Emma Watson: College Is Really Important To Me

Emma Watson: College Is Really Important To Me

Emma Watson is loving the college life.

The 20-year-old sophomore student dished to Parade mag about keeping off the freshman 15, saying no to acting for now and learning to have fun in her life. Check it:

On her campus guilty pleasure: “Bagels–they’re the best thing ever! Americans just love variety; there’s so much choice, it’s overwhelming. But I love trying the blueberry and raisin and cinnamon bagels. Luckily, I exercise a lot.”

On getting offers thrown at her: “I get some amazing offers to act, and sometimes it’s hard to say, ‘No, I’m going to stay here and do my homework.’ People are like, ‘What do you mean she’s not available?’ I may do some theater next summer, but this college experience is really important to me, and I won’t give it up for anything. I’m not going to school just for the academics–I wanted to share ideas, to be around people who are passionate about learning.”

On learning to have fun: “Fun is something I’ve undervalued in the last 10 years. I never made time for it, yet it’s so important to your health and general happiness. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I have to learn to be good at having fun.”

    I love how she is worth millions of dollars and still is getting her education. Many young stars get rich and take their education for granted. In 20 years, their careers will be faded and they have no backup plan. This girl is smart! Getting an education is the best thing you can do in your life (I live by that). I want to be an actress as well, but I know I still need an education.

  • achoo

    I totally agree with her. Getting an Education is just one part of going to college, the experience is another. I will never forget my college experience it’s something that I’ll always cherish.
