Emma Watson becomes an Ivy League “Brunonian”


“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” star Emma Watson has graduated from her on-screen tutelage at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to the Ivy League, and in particular to Brown University.emma-watson2

The 19-year-old Watson told Paste magazine that she would be attending Brown in Providence, Rhode Island, confirming rumors to that effect that have been circulating recently.

Watson is a straight-A student, despite having largely grown up on a movie set since she starred in the first “Harry Potter” filmĀ in 2001.

Watson told Paste that she will attend Brown “to read literature.” Watson is the latest of several actors to attend Ivy League schools in the United States. Jodie Foster went to Yale University, where she, like Watson, focused on literature. More recently, Natalie Portman attended Harvard University.
