From the Independent:

Speaking in the video, Watson says: “Paolo is someone I have always wanted to work with. His photos look like these unbelievable paintings. It’s lovely to have the narrative behind the still image. I think that makes it a richer image.”

From Vogue:

Summer’s in full swing, but Pirelli has just closed next year’s calendar, a tribute to the heroine of Romeo and Juliet. True to Shakespeare’s play, the photographer Paolo Roversi shot images in Verona, Italy, as well as in the city he calls home, Paris. But in keeping with the spirit of the times, for 2020 this production is all Juliets (yes, plural), shown variously in costume, in situ, and IRL.

In an exclusive interview, Roversi said the classic served as a springboard for a make-believe construct about a director in search of “his” Juliet. “There’s no Romeo here, there are only Juliets who show up for a casting call, respond to questions, and reveal their own version of the character before re-enacting a passage from the tragedy, in costume,” he explained. “What was very moving was to see actresses of this level audition like it was their first casting. There’s something so innocent, naïve, and sincere about it that really corresponds to Juliet.” In a neat piece of cinema verité, that is how a short feature film—a first for Pirelli, and a standalone work directed by Roversi in tandem with shooting the calendar—plays out.

In the end, Roveri cast not one but nine Juliets, a diverse gathering. American actors Yara Shahidi, Kristen Stewart, and Indya Moore keep company with singers—the Chinese artist Chris Lee and the Spanish artist Rosalia—as well as the British actresses Claire Foy, Mia Goth, and Emma Watson, and Roversi’s daughter, the Franco-Italian artist Stella Roversi. “I wanted a true casting, with women who would correspond to a kind of a journey featuring women of today from different countries and cultures,” he said. “Every one of them was marvelous. They all brought intensity and lots of emotion to a project that above all glorifies beauty and love.”

Is she trying to imply that love is a purely female thing?

Unfortunately, I'm not sure it's good or bad for her career. As for Pirelli, around 2016 it change from semi erotic calendar for men with half naked models, to a feminist, politically correct calendar for nobody.
