Emma Watson has joked that she’s hiring a “fake tattoo proofreader” after fans spotted a typo in the new temporary tattoo she revealed at an Oscar party on Sunday.
The Brown University graduate showed up at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party with a tattoo on her right inner forearm that said “Times Up,” honouring the Time’s Up movement against sexual harassment.
It was noticeably missing an apostrophe.
After fans pointed out the error, the actress joked on Twitter that she was hiring a “fake tattoo proofreader.”
Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must.

Hi Emma – I'd like to apply for the job. My experience with apostrophes consists in being able to differentiate 'Emma, *you're* perfect' from 'I'd like to be *your* boyfriend.'
