Emma Watson Is Going to Brown!

She’s really doing it!

While Harry Potter star Emma Watson has long been rumored to be attending Brown University in the fall (co-star Dan Radcliffe even accidentally said it), she has finally confirmed it to Paste Magazine.

She reveals, “I am [going to university this fall]—to Brown, which is an Ivy League establishment in the U.S.A. I’ve got a place there to read literature.”

“I’m not trying to hide or anything like that. It sounds so geeky, but I really do like studying and reading, and if I’m not working on Harry Potter, then my greatest relaxation is to sit with a book,” she explained. “That’s how I escape stress—in literature.”

Is she worried about fitting in with other normal college students, since, you know, she’s kinda famous? Watson says, “That’s inevitable, I suppose, some of them must have seen the films over the years. But I do hope that it will be only a short time before I am known as ‘Emma Watson, the student from the U.K.’ rather than ‘Emma Watson who starred in those Harry Potter films.'”

We have a feeling that won’t be happening anytime soon.
