Emma Watson won't go back to Brown University. She'll transfer, but not because of bully rumours.

Emma Watson is smart. And famous. And everyone knows you're not allowed to be both. And when you factor in that she's also in possession of legitimate talent to back up her fame? Well, that's almost too much for a bunch of jealous teenagers to bear. Which is why, after Watson announced last month that she planned to become the anti-James Franco and take a break from school to focus on her moviemaking career, it didn't take long for rumors to surface that the party line was really just a cover story.

The supposed real reason for her departure from Brown University? The mean boys and girls who comprised the freshman class were supposedly so merciless in their taunting of the A-lister that the Harry Potter star had no choice but to leave the school. Poison ivy, indeed. But is it true? Was Emma really bullied out of Brown? Get those spells ready, because this rumor is… So false! While the rumor mill recently heated up with reports that Watson would be teased with comments like, "Three points for Gryffindor!" whenever she answered a question correctly or attempted to participate in class, the actress herself denied those reports several months ago. In an interview with Time magazine back in November, the 21-year-old fielded reader questions and one of them was about the supposed utterances thrown Emma's way. "No," she replied when asked if such bullying comments were ever thrown her way. "Actually, I'm really glad that he asked. That has never happened to me. Maybe someone said it under their breath, but I've never, ever had anyone say that when I've been in a class." Watson's rep confirmed as much to E! News, saying, "There is absolutely no truth in this rumor whatsoever."

However, it turns out there is truth to another rumor—specifically, the one about Emma leaving Brown altogether. While the actress announced last month that she would be holding off on continuing her education while she finished up some films, it turns out, she's only holding off on continuing her education at Brown, and, per her rep, will be transferring schools. But not because of bullying! "Emma has enjoyed her time at Brown tremendously and made many friends there who she keeps in constant contact with. She has now decided to change university, but not for the bullying, as that is just completely untrue. She has just decided to continue with a different course. But, for reasons of security I am not prepared to divulge which university she will be attending." That's OK, the rumor mill has no such qualms. The most recent round of rumors has Watson pondering a relocation to (where else?) New York City, with Columbia or New York University likely being her top picks.

meh, just admit it that she isn't up for ivyleagues level.

It's ok... And to Anon above, i seriously don't care if she's up to ivy league. It's not as if it was a shame... C'mon, she's not Hermione, she's just a girl who likes to learn. it doesn't mean she as brilliant as hermione.Going to university is a god thing whatever the university is. I won't go to Ivy league or to oxford or Mcgill or aything else, i'll still have my BAC as much as the other people. Doesn't mean i'll have a less nice life because of that.

I love the brown, the brown is the best in the world. blah blah blah

So she should stay in Brown even though she knows she won't be able to follow every courses because of her schedule just to please you? Jealousy is ugly.

emma should study in their country, those in brown are vindictive

Why do you say they're vindictive?

You see i've told you... I see her through...She'll change Uni,then forget Uni,then change the country and forget her words about being "patriotic",move to USA for continuing her career,and became just another particular Hollywood actress...I can tell everything what will happen in her future life...She's not any kind of special...She's still young and still learning to live,in this real world and world of fame,fashion,and show business...Not a surprise if she were like that from the beginning(of her life or career,no matter)...Just another particular starlet...O tempora,o mores...I known it from the first time i've seen her interview in journal in 2001.But i still hope she'll not forget her real self...

Wow, she's transferring schools, she's a lying, stupid hypocrite! All who criticize her, I'd love to see the grades you got in school. She got straight A's in school while filming 8 movies. I'd like to see anyone else do what she did and get the grades that she got.

in New York will have a normal life?, everything was planned. the only thing she cares about is fame. she is a hypocrite

Eden said...

She needs a course that Brown can't offer her but that NYU can. Where is the hipocrisy in it? If she really goes to Gallatin it's because their plannings are very flexible which will be easier for her to continue her career. She probably just realised that cinema won't wait for her to get her licence. If she wants to act she has to do something now. It's no big deal if her career became as important as her studies.

Some people keep saying that those who are 'defending' Emma think she's perfect. I personally think that it's those who are always complaining about her who do otherwise they wouldn't critisize everything she does. She's NOT perfect. She might lie, she might contradict herself... and then? We all do.

Serge said...

Well,the only thing she has to do is to show people her real face and realize that her fans isn't only those kids who fell in love with that tomboy Hermione.She have to understand that people seeing her through what and how she's doing.Maybe nobody knows her,but if she's so "good & kind" then why to lie,play a "bad girl",
starlet,do all what's she doing? She shouldn't lie and stop being a hypocrite.She wants to move to usa forever?Became real actress,starlet,hollywood lady n/1,second Marilyn Monroe?No problem,but no americans lying,and nobody hides nothing,they doesn't care about their "real faces" and not afraid to tell truth about themselves.Take a look at all them Hilton/Lohan/other american show business divas.You ever seen them hiding their interests?She have to do all of this because she has millions of fans and other people all around the planet who love,respect,believe,and trust her.It's inhumanely to be such "bad" person when you have quarter of Earth population who knows you,thinks good about you,loves,adores,respects,and believes you/in you.She had her rights to be like this when she was "normal",and no one known her.But not now when she has fans,followers,and lots of other people who's worrying and caring about her.It's disgraceful.
P.S.More than 2 000 000 fans on Facebook.More than 800 000 followers on Twitter.More than i guess 12 or more millions fans all over the planet.And guess half of Earth population seen her on posters,on TV,anywhere else and knows her.My gosh,she's world-famous in 21 years!!!I can't imagine 50 000 people in same place,but THOSE numbers are driving me crazy O_O...She was just a little bit less famous in a beginning of her career.We all can't and will never imagine or understand such a popularity.When i look on my friends list on FB and helplessly trying to remember all of my relatives both alive and dead,who knows/known me or not,i'm having headache!But even this number isn't bigger than i think only few hundreds,not more.But how could i believe/understand that near 12 000 000 of people knows me?O_O O_O O_O O_O And THAT'S why Emma SHOULD reveal ALL the truth about herself.(guess after a few this-like comments Eden will disable comments on the blog)))

Eden said...

If people are naive enough to believe everything a person says it's their fault. NOBODY will ever say everything about them simply because they don't know quite well who they are. She's only 21 for God's sake! We're the same age and there is no way I can describe who I really am or what I really want. It's normal at 21 to always change your mind. It's not being a hypocrit, it's being indecisive. And in what is she a bad girl? Does she hurt anyone in any way? People should really stop considering celebs as role models or examples. It's stupid.

1 - unfortunately it is an example to some.
2 - I'm also undecided. but I am not the victim ago.
3 - "celebrity as a model or example " strange words for someone who has a blog dedicated to a celebrity.

HYPOCRISY is an unconscious self-contradiction: a state of incongruence between one's professed beliefs and feelings and one's actual beliefs and feelings, or an application of a criticism to others that one does not apply to oneself.

Hypocrisy is not simply a lie, saying something which one knows to be false. Neither is it simply failing to practice those virtues that one preaches. Samuel Johnson made this point when he wrote about the misuse of the charge of "hypocrisy" in Rambler

hei serge tell us how will her love life will be. i predict she will have scandals with some men at the same time and going through divorce in the future. what do you think? just like you have said o also can see her leave uni in the future and everthingelse you said.

Anonymous said...

i'm afraid there will be some backlash from brown students. perhaps we will hear tell a story about emma watson life in brown uni after this. but i highly doubt that. brown students seem either too rich and priviledged or too smart and busy to care about her. The only thing that made her stand out there is just the fact that she's in hp movies. And lots of them probably don't read or watch hp so mostly they don't know her either.

If she changes, it's her problem, not our!! That's all, she is living her life.

Marion said...

oh my gosh!! People here are so crazy!
Just face the fact that you'll never find out how Emma Watson truly is as a person. People who truly know her do not come on this blog!
As I already said. Often you don't know if people in your surroundings are real or not. So why care about the honesty or truth of a person who for one thing is in the show biz and for another lives very far away from you?
@Eden: totally right: at that age people change their minds. Emma just got the room to change her mind all the time and do what she wants. It's not like she had much choice while filming. In that way she is a couple steps behind us.

make up your own mind and think about what kind of person you want to be. Independent from any starlet.

indecision, indesición. cruel world.

Anonymous said...

she's not very indecision regarding $$$ that for sure. i think that the reason she canceled her plan to leave harry potter in the past, higher salary in the new contract. it's always money..money.. and money. it would be not a problem if she just admit it, not concealed with her passion in 'education'. it's the second time, last time she want to leave hp for education too. money lure her back then, money lure her back now. now it's seem she just pursuing degree, not education it self.

like serge said, she's just another actress out there. let's see how she will fare in hollywood. i'm not fan of her over acting, i prefer more subtle acting. she tend to over acting it's so obvious that she's acting it look so fake.

lol @ some of these comments! Let her do her thing! It's her life for goodness sake... If you think she's fake then why bother coming here and write bad stuff about her lol! and I didn't know transferring school would make you a hypocrite hahaha!

Snowflake said...

I know she's taking a break, but it also kinda saddens me that she chose to take a break over school work to appear in fashion magazines and to shoot that lancome add.
Last year she talked how much she wanted to go to college. It shows a lack of dedication. I hope she gives it her all next year.

Eden said...

I don't know why people always say that she left Brown for fashion. She has Perks in a couple of weeks. She has to dance, to sing and to talk in an American accent. She has to rehearse for that (singing and dancing needing probably lots of time). And there is the HP promotion. Rupert and Dan can't and someone has to do it. And she knew she didn't want to follow the courses she was following in Brown anymore so why continuing? She'll be back to studies next autumn, I don't know why some people are disappointed. It's not even their business in the first place.

Emma watson is all about fame and money. Im sorry guys but I like you love Potter. Great story. Wonderful. The character of Hermione is endearing. Yes Emma watson is pretty with a good fashion sense. She does come off very sweet and down to earth. BUT it's all an act. She is a media hyped and self created celebrity that manipulates her fans and the media. She uses her looks and the character of Hermione to do it.

I know hate me, say I need a life and that "no one really knows emma" but it does not take much to figure out how and who she really is by paying a little more attention to what she says and what she does and a little less on her looks and the fact she was in the best movie franchise ever.

Sorry to be so long here, apologizes Eden and everyone else but I see straight through Emma for what she is and I have no fairytail thoughts of what i think she is. I find her daft bore that is more of brand than an actual person in public. She's like a robot programmed to act a certain way. I can't stand her. I can;t stand her like I can't stand the Paris Hilton's as well.

I really dont get why you care what i do? Is your life pointless you have to ake such comments? What is it to you? Is it because you can't stand what you read because it actually makes sense. Are you in denial? Or are you one of those blind minions that worships the ground Emma walks on. You like being lied to? You like making Gods out of mortals just because they were in a movie or is photogenic? You are the one that shuld answer those questions.

Eden said...

I don't want to begin to argue or anything because I find it very boring, but I also do wonder why making a blog and spending time for a person you can't stand. Why her? There are so many people in the Disney world who's image is way more goody-goody than Emma. (not saying you should hate them). I just don't think she did anything to deserve any hate. Not liking her, I understand. But not being able to stand her I don't understand. And coming in blogs and forums where there are pictures of her everywhere won't help you XD

Marion said...

As long as she's true to herself and her close ones I really don't think we should mind. (We will never find out the above)

My thought of Emma being an act is: If you aren't the media will eat you. You can't be a (I'll just use the word) wallflower in the show biz. They'll tear you in peaces.

@E-chee
First of all, no my life isn’t pointless. Also, whether or not I worship Emma (for the record, I don’t) has nothing to do with it. I just often see you post here and I’ve been to your blog and I just couldn’t help but notice the amount of work you’ve put into it. To think someone would put such an awful amount of time in someone who he/she(?) can’t stand seems really pointless to me. Just imagine what you could’ve done during those hours (probably days, weeks). I really don’t want to make you feel bad or anything, but it just doesn’t seem very healthy to me. So here’s my advice: stop wasting your time on Emma, go out some more, study some more, I don’t care, but please go and do something useful. Maybe you can follow Eden’s example and make a blog on someone who you do like. I think it would spare you and a lot of people from much irritation.

I don't buy this bully thing at all. It would not surpirse me if this was a plant by her people to make Emma look like a victim instead of a fame driven actress because for years this girl has done nothing but act as though she wants nothing to do with fame or money even as she attached herself to Butberry and now Lancome while boasting about her money and complainin­g every step of the way as to how hard it is to be famous.

@ echee: I think you're being a little too dratic. Emma is pretty sure not only the sweet, charming always nice Girl (you know what I mean) but I would say she is definately not 100% totally the opposite of what she portrayes in the media.
I think Emma just can't say no if a great opportunity comes her way. I think she is just figuring out what she want's at the moment in a very wide sense. figuring out her priorities.
In general I think it's a game of good or bad luck. If the media decides to be nice to you, you're fine. If they don't you're screwed.

she's living her life, she has every right to change her mind everyone does. what's the big deal about transferring uni LOL.. i think Emma fans know very well that she's not perfect those haters here are the one's who picture her as "Perfect Girl" cause they complain and criticize her for every move/decisions that don't meet their expectations of her..

No one will know if it was bullying but she sure is not into education as much as she says she is. She has never taken education serious. Why would she? She's set for life. I sucks that many people can't get a good education but emma can buy her way in and then play games with it.

ana said...

or my god my brother always wanted to go to college, but we are poor, luckily he won a scholarship. as someone can apply for a university without having the slightest idea that it will study?.
I'm an uneducated but I have a decision to help my brother for him to be someone in life.
emma watson, why you is not engaged in show business and leaves a university position to someone who really wants to study and get a college degree.
my brother is a fan of emma..... the life sucks¡

Anonymous said...

Ana, I'm sorry for your story but I don't think you should blame Emma for that. I'm entering Uni next year and it's of course expensive (not as much as in the US, but it's expensive anyway) Ans I always found nice that Emma went to uni but seriously it's possible to change minds. My sister's entering Unio next year but she's not sure which programs she want's exactly (Génie Minier ou génie géologique) and she's probably transfer if she don't like her first choice. A lot of people do that, ans a lot of people take breaks during uni. I might do this as well to travel while i'm young enough to do so.

Just saying, Emma's not a liar or a hypocrite or a bastard because she left uni. She makes her own choices as we all make ours. the only diference is that we can see all of her choices while we can't see everybody's choice at all.

Oh and Eden, I suggest you to disable de comments for a while. I went to a website who did that because there was too much harrassing and bad comments and stupidities and it worked really well. The non-sense arguing stopped and people just began to read the news only to read the news, ad not to bitch on it. :) Now the commentaries are back and everyone is commenting calmly.

I think the only reason anyone would want to silence comments is because some of those comments don't adhere to other's point of view. Sign of a communist.

It's just impossible to have a decent conversation anymore because either some people refuse to see any good in Emma or some others can't stand stand someone negatively criticizing her. I don't see the point of comments if people can't talk about anything but fat, hipocrisy, fake... It's just very annoying.

I'm a fan of emma watson and I love it, but I recognize his constant contradictions, I think she is making a mistake in leaving the brown. fame is ephemeral, we all know that NY is going to distract, and I doubt that NYU has the same quality of study of the Ivy League.
That's my opinion. going to accuse me of troll?, or ridiculous? or what?.

emma watson is free to do what she wants is her life, the problem is that in every interview she ever heard of a normal life. That really upset because it seems to be making fun of people.
she, must be defined in life, she wants the fruits of fame .. but want privacy and normalcy, that is impossible unfortunately.

i think emma is lacking of dedication in her character. May be that's why we find so many contradictions in what she said and what she did(some people call it hypocrisy) and she's an actor. They're lying everyotherday. As soon as hp end she want to strip assosiation from hp (cutting hair to get rid of hermione image, don't wanna hang out with hp casts, if that dm article was true, somehow judging from her character i believe it's true, she goes as far as become mad if hp references being mentioned in her present) she like the idea of designing for people tree then complaining again about the hardworking, sure she must have been thingking that her job was only drawing, how naive, ..or stupid from her part. Anyway this girl just want to have fun, like always. I can't believe she's twenty one, i thought she's still twelve judging from her whinning way. But as long as she's not pulling lohan, it's her life anyway. Just remember to take everything she say with a grain of salt, after all she will just contradict it in the end...again.
