    After losing out on a role in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, now it seems Emma’s seriously considering stepping our of the spotlight, telling friends: ‘I really think I need to recharge my batteries.

    ‘I think I need to find some real belief in myself away from acting,’ she reportedly said.

    ‘I know that I can play Hermione but I don’t know… I really think I need to recharge my batteries and go and be me for a bit.’

    Just last week, the blonde beauty told fans she was preparing for her return to her US university.

    ‘Starting to get ready to go back to Brown, the summer has flown,’ she told followers on Facebook last week.

    But lucky Em still managed to find time for one last relaxing getaway, jetting off for some sunshine with her family.

    ‘Just back from an amazing holiday with my family,’ she wrote yesterday. ‘So nice just to chill out in the sunshine… Now I’m back in London for a quick turnaround before flying to the US ready for the start of term.’
