In promotional mode as the release of the final "Harry Potter" is less than a month away, Emma Watson is featured in the July 2011 issue of UAE's University magazine.
The Hermione Granger hottie stylishly posed for a range of photos taken by photographer Mariano Vivanco while chatting with the publication about topics ranging from shortening her hair, the new "Harry Potter" film and being addicted to learning.
On whether or not she's worried about always being seen only as her "Potter" character:
"Itís funny, everyone keeps asking me that. I donít feel scared at all. She is such an amazing role, such an amazing character. I donít really want people to forget."
On role models as far as actresses are concerned:
"Thereís a few: Jodie Foster, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman. Those are the kind of actresses that I idolize I guess. But I follow my own path I think."
On shortening up her hairdo:
ďWith short hair youíve got to be a bit bolder, thereís nothing to hide behind. So itís made me be bolder in my fashion choices. Itís actually made me more confident as a person I think. Iím not sure why that is. But it has.Ē
On whether her massive bank account and height of stardom are scary:
"The fame aspect has certainly been intimidating and overwhelming at times. And that kind of stigma that surrounds being a child actress. Journalists have actually asked me ďdo you think youíre messed up?Ē I donít know what they expect me to say. I donít know really how to answer. But from the get-go, thereís always been that kind of expectation that we were sort of doomed in a way. But I donít feel that way. Actually the fame was quite progressive. It sort of built, it didnítÖit got bigger and bigger as time went on. I was known for Hermione before I was known for being Emma Watson. So itís been more of a gentle transition into that."
On the frightening scenes from the final "Harry Potter" film:
ďIt was a bit scary at times. We didnít really have much training or much warning sometimes. As much as they can prepare you or put stunt doubles in there, thereís a certain amount that you have to do yourself. You canít get away from doing nothing. I guess that was scary.Ē
On keeping so busy with school and work despite being financially set for life:
"I just love learning. Iím like addicted to learning. I just want to know as much as I possibly can. Itís never enough for me. And Iíll never stop. I just really love knowledge. Addicted!"
