Emma Watson Goes (Gasp!) Nude – But For a Very Good Cause
A new book, ‘Natural Beauty,’ features nude portraits of Emma Watson and other environmentally conscious celebs in an effort to raise funds for Global Green USA. Get a sneak peek here!
You guys! Pictures of Emma Watson naked have hit the Internet! But they’re not leaked cellphone photos—they’re gorgeous, color-saturated portraits, and they’re for a very good cause.
According to MTV.com, Emma will be appearing in the new book Natural Beauty—and, indeed, the actress Tweeted the news herself a few days ago. What’s the story? You see, James Houston, a New York-based photographer, began shooting portraits of environmentally conscious stars in 2012. Each portrait took its inspiration from the beauty of nature; Houston’s plan was to use them in a project to raise funds for the non-profit Global Green USA. An affiliate of Green Cross International, Global Green USA is geared towards fostering a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future. For 20 years, the organization has been advocating smart solutions to global warming; the green building projects they’ve advocated create affordable housing and other buildings for schools, cities, and communities that save money, improve health, and create green jobs. What’s not to love?
Houston assembled all those nude celeb portraits he’s been shooting—which, besides Emma, include Christy Turlington, Elle Macpherson, and Adrian Grenier—into a book, Natural Beauty. Said the photographer about the book, “This project merges my longtime interest in the human form and my passion for the natural world. Natural Beauty was created to celebrate the beauty of nature, emphasizing what we still have versus what we have lost. I hope to raise environmental awareness among the younger audience through this project.” You’ll be able to snag it from Amazon starting on April 30.
Houston will also be releasing a 12-part webseries about the making of Natural Beauty, which will premiere on YouTube next Monday, March 25. Check out the trailer here:
