Emma Watson shows off her abs

Looking lean! Emma Watson shows off her toned midriff in stomach-baring crop top as she hits the gym


As Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, Emma Watson rarely has an occasion to show off her figure.

But, clearly proud of her toned physique, the 21-year-old actress decided to wear a pink sports bra and very low-slung leggings to display her toned midriff as she hit the gym.

Emma teamed her exercise clothes with a grey jumper tied around her waist and a headband to keep her hair out of her eyes.

Miss Watson, who is worth an estimated £24million, has been single since splitting with musician and model George Craig last year.

Her final appearance as magician Hermione Granger is in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part II, released in July.

Emma has clearly been working hard on her physique, with not an inch of fat to be seen on her lean figure as she headed back to her temporary home in Pittsburgh yesterday.

However, talking about her figure recently, Emma said staying slim isn’t something she constantly worries about – she is more concerned about staying healthy.

In a recent inerview, Emma said: ‘It’s just not something that I aspire to, to be super-skinny. It’s not inspirational at all for me.

‘I’m lucky that I’m this size naturally. I don’t diet…I love chocolate and pasta and I love baking. I make a great raspberry amaretto cake!

There is so much pressure on girls our age to be smart and pretty and funny and skinny – they have to be everything.

‘I definitely know what that pressure is like, but my philosophy is to eat what you like and be healthy and exercise.’

Emma is in Pittsburgh working on her latest film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

She plays high school senior Sam in the film, adapted from the 1999 book by Stephen Chbosky.

Sam and step-brother Patrick take protagonist Charlie under their wings and expose him to their hard-partying, drug-fuelled world.

The hard-hitting storyline deals with suicide, abortion, homosexuality and child abuse, and the film is slated for release next year.
