There’s been some speculation that one of Hogwarts’ finest is leaving school due to bullying.
And not Hogwarts, mind you, but Rhode Island’s Brown University.
21-year-old Emma Watson, who has played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie series since the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 2001, has attended Brown University for the past two years (Granger would be so proud). However, when the starlet’s spokeswoman announced she wouldn’t be spending her third year at Brown, rumors began flying that Watson had chose to leave because her classmates were bullying her.
Most notably, they would chant “Ten points for Gryffindor!” when Watson correctly answered a question in class.
Still, the bullying – as well as the Gryffindor comments – apparently never happened.
