Emma Watson turned heads at the Oscars with a new 'Time's Up' tattoo on her arm, causing many fans of the star to question whether it was actually real. The 27-year-old has since confirmed that the inking is fake, and joked about the temporary tattoo's grammatical error. The tattoo aimed to shed light onto the 'Time's Up' movement regarding sexual harassment in Hollywood, but viewers were quick to point out that an apostrophe was missing from 'Time's', making it grammatically incorrect. One fan took to Twitter to joke: "Well however bad your day's been... you could always be Emma Watson(')s tattoo artist!"

Emma admitted her tattoo was fake

The Harry Potter actress poked fun at herself for the mistake, tweeting: "Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must." Her fans jumped at the chance, with one writing: "Not only am I good with apostropohes, I'm also very adequate when using the oxford comma," while another added: "Quits job as a book editor to read fake tattoos for @EmmaWatson, has 'no ragrats'."

Emma has been a longtime campaigner for women's equality, and recently spearheaded a new UK part of the 'Time's Up' movement, and donated an incredible £1million to the victims of sexual harassment. She also signed an open letter about sexual harassment that was signed by 190 female stars, which read: "This movement is intersectional, with conversations across race, class, community, ability and work environment, to talk about the imbalance of power." Others actresses to sign the letter included Keira Knightley, Jodie Whittaker and Saoirse Ronan. In 2014 Emma was appointed UN Women Goodwill ambassador, and that same year helped launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe, which calls for men to advocate gender equality.
