Humble as ever, Emma Watson is featured in the latest issue of Teen Vogue.

And The Bling Ring star tells the magazine that she had no idea the sort of impact she had on popular culture in America until she enrolled at Brown in 2009.

“It sounds stupid, or completely unbelievable, but that was when I really realized that I was famous,” Watson says of coming to live in the States. “There are still days when I deal with [fame] horribly and there are days when I deal with it really well.”

Among other topics touched on by the beloved star:

The affect of Harry Potter: “Harry Potter was so massive, I don’t know if [my other projects] would even touch it, honestly, even make a dent.”

Walking the red carpet: “Every now and again, I feel a bit wobbly before hitting a red carpet. So it’s always nice to bring friends, especially because I love to see their reactions. It’s not normal to get out of a car and have, like, 80 people screaming at you, and so when they say, ‘This is crazy,’ it makes me feel slightly more sane.”

Her future: “I wish so badly that I could have a plan. I’m someone who likes to be organized and know what she’s doing, and this industry just does not permit that in any shape or form. You never know when a movie is going to start, if it’s going to get financing, where it’s going to be.”
