Emma Watson can't lead a normal life.

The 'Harry Potter' actress - who has achieved massive fame through her role as Hermione Granger in the hit wizard films - says she gets mobbed by fans everywhere she goes and has had to hide in shops to escape excitable crowds.

The 17-year-old star said: "Whenever I have tried to lead a normal kind of life it has been very embarrassing because I just get mobbed. I've ended up hiding in unexpected places like the computer department in Dixons!

"It's just an uncomfortable experience for everyone really. Sometimes I do miss the fact that I have never really been a normal teenager because I've been Hermione for such a long time."

Emma - who stars as orphan Pauline Fossil in a new adaptation of Noel Streatfeild's novel 'Ballet Shoes' - also confessed she was so "nervous" about starring in her first non-Potter role she almost turned the part down.

She said: "It was terrifying, really nerve-wracking. I was so nervous I nearly turned it down. I'm always expected to be found out that I'm not a good actress, and I thought, 'If I'm no good, now is the time to find out.' "
