Emma Watson is shy at parties. The English model, who rose to her fame while playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series says she is ”socially awkward”. The twenty three year old says she does struggle to fit into a big crowd. The reason is because she just feels it hard to have a conversation with anyone and her escape is to the bathroom if she even attends any parties. She said:
”I feel like I’ve been given a lot of credit where it isn’t due that I don’t like to party.
”The truth is that I’m genuinely a shy, socially awkward, introverted person. At a big party, I’m like Bambi in the headlights. It’s too much stimulation for me, which is why I end up going to the bathroom! I need time outs!
”I get anxious. I’m terrible at small talk and I have a ridiculously short attention span.”
The star has taught herself to relax and appreciate she can’t do everything. Speaking to the new edition of Wonderland magazine – which she has guest edited – she said:
”Now I really know how to take care of myself, how to be alone, how to deal with stress.
”If I hadn’t been through that time, I wouldn’t have got there. I never knew I had limits. You make good friends and you make bad friends, and you have to figure it all out.
”You realize you can’t do everything. I really did think I could do it all – commute back to the UK for ‘Potter’ filming and press, then go to Brown for finals, and keep up with my friends and family. You can’t do it, by the way. You do have to take breaks.
”It’s how I became interested in meditation and yoga. I developed bedtime rituals.”
