Los Angeles, Jan 4 (IANS) Actress Emma Watson says growing up in showbiz is a difficult experience.

The 22-year-old gained worldwide success after playing Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" film series.

"It just intensifies the whole thing. I think going through adolescence in the spotlight probably wasn't the easiest, but when I feel insecure, I just focus on the work, on what I'm doing," quoted Watson as saying.

"I try not to get too caught up in it...Because a lot of photographs are taken, you're constantly evaluating your appearance, which most people don't really have to do. It can be tough. It's just part of the job. I've never really known anything else. It all happened when I was so young," she added.
