On being asked by Seth Meyers on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she said, “It’s a term of endearment and in England it means vagina but in the U.S., where I spend most of my time, it doesn’t mean anything. We commemorated our friendship with ‘minge’ tattoos.”

Forget Grammar Rules. Emma’s “Times Up” is Cool:
Oscars 2018 ceremony saw the actress with a cursive tattoo on her arm. And the tattoo read #TimesUp. Although the tattoo was cool, it was trolled for its grammar error. The ink has a missing apostrophe, displaying “Times Up” rather than “Time’s Up”.
The actresses responded over the things hilariously as she tweeted
