NEW YORK (PIX11) – A well-known adult actress mistaken for a child, and it’s not the first time it’s happened.

That’s what happened over the holidays to “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson.

Known for starting her career when she was just a kid, Watson is now 22-years-old.

But while flying in December, customs agents at JFK airport stopped her, asking where her guardian was.

She took to Twitter to voice her embarrassment.

She said, “The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened.”
