Emma Watson prefers to watch her earlier performances in 'Harry Potter' movies because she doesn't recognise herself
Emma Watson used to look like a "chipmunk".
The 'Harry Potter' actress - who has been playing Hermione Granger since she was 10 - prefers watching the first instalments in the franchise because she looks so different.
She said: "Really, I find it easier to watch the earlier films, which might surprise you, because I had the whole bushy hair, chipmunk face, big cheek thing going on, which wasn't a great look for me. Actually, I find that easier to watch because I can completely disconnect myself. It felt like such a long time ago. I really don't identify myself with that girl.
"However, the ones from one or two years ago - I find them much, much harder to watch."
Emma - who has starred in six 'Harry Potter' movies and is currently shooting the final two - also revealed she is looking forward to concentrating on her studies and being a 'normal' teenager.
The 19-year-old beauty said: "I'm going to university, but it doesn't mean that I'm giving up acting or anything dramatic. I feel like I do want to continue, definitely. I just want a normal experience for just a bit. Just a little bit of normality for a while. That would be nice."
