Emma Watson found post-Potter life hard

The actress has found it difficult to adapt to the real world since leaving the 'bubble' of Harry Potter.

Emma Watson first played Hermione Granger in the blockbuster film franchise at the tender age of nine, and says it's been hard to adapt to everyday life since the series' conclusion last year.

'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 21-year-old told The Independent.

'But it's been the small successes for me: I know how to use a washing machine, I can cook,' she explained.

'It's worth it to 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.
Emma has recently been unveiled as the star of a new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
