Hogwarts Grad Emma Watson Earns Brown Degree


It was quite a busy Memorial Day weekend in the world of entertainment. Starting with the international coverage of “two assholes [getting] married,” Macauly Culkin’s kazoo solo getting rudely interrupted by an overzealous fan, David Schwimmer aiding the NYPD in a stabbing investigation, and then, thankfully a breath of fresh/clean air with Emma Watson’s graduation from Brown University. That’s right, the Harry Potter/Perks of Being a Wallflower/Bling Ring star graduated with a degree in English Literature from the prestigious Ivy Leaguer. Watson first enrolled at the school back in 2009, but took a hiatus in 2011 to wrap up filming for the Harry Potter series. She described her early jitters about attending school saying, “On the first day, I walked into the canteen and everyone went completely silent and turned to look at me. I had to say to myself, ‘It’s okay, you can do this. You just have to take a deep breath and gather your courage.'” The star, courage on lock, celebrated her assimilation into certifiable adulthood by posting for an obligatory selfie.
