If Prince William and wife Kate weren’t enough, Peruvian photographer Mario Testino recently photographed "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson for Vogue’s July 2011 issue, Andina reports.

The 21-year-old actress teamed up once again with Testino for a special photo shoot that reveals a glamorous Emma wearing a bold red lipstick and sexy slicked hairstyle.

Inside the magazine, Watson talks about her struggle to mix education and work, her fashion projects, but also about her love for painting, her romantic side and finding the right man.

She was only 9 years old when she was taken to audition for producer David Heyman. In just a few minutes her life changed completely and she became world-famous for the role of Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" series.

Now Emma Watson is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. The 21-year-old actress strikes a glamorous pose for Vogue magazine July 2011, in the U.S. edition, shot by renowned photographer Mario Testino. In the cover story, Emma opens up and talks about her education, career and her struggle to balance the two, about her "Harry Potter" co-star Daniel Radcliffe, but also about her fashion collaborations and her romantic character.

"I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love — and it being more important and special than anything and everything else," Watson told Vogue.

And when she meets the perfect man, she wants to keep their relationship away from the public eye. Well, at least she hopes so. "I would love to not date someone in the same industry as me. Otherwise it becomes what it means to everyone else," she says.

Until now, her life has been constantly in the spotlight. "I have had no control over my life. I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it," she confesses.

The young actress has struggled to combine education and career. "I have felt for the last ten years I have had this battle; I’ve been fighting so hard to have an education. It’s been this uphill struggle. I was Warner Bros.’ pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult. I just realized at one point that I can’t fight everything. I have to move in the direction of it — and go with it," Watson said.
