Harry Potter beauty Emma Watson has revealed that she could turn her back on acting.

Watson - who plays Hermione Granger in the wizard movies – is a favorite with millions of teenage boys around the world.

The 19-year-old actress made her revelation in Teen Vogue admitting: “There’s not a burning passion in me that I have to act and I don’t care what I do. Until something comes along that I feel as strongly about as I did Hermione – like, I felt that it was life or death – I don’t want to act again.”

With Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince hitting the big screen next month, Watson is gearing-up for a publicity push around the world.

The actress – who was born in Paris, France but raised in England – has made around $15 million through the Potter series.

And after the latest promotional push she has enrolled in a UK college – but the star doesn’t want to reveal what and where she will be studying.

“I probably sound like a paranoid nut, but I’m doing this because I want to be normal. I really want anonymity,” she said.

In the Teen Vogue spread, she sports a full range of designer outfits but she confesses in real-life she hates looking perfect.

“There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect – you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, who you are.”
