Emma Watson Excited For College Classes To Start

Emma Watson Excited For College Classes To Start

Harry Potter star Emma Watson has updated her blog to update fans on how her freshman week was like at Brown University.

The 19-year-old British actress wrote, “I know, according to the papers I was ‘definitely attending’ both Columbia and Yale, but I’ve finally arrived at Brown University and, while I wish that I could be in three places at once, I wouldn’t believe everything you read!”

Emma continued, “I arrived on Tuesday and I’m having the most amazing time. I’m still so excited to be here; I’ve already met so many incredible people. I’m over my jet lag and now I just want classes to start!! Hope you are all well and happy, and if you’ve just started college or university that it is everything you hoped it would be. Love Emma x

Lastly, she cleared up some rumors: “Oh and contrary to the reports you may have read, I didn’t arrive by helicopter. I’ve only been in one once when I was little and I was terrified. Now back to my studies!”

    love her.
    she seems “sane” unlike those young hollywood stars.

    Kudos to her.

    I had an odd feeling she didn’t arrive in a helicopter. She isn’t that attention hungry. I wish I was going to Brown. I am not that smart, and I would be a Sophmore, not a freshman. I’m a month younger than Emma, but she started college a year later than she normally would.

    I just hope she doesn’t have a roommate that doesn’t give easily into paparazzi or gossip sites and take photos of Emma sleeping, or taking a shower, or getting changed, stuff like that. That would suck for her. But it seemed she knew who her roommate was before she even got to college, so I guess she’s alright. But if someone offered me $10, 000 to take a photo of her, damn, that would be tempting. I would regret myself to the death for not doing it. That’s too much money to pass up.

  • LuckyL

    I can’t believe anyone believed that sh** in the first place.

  • milind

    she is cute n i love wat she is doing with her self

  • sillyme

    If she really wants to remain anonymous in school and lead a normal life there, probably better for her to not talk about it on Facebook.

  • leslieitis

    Oh my a second entry on JJ just a few days after entering college. I think Emma is going to disccover that since she isn’t “just like” the other students she won’t be able to be treated “just like” the other students. She’s going to be bothered or harrassed for quite some time still…maybe it will finally die down…maybe not. PS The fact that she will go back to the UK to do movie work while she is at university will make it impossible for her to get rid of her movie star image.

  • leslieitis

    “amazing” “incredible”…she sounds just like TrannyDan. These Potter stars all seem to use the same vocabulary. Next, I wonder how she will handle the lesbian advances that will doubtless be made to her. When you’re stuck in the midst of a gang of young people you can have lots of problems that you don’t when you live by yourself or with your family.

  • leslieitis

    @sillyme: Very pertinent point. She better stop blogging or communicating with her fans. That just “fans” the flames of her notoriety.

    as we read it hear, perhaps this site owe Emma an apology. Also kudo to this site for ignoring Emma’s request not to be pestered.I like the irony of Emma leaving these fair shores to avoid the paps and we’ve seen her more over these last couple of weeks than ever we did in the UK

  • http://twitter.com/nattaraya natalie

    i always think that the rumor was false.
    wanna read some interview about it

  • NT

    She seems lovely. Grounded too.

    Good luck Emma! x

  • me

    Go EMMA!! She’s so awesome!! I love that she’s excited for classes to start…that’s something Hermione Granger would say. lol. But I love her and I wish her the best. The helicopter thing made no sense to begin with.

  • me

    @sillyme:

    She DIDNT talk about it on facebook. Emma just said in another interview that she doesn’t do Social Networking. That means NO facebook, twitter, or myspace. She has a blog on her Official website that she updates every once in awhile to let her FANS know how she’s doing. She created the website because she got tired of so many false rumors popping up. I think it was a great idea and it’s a fantastic website.

  • gabby

    Emma rocks. I love her website and I’m so happy that she’s fitting in nicely. That is one brilliant young woman. :D

  • aly

    i like her! she seems like a normal person. and why should she keep everything private? if she’s excited and enjoying herself at brown, why not let people know about it? i find it admirable that she gives a crap to even go to college. who knows if she’ll stay in for the full run, but it’s still cool that she went!

  • gabby

    @aly:

    i’m assuming she wants to keep it private because it’s her business and it’s private life. that’s her right and she deserves that after being in the public eye so much. Emma was in school the whole time she was filming for Harry Potter, so I’m pretty sure she will graduate. that is one strong young woman.

  • twitter is a reliable source?!

    since Just Jared was THE website that started the “helicopter” rumour and actually sourced it from some random famewhore on TWITTER, I think Jared should at least own up to it AND give a retraction & an apology.

    Other websites and newspapers had the decency to do it, but then again, I guess Just Jared just doesn’t have the integrity.

  • May

    i thought it was really weird the fact that she had arrived by helicopter if she wanted a normal college experience! Glad the mistery was solved :D
    Congrats Emma!

  • Heather

    I’m sure she’ll fit in fine once the “new” wears off. If she stays out of trouble, there will be no reason to follow her around with a camera! She’s made good decisions so far, so give her some credit!

    As far as the helicoptor rumor, I didn’t believe it to begin with. Who makes this stuff up, and why is it reported without checking the facts???

  • Another mimi

    This is a great role model for all the young girls.
    .
    I think it’s wonderful she is expanding her education instead of just doing drugs and doing nothing in LA like so many other “actresses” we know.
    .
    Good for her!

  • love

    i loooooove her… she is just lovely :) wish more celebs were classy like her!

  • leslieitis

    @Heather: Sorry I can’t agree. As long as she is in the acting business cameras and paps will follow her around. She will go back to the UK in intervals from Brown to act in the rest of the Potter movies. I don’t believe that Jodie Foster was acting while she was at Yale, nor what’s her name at Harvard, not Gyllenhaal while at Columbia.

  • leslieitis

    Trannydan tried to act in movies and go to a private school (US high school) while he was doing it and found it impossible. The kids ganged up on him and made his life miserable. He had to quit and be tutored privately on the movie set. Now supposedly Brown students will act differently, but one cannot be too sure of this. If a gang of students is envious of her they could make her life quite miserable. Wait and see.

  • j

    stupid justjared. APOLOGIZE TO EMMA.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    it seemed really weird that she would go against her word of trying to be low key, she’s really not that type of person
    good luck emma =]

  • she shall remain nameless

    Only idiots who believe anything the media tells them assume her arriving in a helicopter is true! Ok, she’s not that much of a self absorbed diva! I wish I could attend Brown and be one of her new college friends…she seems like a great person minus being a Harry Potter star.

  • leslieitis

    @she shall remain nameless: Well what if she didn’t want you for a friend? Then you could become her enemy and make life miserable for her. That would be nifty too, right?

  • Les

    Umm Dan Radcliffe didn’t go to a school in the US.( If that’s the tranny Dan you keep insulting.)

    Secondly Portman did movies and went to college There is no reason Emma can’t film during summer breaks.

  • bebe

    emma watson is pretty. she is dress appropriately in her age and seem has her own good time to enjoying her life without fighting gossips mills and rags. she is smart and very success to enter ivy league college, rich and have a mature boyfriend, who is older than her and very not eye catching as a regular boy. she is normal and that’s why i love her. people can stop bashing her or not is just the matter of jealousy, it’s in some people genes.

  • leslieitis

    @Les: Of course Trannydan didn’t go to school in the USA. He lives in London and went to London schools. I call him Trannydan since he made a big thing of dating a tranny. He earned the nickname.

  • leslieitis

    @Les: Portman said she would not do novies while at Harvard so she could concentrate on her studies, but then went ahead and did movies. So much for her veracity. She also is an extreme Zionist and says she feels more a citizen of Israel than of the USA. Hmmmm….and she makes a lot of her Jewishness.

  • me

    @leslieitis:

    Obviously it’s different for Emma because she’s in the middle of making these HUGE movies and she’s obviously going to have to spend time promoting them in 2010 and 2011, so that’s definitely going to make fitting in a lot more difficult. But I think she can do it. Maybe she just won’t do a lot of interviews and since a lot of their promotion is in the US anyways…she will be fine.

  • jen

    @Kristin M:

    perhaps she had a gap year

  • Neena

    Good for Emma. I don’t see why she can’t do movies and attend Brown. She has to finish the Harry Potter movies, so i’m assuming she will film during her term breaks and the summer holidays.

    I like her; she is harmless and actually trying to achieve something.

    Plenty of famous child stars have gone to uni and they have coped. Sure the press will follow her around for a few days; but after a while they will leave her alone. Just like they did with Natalie Portman.

  • whortenia

    I know of a few child stars going to university: Witherspoon who dropped out of
    Stanford, Jake Gyllenhaal who dropped out of Colubmia, his sister who finished Columbia, Portman who finished Harvard and Jody Foster who went to Yale Drama (not the university itself). Name me some more who didn’t drop out.

  • whortenia

    She is still being snapped at Brown. There was a picture of her on another site marching in a procession at the college. She looked made up as for the movies. A bit odd, I thought. Does she have a makeup assistant with her, or has she learned how to make herself up as if she were to be filmed?
