Actress Emma Watson is taking legal action after photographs of her were stolen.

The pictures of the Beauty And The Beast star show her trying on outfits during a fitting.

But her spokesman, who could give no details on who stole the images, made it clear they did not show the actress nude.

He said on Wednesday: "Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen.

"They are not nude photographs.

"Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further."

The news comes days after the 26-year-old was criticised for posing topless in a shoot for Vanity Fair magazine.

Images of the actress wearing a bolero jacket with nothing underneath triggered a backlash as some accused her of being hypocritical given her strong feminist stance.

She told the BBC at the time: "Feminism is about giving women choice, feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women.

"It's about freedom, it's about liberation, it's about equality.

"I really don't know what my tits have to do with it."
