Unable to call her family in U.K. for about three months, the actress recalls, 'I'd send text messages, but it was too hard to pick up the phone - I'd just burst into tears.'

Actress Emma Watson suffered incredible homesickness when she started studying at America's Brown University and couldn't phone home to speak to her parents for three months. The British star admits her father wanted her to study at England's renowned Cambridge University but she had a dream to study overseas. After an extensive search for the right college, she packed her bags and headed for Rhode Island's Ivy League school.

But the distance from her relatives took its tool on her emotions. She tells Parade magazine, "I didn't call home for three months. I'd send text messages, but it was too hard to pick up the phone - I'd just burst into tears. Dad told me, 'Be yourself and you'll be fine'. My mom was more like, 'Make sure you wear a warm coat'. She sent me thermals and English chocolates."

But she admits she could have done with a real "Harry Potter" wand - to help her crack her own locker code. She tells the publication, "I had serious issues with the code on my locker - remembering the numbers and how to turn it one way and then the other... I would be there for 15 minutes on the verge of tears because I couldn't open this bl**dy locker to get my mail."
