Emma Watson: Columbia-Bound?

By: Celebuzz / June 24, 2009

It sounds like the student body at Columbia University is about to get that much hotter.

Just Jared reports that Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, who’s been preparing to begin her higher education, is listed in Columbia’s student directory. The 19-year-old actress is listed under the name “Charlotte E. Watson” (her given name is Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson).

In the past, Watson has remarked, “I just want to keep it private [my college choice] for as long as I can. I probably sound like a paranoid nut, but I’m doing this because I want to be normal. I really want anonymity.”

Better luck next time, Emma!

Maybe Watson can consult fellow Columbia student James Franco on how to balance the rigors of fame and academia. We’re guessing that his suggestion to her would be to get plenty of rest whenever the opportunity arises.
