I feel inadequate, says Emma Watson

London, May 30 (ANI): Harry Potter star Emma Watson has revealed that she lives in constant fear of being labelled a "total fraud" as an actress.

Despite finding huge success as Hermione Granger and then winning acclaim for other roles, including recent film The Bling Ring, Emma insists she still feels inadequate.

The 23-year-old told the Sun that it's called the impostor syndrome and it's almost like the better she does, the more her feeling of inadequacy actually increases, because she is just going.

"Any moment, someone's going to find out I'm a total fraud, and that I don't deserve any of what I've achieved," she said.

Emma said that she can't possibly live up to what everyone thinks she is and what everyone expects from her.

She credited 'The Perks Of Being A Wallflower' director, Stephen Chbosky, for giving her the confidence to shake off the good-girl stereotype she gained by playing Hermione from the tender age of nine. (ANI)
