Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has played down reports she lived in fear for her life after a male stalker started talking to her at school. The 17-year-old star was alarmed when a man in his 20s - who cannot be named for legal reasons - managed to enter her English school and started talking to her about playing Hermione Granger in the wizard movies. However, Watson says it wasn't as serious as the British press had reported. She says, "That stalker stuff was exaggerated. "To be honest, my friends were more freaked out that I was. I'm used to it. My friends were quite shocked by how blase I was about it."
