Emma Watson, the British actress and star of the Harry Potter movies, has revealed the real reason why she left Brown University in April 2011. It was speculated that Emma Watson was the subject of bullying and teasing because of her international fame, but the 21-year-old denies the rumours.
In an interview with the Sunday Times Style Magazine, Watson said, "It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied", adding, "It made no sense at all. Brown has been the opposite". The actress claims she was never asked for autographs or photographs, adding, "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". When pushed on what prompted her departure from the New York school, Watson admitted she was in "denial" about her level of fame, saying, "I was trying to seek out normality, but I kind of have to accept who I am, the position I'm in and what happened".
Emma Watson, who will next be seen in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2', is currently working on a number of forthcoming projects. She will star alongside Michelle Williams in the Marilyn Monroe biopic 'My Week with Marilyn', and is currently filming 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' with PAUL RUDD.
