Emma Watson might have taken some blows from the media and the general fanboy population when she chopped off her famous Hermione locks this past year, but the HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS star claims that there was no truth to the rumours she recently dropped out of Brown University because of bullying.
"It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied," she said, "It made no sense at all. Brown has been the opposite. I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook." She continued, "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.' I've been dealing with the media since I was nine."
But coming clean about her abrupt departure meant revealing that she was a bit of an ignoramus. "I wanted to pretend I wasn't as famous as I was," she explained to the Sunday Times Style magazine. "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."
You can catch Emma in the second half of DEATHLY HALLOWS out July 15th.
