Emma Watson says she's a normal university student

Thursday May 6, 2010

Harry Potter star Emma Watson frequently rubs shoulders with the Hollywood A-list at events like this week's Costume Institute Gala, but in a new interview, the Brown University undergraduate says she's just like her peers.

The young actress admits that at first she was skeptical about her new role as a student.

"I was scared before I came to Brown—that I wasn't going to be allowed to have both," says Emma, referring to her career as an actress and her life as a normal student. 

"[I was afraid they'd think], 'You're famous. You're given free handbags. Why should you deserve to be normal?'”

But Emma, who was the highest paid actress in 2009, tells US magazine Vanity Fair that she doesn't stand out, not even in her drama class.

"I think actually I'm the worst person in the class," she reveals.
