The June 2010 issue of Vanity Fair magazine has a short piece on Emma Watson, in which the Hermione Granger actress discusses walking into American college life as a freshman at university, as well as her feelings first being cast in the films. Speaking to her first impression of her freshman year at school, Miss Watson relates:
"It was just awful," she recalls thinking at first, during freshman week. "I was like, I must be mad. Why am I doing this?” And what was with all the party-hearty stuff? She nervously attended her first frat party, hoping she might get into the swing of things. “I felt like I'd walked into an American teen movie. I picked up the red cups. I was like, Wow, they really do drink from these."
The young actress goes on to note in the article that, as time went on, she became fully acclimated to the new environment, and was able to attain her goal of having a normal college life.
ahahaha red cups! yep. go emma for being so brave and going to college! :) if i was famous and rich that would be really really tough, i cant even imagine. :/ and she lives with a room mate! that would be so weird, “hi, im emma watson. i go to fabulous parties all the time and wear gahzillion dollar dresses but now i want to be a college student, whats your name?” awwwkward. :/ i bet her room mate was super shocked.
A good and professional shoot – I just wish we could hear what was being said in the video.. the directions of the photographer, the ideas, commenting on the outcome and such..
Go Emma! It is so inspiring that she went through with the whole thing! The red cups thing was funny :) She totally makes we want to go to Brown. Too bad I would be a Freshie the year after she graduates, though.
I want that dress!! I loved uni, but I wouldn’t have done it if was her, would have drove me insane being famous and feeling self concious, fairplay!
Natalia if you are talking about the guy from the Met Gal the other night he was not her boyfriend he was the dress designer.
Emma is such a classic beauty she looked like old Hollywood in the hat. Really how many people can pull that look off.
I felt the same way my fist week of college I almost went home. I stayed and it was the best experience and I don’t mean the parties just the experience as a whole.
