Despite her influential pixie and daring red carpet acumen, Emma Watson doesn’t consider herself glamorous.

“My problem is that I am a little bit boring,” she admits to French
. “I don’t wear designer bags or big sunglasses.”

And regardless of access to designer duds, the Harry Potter star’s downtime is underscored by a more casual approach to fashion: “When I don’t have to play Emma Watson in public, I’d rather not put myself out there,” she explains. “I have to be more careful with my look in my everyday life.”

But what about those ubiquitous Lancôme beauty ads? “Someone asked me why I accepted this job, as I wanted to stand in the shadows,” she says. “Actually, I gave up the idea that I could [ever] become anonymous again!”
