Emma Watson’s hectic movie star schedule has finally caught up with her.

The Harry Potter starlet will be taking a bit of time off from her studies at Brown University, she announced on her blog today. The newly-pixie-haired beauty, 20, says:

Hi everyone
As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible … I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working towards my degree… it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought : )

Hope you are all well! Thank you for all your continuing support.
