Emma Watson Talks About Leaving Brown University and Denies Bullying Rumors
Reportedly, Emma Watson was said to be transferring from Brown University because of bullying. But Emma has spoke out about these rumors, completely denying them, and even talks about a party she threw at Brown.
“It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied. It made no sense at all. Brown has been the opposite. I’ve never even been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on FaceBook. Anyway, 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.’ I’ve been dealing with the media since I was nine. 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. I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me? Why doesn’t anyone ever pursue me?’ They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimidated.’ It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating. Sometimes, maybe because they feel intimidated, they feel they have to knock me down. They know perfectly well who I am, but they’ll ask me, ‘How are the Narnia films going?’,” says Emma Watson.
At First Class Fashionista, we realize there could be many reasons Emma Watson may be transferring. She’s a busy lady. Back in November, we were one of the first to share Emma Watson’s new fashion deal and in March, after the filming of the last Harry Potter film, we also told you about Emma taking on a new gig as a Lancome brand ambassador.
Emma Watson may decide to attend NYU.
