A glamorous look from Emma Watson gets your attention on the cover of the July issue of Vogue.
The 21 year-old actress reveals her struggle with balancing all of her projects and education, her love of the artistic life, costar Daniel Radcliffe, how James Franco helped her figure things out and how she wants control after Harry Potter:
On the Harry Potter ‘bubble’ and Breaking Free: “I have had no control over my life … I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.”
On Inspiration from Patti Smith: “I want to live like Patti. I want to write like Patti … The book [her 2010 memoir Just Kids] was so honest and brave. I loved the way she sees the world. I really felt that life was more beautiful after I read it, and I felt more hopeful.”
On Daniel Radcliffe: “He understood what his role was … not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him.”
On Getting A Helping Hand From James Franco: “It was such a relief to speak to someone who is trying to do the same thing I’m doing. I talked to him about juggling studying and making films and going backward and forward. He’s not afraid or limited by what he fears people will say about it.”

“Something I wanted to do at the end of this amazing year and especially on my birthday was give back to something I really believe in, which is education,” says Swift. “The schools that I went to and the amazing people I got to learn from really turned me into who I am, and I wanted to give back.”
The generous gift will be used to at schools Swift has either attended or worked with in the past and will buy books, pay teacher’s salaries and pay for other educational programs in need. One more reason to love Sweetheart Swift.

Emma Watson is seriously contemplating a future that does not involve acting. The teen is unsure of how it will fit into her life after she attends college this fall and beyond the Harry Potter films she is contracted for, Watson is not all that keen on pursuing a life in front of the cameras.
She says, “It’s weird, because I’ve always felt uncertain that acting is what I wanted to do. Just because this has happened to me doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the right thing.”
It is difficult for many actors to leave the limelight once they have a taste of fame. Natalie Portman and Jodie Foster are two examples of very intelligent actresses who went on to college, only to be lured back to the big screen. We will have to wait to see what Emma does after her education.
