Emma Watson: 'I want to start taking more risks'

Emma Watson, the actress, has spoken of her life after the Harry Potter films, claiming she is now more confident and wants to start taking risks.



Published: 7:30AM GMT 06 Nov 2010



The 20-year-old, famous for playing Hermione Granger in the blockbuster series, said she wished she had “done more naughty things” and wants to make the most of being single.
However, she revealed that she rarely gets asked on dates by men and longs to fall in love.


In an interview with The Sun ahead of next week’s London premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – the final film of the series – Watson said she felt she was leaving her life as a child star behind.“Three months ago I cut my hair and at that moment I felt I became a woman,” she said.“At the moment I’m just happy to be single. I want to live life to the full. But I’m more grown up and confident now. I’m ready to take more risks. I feel less girlish than ever.“I’m very romantic and of course I want to be in love. But men don’t really ask me out.”Watson, who has amassed an estimated fortune of £20 million since beginning her acting career aged nine, is currently studying for a history degree in the US at Brown University, Rhode Island.She said she enjoys being able to avoid the limelight there, because she is not as well known in the US, but misses Britain. She claimed that one boyfriend had never heard of Harry Potter and had no idea she was a famous actress.Watson added that she has further acting projects in the pipeline but also wants to write a book and learn to play the mandolin.!!!

If she keeps mentioning her 20million pound fortune, I don't think she'll be without boyfriend applicants for very long. Although, I think you still have the inside track, Banjo, since you've already convinced her you never heard of Harry Potter! roflmao

Down Banjo. :P Though Emma is certainly a Cutie!
Hmmm ... Brown U. is only about 30 minutes away from Plainfield.
I could just trek on over and ask Emma if she be interested in having Banjo as her mandolin instructor. Or not. peeking

Trek on over there Larry ! At least you could get a picture. :lol: I wonder why she selected Brown ? She could be fairly anonymous in most U.S. universities. I'm sure she can find a mandolin teacher up there, but I can't think of any big name pro players who live up there.

Years ago when Brook Shields went to an eastern univ., I think it was in NYC, she had male students moving furniture into her apt. tongue

I can visualize myself being stopped (with Alice's words ringing in my head beatdown beatdown beatdown ) for stalking Emma around campus. I think not! nono
I could claim to be a photojournalist contracted by Banjo to document Emma's adjustment to American life. However, I don't envision myself as card-carrying paparazzo! devilsmiley

Heck ... I'd move furniture for Brooke Shields every day; twice on Sundays! :bounce:

Ah yes, but you can see NYC from almost anywhere in NJ.....right ? :lol:


"I could claim to be a photojournalist contracted by Banjo to document Emma's adjustment to American life."...........with 20 mill. pounds in the bank chances are any "adjustments" wouldn't be very traumatic. But seriously, where does she go from here, career-wise ? Are they so type-cast that more roles will be difficult to come by ? Of the bunch she probably has the best chances, being a pretty girl and all, and depending on how good her acting chops really are...

BTW, Dakota Fanning was picked as homecoming queen at her high school. A private school in CA. Aside from her obvious acting talent I've always gotten the impression that she is in the 'genius' range IQ-wise. Can't give evidence for that but it's just a feeling...

If she never knew how much she was making, then that's her parents fault, although I can't imagine that they were personally managing her money....they don't have agents to advise British film stars ? That seems unlikely.... But anyway....to feel "sick" ? I can't relate to that at all, but of course it would come as a surprise to anyone if they had been kept in the dark that long. And imagine what she would be worth without the
British tax system !

LONDON | Mon Nov 8, 2010 5:03pm EST
LONDON (Reuters) - "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson said that for years she had no idea how much money she was earning from her role as Hermione Granger in the hit movie franchise, and that she felt sick when she finally realized.Watson, 20, told the British edition of Vogue magazine's December issue that she was 17 or 18 years old when she had a "money conversation" with her father."By the third or fourth film, the money was starting to get ... serious. I had no idea. I felt sick, very emotional. It was a real shock," the actress told Vogue in the interview.Until then, she had been living on an allowance of about 50 pounds a week. She took a money management course and she now has an estimated fortune of about 20 million pounds.Watson, who is currently a student at Brown university in the United States, is pictured on the front cover of British Vogue sporting her new pixie-style short haircut. The magazine hits news stands on Thursday.She said she cut her hair after she finished shooting the final two movies in the "Harry Potter" series."For the nine years I was on 'Harry Potter' I was contractually obliged not to cut my hair, not to tan," she said. "All the normal things girls do, I couldn't. So when I got the chance to change my appearance, this is what I did."The seventh film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" opens in Britain, the United States and much of the world on November 19. The final movie will be released in July 2011.

It was nice to read that she took a money management course. I can't imagine finding out you are a millionaire at that age. But seriously, how did she not realize she was getting paid big money. HP is a very big deal world wide. I can't wait to see the last movies!

And I might "live once" very abruptly if I "go for it". She was on Letterman last night (who I normally don't watch due to his political leanings) but I made an exception for her, and she had a really knock - out dress on. Letterman made his usual offensive, personal remarks but she handled them gracefully and she is obviously very much more outgoing and at ease with the publicity chores compared to Kristen Stewart.

Then she was on Regis and Kelly this morning in a more subdued dress and told us that she is majoring in history at Brown Univ. She made a joke about being "ripped off" by the producers as to what she got paid... :lol: Her new hairdo is a little extreme for my tastes but she wanted to ditch Hermione's hairdo which she was contractually obligated to keep for all the movies.
