The 27-year-old actress is one of the most vocal feminists in Hollywood, and Emma has now come out in support of Gracie, who cited an "indefensible" difference in salaries between men and women as she resigned from the world-famous broadcaster.

Emma said, according to ELLE magazine: "By making these commitments public, we need to be holding these organisations accountable... and I think what has happened tonight with that resignation is a really good example that you've got to follow through.

"You've got to back up what you're saying and it's important and we will hold you accountable."

In 2017, Emma offered her own definition of feminism after she was criticised for posing for a revealing photograph in Vanity Fair magazine.

The 'Beauty and the Beast' actress shared: "It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is.

"Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It's about freedom, it's about liberation, it's about equality."

Emma revealed she was confused as to why the image had caused so much controversy.

She confessed: "I really don't know what my t**s have to do with it. It's very confusing. I'm confused. Most people are confused. No, I'm just always just quietly stunned."
