Actress Emma Watson has revealed that the fame brought on by her acting success makes her feel like an “imposter”.

The UN Women Goodwill Ambassador graces the cover of next month’s Vogue and said she “wrestles” with success.

“When I was younger, I just did it. I just acted. It was just there,” she told the publication.

The actress revealed that her role within the UN has given her a sense of purpose which she lacked before. She revealed that the night before her speech at the UN’s New York headquarters she was ‘terrified’.

“I was in my hotel room, thinking, I can’t do this. I was just terrified. And then I skyped a friend who said, ‘Go through it again and ask yourself, if you were hit by a bus tomorrow, would you be comfortable with every single line?'"

“I understood what I’m here to do and knew where to channel all this energy that has been coming at me. I now feel this sense of peace. People say that I’m different since I did it.”

Watson recently announced that her childhood dreams had come true after she landed the role of Belle in the upcoming Disney remake of Beauty and the Beast.

The actress is also getting set to star alongside Tom Hanks in The Circle.

Watson’s full interview will feature in the latest issue of Vogue, which is out on Thursday.
