Emma Watson is said to be shocked that an apparently fake image of her with just a towel around her waist is being e-mailed among her classmates at Brown University.

According to the Daily Mail, Emma is trying to seek out the source of the image so she can put a stop to it. She says the picture is a fake.

Emma's spokesman said: "There have been a number of nude fakes over the past two months. Emma has seen them and finds them tiresome. People should know better."

This comes days after Emma gave a candid interview to Marie Claire, during which she called her friends at Brown "protective." "I found a great group of girlfriends," she told the mag. "Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me. They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I'm part of it."
