Emma Watson thanks her professor for not quitting acting

Premiere of A24's "The Bling Ring" - After Party Speaking for Entertainment Weekly, Emma Watson revealed that she almost quit acting but finally changed her mind thanks to one of her university professors.

When she finished working on Harry Potter movies, Emma took a break from acting in order to continue education. She was seriously thinking about career change but then she found new inspiration to get back to the film when a professor tried to convince her to quit acting.

Premiere of A24's "The Bling Ring" - ArrivalsShe said: “For a while I kind of bought into the hype of, ‘Will they ever be able to play anything else?’ It gave me a sense of paralysis and stage fright for a while. And then a professor told me that they didn’t think I should act, either. So I was really grappling with it and wasn’t feeling good about it. And then… It got so bad and people had put me in a box so much that it started p**sing me off. I suddenly wanted to prove them wrong. It gave me fuel, in a way. I’m not sure why that shift happened.”

Emma has been busy working on her blossoming movie career, with two films released in June – This Is the End and Bling Ring. She also returned to Brown to continue her studies.
