As soon as she can, Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez wants to call it quits to television series acting and concentrate on movies and college. While she is looking forward to filming WOWP again in August, the Disney star has her sights set on the future and wants to be like actresses who go to college and stay in the industry.
“I’m going to try to pull a Natalie Portman,” Gomez says, keeping her fingers crossed that she’ll get into and graduate from her “dream” school, Northwestern University.
“Natalie went to Harvard while shooting ‘Star Wars,’ ” she says, making it clear she’d like to move on to movies eventually.
“I don’t know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her – that seems like a bunch of stress right there.”
For now she is focusing on her work and not on the romantic rumours surrounding her. The 16 year old Gomez is thinking of studying drama and journalism in college.

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.
