London, Feb 22 (ANI): Emma Watson, who has a string of acclaimed films and advertising campaigns behind her belt, has revealed that her real idea of success is being able to undertake the simple things in life.
Although the 21-year-old actress was catapulted to fame playing Hermione Granger in the 'Harry Potter' franchise, she admits it has been a "challenge" learning how to function away from the bubble of the popular series.
"Doing the 'Potters' was such a bubble and then having to figure out how to function in the real world has been a challenge," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling the Independent.
"But it's been the small successes for me. I know how to use a washing machine. I can cook. It's worth it for me not to feel disconnected from everything, feeling like I'm in touch with people who do other things than acting or being in the entertainment industry," she said.
Watson, who is in her final year studying at Oxford University in the UK after transferring from Brown in the US, credits her solid group of friends with helping her cope with normal life and showbiz events.
"I think humour has been a help. I have schoolfriends, a group of people around me, who have carried me through this whole experience and aren't fazed if I ask, 'Oh what are you doing tomorrow?' and I say, 'I'm going up to see Mario Testino in Notting Hill, he's shooting me for the new Lancome campaign'.
"I don't know - it is mad, and some days I feel a bit mad, but it's the balance that keeps me sane," she added. (ANI)
