He tells UK’s Guardian, “[Emma's] very clever. Do you know her GCSE results? (bulges eyes) I was thrilled with mine – seven Bs, two As and an A*. I think Emma got three As and seven A*s – she’s incredibly academic, it’s frightening. Me and Rupert [Grint] to all intents and purposes dropped out of school. And she’s going to Brown.” (FYI: An A* is like an A+.)
Emma has said she wanted to be as normal as possible: â€œI just want to keep it private [my university choice] for as long as I can. I probably sound like a paranoid nut, but Iâ€™m doing this because I want to be normal. I really want anonymity. I want to do it properly, like everyone else.â€ Oops!!!
