Emma Watson is currently taking a break from her studies at Brown University, presumably to finish work on the final Harry Potter installment and other film and fashion projects. But the New York Daily News claims that Watson may have had other reasons for ditching class: The British actress was reportedly teased and taunted in and out of class.
A source told the paper that Watson was a regular participant in class discussions, but that her statements, however cogent, were often met with cheers like, “Three points for Gryffindor!” What’s more, Watson found herself being stalked by Harvard students at a Brown-vs.-Harvard football game, and had to be surrounded by security guards.
Watson says she’s still planning to get her degree, but now there’s speculation she’ll seek it somewhere else. Maybe there are just too many Harry Potter fans at Brown.
