Los Angeles: Harry Potter actress Emma Watson is cutting her ties with the fashion world so she can focus entirely on her acting career.
Watson has previously served as the face of fashion firm Burberry and cosmetic company Lancome, and she recently teamed up with fair trade corporation People Tree as a creative advisor and helped in designing two clothing ranges.
Now, the 22-year-old insists she is taking a step back from the industry in a bid to concentrate on her chosen profession - acting.
"It was fun when I was younger, but I don't think it will be quite as much part of my future, honestly. Now that I know acting is the thing I want to do, that's more where my passion is and my focus is," contactmusic.com quoted Watson as saying.
"I still find fashion very interesting, but it's quite full-on. I am finding more and more that I don't want to wear a dress and heavy make-up... I want to wear jeans more. It's quite intense to do it all the time," she said.
