She said, “Friends and family come first and work comes second, that’s just how I live my life. I try to step away from the entertainment industry when I go and study – that gives me more time. I did my third year in Oxford, so that I could be around my family. Ultimately they’re the priority. I don’t put anything above them.”
Watson also admits acting is “a strange thing” and it’s nice to observe other people’s lifestyles.
“I think having time to step away and study really, really helps. It helps to give me perspective on things, to be around people who are living their lives in different ways, who have different aspirations.”
She adds, “It is a strange thing that I do and it can feel quite unnerving. It’s good to remember that it’s a bit mad.”
