In addition to being a successful actress, Ivy League student and the face of various beauty and fashion brands, Emma Watson somehow found time to become a certified yoga instructor.

The 23-year-old graces the February/March 2014 cover of Wonderland and revealed to the magazine that once she graduates from Brown University she'll have a lot more time on her hands to pursue other interests -- acting is just one of them.

"I feel like I have so much more to accomplish as an actress. I’d love to try theater and that’s a whole other thing. But when I finish my degree, I will have a lot more time to pursue other passions, and I want to figure out what those will be. I love having something completely unrelated to the film industry. I want to find something that will let me use my brain in another way. I like connecting people who aren’t part of that world too," she told Wonderland. "I love painting. So maybe I hone in on that and do more art classes? Or maybe something different."

When the interviewer chimed in to say Watson was great at yoga, the actress agreed. "Then, there you go. I can be a full-time actress and a personal part-time yoga teacher?" she said.

According to Elle Australia, the "Noah" star is actually a certified yoga teacher, and her hectic schedule and jet-setting life is the very reason she decided to take up yoga. "I was like ‘I need to find a way to always feel safe and at home within myself. Because I can never rely on a physical place," she said.
