Emma Watson: I may do a memoir

Emma Watson has filled so many notebooks with her experiences, it could one day be enough for an autobiography.

The 23-year-old Brit found fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise and has since gone on to star in flicks such as The Bling Ring and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

She's juggled a degree in English literature alongside her career and also makes time to write down everything she's experienced.

"I love to paint and write in my diary," she opened up to German magazine TV Movie.

"I've already filled several notebooks. One day they could be turned into a proper book... But until then, they're hidden in a safe place."

Emma is currently promoting her latest film Noah, a new take on the biblical tale.

She might look gorgeous on the red carpet, but it doesn't come naturally to the star.

"I don't like attention. Naturally, I tend to hold back a bit," she revealed. "I feel incredibly unsure of myself on the red carpet, because you're the centre of attention. I'm not playing anyone else on the red carpet, I'm just being myself. And I'm quite shy."

In Noah, Emma finds herself playing the wife of the arc-builder's eldest son and has to give birth on screen. Taking on the role means that she has give more thought to the idea of having children.

"It's the first time I've tackled motherhood in general!" she marvelled to

"It was crazy. I had to do a lot of research and it was pretty intimidating to have to do that on camera. I have a whole new respect for women and giving birth and motherhood. I really do."
