Emma Watson, Hollywood poster-lady for grace and self-assurance, told Porter magazine in a recent interview that when she was younger, "I was terrified by the level of interest in me" and that, "As a young person that feeling of not being comfortable in my own skin was exacerbated by the microscope I was under."

It's understandable considering that she was only nine when she auditioned for the first Harry Potter film. Basically, if you thought it was difficult becoming a teenager in front of your classmates, imagine doing it at red carpet events and on a giant movie screen in front of millions of people. (Although, to be fair, Watson did have magic to distract everyone, unlike Muggle teens.)
