London: `Harry Potter` star Emma Watson is experiencing the side-effects of fame. The young actress says that she has lost out on the carefree life that most people her age lead, because of her busy film career.
Watson who is studying literature at Brown University, said that she is happy combining college with her acting commitments, Contactmusic reported.
"I need to have more fun, like anyone my age. I`m always working, I`m addicted to work. My head needs to rest. I don`t have an ordinary day because I`m trapped between two different lives. One day I`m filming, the next I`m off to college, the next day I`m home, then I`m designing clothes. There are no typical days for me," said Watson.
However, the 20-year-old has urged her young fans to stay true to themselves and live life to the fullest.
"I think you should be yourself because otherwise, you`ll be on the wrong path and the results are not gonna be pretty. Be yourself, be honest. Don`t take it too seriously, that`s
been one of my biggest mistakes. You`re young, just have fun," said the British actress.
Watson who is one of the richest women in the UK, rose to international fame at the age of 11, when she was chosen to play young witch Hermoine Granger in the `Harry Potter`
