Emma Watson is Taking a Year Off From Acting

You know what’s nice about Emma Watson starring in eight Harry Potter movies? Now she can do whatever she wants! The actress has two films in post production and has appeared in smaller pictures. But just like her magic roots, she’s ready to disappear off screen for a little bit. Emma tells Paper Magazine, “I’m taking a year from acting to focus on two things. My own personal development is one.” And she revealed she’s going to spend a lot of time researching gender studies and feminism. To focus on herself, Emma will read a book per week and also read a book per month for her feminist book club. The public will always want some Watson, but they’ll be happy she’s able to make her own path.
