Emma Watson Clears Up Reasons for Dropping Out of Brown University

Emma Watson announced that her days as a co-ed at Brown University were coming to an end back in April, and, of course, that turned into speculation that it was because she was being bullied. Well, the feisty Harry Potter star says it ain't so. 

"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 said (via Us magazine).
"Anyway, even if I was being given a hard time, 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."
She says she decided to leave because she realized she's maybe too famous for campus life."I was in denial," she explained. "I wanted to pretend I wasn't as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality, but I kind of have to accept who I am, the position I'm in and what happened."
Plus, she couldn't get a man! "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 said. "It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating."
