Emma Watson opens up in the new issue of Elle Australia about dating, breaking into hotel pools and getting drunk. The actress, who’s currently in a relationship with Oxford rugby player Matthew Janney, shares, “I don’t date people who are famous.”

Watson says she also feels bad when her fame affects the non-famous people she dates, offering, “I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them.”

The star goes on to reveal that she’s had a difficult time getting mature roles because of her Harry Potter past. Watson tells the magazine, “In my downtime I don’t sex myself up much. Sometimes I have a hard time convincing directors that I can play more adult roles.”

However, the Brown University student is making moves to break out of her good girl reputation, admitting she recently broke into a hotel pool at 3 a.m. “My friends turned around and basically I was gone,” she shares, adding, “The next thing they saw was me 7 feet up in the air, scaling the fence. I shouldn’t be able to get away with what I’m getting away with.”

Watson also says she’s “throwing a huge party and getting very drunk” when she graduates from Brown in the spring.
