Just when we thought we couldn't love Emma Watson any more than we already did, she goes ahead and proves us wrong with some seriously wise words.

The 23-year-old actress has been more on top of her style game than ever on the press tour for her new film "Noah." However, it turns out she has some choice words for the fashion industry -- more specifically its negative effect on young women, and its unrealistic approach to beauty. In an interview with The Guardian, she explains:

As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I've made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that's dangerously unhealthy. I'm excited about the ageing process. I'm more interested in women who aren't perfect. They're more compelling.

While we can all agree that Ms. Watson is absolutely gorgeous, it is refreshing to hear that she is not only aware of the dangers from industry pressure, but seemingly has a handle on them as well. Cheers to imperfections, Emma!
