Emma Watson Leaving Brown 2011-03-07 12:41:00

Are You Surprised That Emma Watson's Taking a Break From Brown?

This morning, Emma Watson shared the news that she's taking a break from school to focus on her career. She wrote on her website, "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." Emma's work on the Harry Potter franchise will end with the release of the final film this Summer, and she already has other projects lined up. The young actress, who's in her sophomore year, has always been vocal about her interest in school even with her hectic schedule and she says she will return. So we want to know — are you surprised that Emma's taking a break from Brown?

From what I read it just sounded like she was taking a semester/quarter or two off. There's nothing wrong or weird about that. I did it and I went back and graduated. This story is overblown.

i was rooting for her to be able to do it and i think that at some point she will finish but she's doing what's good for her professional career and i guess that's really key too. you never know when you're not going to be 'hot' anymore - so she might as well keep working while she can.

My money's on her not returning to school. I agree James Franco needs to disappear.

I can't believe she handled all that work up until this point. James Franco needs to take her cue and either act or get his Phd. God knows Hollywood wont miss him.

She didn't say she's not going to "stick it out", just taking a semester or two off, spreading her credits out. And at least Emma is INTERESTED in education, that's more than I can say for 95% of her peers in Hollywood.
