Emma Watson Reveals Why 2019 Has Been 'Tough'

Actor Emma Watson has admitted to British Vogue that it's been a "tough" year. In an interview with Vogue's first transgender columnist, Paris Lees, the Harry Potter star revealed that she's going through what many of us go through prior to turning 30, and worrying that her life is nothing like what she imagined it would look like at this age.

"I was like, 'Why does everyone make such a big fuss about turning 30? This is not a big deal...'" she shared. "Cut to 29, and I'm like, 'Oh my God, I feel so stressed and anxious. And I realize it's because there is suddenly this bloody influx of subliminal messaging around. If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you're not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you're still figuring things out... There's just this incredible amount of anxiety."

Watson admits growing up in the spotlight hasn't been easy

Speaking about her personal like, Watson confessed that is she currently single and at peace with it. "I never believed the whole 'I'm happy single' spiel...I was like, 'This is totally [a] spiel.' It took me a long time, but I'm very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered."

Though incredibly grateful for what life has thrown at her, Watson also revealed that she has been in therapy to help deal with living her life in spotlight. Cast as Hermione Granger at age 9, she often thinks, "Why me? Somebody else would have enjoyed and wanted this aspect more than I did," admitting, "I've wrestled a lot with the guilt around that, of being like I should be enjoying this more, I should be more excited, and I'm actually really struggling."
