Emma Watson declares her love for Steve Carell as she sends handwritten letter thanking him for support

Published

You probably didn't take much notice of Steve Carell's cufflinks on the night of the Oscars, but they've caught the attention of the world after Emma Watson took to social media, thanking him for his fashion choices. 

The actor was wearing special #HeForShe cufflinks, designed in support of Watson’s gender equality United Nations campaign, and the actress has penned a thank you letter for backing her campaign at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

In the handwritten note, which she shared on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram the British star, 24, told Carell she was his biggest fan: "You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favourite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love."

"I think you’re so awesome and today you are wearing ‪#‎HeForShe‬ Monique Péan cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality," she continued. "Couldn’t be more proud! THANK YOU".

"Dear Steve Carell,

You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favourite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love, I hated that guy you played in The Way Way Back, and then you were mind-blowing in Foxcatcher. I think you’re so awesome and today you are wearing ‪#‎HeForShe‬ Monique Péan cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality. Couldn’t be more proud! THANK YOU.

Love,
Emma x"

Thought this letter was brilliant? The UN Ambassador for Women recently took matters into her own hands to squash rumours that she was dating Prince Harry, writing on Twitter: "Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?"

The speculation started following an article in Australian women’s magazine Woman’s Day, which quoted “a source close to pair” saying “He’s smitten – and it’s more than Emma's looks.”

The actress followed her rebuttal on Sunday with the message "marrying a Prince not a prerequisite for being a Princess" inspired by Alfonso Cuarón's 1995 film The Little Princess.

Watson launched the UN's He For She campaign in September 2014, calling for men to help end global gender inequality.

“When aged eight, I was accused of being bossy because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents but the boys were not. When at 14 I started to be sexualise by certain elements of the media. When at 15 my girlfriends dropped out of the sports they loved because they didn’t want to appear muscly, when at 18 my male friends were unable to express themselves, I decided that I was a feminist,” she said in a speech at the time.
