Emma Watson graduated from Brown University today.
The Harry Potter actress, who enrolled in the prestigious Ivy League school in 2009, donned a black gown and cap to receive her English literature degree at a commencement ceremony on the main campus in Providence, Rhode Island.
The 24-year-old actress added some extra glamor to the traditional graduation attire by applying bright red lipstick before sharing a picture of herself looking happy and relaxed on Twitter. Emma previously praised her classmates for giving her an opportunity to experience life away from the spotlight.
"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," she previously said.
Emma Watson is looking for an apartment in New York.
The 23-year-old actress reportedly has her eye on a lavish pad in an upmarket region of Manhattan, as she was spotted viewing properties in the area on Monday. It seems money is no object for the former Harry Potter star either, as she was looking at homes within a new building at 150 East 72nd Street, which has apartments priced up to $15 million, reports the New York Post newspaper.
The British beauty had previously looked at buying a New York home two years ago, and was said to have been considering splashing out on a $3.3 million penthouse near Central Park.
Emma - who is dating Oxford University rugby star Matthew Janney - is currently studying her final year of an English degree at Brown University in Rhode Island. The actress initially enrolled at Brown in 2010 but later dropped out to film the last Harry Potter film Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. She then transferred to Oxford University the following year but had to put her studies on hold when she was cast in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
Emma Watson is dating an Oxford University rugby hunk.
The 23-year-old actress - who split from William Adamowicz during the summer - has been seeing Matthew Janney, 21, and although their romance is still in the early stages the pair have hit it off well and are "very much into each other."
"It's early days but they're very much in to each other. Matt's a real hit with the girls but he may have finally met his match. She doesn't suffer fools gladly. But Matt's a lovely guy, charismatic and intelligent. They make a great couple," a source said.
Emma Watson has split from her long-term boyfriend.
The Harry Potter actress and William Adamowicz met when they were both students at Oxford University in the UK, and it has been confirmed they broke up during the summer.
"Emma and Will separated last summer and are no longer in touch," a spokesperson said.
The former couple were spotted together in November at an acoustic folk rock concert, but their romance is said to have been over months earlier. According to reports, the 23-year-old star's hectic film schedule was the reason for their break-up as she tries to find the balance between her education, personal life and movie career.
It was recently said Emma was looking to focus on her academic studies at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, US, where she is studying English. "Emma is in demand with Hollywood directors but has so much to focus on with her studies, that she has had to pass on a few things - she simply can't do everything. It's tough but she believes it was the right thing," a source previously claimed.
Emma Watson has turned down films to focus on her university exams.
The 23-year-old actress is studying English at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where she will be sitting her finals and needs to concentrate on her academic success. "Emma is in demand with Hollywood directors but has so much to focus on with her studies, that she has had to pass on a few things - she simply can't do everything. It's tough but she believes it was the right thing," a source said.
Emma was catapulted to the spotlight as school girl Hermione Granger in the film adaptations of Harry Potter where she starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). She and the other teenage stars were tutored on set for up to five hours a day, and despite having to balance her filming schedule with academics the blonde beauty managed to achieve eight A+ and two A grades during her GCSE school examinations - which are taken by students aged 14-16 in secondary education across the United Kingdom.
Josh Hutcherson loves Emma Watson.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hunk is a huge admirer of the Harry Potter star and is hoping to meet her next time he is London: "I love Emma Watson. I'm dying to meet her. I tried to get my manager to call, like, 'Er, could you like call Emma's manager and see if we could, like, meet or something?' It hasn't happened yet. One day, fingers crossed!"
The 21-year-old star has locked lips with stunning actresses including Jennifer Lawrence and Vanessa Hudgens on the big screen and admits he is not opposed to dating a co-star. "As far as I'm concerned, you're both actors, you understand each other's lifestyle, so it's a very natural thing to have happen," he explained.
Emma Watson is set to return to Brown University early next year.
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower actress - who began her studies at the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, campus in 2009 and studied there for two years before completing her third year at Oxford University in South England - is set to return to the prestigious university in January after taking an unofficial gap-year to concentrate on her career.
"Emma is planning on returning to studies in January," a spokesperson for the starlet said.
The 22-year-old actress is said to be hoping to finally secure her degree in English there after previously admitting she found her first two years there extremely difficult: "My first two years at Brown weren't easy, not because I was bullied or because anyone gave me a particularly hard time, but just because, you know, without the collegiate system... and at Brown everyone does completely different things and very much chooses their own path, which is great, but it's also much more difficult, too. You're not with a group of people all the time at one time."
Emma Watson has learned to "quality control" people around her.
The Harry Potter actress - who is currently dating student Will Adamowicz - approaches her relationships differently as she grows older, and wishes she had done the same in her formative years.
"I wish someone had told me at 15, 'You accept the love that you think you deserve.' I would have approached my relationships completely differently if they had. I like this idea of quality control - that we don't have to accept just anyone into our lives. People talk about love as though it just happens to you - as though you're a victim in it all, when actually you can make good choices and bad. But women have a natural tendency to want to nurture and take care of men. I tend to date people who are quite introspective. I like deep thinkers."
Emma has had trouble with friends in recent years, struggling to find a sold group when she first went to the US to study at Brown University in 2009:
Emma Watson was spotted kissing her new boyfriend at the Coachella music festival over the weekend.
The Harry Potter actress and her latest love - believed to be American student Will Adamovicz - have reportedly been dating since meeting in Oxford six months ago where they are both studying and weren't shy about showing their affection for each other.
The couple kissed and cuddled while watching bands including the Arctic Monkeys perform at the festival in California. A dressed down Emma - who turned 22 yesterday - sported jeans, a leopard print scarf and a feathered gilet with sunglasses as a hairband.
Last year, Emma complained men are intimidated by her fame and never ask her out: "It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me. I find it hard to believe I can be intimidating."
Emma Watson officially said goodbye to her years as Hermione Granger when she decided to make a bold and “liberating” move: she cut her hair.
“Yes, I cut my hair off a few days ago! I love it- feels incredible. Hope you like it!,” the Harry Potter star tweeted about her Mia Farrow-esque style. “I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever,” she added on her wall.
