If you've ever had your photo taken on a red carpet, chances are you've lost your shot at dating Emma Watson.

Speaking with Elle Australia, the Noah actress spills the beans on just why she refuses to be romantically involved with celebrities.

"I don’t date people who are famous," she says, explaining that she doesn't like the notion of their private life becoming public. Watson adds that she also feels the need to shield her non-famous suitors -- particularly current boyfriend Oxford rugby player Matthew Janney -- from the spotlight.

"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," she tells the magazine. "I wish I could protect them."

However, fame hasn't stopped the 23-year-old from doing, well, that 20-somethings do. According to the former child star, she still like to get into mischief once in a while.

"My friends turned around and basically I was gone,” she recalls the time she broke into a hotel swimming pool. “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.” 

As for her graduation, Watson also plans on celebrating it as all college students do when they've written their last final, gushing, "I will be there and I will be throwing a huge party and getting very drunk."
