In an interview on French-Canadian talk show Tout Le Monde En Parle, Swift said she would have "proudly claimed" to be a feminist at an earlier age if she saw Watson's talk when she were younger.

Swift continued her praise for Watson saying that she was "happy to live in a world" where Watson spoke about feminism and that it was an "incredible thing" to witness.

Last week, Watson was commended for delivering an inspiring speech about gender equality at the United Nations Headquarters.
