Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has today updated her official website with a post in response to recent rumours that she is taking time off from Brown because she was bullied. The actress writes:

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.

students I am trying to figure out my third year and whether or not I
will spend it abroad (this is common).

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.

Dear all,

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.

Take care,

Love Emma xx.
