When Emma Watson took a sabatical from Brown's university in the US to concentrate on her fashion line, rumours abounded that the Harry Potter star had left due to bullying students. Stories swirled that some naughty types had taken compromising pictures of the actress and were emailing them around campus, a move which had forced Watson to leave the college. Well Emma has spoken to Vogue about these pesky snippets of gossip, and says it's all rubbish.
Emma told Vogue, 'It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied. It made no sense at all. Brown has been the opposite. I've never even been asked for a single 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 to Gryffindor'. I've been dealing with the media since I was nine. If I can't stand up to a few people giving me a hard time, it's a bit pathetic, really. I've had so much worse.'
