Look out - Emma Watson has struck fashion mag gold once again! The Harry Potter actress has landed the August cover of Harper's Bazaar UK with a cracking photo shoot lensed by Alexi Lubomirski. At just 21 years old, Em commands this editorial wearing incredible pieces from the upcoming autumn/winter collections of designers including Yves Saint Laurent and Emilio Pucci. She works two contrasting looks from a dark-haired sexy vixen to a soft girlie girl who enjoys wandering wistfully through a field of flowers.

Inside the mag, she discusses decision to leave Brown University to focus on her film and fashion career, Watson says: "Leaving Brown had nothing to do with bullying, as the media have been suggesting recently. I have never been bullied in my life. Like a lot of other students at Brown, I might spend my third year abroad."

As for her decision to go with a non-UK university, she adds: "I felt suddenly very claustrophobic...I thought, 'I can't stay here, I won't be able to concentrate, I won't be left alone."'

With her acting classes, she admits that she struggled to bring out her inner bad side: "My acting tutor said the hardest thing for me was to get angry. I almost broke down in tears when they tried to get me to be angry. I said, 'I can't do it, I just can't do it.'"

"I keep all of that really bottled up somewhere and I feel unleashing it would be the scariest thing - and to let myself be powerful, sexy, all those things, it's scary for me. [Even playing the bad girl in this shoot] felt a bit uncomfortable and awkward, it didn't come naturally at all."

In the interview, Emma also speaks openly about her appearance, "I feel if I have to work out four hours a day, and count the calories of everything I put in my mouth, and have Botox at 22, and obsess about how I look the whole time, I will go mad, I will absolutely lose it.."

The world premiere of her new film Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part II will take place in London's Trafalgar Square next Thursday. The August issue of Harper's Bazaar UK is on sale Thursday, 7th July.
