Emma Watson has come to the conclusion that no amount of fame, money or level of education can make growing pangs any easier to handle. “I have had no control over my life,” the costar of the “Harry Potter” franchise says. “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.”
With a July 15 release date ushering in the end of the “Harry Potter” series, which made Watson financially set for life and universally recognizable, the actress is learning to live life as an adult and a super star on her own. Her passion for fashion and design are currently keeping her busy, and knowing her Potter costar Daniel Radcliffe is available to offer support and guidance has helped her keep from feeling overwhelmed by it all.
“When one or the other of us was having a tricky moment in our lives, it was often that we would confide in each other,” Radcliffe says. “We would also help each other with relationship advice.”
Watson chose to take a leave from Brown University after receiving numerous acting and modeling offers now that she has wrapped up her commitment to the Potter films. First up is a starring role in the film adaptation of the novel “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”
