The newest member of the Emma Watson Fan Club is none other than Taylor Swift, who shared her thoughts on Watson's much-discussed U.N. speech on gender equality and feminism while appearing on the Canadian talk show Tout Le Monde En Parle.

"I wish when I was younger, I wish when I was 12 years old, I'd been able to watch a video of my favorite actress explaining in such an intellectual, beautiful, poignant way the definition of feminism," Swift said. "I would have understood it and earlier on in my life would have proudly claimed that I was a feminist, because I would have understood what the word means."
