Emma Watson: I Left Acting for Two Years to Discover Myself

Emma Watson shows her stripes while doing some retail therapy at American Apparel on Wednesday (June 12) in New York City.

“I basically took two years out and stepped as far away from it as I could – I mean the HP films were still coming out but I took time to really try and figure out who I was and what I wanted to do. I even considered not being an actress,” Emma recently shared about acting.

    Um, she didn’t even bother to get her college degree at Brown. I see that Bruce Willis’s and Demi Moore’s child graduated last week from Brown. She did the whole four years. Why couldn’t Watson?

    How come Natalie Portman, Jodie Foster and Brooke Shields all managed to graduate from Harvard, Yale and Princeton, respectively but Brown still can’t get a degree? All her classmates at Brown have graduated.

    @Frozoid: It’s not the first time I see you writing the same post, so to set the record straight: Scout didn’t take a year off, unlike Emma, besides she said that she needs to take a few classes to complete her degree, she didn’t abandon her education. Stop making these posts, as though you’re so sure you know everything about her studies.

    @BULLCRAP: @BULLCRAP: To become a public figure, having your life and privacy exposed and being under the pressure of the midia and public opinion is not everybody’s dream you know… not to mention she’s young and rich enough already so it’s normal to question yourself on that age…

    I remember when she said she might not act in the future… I’m so glad she changed her mind! Love her!

    @Frozoid: I don’t think the important thing here is when she’s going to graduate, I think what’s more important is how she’s doing it. I mean, Brown and Oxford Universities work in a really different way, and then she took classes at NYU… WTF! Maybe the Oxford blogs were right by saying that she took advantage of her “name”. She is a bad actress anyway.
