"Harry Potter" star Emma Watson is ready to go full on topless for her latest movie, "Regression," an American-Spanish thriller set to be released on Aug. 28, 2015.
It looks like "Harry Potter" alumna Emma Watson is slowly transitioning from her wholesome image as a child actress to more adult films in a sexy new role where she exposes her breasts, banishing the innocent Hermione from "Harry Potter" fans’ minds forever.
The 24-year-old British actress has been cast alongside Ethan Hawke in this risqué thriller that may either make or break her career. The Alejandro Amenábar-helmed film is set in a small town in Minnesota in 1990. Watson plays Angela, a young woman who accuses her father of sexually abusing her despite his not remembering any of it, with Hawke essaying the role of the detective who investigates the case.
David Thewlis, who played werewolf Remus Lupin in the "Harry Potter" movies, is also in the cast as a psychologist who tries to help Angela’s father bring back his memories of the abuse in what becomes a nationwide mystery in the film.
Perhaps this is Watson's way of pre-empting hackers who’ve threatened to release nude photos of her online after her much-lauded UN speech on gender equality last September 2014.
On the other hand, "Regression" may be her way of transitioning from teenager to adult, with her post-"Harry Potter" projects becoming more risqué through the years, starting from her breakthrough role in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" to her “f-bomb” dropping persona in "This Is the End" and her fast scenes as Nicki in "Bling Ring." She’s also posed in the nude, or close to it, in James Houston’s photobook on Natural Beauty launched last March 2013.
"Regression" was previewed in US cinemas where a moviegoer was reported by News.com as saying Watson's topless scene was “useless and ineffective.”
“You can see her breasts but they are partially obscured. I think she may have been wearing pasties to cover her nipples,” the moviegoer stated.
Pasties or no, Britain’s 2014 most stylish awardee is breaking new ground where she could very well emerge as victorious as former Disney child actress, Anne Hathaway.
