Watson 'jealous' of other actresses

Emma Watson has admitted she is envious of actresses who have found fame as "complete human beings".

The British actress grew up on screen after being cast as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films at the age of nine, and hinted to America's Elle magazine that coming of age in the spotlight had its drawbacks.

"There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being. And I'm so jealous!" she said.

Emma - who appears on the cover of the mag clad in a denim shirt - revealed it has always been important to her that she experiences life for herself, not just as her film characters.

The 23-year-old explained: "I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me.

"I don't know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn't really careful, that could be me: that my first kiss could be in somebody else's clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else."

Emma can next be seen on the big screen in Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic Noah.
