I think I need to spend about ten minutes with Emma Watson. No, not like that. Get your minds out of the gutter. It just is that I cannot decide whether I think she is turning into something Hollywoodish and pretentious or making fun of herself. She gave an interview to The Sunday Times and after completing their crossword in 8 minutes, sat down and explained why she left Brown. She insists it was not bullying and that she can handle teasing. This is the part that kind of makes me want to believe she is being funny.
"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." See, and those are pretty funny which makes me like her. But, then in almost the next breath she talks about how guys do not date her or ask her out because she they are intimidated by her and the fame wall. Huh? Guys will ask anyone out anytime. Then she says the real reason she dropped out of Brown was that "I was in denial. I wanted to pretend I wasn't as famous as I was. 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."
Umm, I think what she is saying is that when she was at Brown and no one treated her like she was famous, really ticked her off and she realized she missed all the special attention and did not want it to go away which it very well could if she spent an entire four years at school. Luckily someone called her with a movie offer so she was able to leave school and return to being famous which is the only thing she knows. I honestly don't care if she goes to school or not. But, she just told me everyone treated her normally at school but that she was too famous to be at school. It's ok to say you missed it. It is all you have known since you were 9. Just be honest about it.
