Emma Watson’s international fame as a “Harry Potter” star didn’t get her bullied out of Brown University as rumors suggested, but it might be putting a crimp in her social life.
The 21-year-old told the U.K.’s Sunday Times Style magazine that landing a date hasn’t been easy.
“I say to my friends, 'Why hasn't X called me? Why doesn't anyone ever pursue me?' They're like, 'Probably because they're intimidated.' It must be the fame wall," she told the magazine, according to Us Weekly. "It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating.”
While the “fame wall” may be stopping potential suitors, it didn’t cause problems for her at Brown. The actress, who began classes at the Rhode Island school in 2009, announced she was departing from the institution in April to transfer to another school – and not because of bullies, she reiterated to the Sunday Times.
“It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I was being bullied…It made no sense at all,” she said. "I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook.”
And even if she had been given a hard time, Watson goes on, “I wasn't going to wuss out of university because someone said 'Wingardium leviosa' to me in a corridor, or 'Ten points for Gryffindor.' I've been dealing with the media since I was nine. If I can't stand up to a few people giving me a hard time, it's a bit pathetic, really. I've had so much worse."
Magnificent issues altogether, you just gained a new reader. What might you recommend about your post that you made some days ago? Any positive?
I love u emma nd i darely mean it......
do u care?
magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, ayeomoni ajolaye. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.
his email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
if you need or want to ask me anything my e-mail is: email@example.com
It the haircut. There. I said it.
Somebody tell Emma to call me, there done deal.
Why does she say that? She is dating Co Star Johnny Simmons, they met two weeks ago at the set of their new movie.
Lv u emma itz ur life live it swt hrt nd may be m the first indian to publish a comment over emma nd i jst love emma nd dnt mind me callng u emma coz m jst of 15 nd u hv corrsed u 20 so plz rply if u care 4 my little hrt that silently nd lovingly cares for u
Hi emma dont knw what to say bt u 'll nt believe i love the way u act in the film hp..... Nd nthng else emma she jst awesome
Never mind the troll who is impersonating our friend peace. U can always tell the difference from the real peace and the fake peace. The real 1 is cool, the fake 1 talks crap. (Like the dingleberry faker is)
I've always tried to stick by the golden rule that one good troll deserves better one. Some excel at the craft, while others should really find a schtick more in keeping with their minimum wage pay grade. There really should be a minimum IQ requirement to post anything on the internet, but thanks for the heads up. To put it in pirate terms (sorry, I got dragged off to that ghastly Johnny Depp movie last night), "Arrrr...there be spoofers!"
I will date you Emma give me a shot please!
Maybe it's her haircut.
Hi everyone, Hi,.... I'm the alternative to bad girl movie starth, aren't I cute? I'm tho down to earth, I swear. 5 years from now, my limo driver will also be my heroine dealer and some judge will be issuing me my last chance before I get 2 weeks in jail. Hi, fanth, hi.....
The lesbian behind me? that's my publicist, chill around her, but I can sum it up in one word, "do-you-have-a-joint?"..........that's 5 words Emma......."see what I mean?" Light this b-thch.
If I were 10 years younger I'd bust out the charm and nail down a releationship! Oh, and I could get all my Potter questions answered over dinner or curled up on the couch. We could even role play. I'd be Ron of course :) Bwaahahahaha!
Love ya Emma!
She can play with my magic wand any day.
Why is everyone slamming this girl..she's a talented and attractive young lady with a promising career ahead of her. Best wishes, Emma.
@madr@p3r–i'm rollin' laughing! You're a trip!
I got a wand for her. Giggity.
If I offended you, good!! Now grow up!!
My Mommy yells like you when she forgets to take her "special medicine". Then she starts talking to the invisible people and Dad looks at her funny then tells me to go to my room. Then some guys in white show up and take her on "vacation".
Quite obviously, I'd love to butter her muffin.
It's perfectly clear that the girls at brown are very jealous of you Emma, and I'm sure the guys there are just intimidated by your social standing. It makes no sense that people would mock your role in harry potter, id like to see the same people insult Tom Hanks for acting as a near retarded man in Forest Gump, or Heath Ledger for playing as a gay cowboy.(god rest his soul) You're a beauty and a good person and people take advantage of that. Don't get upset over a nobody who's just looking to make themselves feel better. I'm sure there are thousands of men who would give an arm and a leg to go on a single date to get to know you, Im one of them.(though I'm not going to an ivy league university) Wishful thinking, but still.
God you are all so immature!!
You are immature!
You are immature, ya butthole.
I dont know about fame but Ole Grandad wouldnt mind screwing her up that raw poo poo slider.
is she transferring out cuz she's flunking?
i'd ask her out in a second........but that could be b/c i have never seen a harry potter movie!!! besides who'd want to date a "actors/actresses" who wanted to be treated different just b/c they were in a film..........that person would be a jerk.......at least she seems like she wants to be treated like a normal person!
Celebrities are people too,...I can not see why anyone would not want to date her. Very pretty girl. I agree at ones persons post, the photo used doesn't do her justice. Good luck at your new school and can't wait for the final Potter.
I would love to date her. I to have trouble getting a date.
I want to sling my goober juice in her face. OH!! Nevermind.
Emma, you can call me anytime. Your gorgeous, id go out with you anytime
Emma Watson is so awesome! :)
All of you need to just shut the hell up! Leave the girl alone!! If she wants her hair to look like that fine, I am guessing that not all of you look SOOO hott either!! GROW UP you all act like your 5 on here! Do u guys really think ppl care abt what you think when it comes to somebody who by far is way more famous than any of you? When I bet most of you didn't even graduate from highschool!! Yea my guess is half the ppl writing comments on here arnt listening to the other half, which mean you are all pretty much just talking to yourself, which makes you all pretty stupid! Grow up, and leave Emma alone!!
Mam, quite frankly your statement that we act like 5 year olds is offensive to me. I'm 5 and a 1/2 and carry myself in an erudite fashion, as do my peers.
Go to a school that is isn't full of Ivy league snobs! Go to Wisconsin Where you can find better beer and quality education!
Man I really like this chick. Looks, intelligence, beauty, and personality.
That is one ugly dress.
I am 13 years your senior Emma. I would ask you out in a humming bird heart beat! It has nothing to do with your money and everything to do with your beauty.
I transferred from Brown after 2 years, as well. Of course, when I did so, it didn't make the news... It's a good fit for some people, but if it's not your thing, it's definitely not your thing. I honestly felt like I got a better education once I transferred to a state school in the Midwest, anyway.
Emma I would love to take you out
She's a cutie! If I was younger, I'd have a serious crush on her. Come on boys! Man up and ask this girl out!
Are you kidding? If there were any way to get her number or to "chance" a run in with her, I'd give my right arm. She's stunning!!
hi ema h* r* u* i like your smile
and you hear style
Lol hear style.
LMAO @ Uncle Dutch!!!
I forgot to mention that my Uncle Dutch takes me in the butt on a regular basis.
Teh ghey is strong with this one. I think it's wonderful that you named your dog after me. If Ms. Watson ever reads this thread, she's going to leave with the liable impression all young American men are a putz-pounding pack of puerile pin heads. Pentagonal alliteration word score!
I love her hair like that, and some of you ppl need to open ur minds...she's cute either way.
Anyway, maybe it's a personality thing...maybe that's the reason why guys aren't calling her back. Is she down-to-earth, is she humble? Who knows, I don't. But that's something to consider. (Not saying she has to be modest & quiet to get a boy though!).
Ugh...please ditch the butch hairdo....ugh. That and you need to stop immitating Karen Carpenter with your skinniness. Other than that...cute as a button....hair grows back...please let it do that.
I like you Emma and if I saw you in person and someone said something mean I would make them eat their words with a spiked baseball bat. American college students are nothing but drunken buffoons that lack class and independence. Where I believe education is important I also believe schools are corrupted by our crap job market. Emma. Will you marry me? Just figured I'd put that out there. B
We aren't all bad, please don't generalize. Also, on the topic of Emma, she's not leaving Brown because she was bullied. Please read and comprehend before posting online.
Oh.. and this article isn't helping matters either. =D
Maybe the intimidation part means the intimidated guys are waiting for her to make the first move.
Wow..the human race never ceases to amaze me!! Lol
I iz gonna pump her plump rump with my big ol stump. I got a monster sized meat stick to plunge into her taco! She iz gonna be walkin bowlegged for a week! When she be screamin for more, she be forgettin about all those fairies from Brown U. Bunch of freaks!!
We love (you) emma". And know this god, well send you love! .God Bless.
Jealousy is a green-eyed monster. She is Fab!
I'll date you Emma! Call me, 489-4608, no that was Alicia, er. 867-5309, wait that was for Jenny. Darn. just tweet, no don't tweet me, I won't admit I lied in front of the nation. Dating this year has gotten tough.
It's 'bullied' you idiots.
Hire back your proof readers.
Let's just face it Emma, getting a date at Brown has never been easy! People just don't know how to date here.
Wolf Blitzer is a Jew. I'm just saying...
I'd drop a load on her chin.
I go to Brown and I had "relations" with her. She just didn't know it nor was she physically involved. ; )
People.... can we at least stick to the topic of the article please? Some of these comments are absolutely ridiculous ( marriage, "black coat", haircut, dates).
The topic is of Ms. Emma leaving Brown. She is a grown woman and if she wants to change what school she wants to go to, that is her personal choice. Wether or not she chose to change schools because she was getting "bullied" or because she can't find a "date" is her CHOICE!
Wow. So many crude commenters here. Just wanted to wish Emma well, and hope she finds a better fit for university. I grew up near Providence and I like it and all, but I can understand why 2 academic years there would be enough. Best wishes.
if anyyone out there knows this chica, hook me up. i wanna get my tongue up her a$$ hole and listen to her giggle. please. i need help
Jeff, your statement itself is a regurgitation of a self-aggrandizing feigned condecending tone-how Parisian of you. At last check, our students were still innovating left and right. I reject the hipster cynicism of our more disaffected kids (I'm guessing from your post that your pretty young). Give a place like Brown a shot some time. You'll be impressed.
Shame, seems like a lovely young woman.
I'm a single handsome doctor. Will you go out with me?
Toss Brown – come to Berkeley. Let me wrap you in my big black coat and show you where you made your first mistake.
She's not a good person. I've met someone who came across her in a bar when she was under 21 drinking and acting like a queen
WRONG! I actually attended a party she was at last year and she was NICE! Don't believe what you hear. It's that kind of talk that plagues her everyday life.
She is cute. New hairdo would work wonders.
Emma, I will marry you for 1/2 of your millions. Please let me know ASAP.
I'll take you out on a date. I think you are very intelligent and very pretty.
At the risk of appearing to just be another creepy old guy, Emma dear...have you considered dating an older man? Young women who can get past the disparity in age invariably discover that older men are more apt to treat them much better than younger ones.
No? Oh well...it was worth a try. For what it's worth...I think the new do is smokin!' And whatever you do, stay away from that weird Beiber kid. I'm still not convinced "he's" not a uber-butch lesbian, but then again I thought the same thing about Wayne Newton back in the day.
Shed be better off getting w/someone who didnt know who she was. But who doesnt? Theyd be more apt to like her for herself not just her money/fame. Keep up with with your studies. Brains better than beauty but your lucky b/c you have both.
Can she cook and do laundry?
More than the spacebar is stupid.
How deliciously ironic – my space bar is messed up!
I'm typing on a phone & the space bar is stuck! How deliciously ironic!
I see my words running together – I'm typing on a phone & the space bar is stuck! How deliciously ironic!
I hope she meets a guy who doesn't have clue who she is and falls in love with her for her charm and her brains and her sweet spirit. You're a doll, Emma, and we love you!
And excuse my words running together – I'm typing on a phone & the space bar is stuck! How deliciously ironic!
Why does Emma even want to date the morons out there? She should enjoy hertime in university, & wait until she meets an intellectual man who she canmatch wits with. And Matt, Ihave to agree with you – it'spathetic how the majority of people can't spell or knowhow to use the proper punctuation. I'd marry you too! :)
She really is pretty ! Im not buying the whole Im lonely bit ! Shes a freakin millionaire ! Whats wrong Emma? Are your standards too high ? What guy wouldnt want to be with you if you truly gave him a chance ?
my god, let her live her life! Since when is her relationship status anyone's business. I'm pretty sure Emma's smart enough to choose for herself! Her hair is her business...I doubt she cares what you think. Love you Em!
CNN, Please change the picture you have up of this beautiful girl. I swore for a second the one that's up now was Ron Paul in a dress. : (
If it was anyone but you, we would. Peace says you're a do()chebag so absolutely not. Now, GO F()CK YOURSELF!
Make your decisions not without thought but with forethought and always look on the lighter side. Love always, Elmo Riffcan
If they don't want to date you its because.... Well that's the thing there is no reason for it. So if they don't want to date you i'll marry you instead, on the spot. That women is a goddess!! She looks like a sweet heart. smh at all those people who didn't follow up with a phone call after the date.
She is a great tole model for young ladies. Deacent. Nice. Honest. Smart. Hopefully the creeps in hollywood wont ruin her.
I sure hope she stays nice and innocent like. She was just incredible in the first Harry Potter movie. Even my 92 year old grandma thought she seemed like a doll.
Umm Serial killers seem like really nice people. Your granny is off her rocker! Em don't worry about not getting any dates, no real guys could keep up with all you've done in your life so far. Don't tie yourself down to some jelous insecure guy that will ruin what you've accomplished. Keep up the good work!
Please ppl. Really she beautiful young lady, but college kids suck!! They are jealous of her. She is trying to make real friends, an date men. Heck if she is lesbian or bi hell I wanna join. Lol. That is no reason for ppl to hate her an not to party with her.I would have ....
this is a comment for emma
Emma looks wonderful with short hair, as do Many, Many young women today!! Where did you get your ridiculous 99.9999 statistic from??? She woulnt date you anyway for having such a neanderthal view!!!
Matt, will you marry me? It's so nice to see someone else that can spell and cares and has humor!
I will marry you, Jenn I... for I also care about grammar and have a sense of humor.
Hey jenn I, you forgot to capitalize the J.
Call me. I'll treat you like a princess.
i shiver to think that there are guys out there that got her number and didn't call her. just what in the hell could possibly be going through your head?? it's like they're mario and a star just came out of the coin block and they thought "....nah, i think that would be too awesome"
Oh, and it's not levio-SA, it's levi-O-sa. Honestly Hermione, sometimes one wonders how Hogwarts ever saw fit to graduate you.
Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I dont believe she graduated...?
She did go back and graduate according to Rowling.
I was thinking about it today. How do they get water ? The centipede peoples ?
I agree with most, she is cutie. But i speak for 99.9999% of males – grow your hair back out! Your haircut is awful. No guy on the face of the earth wants to date a girl with that kind of look. Awful
Speak for yourself, I'd date the hell out of her, short hair or not.
Thank God you DON'T speak for 99.999% of all males...just the handful in your narrow-minded circle of friends. No self-respecting woman would have the slightest interest in going out with men as shallow as you are.
Angelina in Hackers = best short hair ever!!!
Figures a do()chebag like you would think Angelina Buttface was goog looking.
I would go out with her even if she was bald!!!
She is a cutie. Also seems like a super nice person.
Just leave, those schools are full of ugly personalities who were raised in trailer parks and act like angry know it alls.
I find that statement incredibly offensive. I know several individuals who attend Brown and they are all lovely. People who go to universities of that caliber work hard and care about their future. Even if they grew up in "trailers", they were motivated enough to seek higher education. There are ugly personalities everywhere, not just at ivy league schools, but there are compassionate, thoughtful people as well.
Don't be so quick to judge.
Awww poor thing your incredibly offended? Seriously your life is so lame your upset because someone called people who attended brown ugly? LOL grow a pair, seriously! Stuck up snobbiess!
Emma you are an Amazing actris.. If no one wants to date you is because they're all GAY! Kepp your head up and someone special will find you ;)...
Boy, I am starting to really understand why it is our unemployment rate in this country is so high! It's because our citizens CANT EVEN WRITE OR SPELL A SINGLE SENTENCE CORRECTLY!!!!!!!!!!
Matt, you're getting it, yes.
Actually Matt...I blame the current state on the economy on the fact that our education system is failing to teach students cognitive skills. All they teach is how to regurgitate information, but not how to actually think for yourself or to extrapolate a solution based on previous experience. I find the majority of the people out there have no ability to think for themselves. They just want someone to tell them the answer so they can spit it out at a later date. Americans as a whole are lazy and it started with our education.
Lets re-name these entyre thredd to "How Spelling-Challenged Peeple Vju Laif and Stuf." :)
I want to smell her chair
Next time, just say what you really want.
Yuck, "Orange Julius"...you need to smell the inside of a psychiatric ward.
how about you guys spell 'bullied' right in your headline. jeez.
If she did get bullied it was becouse she is gay.
Not the sharpest tool in the shed, are ya?
Oh to be 21 and have such problems. Non-issue really!
She's one of the "Emma" Triade. Emma Stone, Emma Roberts and Emma Watson. The are all young, beautiful and talented.
Did you see Emma Roberts in Scream 4? I don't think I'd ever include her name and talented in the same sentence. She was awful.
I guess everyone's got a right to their opinion.
Yeah, that's why they don't call you back.
Emma will you go out with me?
also, she is SUCH a BEAUTIFUL girl, yet they choose a terrible picture of her... Fail.
Huh?? She looks awesome in that photo!
Well she always looks awesome! But I think there are a thousand other images that are far better than this one.
Leave the judgment of "awesomeness" to us guys, she's gorgeous on that photo – period!
Bulled, or bullied? Spell check!
i was thinking the same thing. on another note, Emma Ill go out with you!
Bulled does pass spell check, it just the wrong word.
They're too cheap to hire a human spell/word checker.
John M: I care, that is why I made a comment. Also, if CNN's editor is too freaking lazy to do his/her job properly, then they can give the job to me.
According to the story, she cares.
Who cares? She's only 21, she has her whole life in front of her to go out with boys on dates. She needs to keep her head down, stay smart, stay grounded, and don't mess about with idiots, drugs, drink.
Should we go back to the Human Centipede blog and beat up the person who called our discussion stupid?
You're actually pretty "cute" Emily. I'd date ya anytime!!
And who's this Emily, DC?
It makes me laugh how many people comment "who cares" on these boards ... you're obviously taking the time to read the article and then comment – you care. People who don't care are reading something else.
Guest...so you have never read anything in your life and then thought..."eh who cares?" It must be great to never have to read something you don't agree with and feel everything you do read to be a prefect use of your time...
I'll date her! lol
Are you kidding me?? I would be very into her chamber of secrets
i think she's great and I hope she is transfering to another top school. Go Emma!
Don't be a moron- what 21 year old girl doesn't want to date? In hindsight, maybe she should focus on different things but as a 21 year old girl myself, boys are pretty important right about now.
Very good :)
Hahahaha Classic Weiner !!!!
