Emma Watson Is Taking a Year Off from Acting for Activisim

Emma Watson is opening up about her decision to take off a year from acting in order to pursue her efforts with activism and achieve self-growth.

The 25-year-old actress talked with her “girl crush” bell hooks for Paper Magazine to discuss her plans.

“I’m taking a year away from acting to focus on two things, really. My own personal development is one,” Emma said. “I know that you read a book a day. My own personal task is to read a book a week, and also to read a book a month as part of my book club. I’m doing a huge amount of reading and study just on my own. I almost thought about going and doing a year of gender studies, then I realized that I was learning so much by being on the ground and just speaking with people and doing my reading. That I was learning so much on my own. I actually wanted to keep on the path that I’m on. I’m reading a lot this year, and I want to do a lot of listening.”
