Even though Emma Watson, 21, has been in the public eye since she was nine years old, she still hasn't gotten completely used to superstardom.

"I was in denial," she said about her short-lived matriculation at Brown University after she wrapped filming of the Harry Potter franchise, reports the Sunday Times Style Magazine. "I wanted to pretend I wasn't as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality, but I kind of have to accept who I am, the position I'm in and what happened."

Watson took a break from the Ivy League school this spring, causing rumors to fly that she was getting bullied by peers. "It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied. It made no sense at all. Brown has been the opposite. I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook," she said.

The Brown community wasn't perfect, though. The stunningly beautiful actress actually found it hard to date there. "I say to my friends, 'Why hasn't X called me? Why doesn't anyone ever pursue me?' They're like, 'Probably because they're intimidated.' It must be the fame wall," she added.
