Emma Watson Feared Being Typecast

Emma Watson on 'GQ'Emma Watson was worried about being typecast after Harry Potter.

The 22-year-old actress - who appears on the May issue of British GQ magazine as her tattooed, pole-dancer character from The Bling Ring - admits she is attracted to playing wilder roles at the moment because she never wants to be forced to play the same character:

"Really I was open-minded about doing anything, but the one thing I didn't want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I'd never get out again. I knew it would be a really comfortable thing to do, but I felt... I had to dive into something really different. This has been a really big departure for me; it's a really big character."

Emma also revealed that while she loved playing law breaker Nicki in the upcoming drama about a group of fame-obsessed teenagers that use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes in Los Angeles, which was based on real-life events, she hated the character.

"When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it's become to our society, I had to do it. Everything that I felt strongly against -- she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be," she explained.
