She probably wants to relax and enjoy the beach do bad, yet she still takes photos with her fans. She's so sweet.

Jason said...

She was letting people take pics but a day later she refused even tho she was talking with that person. I wonder why she refused.

Anonymous said...

@Jason it's not the first Time she is refusing Pictures. I'm sure she just want's her Peace when she is not working and have some of a normal Life, but from Time to Time she is doing a few Pictures. That's what I think

But maybe she is just not that open like Rupert with Fans out of working Time or whatever. Could be any Reason tbh

Jason what do you mean she refused "even though she was talking for that person?"

Jason said...

@anonymous - yeah that's true it could be any reason. That's why i was asking lol.

Anonymous said...

I think it depends on the situation. If she's somewhere she thinks she may be mobbed or where if she poses for one lots of people will ask then she won't do it. If not many people are bothering her then she'll pose. I'd imagine it also depends on where she is and how you ask for a photo.

Chris said...

@Anonymous 11:01 Agree, for all we know that fan asked her for the photograph right after she got out of the bathroom lol.

Logan Lerman arrived earlier in the week and now Emma joins the 'Noah' crew in Iceland. :)

According to Emma's Tweet she is in Iceland now.

it's weird you know when people keep on saying that she always refused to take picture. For what i've seen, there have been 3 pictures of her with her fans here in this past few days. and who knows there is more out there.

Anna said...

I once saw on You Tube a short film that Emma was really bugged by some people. She was really annoyed (you could tell by her hand gestures) and still, at the end, she posed with them for a photo.
I would not have done it.
She must be really patient. Or she knows they will only go away after the photo, so she wins.

The Daily Mail and Entertainmentwise is reporting that Emma is not going back to University, and judging by the tone of the article, I don't think she's returning for some time, or ever returning. I know that it's the Daily Mail, and they make up 90% of the stuff they write, but Emma has 3 movies coming out, and she has to promote 2 when Brown starts. I think this might actually be true.

The article says that she realizes that she has to choose a new path in life. If that path is a career in movies, then I'm all for it. Getting A-Levels in High School and having the ambition to even start college when you absolutely have no need to is admirable. It's time to get real. She needs to think about the rest of her life first.

Agreed. There are some people who have given Emma a lot of flak for being a "hypocrite" and not concentrating on her studies like she said she would do when she was 19. But priorities change between 19 and 22, and no one should be held to what they said they wanted to do three years ago. Maybe Emma thought she could essentially take four years off to do college, but now has realized she only has a small window of opportunity to capitalize on her fame, and now that she seems determined to be an actress (as opposed to when she was 19 and unsure) she has had to change priorities, But like anon above, that she even chose to go to an ivy league school for 2-3 years is admirable in her situation.

Anonymous said...

Did you read the article? There was a quote from Emma's spokesperson saying she is taking a term out then going back to Brown in January. All the rest is speculation and sensationalism on the part of the Mail.

Chris said...

Anonymous @5:56 is right, the full article says she's just taking another semester off and IF this is true it's really the smart move. Classes start September 5th and the last day to add classes is October 2nd, right thru her Perks promotion. She would miss the first month and would have to absolutely devote the next 3 months non-stop just to catch up, that's a lot to ask of anyone. The article also said she's roughly a year or less away from her degree (can't quite remember the exact wording) too so the odds of her absolutely quitting school for good are almost zero when you are that close. Now, this is the Daily Mail who started it all, so ignore the pinch and grab a block of salt to go with it, and if they actually wrote a legitimate article, I wouldn't begrudge her one bit for postponing.

Anonymous said...

Her spokesperson said she's back in January. She's going to be shooting Noah and promoting Perks so going back in September would be crazy.
But you should read the whole article before commenting!!

Anonymous said...

Article said Emma will graduate in 2013. Her a-level grades being so good count for two terms, so she just has to do three years n if she does jan to June she's finished.
She's played it all extremely well, she's spread out her education but managed to not let it or her career suffer. I don't understand the flak, I think in balancing her education with safeguarding her future career that she's done a great job if she goes back in Jan.

Anonymous said...

Actually in the states most colleges do NOT go until June. The winter semester usually end at the end of April.

sparkvark111 said...

The Daily Mail prefaced the article in the same style they always have, ‘Begging the Question’, sensationalism, recycling old information and putting the most important information last. They mentioned the last year’s news about bullying (not-true) and her ‘film offers’ and ‘new path’ in the beginning which is nothing new. The only new information, basically, is that she is taking the fall semester off and resuming her studies in January.

I believe her original plan was to film ‘Your Voice in my Head’ in the summer, take her Zambia trip, and return to university in the fall. However, due to David Yates departure from the ‘Your Voice in my Head’ that opened her up to take the part in ‘Noah’ for the summer. So now she will need to finish ‘Noah’, promote ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ in September, and possibly shoot ‘Your Voice in my Head’ in the fall. Plans don't always workout like you expect.

Well Jan to April then, either way she'll have done about 3 years.

Sparkvark I think that's pretty much what happened. Schedules get moved around n She has to be flexible

Anna said...

Does anyone know what the movie of Noa is based on? On a book? And i don't mean the bible. That is the point, i am a little afraid what they will do with the story.

sparkvark111 said...

Anna,

The ‘Noah’ movie is definitely not based on the bible, but a French graphic novel called ‘NoĆ©’.

Here is the link.
http://www.slashfilm.com/image-info-graphic-version-darren-aronofskys-noah

Here was a part 1 of a summary of Ila’s character.

“Noah and his family find Ila as a wounded child while fleeing their home, which a tyrant (presumably Ray Winstone's character) has destroyed after taking offence with Noah. They rescue Ila, and flee with her into the ruins of the Garden of Eden where the 'Watchers' (six armed giants) dwell when trying to escape the tyrant's soldiers.”

Anonymous said...

Why does she feel the need to take off the autumn semester? She has nothing lined-up except for the Perks promotion.

Anna said...

Thanx Sparkvark,
I did't know that. I will check out the link.

Chris said...

It's starring Russell Crowe...so you know the body count is going to be high lol. And as far as college semesters go, it all varies. in my collegiate athletic conference we had a school finish in mid April and 2 go to late May...it all depends on breaks and how many weeks their academics view to be a semester.

sparkvark111 said...

The only thing I can think of is they are trying to film ‘Your Voice in my Head’ in the fall. It was mentioned that Emma Forest said a couple of months ago they were planning to shoot the film in the next six months. If they do not shoot the film in the fall, I am not sure when the next window of opportunity will be. Emma may need to defer again and plan the shoot for next year, if they do not do it this fall. Only time will tell what will happen.

Chris said...

@anonymous 6:25, Perks promotion will be going on for at least a month, starting roughly the first week of September to past the first day of October. So if Emma tried to go back this semester, she would be so stressed out trying to catch up to everybody while being behind up to a month in the school work. She would have to find a way to do 3 1/2 months of work in two months. I don't blame her one bit for taking this semester off.

The A levels you get in UK do not transfer to US Universities. Its an entire different grading system and its based on credits. Does anyone have a link saying it does? To my knowledge it does not.

Anonymous said...

anonymous 945 responding to Chris, your are saying Perks is going have a bigger promotion that HP? That's a bit strange when its on limited release. Where did you hear that?

Anonymous said...

Chris likes to exaggerate a bit, tbh.

BTW, 3 A levels do NOT obliterate an entire years worth of work, particularly not at an Ivy League. Whichever subjects are applicable to ones major will be taken into consideration. With a little research, Emma is majoring in English literature, so out of her three A levels, which were Literature, Art and Geography, which would count? Check Headingtons website to see the kind of grade range Emma's classmates scored in - most of the girls in her classes got the same marks/grades as she did. Its common to get 5 As at A Level, and she got three. A levels do not knock out two semesters in the US - she needs to do approximately another two years before graduating legally.

If she graduates before then, there is serious fraud involved.

@anonymous 3:20, Perks will be shown at the Toronto Film Festival in September sometime between the 6-16, you have the LA premiere on September 10th, possibly a New York premiere (not confirmed), the UK premiere will be October 3rd, and who knows how many TV shows and interviews she will have to do. That is why I believe the promotions could last a month.

Anonymous said...

I don't know why you won't just let this all play out. She may or she may not return in the near future. If she does graduate then she did go to college. If not, then she tried to finish college.

Anonymous said...

It's common to get five As at A level? We only do 3 A levels? Where are the other two from?

Anonymous said...

Perks promotion will last a long time due to it being released in different countries on different dates. Potter was released everywhere at about the same time so it was intense mass promotion. Lower budget movies often require just as much promotion but it's spread out. Perks will be spread out so will take up a lot of sept for the us and October for Europe.

Anonymous said...

Also A levels DO count in the US it depends on institution and course and how much over lap there is on the subject. And yes it could take out almost a year. Pretending you know stuff because you checked heading tons website etc is a bit silly. You clearly don't know much about a levels if you think most people sit five...

Anonymous said...

^At prestigious public schools in the UK, yes, it IS common. So many of my peers took more than 3. There is simply more expectation at schools of that ilk. I won't tell you which school I attended, nor which university I matriculated to, but the situation is similar to Emma's (ie Ivy League)

As I said, the A level course needs to relate to either the major/concentration, or some course in the core curriculum/prerequisite subjects for freshman year. I recieved As (this was before the time of A* at A Level), and recieved credit for a semester. Keep in mind I had 2 more As, and declared a major early on, so I had something to apply them toward.

My point was, Emma cannot recieve credit for an entire year of university - I don't know if Brown is strict or lenient, but its unlikely she'd even get credit for a full semester with 3 levels

‘If she graduates before then, there is serious fraud involved’…Really???

Crying fraud if Emma graduates next year is a bit of a reach unless you carefully exam her transcripts, which is frankly none of our business, we cannot make that conclusion. We cannot base her worthiness for graduation upon smatterings of information she speaks or what is reported, on websites, and whether or whether not she attended classes. Nor can you extrapolate class credits earned by the number of semesters you attend. I maybe preaching to the choir, but there are a number of ways to earn college credit besides classroom attendance such as distance learning, online classes, credit by exam, internship, transfer credit, as well as many lesser known methods. We do not know her exact degree program path, or how she acquired credits, or how many classes she attended per semester. There are some facts that we may not privy to and nor should we be privy. Whether she has satisfied the requirements for graduation is between Emma and Brown University and no one else. We can speculate all we want, but we cannot draw conclusion based upon the superficial information we know about her situation. :)

Anonymous said...

Take away what she may or may not have done with her education for a second cause all anyone can do is guess. It was a rep for Emma herself that said it was her last semester before graduating...so why lie about something you know you will be quoted regarding your client? People believed her rep when she denied anything to do with Gray before Emma herself had to come out and speak on it so why would the rep lie two weeks later about this?

Anonymous said...

Excellent A-levels count as credits from a junior college in USA- but not 2 semester worth. She took a Shakespeare summer course at RADA, so that counts. But I also believe that she would have to attend at least two more years, unless she completed online courses from Brown.

I guess I am not understanding how taking one semester off now equals two more years of attendance. :)

Its at least a year and a half. She left Oxford before third term and was seen in France during second term, so its likely that she missed two out of three at Worchester. She also has the whole fourth year remaininf

But then why would they lie about it?

So, Emma was ‘seen’ in France during Hilary and shot ‘The Bling Ring’ during the Spring break after Hilary. She spent two weeks in the U.S. Filming ‘The End of the World’ and attended the MTV Movie Awards at the end of Trinity. How do you know or deduce if she actually missed out on two terms…emphatically?

She left brown during what was her sophomore year even though she may have had enough credits, then she started in the Fall at Oxford, and last part of the school year at worcester she also postponed for Bling Ring. Now she is postponing again until January. No way she can be finished in 2013, and I don't think she really expects to. On her website, she said herself that she might have to go a semester as an explanation. No big deal! As for being seen in France, any student may take a few days off to go somewhere for a brief holiday.

Anonymous said...

Right on Sparkvark. Thanks for the explanation of how credits can be acquired. Of course I don't know, but I believe that Emma is most likely pursuing other avenues to acquire credits. During my uni time, I took at least 9 hours of independent learning and read Thomas Mann, J. Goethe, and Schiller in 3 different independent studies, wrote a paper for each and eventually had a long conversation with a prof for each author. These courses were done in three semesters. Then I took 6 hours of mail courses through the uni to fulfill a American History requirement and American Lit. All in all I accumulated 15 credit hours toward my degree in this way, but all these courses were done within the uni program. (This all happened at a US uni for a BA in German and a Masters in English lit.

I wish we would keep this echee junk from this website. He or she (unclear) only bad mouths emma with a continuous exhalation of bad breath.
I think it is awful what this person writes about emma. He should post his picture and tell us his story and let everyone blog about what they think to know about (it). I know it would be very ...heh...heh...heh questionable to say the least. So please no Echee here. If you want Echee stay there! This site is for fans who like and respect Emma. It doesn't mean we don't criticize, but we are fans.

I treat this as an Emma Watson news site rather than a fan site though, because of Eden's QnA.

As per news site, twisting words or grasping straws are not news worthy and only reserved for needless speculation. It just wastes time. Let it play out as I said and talking about it is getting annoying in that round-about way. Old news now anyway.

Lets talk about what is news. Perks moving to a Sept 21 release date. It's against high hitters and two films I'm interested in. Do you think it'll come on top? It may be the most mainstream-friendly film of the week but considering the star power of the other films on the block... idk.

Maybe The Alchemist is apart of an independent study she's doing?

She only missed one semester at Oxford, people need to stop making stuff up. My friend is at Oxford and she was there except for the last term.

Chris said...

@anonymous 4:14, I don't think it will make a lot of money it's opening weekend, but I do expect it to be a success. Last I heard (and it may have changed since) it is still a limited release. Now, I do expect it to be in more theatres than Marilyn's 300 or so but I expect roughly 1,000-1,200 theatres. But with the success of the books and the cast I do expect good comparitive numbers.

chris I don't where you come up with what you say. its a small indie film. this is not a huge blockbuster. its not as big or as long as you are saying it will be.

Anonymous said...

Thanks sparkvark for explaining the different avenues of acquiring college credits. And also thanx 8.9-8:56 for demonstrating your path in acquiring a semester worth of credits. I'm sure Emma has her path planned out for her. I believe she will complete her degree, and in the long haul, I also bet that she will do graduate and eventually post-graduate work. I don't think Emma is the kind of person, who would not complete a degree her be satisfied with the minimum. I know a 62 year old woman who is getting her Phd in philosophy. She was just to busy taking care of her family. All I am saying one is never too old for a good education. Emma is yet so young. I bet in three years she will have completed her Mst. at Oxford and...and will be moving on.

Chris said...

@anonymous 2:28. Where the hell did I say Perks would be a blockbuster? A 1,200 theatre showing is 1/3 of what usual blockbusters get, which is what I stated I think it will be. The Avengers opened to roughly 3,800 theatres in America, how the hell is my 1,200 guess even close to a blockbuster in your mind to attack me? I flat out said in my post that as far as I knew it was STILL a LIMITED RELEASE. Hell, I don't even expect it to be shown within a 90 minute radius of where I live, yeah that's blockbuster material right there. I would love for you to explain to me where I frackin said this would be a blockbuster film or did you simply not comprehend what you read and decided to blindly attack someone. I'll be waiting cupcake!

From the word-of-mouth of the early multiple screenings of ‘The Perk of Being a Wallflower’ suggests it will be a hit. I expect it will quickly move from limited to a wider release. ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ opened in 4 screens and took $130K per screen and now in wider release is a hit at $40M+ in the US. Starting a small movie in limited release saves expenses on distribution and advertising. If it does well, then it can move to expand as much as they see fit. How many screen ‘Perks…’ will eventually end up, remains to be seen. I personally think it will do exceedingly well. :)

Anonymous said...

If you can see Lionsgate's previous limited releases how many screens they've used on the first week I think it's safe to say that that will be the number of screens 'Perks' would most likely end up. Why did they push the opening date though? Is it just for the competition or something else.

I've read somewhere there where pics of Emma in Iceland...

I think Perks will be a hit. We are reading the book in Germany, and we will attend the cinema show in September I believe. Can't wait!
