Admittedly, Emma Watson is a rockstar. The 25-year-old actor is a feminist, activist and a fashionista. That trumps any average 25-year-old actor's life, which is mostly characterised by re-runs of TV shows and a struggle to strike a work-life balance.
On the face of it, it seems like Emma manages to pull off a hectic work schedule and devote herself to maintaining her private life. However, is the Harry Potter star's almost super human skills - not to mention fame - intimidating men?
A few years ago, she certainly believed so.
In an interview with Seventeen Magazine, the actress said that men are intimidated by her success and are not willing to pursue her.
"It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating," NY Daily News (Via Seventeen Magazine) quoted her as saying.
Maybe so. But Emma's fame and success in Hollywood seems to have gotten the better of her love life. According to reports, the actress' heartbreaks have been a result of endless promotional tours, films and travel.
The actress spoke with candour in a recent interview to Vogue about her relationship with her ex, Matt Janney. She described the break up as "horrendous" that took place because of Emma's work schedule. Earlier, the star split from her long time boyfriend Will Adamowicz because of her schedule.
Nonetheless, Emma remarked that her past relationships have been gratifying. "The boyfriend or partners I've had have generally made me feel really cherished. They've built me up. I certainly haven't found that with doing all that I do or being all that I am, that I've struggled in my love life," Hollywood Life (Via Vogue UK) quoted her as saying.
Even as the young actor copes with the ups and downs of romance, relationships and boyfriends, her solace, she said, lies in being the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN. It seems the actress' escape from the failures of her love life ultimately lie in her professional life.
"Part of me relaxed after I took on that position, it gave me a sense of belonging and purpose," Emma told People Magazine.
