Emma Watson Tops AskMen's 99 Outstanding Women List
In addition to her many accolades, the Harry Potter star also just topped AskMen's list of the 99 Most Outstanding Women – a big difference from her spot at No.5 on the mag's list of most desirable women last year.
"This year's list is not only a reflection of a shift in the media, but also a shift in modern male thinking," publisher James Bassil said. "We wanted to steer away from 'hot' lists and highlight women who have demonstrated a sheer influence in their industry. We were looking for women who are doing something new this year, something that demonstrates their versatility and raw talent."
As for why Emma landed in the number one spot, the website listed her work with the U.N., including her HeforShe Campaign and inspirational International Women's Day speech, among other things.
"For those who grew up alongside the actors in the Harry Potter movies, it's strange to see just how damn accomplished Emma Watson has become," the site also stated. "Not content with being smart, rich and talented, she's spent much of her time working to end gender discrimination. Hell, at 24 years old, she makes almost everyone seem lazy."
As for the other celebs that followed behind Emma on the list, UFC fighting champ Ronda Rousey came in at No. 2, Kim Kardashian landed in third and Taylor Swift nabbed the fourth spot.
