Emma Watson needs to have "more fun."

The 20-year-old 'Harry Potter' actress - who has been studying for an English Literature degree at Brown University In America since September 2009 - admitted she often wishes she could take time out from working and studying.

She said: "I need to have more fun, like anyone my age! I'm always working, I'm addicted to work. My head needs to rest.

"I don't have an ordinary day because I'm trapped between two different lives. One day I'm filming, the next I'm off to college, the next day I'm home, then I'm designing clothes. There are no typical days for me."

The British star also admitted she regrets taking life so seriously and urged her young fans to stay true to themselves.

She told Mexico's Seventeen magazine: "I think you should be yourself because otherwise, you'll be on the wrong path and the results are not gonna be pretty. Be yourself, be honest. Don't take it too seriously, that's been one of my biggest mistakes. You're young, just have fun!"

However, the actress revealed she is happy she decided to combine studying with her acting career as she wanted to experience a more ordinary life.

She said: "Education is very important to me, I like to learn. I wanted to have a normal experience and a life outside of the entertainment industry."
