Emma Watson is a qualified yoga instructor.

The 23-year-old actress is close to completing her degree in English Literature and is looking forward to using her free time to pursue some hobbies away from acting.

She said: "When I finish my degree, I will have a lot more time to pursue other passions, and I want to figure out what those will be.

"I love having something completely unrelated to the film industry. I want to find something that will let me use my brain in another way. I like connecting people who aren't part of that industry.

"I love painting. So maybe I hone in on that and do more art classes? Or maybe something different. I'm a board two certified qualified yoga instructor."

Emma also has some professional ambitions she hopes to fulfill.

She said: "I feel like I have so much more to accomplish as an actress. I'd love to try theater, and that's a whole other thing, and I love to sing."

And the brunette beauty is confident her studies will help her in her career.

She told Wonderland magazine: "I've read just about every important classic in English history, which has been extremely handy.

"It's helped me think in an analytical way. It's helped me see the world from new perspectives. Diving into these stories and characters has given richness in my own life.

"And now, when I read scripts or look at stories, I have these references for a larger understanding of humanity, I'm sure it will make my job as an actress more interesting."
