Emma Watson Making the Grade at Brown University

“I think actually I'm the worst person in [drama] class,” says Harry Potter star

Emma Watson left Hollywood for Brown University, but at her first college party, the "Harry Potter" actress felt like she'd wandered onto another film set.

“I felt like I'd walked into an American teen movie," she said in an interview with Vanity Fair. "I picked up the red cups. I was like, Wow, they really do drink from these.

“It was just awful,” she said oif her first days at the hallowed school. “I was like, I must be mad. Why am I doing this?”

She's finding her way, hanging out with some nice boys from the crew team, taking a drama class and reportedly dating a Spanish student named Rafael Cebrián, who plays in a rock band and dabbles in acting, too.

 And if you would think that Hollywood's highest-paid actress of 2009 and the star of a $5.4 billion movie franchise would have an edge in acting class, think again.

“I think actually I'm the worst person in the class,” says Watson cheerily.

With the typical freshman woes behind her, Watson has settled in and is enjoying her studies and life as an Ammerican college kid.

“I was scared before I came to Brown—that I wasn't going to be allowed to have both [a career and a normal life]. People would think that I didn't deserve to have both. [I was afraid they'd think], You're famous. You're given free handbags. Why should you deserve to be normal?”
