Although Harry Potter has helped Emma Watson earn megabucks, the beauty still wants to complete her education before allowing her acting career to flourish.
The 18-year-old actress, who plays the role of Hermione Granger, passed her A-levels with A-grades, and says that learning keeps her motivated.
She is currently mulling over an offer to study English literature at Cambridge.
Watson is adamant that acting must play second string to learning.
“Let’s be honest, I have enough money never to have to work again but I would never want that. Learning keeps me motivated,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling.
“I actually think going to university will make me a better actress.
"Look at Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep – they all educated themselves. It’s really important. They’re both lawyers and they have no interest in being part of this industry,” she added.
