Emma Watson will next be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Actress Emma Watson says she does not
want to only focus on acting as she wants the chance to
pursue other things in her life.
The 22-year-old beauty, who is set to return to Brown
University in America in January to complete her degree, said
she feels happiest when pursuing something creative but also
wants the chance to live her own life, reported Contactmusic.
"I'd like to be considered a good, versatile actress. I
feel happiest when doing something creative - writing,
painting, acting or dancing, so I think I'll always complement
the acting with something else. If you act all the time,
you're spending your life living other people's lives.
"Really I'd quite like it if things calm down a bit and I
think that will happen naturally," she said.
Watson, who shot to fame when she was cast as Hermione
Granger in the Harry Potter film series aged just nine, will
next be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and she fell
in love with the script as soon as she read it.
"It's not some wild break away from Harry Potter
because I don't really want to get away from Harry Potter,
I've never seen it as a shackle."
