5 pics that prove Emma Watson makes the perfect Belle

Cape Town – Emma Watson is a lot more like Belle from Beauty and the Beast than you think!

We’ve seen her in a sneak peek of the live action version of the Disney animation and we’ve seen her in those iconic yellow and blue dresses.

But Emma actually embodies her character in real life too.

We all know Belle is obsessed with books (Beast gives her his library in the animation) and so is Emma.

The British actress started a feminist book club called Our Shared Self and opened it for pretty much anyone to join.

Each month Emma selects a new book that relates to equality in some form for her followers to read and discuss.

And she likes to have fun with it too!

For the November/December book, Emma joined forces with Books on the Underground to secretly share the read with people taking the underground.

Here are 5 pics of Emma and her books that gave us major Belle vibes:
