Emma Watson to quit Hollywood?

'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson may quit acting if she can't find any more roles she is passionate about

Emma Watson is considering giving up acting.

The 'Harry Potter' star - who plays brainbox Hermione Granger in the hit movie franchise - would be willing to axe her film career if she can't find other fulfilling roles.

She told America's Teen Vogue magazine: "I don't have a burning passion for acting.

"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."

The 19-year-old beauty also revealed she is struggling to cope with the hectic schedule of promoting new movie 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' and filming the final two instalments of the boy wizard franchise.

She said: "I don't think I've ever been this tired in my life. I literally wear my pyjama bottoms to set. I roll out of bed and put on a hoodie and some Ugg boots."

Although she is considering ending her acting career, Emma - who has gained at place at America's prestigious Yale University - recently revealed she intends to carry on acting while she studies.

She said: "Jodie Foster did it, Natalie Portman did it. I think it's entirely possible to juggle university with filming.

"I actually think going to university will make me a better actress. The experience of living like that, working to deadlines, living with other students. It's all the things I want."
