Emma Watson grew up in the spotlight as Hermione Granger on ‘Harry Potter,’ but sometimes fame can get overwhelming.

In a new interview, the ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ actress opened up about her crazy life as a movie star, and why she chooses to keep some parts of her life private.

“The story of my life has been of public interest, which is why I’ve been so passionate about having a private identity,” she revealed. “When I step into a character, people have to be able to suspend their disbelief; they have to be able to divorce me from that girl. And not having everyone know every single intimate detail of my entire life is part of me trying to protect my ability to do my job well.”
