Emma Watson Is Putting Her Acting Career on Hold — Report
After the Harry Potter saga ended, we couldn’t wait to see what our Hermione Granger — aka Emma Watson — would do next. Emma surprised us all by leaving jolly ol’ England behind for the real, American college experience at Brown University. But eventually she did get the acting bug again and she put finishing her studies on hold. Now, it looks like the actress is headed back to Providence to finish up her degree — and the acting roles will have to wait.
When Emma returned to films a few years back, she took Hollywood by storm with her striking talent. Her roles in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Bling Ring impressed a lot of industry bigwigs, and she rose to the top of many a casting list. But however in-demand she may currently be, reports say that the 23-year-old has put school back at the top of her list of priorities.
"Emma is in demand with Hollywood directors but has so much to focus on with her studies, that she has had to pass on a few things — she simply can’t do everything," a source told the UK’s Daily Mirror. "It’s tough but she believes it was the right thing."
According to the pub, Emma is set to graduate this May (with a degree in English), so she is putting all auditions and scripts on the backburner until then. Respect, girl! An education is important, though don’t forget to come back to us when you’re done!
In the mean time, we can look forward to the upcoming March release of her latest film, Noah, in which she plays the adopted daughter of Russell Crowe’s Noah (yes, of the Ark).
