Emma Watson Vows to Avoid Child-Star Stereotype

She may have shot to stardom at the tender age of 11, but unlike many former child actors, you won’t see Emma Watson on a downward spiral! The British actress has vowed not to go off the rails after seeing how fame has badly affected a number of former child stars.

Emma shot to fame after being cast as Hermione Granger in the hit movie franchise Harry Potter, alongside co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. She has been able to stay in the limelight without so much as a scandal – and has even been able to attend college in the midst of it all!

Emma told Britain’s Elle magazine, “Sometimes I feel as though everyone’s waiting with baited breath for the three of us from Harry Potter to do something that will perpetuate the child-star stereotype.”

“I don’t know if I’m the least likely person to go off the rails, but I don’t see any need to. It’s not on my agenda. There are too many other things I want to do.”

Good to know Emma’s not planning to pull a Lindsay Lohan!

Do you think Emma Watson will be able to tread the waters of Hollywood and remain scandal-free? Or do you think she will eventually have a scandal just like many child stars?
