Actress Emma Watson sat down with the youngest ever Nobel Prize winner in an interview posted online Wednesday.
The Facebook video shows the Harry Potter actress interviewing 18-year-old Malala Yousafzai about her life and advocacy.
Yousafzai is the subject of the documentary He Named Me Malala, which looks at the events leading up to a Taliban attack on the Pakistani schoolgirl and Yousafzai’s subsequent advocacy in the aftermath.
Watson says that the most profound moment was when Yousafzai identified herself as a feminist, saying that she was surprised to hear the Yousafzai use the hot-button word.
“I think this gesture is so emblematic of what Malala and I went on to discuss. I’ve spoken before on what a controversial word feminism is currently,” Watson wrote on Facebook. “I want to make it a welcoming and inclusive movement. Let’s join our hands and move together so we can make real change. Malala and I are pretty serious about it but we need you.”
