Security officials at JFK Airport in New York City stopped Emma Watson on her way back to school at Brown University over the holidays, after mistaking the 22-year-old actress for a child.
Over Twitter, Watson blamed her backpack.

The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened .— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) December 22, 2012
An insider explained, "Emma was mortified. Not only did they not recognize her, they thought she was a child. It was very embarrassing but she managed to awkwardly laugh it off."
