If her latest appearances in Perks of Being a Wallflower, This Is The End, and her up and coming role as lead character Nicki in Sofia Coppola’s hotly anticipated film The Bling Ring are anything to go by, Emma Watson has been on an acting role of late.
However, in a recent interview with Total Film, the 23-year-old revealed that she almost quit acting for good following the Harry Potter films coming to an end in 2011. Questioning whether acting was the right career for her, Emma Watson took a conscious hiatus from Hollywood, enrolling at Brown University where it is reported she will be soon be returning in September after a two year interval. She explained: "I basically took two years out and stepped as far away from it as I could - I mean the Harry Potter films were still coming out but I took time to really try and figure out who I was and what I wanted to do. I even considered not being an actress."
Speaking about the pressures of Hollywood, the Harry Potter starlet also revealed her insecurities and fears. She said: “It’s weird – sometimes [success] can be incredibly validating, but sometimes it can be incredibly unnerving and throw your balance off a bit, because you’re trying to reconcile how you feel about yourself with how the rest of the world perceives you.'
