Harry Potter actress, and now sophomore at Brown University, Emma Watson has said fame is taking its toll on her, as she simply can’t lead a normal life like her Brown classmates.
In a recent interview, Emma confessed she once had a minor breakdown right in front of the class when one of her classmates asked for her autograph – she burst into uncontrollable tears, crying that she just wanted them to see her as a fellow student and not as a Hollywood star.
I had a breakdown,” Watson confessed. “Not a hissy fit, more like uncontrollable crying. Everyone looked at me horrified, like, ‘Oh my God! What’s wrong with her?’ I just said, ‘I’m really sorry, but I’m here to study and I just want to be a student. Would it be okay if I don’t sign, because you’ll be seeing me around all the time anyway?’”
Despite such unpleasant moments, Watson is generally happy with the way people on campus treat her.
One morning I was walking down the corridor from the bathroom in just a towel and I thought I must be mad, anyone could take a picture up my towel and put it on Twitter. But no-one did,” Emma gushed. “Not even when I had my birthday party – 100 people came and not one put a picture on Facebook.”
Maybe it’s just because fewer and fewer people care about Emma Watson, now she’s trying her best to keep out of the spotlight and away from Hollywood glam life?
