Fashion and modelling
Watson has become something of a fashion devotee, saying that she sees fashion as very similar to art, which she studied in school. In September 2008, she told a blogger,
Watson and her peers were tutored for up to five hours a day;despite the focus on filming she maintained high academic standards. In June 2006, Watson took GCSE examinations in 10 subjects, achieving eight A* and two A grades; she was a target of friendly ribbing on the Harry Potter set because of her straight-A exam results.She received A grades in her 2008 A level examinations in English Literature, Geography and Art, and in her 2007 AS (advanced subsidiary) level in History of Art."I've been focusing on art a lot, and fashion's a great extension of that."
"I felt like I was learning a whole new set of rules to a new game – just like shooting a film. Mark encouraged me to become a different person or character for photograph and so they all tell difference stories. So, in the end, I combined two loves: art/fashion and acting. I enjoyed the fact that Mark treated me like he would have done any other model and pushed to get the best out of me. I learnt a lot and have found a whole new respect for the hard work models put into their work and for couture.

Hollywood actor Emma Watson is tired of the cold UK weather. She thinks coming to India is a good fix for that. “I have always been fascinated with India, and would love to come and explore the country. I have heard that Goa is a beautiful place to chill and relax, and since it’s so cold in UK, I
would love to come there, get some warmth and get myself that tan, which I’d die for,” says Watson.
“I have seen a few Bollywood movies, but I really don’t remember names. If I was offered an Indian film, I would love to act and shake my leg,”
“I’m still astonished that I have been named under that title! Being sexy is just being comfortable in your skin, and when you exude comfort and charm without trying hard to do so — that is sexy. I feel Scarlett Johansson is an epitome of being sexy,”
