Emma Watson: Gears up for Ivy League life
While the cast of "Harry Potter" might stay hush about plot lines, "Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince" star Emma Watson has revealed an important change of her future.
According to a famous magazine, Emma Watson has confirmed that she is going to be enrolled as a college freshman at Brown University sometime during this fall.
She tole the magazine, "I am going to Brown, which is an Ivy League establishment in the U.S.A. I've got a place there to read literature”.
In recent months, the studious star made a worldwide college tour that involved many stops on the East Coast and Great Britain. Though her "Potter" co-star Daniel Radcliffe previously told another newspaper that Emma was attending Brown, the actress remained mum on the subject until now.
This time Emma did not hide her enthusiasm for hitting the books.
She further said, "It sounds so geeky, but I really do like studying and reading, and if I'm not working on 'Harry Potter,' then my greatest relaxation is to sit with a book," "That's how I escape stress -- in literature. I always have several books on the go at any one moment, so it's no good you asking 'What's on the bedside table at the moment, Emma?' because often I can't even see the table."
Emma Watson did not realize that many people at Brown will recognize her for her performances and not for her test scores. However she was hopeful that her fellow students would get over it quickly.
She remarked, "I do hope that it will be only a short time before I am known as 'Emma Watson, the student from the U.K.' rather than 'Emma Watson who starred in those 'Harry Potter' films.'"
