no panties upskirt shots? You can’t without being a total attention whore.

Being feminine and pretty but modest would actually make a woman stand out these days, IMO.

Rationalization Hamster indeed. While Emma’s Hamster is not of the same order of magnitude as other actresses and women, we shouldn’t forget Chloe Sevigny’s Godzilla sized hamster in justifying here unsimulated on-camera blow job on Vincent Gallo in ‘Brown Bunny’; “It’s a shame people write so many things when they haven’t seen it. When you see the film, it makes more sense. It’s an art film. It should be playing in museums. It’s like an Andy Warhol movie.” I don’t see Emma taking that road that far, it is instructive as to the degree women can rationalize anything. That and… Read more »

She was just a bit more analytic than most women and realizes that deep down her only value in the world is between her legs and contributes nothing else to society as a person. Once her looks are gone, her value is gone. She probably realized that it’s just a cold hard fact and needs to cash in before the earning potential has passed, forever.

Its astounding to see the difference in what attention does to a person between someone like Angie Varona and Emma.

Its clear that when the hamster is desperate for more social capital, then posing seductively is a logical path to pursue.

On the other hand, when the hamster has drowned in attention since childhood, posing seductively makes no sense. In the fem imperative, mission accomplished long ago.

Whats to keep Emma from feeling warm and fuzzy in her own bathroom with an iphone?

I’m still anticipating the predictable rationalizations from the femosphere about how she’s an empowered woman, bravely taking on such a challenging role to empower future generations of women. Emma is little more than a protracted masturbatory dream for the teenage guys who grew up with her since she was a tween, but the femosphere wants to cast her as some artistic savant with admirable feminine sensibilities. I can’t begin to recall how many women on FaceBook were circulating that photo-meme less than a year ago. I have no doubt the spin will be about how only a woman of her… Read more »

Last week I think it was, I saw a panel discussion of six feminists, one of whom was Erica Jong because she was promoting a book. Having been Red Pill aware for a year-and-a-half now, I watched and listened to what seemed like an alien language that I could not understand. The interviewer was also walking on eggshells the whole time so as not offend. When he asked if a woman can both be a feminist and be accepting of pornography, he was taken to task by Jong for the ‘typical male ignorance’ of his question. To give him his… Read more »

This reminds me of a post I read a few years ago regarding Beyonce Knowles. She sang about being a ‘survivor’ and an ‘independent woman’ and then married a guy who has songs where he says things like “You know I, thug ’em, fuck ’em, love ’em, leave ’em / Cause I don’t fuckin’ need ‘ em”.

“She is an attractive, brainy, talented woman who wants to keep it classy. Unlike so many young actresses who are all too willing to be plucked, bleached, lasered, cut and carved, vacuumed, implanted and airbrushed, Watson says, “That’s not me. I feel uncomfortable.” She’s being true to herself, refusing to market fakery. Since her goal is not to be a sex symbol, but a serious actress, she refrains from displaying her most sexual self to the public. She’s a modest young woman.”

All women are exhibitionists at heart. It’s just a question of providing the proper excuse for a woman to get nude. The hotter the women, the more she wants to show off. This is why, if you can give a woman the proper setting to strip – you’ll reap the rewards since it gets their motor running and they need to work out that excess sexual energy. This is especially true of young women if you are an older man. They are used to being told “don’t do that” by their elders, but to reverse it and tell her to… Read more »

You know, I could almost buy the “maturation of an actress” bullshit if she was displaying her tits in some intellectual, artistic foreign movie for the Cannes Film Festival. 50 Shades is famous for being ‘porn for women’. Even if Emma gets turned down for the role (which I doubt) she still expressed an enthusiastic interest in playing Anastasia. Once again confirming her ‘conviction’ as “inane post-pubescent aphorisms”. Barring cold feet on her part, I’m almost certain Emma will get the role in favor of the other suggested actresses because, what movie producer wouldn’t want to pair up the movie… Read more »

“You know, I could almost buy the “maturation of an actress” bullshit if she was displaying her tits in some intellectual, artistic foreign movie for the Cannes Film Festival.” Well, I’m not buying that because there’s all too much rationalization of shitty behavior and lack of skill in the name of “art”. I’m not just referencing film but visual art and music as well. If anything the trend is for actresses to reveal themselves in increasingly graphic fashion. Often exposing themselves in films and in some cases getting fucked on camera in graphic detail just as much as porn stars.… Read more »
