Earlier this week, we reported that actress Emma Watson was being threatened with a nude photo leak as a result of a speech she recently gave at the United Nations.

The threats were posted on the photo-sharing site 4Chan, which had previously hosted stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence, as well as the dozens of other female celebrities who were affected by the Hollywood hacking scandal.

Today, we learned that the whole thing was a carefully coordinated stunt by a company called Rantic Marketing.

The website EmmaYouAreNext.com - which had previously featured a clock counting down the seconds until Watson's hacked photos would be posted online - now simply redirects to Rantic's homepage.

Even more ridiculous than the capaign itself is Rantic's strategy for justifying its actions:

Over the weekend, Emma Watson gave a speech at the United Nations about the need for worldwide gender equality.

The speech went viral and millions were moved by Watson's words.

Unfortunately, in the case of some of insane 4Chan users, they were moved to violent hatred.

4Chan, as you may know, is the site where the now-infamous nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and dozens of other female celebrities were first leaked. 

Watson spoke out about the leak when it first happened, and has since been the subject of a disturbing amount of attention from angry young men on the site's message boards.

After her speech, the focus on Watson went from unsettling to genuinely scary, as users have begun gleefully counting down the days until nude photos of Watson will supposedly be posted to the site this weekend.

Taylor Swift is known for many things: her music, her relationships, and now more than ever - her flawless sense of style!

Yes, after a year of treating Manhattan like her own personal catwalk, Taylor has been named People magazine's Best Dressed Woman of 2014.

Taylor rockin' the red carpet, as usual.

If you haven't been paying attention to Taylor's NYC style, she's basically been schooling the entire city on how to look flawless for every occasion.

Taylor even looks perfect leaving the gym, and if you've ever sweated through your Under Armour after 4 minutes on the elliptical, you know what a feat that is.

Yes, Taylor's New York hotness is a vast improvement on her old girl-next-door look. Even so, some feel that People's pick has a lot to do with the fact that Swifty's got a new album to promote.

Suri Cruise. Shiloh Pitt. Nori West. Prince George. Blue Ivy Carter.

These celebrity offspring are the result of two near-perfect specimens coming together to reproduce. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? Not perfect.

But they sure do make cute babies. (RIP Joan Rivers.)

We thought we'd take a look at a few other celebrity face mashups to see what the resulting individual might look like. The results? Take a look:

Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick
Is it just us or do Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick make the most beautiful woman in the world?

The results? The results are freaking perfection, that's what!

Seriously, could science just hurry up and figure out a way to let Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick morph genetically and become one person?

It's 2014! Why isn't this possible!?! We have no idea.

Emma Watson is condemning not only this week's stunning celebrity nude picture scandal but the lack of empathy shown by commenters in its aftermath.

Emma Watson is Pretty

Watson lamented the "lack of empathy" shown by social media users over the breech of privacy that saw hundreds of intimate celebrity photos leaked.

The Jennifer Lawrence nude photos hit particularly close to home for Emma, as the two stars are friends. Watson personally has yet to be victimized.

Nevertheless, she decried the scandal on Twitter, writing:

"Even worse than seeing women's privacy violated on social media is reading the accompanying comments that show such a lack of empathy."

At least one prominent female actress would agree.

Girls star Lena Dunham called the hacker a sex offender and lambasted fans who said the celebs brought it on themselves for taking nude pics to begin with.

Celebrity siblings are sort of a weird case study in everything from family dynamics to facial features.

Do the younger siblings try to become famous because of the older siblings? Are they trying to make their own name on merit or just riding on coat tails?

What happens when the celebrity siblings look so much alike people get them confused!? How's it possible to make a name for yourself if everyone thinks you're someone else!?

Check out 17 celebrity sibling duos who might actually be the same person.

Pippa and Kate Middleton
Pippa Middleton might have the better...ASSETS...but she and sister Kate Middleton definitely got the same amazing smile.

Then there's the possibility we're all being punked by some elaborate conspiracy. Maybe these famous sibling sets aren't actually siblings at all.

It makes you think. And blame the Illuminati.

And then there are the celebrity look-alikes, those who aren't related but might as well be. Heck, some of these look more like other celebs than their actual siblings ...

Late on Wednesday night, Reddit posed two simple questions to users:

Do you have a celebrity look-a-like? If so, can you share a side-by-side comparison?

And a handful of users responded in the affirmative to both inquiries, some of them supplying the Internet with photos that look eerily similar to those of their famous dopplegangers.

Seriously, let's be sure to keep all sharp knives away from the first dude featured below and let's all sit back and wonder just how much tail the guy who looks like Channing Tatum brings in...

Michael C. Hall
WHOA! Keep all sharp knives away from this man.

It's a good day to be a fan of Emma Watson.

First, you woke up to news that JK Rowling has brought Hermione and company back to (adult) life in a new short story.

And now you're learning that Watson has been named Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women.

U.N. Women is a branch of the United Nations devoted to gender equality, and Watson has the honor of becoming the first appointment under Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, who became U.N. Women’s executive director in 2013.

Celebrities, the objects of our obsessions, pretty faces for whom we pine, hot bodies of both the male and female variety. But they're more than just the sum of their parts.

They're actually pretty darn smart, too. Well, some of them are.

We could argue that all of them are smart for being able to make a career out of being on television and in movies and getting paid to wear designer clothes.

On the flip side, we have the likes of Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber to consider. We're not calling them dumb, but...

Anyway, there are a shocking number of Ivy Leaguers, magna cum laude graduates and members of Mensa in Hollywood. Forget film and TV; they've published papers and earned Ph.Ds. 

Here are 31 celebrities who are really, really smart ...

Danica McKellar might not have been as good a dancer as the others, but she's better at math than them. She's authored four books advocating math education for girls.

Emma Watson did not require a sorting hat to determine her future this weekend.

The beloved 24-year Harry Potter star took a major step toward deciding it for herself when she walked across the stage at Brown University on Saturday and graduated with a degree in English Literature.

Impressive stuff!

The actress, forever best known for portraying Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise, has been enrolled in the Ivy League institution since 2009.

She once said she "belonged" at the school because she threw a birthday party for herself and not a single photo went online from it; she has always been treated just like any other student there.

Clearly excited over the accomplishment, Watson posted the above photo on Twitter along with a one character caption: !.
