Emma Watson REFUSES to wear a corset for Beauty and the Beast


Emma Watson has refused to wear a corset for her latest movie, Beauty and the Beast.

The actress is taking the princess to a whole new level, and believes she's a more 'active princess'. Oh, and did we mention she's made her into an inventor as well?

The film's costume designer, Jacqueline Durran said: "In Emma’s reinterpretation, Belle is an active princess. She did not want a dress that was corseted or that would impede her in any way.

“The dress was designed with easy, active moment in mind – Watson isn’t wearing a corset underneath.”

In the original Disney flick, Belle is the ultimate bookworm, while her father is an inventor, but Emma turned the tables on that one too, making Belle into a creator herself.

She recently told Entertainment Weekly: "I was like, ‘Well, there was never very much information or detail at the beginning of the story as to why Belle didn’t fit in, other than she liked books. Also what is she doing with her time?’

“So, we created a backstory for her, which was that she had invented a kind of washing machine, so instead of doing laundry, she could sit and use that time to read instead. So, we made Belle an inventor.”

We don't think anyone else could play a princess so perfectly.
