Emma Watson: Taking a Break from Brown

Emma Watson has announced that she’s taking time off from school at Brown to finish up work on professional projects.

“As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible,” the 20-year-old actress shared on her official website.

“I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working towards my degree… it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought : )” Emma added, thanking fans for their continuing support.

    Go news for fans. I’m glad she will finish her degree but I want to see her in more movies. There is only so much time in a day.

    “love studying pretty much more than anything”

    ok, obviously not, since you are quitting.

    her statement and actions dont match.

    she should just say she’s more into her acting career right now.
    nothing wrong with that. it would just sounds more truthful and make more sense if she said something more to that effect.

    That creep Harvey Weinstein is behind this. He also told her she needs long hair to get roles, and basically become like Blake Lively.

    Well this was kind of obvious since she hasn’t been there since December.

    But I don’t blame her for taking a semester off. I don’t understand how she was managing it all in the first place. Considering she’s busy working on a fashion line with Alberta Ferretti, about to start promoting Deathly Hallows part 2, will have to promote My Week With Marilyn in August/September, will start filming Perks of Being a Wallflower in June….there would be NO WAY for her to also be a full time student at Brown.

    A semester off is just what she needs…for sanity’s sake.
    Plus, she was also seen touring NYU, so I’m thinking she’s planning on taking some courses there in addition to Brown.

    Good grief. I don’t know how she does it all. lol.

    Smart. its better to take the time to do your best in school and all your projects rather than to do everything half-heartedly.

    Actually, Mailey she is under contract right now to do the promotion for HP. As is Radcliff and since he is in that NYC play and will miss some engagements, Emma is the professional to the core that will pick up the slack. She has always said she loves school. She will go back, but she is HONORING her word with the contract she signed. Brown will still be there next year or next semester. HP is at the end.

    there’s no rush, just take your time enjoying the ride. she’s only 20, after all.

    taylor swift should go to college and learn something.
    or join the peacecorps.
    or visit rwanda for a day or two.
    maybe then her head will come down just a touch from fairyland in the clouds.

    I think that’s what she was doing. Rushing. She’s trying to do everything at once and completely underestimated how hard and stressful it would be. But thankfully, now she’s figured out that she’s not superwoman (although she comes pretty freakin’ close) and will take her time.

    That idiot Franco ought to take some tips. He is so busy doing a bunch of things he does a crap job of them all. Maybe I’m giving him an excuse, he is just a bad actor.

    @mailey: school will always be around but acting opportunities will stop coming the minute you take a day off. the industry is fickle, and so are the public.

    and why I don’t think she is coming back

    Celia Says:


    She’ll go back. Education is too important to her. But she’s a non-traditional student. Most first time college students (especially the IVY league) don’t have full-fledged careers when they’re trying to get a degree. It’s a lot of work and if you don’t have the time to give it your full attention, it’s impossible to succeed and Emma knows this.
