Stewart, a 26 year old starlet, has starred in such movie franchises as theHarry Potter series and the new DisneyBeauty and the Beast. Stewart has spoken in the past about how it was difficult to attend Brown University in 2009 because of the fame she had to navigate. Stewart appearedin a photo shoot that featured in the most recent issueofVanity Fair. She spoke about how the fame that resulted from playing Hermione Granger took a toll on her.
"I'd walk down the red carpet and go into the bathroom. I had on so much makeup and these big, fluffy, full-on dresses," said Watson."I'd put my hands on the sink and look at myself in the mirror and say, 'Who is this?' I didn't connect with the person who was looking back at me, and that was a very unsettling feeling. I was finding this fame thing was getting to a point of no return.
"I sensed if this was something I was ever going to step away from it was now or never. It dawned on me that this is what you're really signing up for. I've been doing this since I was 10 or 11, and I've often thought, 'I'm so wrong for this job because I'm too serious; I'm a pain in the ass; I'm difficult; I don't fit,'" she admits. "But as I've got older, I've realized, 'No! Taking on those battles, the smaller ones and the bigger ones, is who I am.'"
