Emma Watson on College in New Issue of Vanity Fair, Behind the Scenes Video

Watson Interviews

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.

A behind the scenes video of an accompanying photo shoot is also now online, and can be viewed right here in our Video Galleries.

She looks GORGEOUS!!! I can’t wait to read the article! I love what she says about her relationship with Dan and Rupert. It’s so sweet. And Christopher Bailey (the guy she went to the Met Ball with and the creative director of Burberry) said some really nice things about her. Emma is just an amazing person!

It must be creepy meeting people that don’t act like you and do things different from you. I’m glad Emma adjusted though.

Such a neat small look into what she has been up to, and how things are going in college. She’s such a WONDERFUL role model for our girls, any age, every age. Her humility, poise, style, work ethic, and charm… all are great traits that we can look up to. And best of luck Emma, as you continue with your education and work life. YOU ARE BRILLIANT.

Quoting ledlieu:
“good on her to get her education even tho she wont have to work a day in her life if she doesn’t want to. True to Hermione!”


She’s in college, not trade school. I pity you if you don’t know the difference.

Holy Cow!, I didn’t know that Emma was in College! I think that its great that she wants to have a normal life. Its unfair to take that from someone. If she wants to be normal she can have it as far as I’m concerned, I don’t know if her normal friends will treat her normal because she is a major actress in The Harry Potter Series.

Such a beautful dress. As always Emma has a wonderful fashion sense. I’m happy to hear she’s enoying Brown and getting well adjusted to being normal.
