Emma Watson is on the cover New York Times' T magazine this week as part of their "Women's Fashion Fall 2012" issue looking as gorgeous (and womanly!) as ever. Which is especially comforting to see given we watched the girl grow up on screen as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series. 

The 22-year-old actress is in the magazine to promote her upcoming coming-of-age film, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, due out in September. But that's not the only project she has coming up.

In the piece, the actress also discussed the wave of new roles she's shocked she's getting the chance to do. 

“I guess weirdly in my head I knew what I wanted, I didn’t know how it would or if it would ever happen. But before Bling Ring, I said I’d really wanted to meet Sofia Coppola and—this is before I knew that she had a film in mind—ended up meeting her. And Darren [Aronofsky] was someone who actually I met a good year ago," Watson says. "And then I’m doing a film with Guillermo [del Toro] next summer, and I went to him and said Warner Brothers have given me the script for Beauty and the Beast, but the only way I’d really want to do it is if you did it. And then miraculously he said, ‘Oh, funnily enough Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale, I can’t let anyone else do this, I’ll start putting a team together.’”

Considering how prolific she'll be over the next two years, expect the Watson fan frenzy to become bigger and crazier than it's ever been.
