Why Emma Watson dropped out of college
The rumors said that actress Emma Watson had left Brown College because she was bullied for her celebrity, but she said it’s far from the truth. Here is why she dropped out:
21-year-old Emma Watson said that her decision of leaving Brown University two months ago had nothing to do with what the media has written since the announcement. She was not bullied for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series. And even if she were, Emma said that she could have handled such a treatment.
In an interview to the Sunday Times Style Magazine she declared that he feels sad about the rumors. “It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied.” Emma said that the opposite was true, in fact and that it really made no sense that she left for such a superficial reason.
“I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus” she said. It’s hard to believe that she is not recognized in the campus or that no one admires her work, so the fact that nobody bothered her with asking for autographs proves that the people there really respect her. On another occasion she said to have given a party where there have been invited 100 students “and not a single person put a photo on Facebook.” Even if she were given a hard time, the actress who has been in the branch since she was 9 years old says she could handle mean remarks by now. “Even if I was being given a hard time, I wasn't going to wuss out of university because someone said 'Wingardium leviosa' to me in a corridor, or 'Ten points for Gryffindor.” Emma said and added “If I can't stand up to a few people giving me a hard time, it's a bit pathetic, really. I've had so much worse.”
When asked about the true reason that she gave up college, Emma said that she was in denial about who she was at present. “I wanted to pretend I wasn't as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality.”
Despite the fact that she tries to act like a normal person, she know she isn’t like everybody else. And one of the consequences is her love life state. Friends told her she is intimidating to guys so they don’t call her. “It must be the circus that goes around me” says Emma, who assures us she, as a person, is not intimidating at all.
why would someone say that they went to study academics at a university so they could pretend they weren't famous? so they could feel "normal?"
firstly, studying at Brown University is not normal.
I don't understand how someone could just drop studying because she claimed the only reason she went in the first place was because she wanted to feel normality.
emma watson would still be famous no matter what she does--going to university or not. that has nothing to do with it. is it really that she felt like her career in film would decline if she put time in being a student?
as a student, i find her reasons insulting. it sounds like she's saying that she left because she was FAMOUS not a STUDENT and they are two different things. and the fact that you can just get up and leave your studies..
who knows why she really left, it's none of our business. but since she is open to discuss her reasons, i find them a little offensive. i think Im just upset because I looked up to her, and i wanted to see her graduate from Brown. but I guess not...
Natalie Portman once said that her career as an actress would always be there, but her studies wouldn't. She said that before she graduated from Harvard.
