Tweets Suggest Allison Mack Had Her Eye on Emma WatsonApril 24, 2018 12:25pm

"I'm a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women's movement I think you'd dig. I'd love to chat if you're open." What may have sounded like a friendly invitation when it was tweeted in January 2016 has turned nefarious, at least in the New York Daily News' eyes.

It reports Smallville actress Allison Mack tweeted that line to Emma Watson, and the Daily News sees it as evidence that Mack was trying to recruit the actress into a cult-like group called Nxivm (pronounced NEX-ium).

Mack was last week charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy for her alleged role as a slave "master" for the group founded by Keith Raniere.

The DOJ accused Mack of operating under the guise of "female mentorship" when trying to recruit women.

She went back to Watson on Twitter the following month, tweeting, "I participate in a unique human development & women's movement I'd love to tell you about. As a fellow actress I can relate so well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you're willing to chat." Business Insider notes she reached out a third time that year, on International Women's Day.

The Daily News notes Mack also contacted singer Kelly Clarkson in mid-2013 with a lighter message inviting Clarkson to "chat sometime." Mack has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her, and could face life if convicted.
