Anyone who wasn't lucky enough to borrow an older relative's ID when venturing to a nightclub underage will know that it took A LOT of in-detail rehearsing, planning and preparation...
From memorising the date of birth (and star sign) on the front of your weird identification citizenship card, to sandwiching the youngest-looking in the middle of the super-tall ones when approaching the queue in order to confuse the bouncers – trying to get into a club underage (especially when the rest of your friends had already turned 18) was hard work.
Anyway, Emma Watson has proved (yet again) that she's relatable AF, opening up about her failed attempts at fooling nightclub security.
Speaking to Interview magazine, the Harry Potter star said: "I'm the worst liar, I remember trying to get into clubs when I was just about to turn 18.
"They'd ask my age – and my friends were already in the door, it was not even a big deal – and I was like, 'I can't do it'."
She added: "It's terrible. They were like, 'You're an actress, what's wrong with you? Get it together, woman!'"
The Beauty and the Beast actress also admitted that she struggled with success and growing up in the limelight.
"It's one of the things that I struggle with, because the three of us – Dan[iel Radcliffe], Rupert [Grint], and I – were kids when we got cast in this fairy-tale series," she said.
"And what happened to us was kind of a fantasy story in itself. Outside of the movies,
"So the story of my life has been of public interest, which is why I've been so passionate about having a private identity.
"When I step into a character, people have to be able to suspend their disbelief; they have to be able to divorce me from that girl.
"And not having everyone know every single intimate detail of my entire life is part of me trying to protect my ability to do my job well."
