London: Actress Emma Watson says her priority will always be her loved ones, even if that means making career sacrifices.
"Friends and family come first and work comes second, that`s just how I live my life. I try to step away from the entertainment industry when I go and study, that gives me more time," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Watson as saying.
"I did my third year in Oxford, so that I could be around my family. Ultimately they`re the priority. I don`t put anything above them," she said.
The 22-year-old says her schoolwork helps her retain "perspective" about her career and appreciate that being an actress was a "strange" thing.
"I think having time to step away and study really, really helps. It helps to give me perspective on things, to be around people who are living their lives in different ways, who have different aspirations."
"It is a strange thing that I do and it can feel quite unnerving. It`s good to remember that it`s a bit mad," Watson said.
