Today, Emma Watson graduated from one of the most prestigious Ivy League colleges, Brown University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. She may be best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the movie adaptions of the Harry Potter series, but this young woman was determined to acquire an education—while simultaneously starring in 4 films (two of which were the last installments of the Harry Potter franchise). I just wanted to take a moment and praise Ms. Watson for her accomplishments. You don’t see her in the headlines for drug involvement or rehab or what have you. No. Some associations tied to her name include modeling, designing eco-friendly clothing, education, promoting positive body image, and supporting schools in Africa. To me, this is the epitome of a great role model not only for young girls but for anyone. To borrow a clichéd saying, she’s got a good head on her shoulders. Besides, English literature is pretty darn cool anyhow.
Filming the torture scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 where Bellatrix is torturing Hermione at the Malfoy’s Manor proved to be very intense for the actors involved (Most of the scene was cut to avoid an R rating in the USA and a 15 rating in the UK). So intense and brutal as it was that Helena Bonham Carter approached Emma Watson right afterward to make sure they were still on good terms.
I really want to see the original scene
"So many people told me it wasn’t possible (attending university). I kept saying ‘I don’t care.’ This is what I want. And graduation will, for me, be symbolic of all that. I will be there. And I’ll be throwing a huge party. And getting very drunk.”
Number one beauty tip for all girls that look up to you.

People who are close to me know, they so know, that there were days when it was decidedly unglamorous. And I was so tired, I would fall asleep anywhere. They’ll never be released, but the onset photographer has pictures of me falling asleep everywhere. Like on chairs, on the floor, in the middle of a set, all curled up.
Like a cat…There were times when crew members didn’t know where to find me, but they knew I’d be curled up in a ball somewhere.

this looks like a pretty painting or something
Honestly, this might be one of my favorite candids of them
