Workaholic Harry Potter star Emma Watson is a girl who just wants to have fun, but she finds it hard to switch off from her studies, her films and her designing.
Despite her millions in the bank from a decade of playing brainy Hermione Granger in the phenomenally successful film franchise, the Brit enrolled in prestigious U.S. university Brown last year.

And between filming the final installments of the Potter series, designing her own eco-friendly fashion range and college work, Watson admits the fun aspect of life has suffered.

She tells Seventeen magazine, “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.”

She only wishes she could practice what she preaches: “(You have to) Be yourself, be honest. Don’t take it too seriously. That’s been one of my biggest mistakes: ‘You’re young, just have fun!'”
