"It always amazes me how many preconceived and misunderstood ideas there are about what feminism really is", explains in the video. "Feminism is giving women the possibility to choose. It is not a bat with which to hit other women. It's freedom, it's liberation, it's equality ".
And finally he added: "I have no idea what my tits have to do with this. It's very confusing.".
In that same interview was the actor Dan Stevens, who gives life to the Beast in the film and who we all know for his role in Downtown Abbey. The conversation between the two is also very clarifying when he asks Emma about what the people are saying about her and the actress replies: "They say I can't be a feminist and ...".
