Emma Watson considering U.S. colleges

Emma WatsonHarry Potter star Emma Watson is considering applying to American colleges now that she’s 18 and has finished school in Britain. “There are excellent universities over there [in the U.S.] and I’m applying at the moment,” she told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper. “If I go to America, I would do a liberal arts program.” Watson, who has made more than $17 million so far for her appearances in the Harry Potter films, scored straight A’s in her final exams. “I would like to go to university and complete a degree and so that will mean a break from acting,” she told the newspaper. “I’ve always tried to balance my education with my acting career, but I just don’t think it will be possible to juggle it with a degree course.” The final Harry Potter film will be completed next year.

    I think we should let Emma decide how much make-up she wants to wear…after all, it’s her face not yours!!

    She seems to be quite the academic. I would think it would be hard enough to get passing grades while filming blockbuster movies and doing promotional tours across the world, never mind straight A’s. Congrats, Emma.

    i love her. someone with success but still maintains a good head on her shoulders. the thing though is that she was tutored the whole time and i think that would’ve made it a little bit easier than having the regular school schedule. but still yay for her!

    good for her
    really enjoyed her in H.Potter, she’s a heck of a good actor, and wonderful to see her pursue her education too.

    Good for Emma Watson! Higher education is what it`s all about.It`s good to know that there are stars out there who place a emphasis on the importance of a good education(Natalie Portman and Brooke Shields are two other good examples).
    There are so many stars out there who neglected education for stardom and riches,because they really didn`t feel that they needed training for a career because acting is their career.But a education is a valuable resource when a person makes it work for them.
    Once again,good for Emma Watson!
