Rumor of Emma Watson Yale Announcement via Twitter False


Mar 04, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Yesterday, we told you of the numerous media outlets carrying a story which claimed actress Emma Watson supposedly announced via Twitter that she had been accepted into Yale. Thanks to, we now know these claims were indeed quite false. As posted on her official website, Emma Watson does NOT have a Twitter account, and the Hermione Granger actress is “still trying to decide whether she wants to attend University in the UK or the USA, and hasn’t accepted any placements at this time.”

Thanks so much to EmmaWatsonOfficial!

Wherever she goes to University, I hope she's happy!Avatar ImageCatherine says: oohh!

LOLAvatar ImageFonty says: A speedy reaction by Jo of EWO about the rumours. I still think that Emma Watson will actually wait for the responses of all the Universities that she has applied to, before beginning the final decision making process. And then, if she feels like it, she will anounce the place that she has selected. Just like any responsible person would do. However, this again shows the "standards" of journalism of many Internet "News" outlets and their inability to confirm simple facts before posting anything. Everbody is copying everybody. And in some cases, even after the rumour is busted, some still cling to it. Like Emma Watson still is working for Chanel ... which she isn´t. Avatar Imagefelixfelicis11 says: Why can't the media get it right? I was excited that she might be coming to America!Avatar Imagebookmonster79 says: Just goes to show you should not believe everything you hear on the internet.Avatar Imageafsha_j says: Yup..I agree..It was so obvious she isn't in twitter..thnk gudness i dint got my hopes high..xDAvatar Imagelau399 says: I'm so glad this is cleared up! I hate the media, they never get it right....thanks!!Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Glad that one's cleared up. :)Avatar Imagetinagin says: I'm betting she'll stay in the UK.Avatar Imagelupinblack2001 says: Yale!?!? No better be Harvard. Sorry Emma 10 year plus playing Hermione. Its the the maroon of Harvard. Plus the values of Yale more like Slytherin . No house elf rights at Yale. haha Avatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: As long as she's happy with whatever she finally decides! Thanks for clearing this up! Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Glad we know!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: The University's in the UK or the USA are all good so she has a lot to think about.Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: She better stay in UK, othervise she will lose her acentAvatar Imagesnapealicious says: I'm hoping for US.Avatar ImageBradyboy says: Why can't the media just wait until Emma announces it herself on the website? Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Good, now that's all clear... I wonder where she'll go ... Avatar Imagestevenk12468 says: She should probably stay in Britian. Young celebrities in America tend to go astray with all of the ridiculus media and drama. I live in America, but it seems like English celebrities are much more grounded and less egocentric. :pAvatar ImageMiss Smarticle says: You know, none of this confusion would even happen if you didn't have stupid people on the internet, pretending to be famous actors/actresses and such. Anyway, I hope Emma is happy with whatever university she ends up going to. :) Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Good luck to her as she deliberates her final decision, and I wish her the best of luck in whatever she does for her higher education!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Well, at least they were quick to jump on this rumor. I hate it when rumors grow legs and just start running all over the internet!Avatar Imagejonfrog says: i think that its none of our business no matter how good of a fan that you are to know what school she goes to or to try and sway her to go to your school. she'll go where ever she wants.Avatar Imagecleverssynonym says: Wasn't the rumor that she got in to Yale? Not that she decided to go there? She didn't deny that, and I bet she did get in! :)Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: Yale is hardcore, she's not that smart is she?Avatar Imageliebedance says: Hmm. I heard a while ago that she was considering a small liberal arts school near where I go to school and got excited. Oh the rumors.Avatar Imagecheekysnake09 says: Thanks for clearing this up! :)Avatar Imagekbicprez says: @dee, I agree. The rumor was only that she was accepted at Yale, not that she actually decided to go there. With her brains, I'd be shocked if she didn't get into Yale as well. Wherever she goes, I wish her all the best!Avatar Imagelivelovepotter says: o my gosh i wish that emma would attend school in the us!!!!! although it would be sort of strange for her because she would probably be attacked by fans every day 24 7 if they knew where she went to school...Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Good to know! :)Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: Twitter is garbageAvatar Imageiamminerva says: Maybe she shouldn't announce her decision. Wherever she decides to go, there will surely be paparazzi to follow. That will become quite tiresome for Emma and university officials to deal with. If that happens, she'll have to keep a low profile to make them get bored and go away.Avatar ImageHarryfan24 says: Thank you for clearing this issue up!Avatar ImageNayNay3782 says: haha theres so many different rumors about her going to different schools. LOLAvatar ImageAphrael says: That's the media for you. *sigh* Whatever her choice may be, I wish her the best of luck in her future education plans. She's a very bright girl.Avatar ImageRightLeftMiddle says: I wonder what she wants to study?? I'm going to university next year! It was be freaking awesome if we went to the same university. Except I might be creapy and stalkerish!Avatar ImageAngelasCrochetingCorner says: Thanks for clearing this up. Good luck Emma. Avatar ImagePineappleCrush says: Ohhh, that would be really awesome if she went to Yale, its such a great school and has such a wonderful campus.... I would die happy if I could go there for an entire semester haha! I would most likely get in (I've never actually tried, though, but even the application fee is expensive!!) but even if I did get in, I could never afford it, though.... Emma is such an inspiration though :) It's nice to have role models that we can actually look up to! Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Thanks for clearing that up. She should do whatever makes her happy. Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: As a Connecticut resident, I have to say that it would be really, really awesome for her to go to Yale ;)Avatar ImageSidish_black6 says: I think this is the twitter id : Emma_watson Avatar Imagehermione467 says: Good luck, Emma :)!Avatar ImageGertie Keddle says: Twitter is pretty niffty, but things like this just prove that you can't rely on social networking sites.Avatar ImageLizbit says: Since most universities won't be sending out letters for another few weeks I'm not taking anything seriously till then. Even so unless it comes from Emma's people it probably a bunch of rubbish.
