Just because Emma Watson is a super successful actress in a smash franchise doesn't mean that she doesn't want a normal educational experience!
The Harry Potter star recently revealed that she had a minor freakout at Brown University, where she's currently a student, after a few classmates asked for her autograph!
"In the end I had a breakdown. 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?'"
She continues, however, that for the most part, people have been respectful of her celebritydom and treat her with respect:
"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. Not even when I had my birthday party - 100 people came and not one put a picture on Facebook."
That's actually quite sweet! We're happy that her friends have been able to provide her that!
Everyone deserves a normal college experience, so we're glad that she's been able to experience that - at least to a degree!
