A glamorous look from Emma Watson gets your attention on the cover of the July issue of Vogue.
The 21 year-old actress reveals her struggle with balancing all of her projects and education, her love of the artistic life, costar Daniel Radcliffe, how James Franco helped her figure things out and how she wants control after Harry Potter:
On the Harry Potter ‘bubble’ and Breaking Free: “I have had no control over my life … I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.”
On Inspiration from Patti Smith: “I want to live like Patti. I want to write like Patti … The book [her 2010 memoir Just Kids] was so honest and brave. I loved the way she sees the world. I really felt that life was more beautiful after I read it, and I felt more hopeful.”
On Daniel Radcliffe: “He understood what his role was … not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him.”
On Getting A Helping Hand From James Franco: “It was such a relief to speak to someone who is trying to do the same thing I’m doing. I talked to him about juggling studying and making films and going backward and forward. He’s not afraid or limited by what he fears people will say about it.”

Harry Potter star Emma Watson recently decided to leave the Brown University, sparking rumors that she was being bullied by her colleagues. The 21 year-old wanted to set the record straight and clean the image of Brown students.
Emma was not bullied! Emma says was never bullied in her life, which I find it really hard to believe. Anyhow, Emma just wants to take some time off to try to figure out what to do with her life and the next step in her academic career.
I felt the need to let you all know the reason I took a semester off from Brown had nothing to do with bullying as the media have been suggesting recently. I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown. This ’10 points to Gryffindor’ incident never even happened. I feel the need to say this because accusing Brown students of something as serious as bullying and this causing me to leave seems beyond unfair.
Please don’t try and speculate about what I might do in September – no one can possibly know because I don’t even know yet! Like my other fellow Brown students I am trying to figure out my third year and whether or not I will spend it abroad (this is common).
I hope you all liked the new Harry Potter trailer. I am off to Pittsbugh soon to start “The Perks of being a Wallflower”. I’ve just got back from hanging out with Stephen Chobosky (the director and writer), Logan and Ezra (the two other principal actors) and I already know this is going to be an incredible experience. I feel very lucky.
Hope you are all doing good.
Love Emma xx.
Best of luck, Emma!

Emma Watson has changed her mind and will not return to Brown University this fall.
In March the actress left a statement on her blog saying she was taking a semester off from college so she could handle some new professional jobs and close out the Harry Potter movies.
Late last week, online reports surfaced that she would be dropping out of the Rhode Island institution because of bullying but her spokesperson says not so fast: it’s just a change in the courses she wants to pursue, and Brown doesn’t offer them.
Vanessa Davies, spokesperson for the 21 year-old actress said Emma “absolutely loved her time at Brown” making many good friends from her short time there.
Davies does say Watson will be attending a different college in the fall, but did not name which university.
Watson will have lots of chances to answer questions about this soon – she will be doing loads of press for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in the coming months.
She is scheduled to start work on The Perks of Being a Wallflower with Logan Lerman, Nina Dobrev and Mae Whitman next month.

Emma Watson is taking a temporary time out from her college studies.
The 20 year-old actress and student has decided she’s trying to juggle to many projects while attending classes and needed to focus on one or the other. For now her movie making obligations win.
Watson posted this message 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.
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.
Emma’s got a lot going on with Harry Potter promotional duties, her role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, maybe starring in Incarceron with Taylor Lautner, more eco-conscious clothing with Alberta Ferretti – that’s a lot of responsibilities besides studying!
I’m sure she thought this over long and hard and made the best choice she could for herself.

Emma Watson strikes a sexy pose against an old motorcycle and amongst the green forest backdrop in the Spring/Summer teaser photo for People Tree’s latest collection.
Watson has been designing with the socially conscious company for a few years now and the Fair Trade label is something that Emma was looking for when she made the decision to endorse and work with the company:
“Fashion is a great way to empower people and give them skills; rather than give cash to charity you can help people by buying the clothes they make and supporting things they take pride in,” said Watson. “I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.”
The full collection goes on sale February 28th.

Emma Watson scored the Singapore cover of Seventeen magazine for December 2010. The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 actress has a fresh holiday look for the year ending issue.
Emma is always stylish and fashionable but one popular bandwagon the Brown University sophomore will not jump on is the celebrity fragrance train. Watson said:
“I can’t understand this fragrance thing. Why would you want to smell like somebody else? Don’t you want to smell like yourself?”
Watson is committed to continuing in the fashion industry in a capacity that helps others or the environment (such as her People Tree collaboration or her more recent pairing with Alberta Ferretti.) She is so strongly opposed to celebrity branding she said:
“The idea of making my own perfume makes me want to vomit.”
That’s pretty definitive. No Emma scent for the masses.

Head-turning Emma Watson appeared in New York City for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 premiere on November 16th. The Hermoine Granger actress is still amazed that her decision to chop off her long locks would cause such a commotion:
“I knew it would be kind of a shock, but I had no idea that it would be that big. Like everyone would make this much fuss over it,” Watson, who chopped her golden locks in August, told USA TODAY’s Andrea Mandell at the New York premiere.
Emma wears this hair style well – look how fabulous and effortless she looks in her sleek Calvin Klein dress! I think it’s hard for people to see little Hermoine growing up and that has a lot to do with how much people are focusing on her hair. This is a decidedly mature move for her.

Pink, perky and pixie Emma Watson is featured on the cover of Russia’s Elle Girl for November 2010. This cover is a nice contrast to the two wintery white ones for Vogue UK (see that cover here) and Marie Claire (and this one here.)
Watson is ready to step out of her comfort zone and put more of herself on the line. The Harry Potter actress recently said:
“Three months ago I cut my hair and at that moment I felt I became a woman,” she said.
“At the moment I’m just happy to be single. I want to live life to the full. But I’m more grown up and confident now. I’m ready to take more risks. I feel less girlish than ever.”
She also says she is happy at Brown University in Rhode Island and isn’t as recognized in the US as she is in the England but does miss Britain.
Lots more Emma (and Dan, Rupert, Tom, Evanna, Bonnie etc…) as everyone does more and more press for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 opening: November 19th.

Grabbing the cover of another December 2010 magazine cover Emma Watson is gorgeous on Marie Claire (see Emma’s Vogue UK feature here.) Since it is a winter issue and the editors are out of ideas, the actress is again in icy white with dark eyeliner and pale lips. It’s not that I think she doesn’t looks fabulous, but c’mon – let’s have some originality and choose to make a statement. Emma has beautiful features and can pull off just about any look.
For the interview, Watson gives us the scoop on her radical short hair cut, her awesome friends at Brown and how she is similar to her Harry Potter character, Hermoine Granger:
On her stylish, pixie cut:
“I’ve wanted to do it since I was about 16, and when Harry Potter ended in June, I just needed a change. It was quite symbolic for me. It’s very short; it was buzzed at the back and on the sides. And it’s really liberating that I can walk out without thinking about it.”
On her “protective” friends at Brown:
“I found a great group of girlfriends… Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me. They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I’m part of it. I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn’t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I’d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.”
On playing Harry Potter’s pal Hermione:
“Playing Hermione just came so naturally; I had a real affinity for her. I felt like I knew exactly who she was. Like me, she’s very loyal and determined, she’s very intelligent, and she has a lot of guy friends, as I do. Her eagerness to please and to have the right answer is definitely like me. I’m a perfectionist, so my bossiness definitely comes out.”
Emma will be doing a lot more press as the release for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 gets closer to release on November 19th.
