Emma Watson Graduates From Brown University

Congratulations to Emma Watson! The Harry Potter star has graduated from Brown University, Rhode Island with a degree in English Literature.

Watson confirmed the good news by sharing an obligatory graduation selfie via her Twitter page on Sunday night.

Yep, Emma can pull off a mortar board too...

Emma joined the university in 2009 and after five years of studying, the actress couldn't have looked happier as she celebrated her academic achievements.

In a recent interview with Elle magazine, she spoke about coping with critics who told her she could never graduate from an Ivy league college.

"I kept saying, 'I don't care.' This is what I want. And graduating will, for me, be really symbolic of all of that.

"I will be there. And I will be throwing a huge party. And getting very drunk."

There were no signs of champagne flowing in the pictures but still, we imagine Emma's graduation party was the most popular on the campus.


Emma also explained how other young actresses haven't had to deal with the same pressures as she did when playing her most famous role, Hermione Granger.

"There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being. And I'm so jealous!" she told Elle.

With one of the most successful movie franchises of all time and a degree under belt, something tells us Emma should be feeling a little more "complete" by now.
