The `Help` actress - who has previously dated Kieran Culkin and was recently linked to her `The Amazing Spider-Man` co-star Andrew Garfield - tries not to get "overwhelmed" by her new-found success and likes to keep her feet on the ground as she knows it is unlikely it will last forever.
She said: "I`m very aware that it`s a moment. If I ever get overwhelmed by everything that`s happening to me, I think, `Get over it sweetheart. It will be gone one day.`
"There`s going to be another 22-year-old redhead on my heels. It`s inevitable and there`s nothing I can do about it, so I try to live in the moment."
However that does not mean she does not think about her future, and Emma admits it is unlikely she will ever fall off the rails like her contemporary Lindsay Lohan.
She told Scotland`s Daily Record newspaper: "I have parents who would never allow me to lose my mind like that. They just would not let that happen and I know they`re always going to be there for me. I`d be a mess without that."
